I installed a couple of strip lights in the door sill, right under the word Riviera . I was wondering the best way to wire them up so that they turn on when the door is open. I was just going to wire them into the door light, but that invloves running a lot of wire for the lights. Is there an easy place that I can wire into. I looked at the fuse box and after removing the fuse and noticing that all of my lights still worked I figured I would ask on here

you kind of have to wire them into the door light, because the lights are actually controlled by a lighting "module" (read - a small computer).

IIRC next to the fuse block. But I don't remember actually and can't get to my manuals ATM. Someone else will chime in, no doubt.

okay, thanks...might just be easier to wire into the door if it's by the fuse block
