I finally got around to wiring my footwell neons today with an unexpected result.
Firstly when I say neons I actually mean CCFL's.
Below is a diagram of how I did it:
Also although I'm aware you wire the poles of the 3way rocker to the opposite side of the position you want, for ease of diagram and explaination I have just labelled them and will refer to them at the positions shown in the diaram.
Now when the switch is at position II the lights come on - as expected.
When the switch is at position 0 the lights are permenantly off - as expected.
When the switch is at position I the lights come on when you unlock the car, along with the courtesy light, and fade in time with the courtesy light. They also turn off when you lock the car as expected, and also turn on when you open the doors as expected.
All sounds very predicatable. I stood back and admired my handy work.
I left the switch at position I as is my intention. Now when I just went to see my mate, when I started the car I found that the footwells turn on with the headlights??
They dont fade over time and the only way to get them off is to either put the switch into position 0 or to turn the headlights off - neither of which are ideal for what I was trying. I want to leave the switch in position I pretty much all of the time and not have to turn to 0 everytime I need to use the headlights??
Any ideas? If it matters, I have AFL with the sight and light pack - and remember they are CCFL not neons.
Thanks for any advice.
