Wiring Question: Can AAC Footwell Lights be wired to ambient controls AND a switch?

Quick question. Dotting all my i's and crossing my t's ;P

Trying to mentally figure out how I want this wired. Can the interior footwell lighting be hooked up to the ambient control system (brightness and dash lights toggle) AND also maybe put in a switch in between? (If the footwell ever gets annoying being on 24/7, so I can just shut it off?)

Yes it can. I believe it is the purple wire in the door panel. Then just wire a switch between that and the light.

I'm not sure you would want to dim footwells if they are CCFL...you could damage the inverter. IF its LED its a different story tho...LED's can dim. And yes a switch can be done...you may also need a diode in there as well.

yeah, its LED. Thanks for the input. This is how Im going to wire it. Now I just have to see if someone has a DIY on it already on taking apart the wiring and how to install the switch. Another member posted the ambient lighting switch schematic, so that will help.

hardest part now I think is actually getting the console apart to get to the wires
