Flush Mount Switches

You can always use one of our flush-mount toggle switches to turn the lights on and off so that you don't get pulled over. You can check them out here:

Like Jessica said, just put it on a switch. That is what most of our customers do!

Ok, for the DIY lets start off with what this ambient lighting kit includes:


The CCFL Tube and a Power Inverter are the main components of this kit. DC power from the car goes into the inverter where it is inverted into usable AC power for the tube.

You simply connect the Red wire to any 12V power source and the Black wire to a ground. Then connect the white output wires to the CCFL tube via the included connector.

These strips can be mounted anywhere on the car including the grill, trunk, under the dash, under the seats, etc. We will concentrate on the footwells here.

First you will need to determine what power source you want to activate the tubes. In this case we will use a switch to turn them on/off. We will get the power for the switch from the fuse block in the driver side dash.

1) First locate the fuse panel cover



.

.

.
2) Then remove the fuse box cover



.

.

.

3) In this case we are going to tap our power off of the fuse box to power our switch:



.

.

.

Here is a quick diagram to illustrate the wiring:





If you are using just 1 inverter it is the same but with just 1 inverter instead of 2.

*It is also very important to note that you should never leave the output end of the inverter disconnected while the input is connected. The inverter needs to be connected to the CCFL when it is powered, do not leave it disconnected.*

4) Switch Location
You can mount the switch wherever you wish, we chose to put it on the driver right side kick panel near the console.
This way it is out of sight but easily accessible to the driver.



.

.

.


5) Mounting the CCFL Tubes.
In this case we used the adhesive pads to contact under the dash and a small tie strap to add support in the middle so that the tube does not sag. You do NOT want to tighten this strap, simply use it for support. If you tighten it you run the risk of damaging or cracking the tube.

6) Your finished installation will look something like this:








So which fuse slot did you use,was it the 15 slot

Any slot on that block is ignition power.
