Foot well Lighting

Postby PeSTo » Sat Oct 19, 2013 3:16 pm

Hello Guys i am looking to pop some foot well lighting up to the roof light in my Ford Figo Trend 2013

I would like to know if anyone might have worked on something like this before and might be able to help

Thanks

Hey Duncan

I tried doing a DIY Footwell LED on my ex-clio sport I had. Didn't work too well as I blew the fuse. Guess the amps the LED pulled was as bit too much. There is a propper way of connecting it with the correct clips on to the roof light, just make sure to upgrade the fuse. Should be a easy enough job should you be a bit electronically orientated.

Going to do the LED footwell story to my Fiesta in the new year.

about half way down that post

led strip from chinatown R50,
2 metres of speaker cable R30
glue from builders warehouse.

run the speaker cables from your overhead map light around your roof lining and windscreen....down your A-Pillar, under your glove box and steering wheel.

because its wired to yuor map light, hen you open the door, it turns on, when you lock/close door....it fades out like your overhead light does.


no blowing of fuses, no extra power needed.

Howsit bud! I actually moved to Pretoria (Moot) about a month ago and haven't updated my profile yet.
I am however still in the area every now and then visiting mates, so I'd be more than willing to assist :)

Drop me a PM and we'll arrange something. I'll be done with exams in 3 weeks :D

Haha well the Moot is no problem either, since my parents live there and I'm going to house sit while they are gone for the holiday. I am not able to PM yet but if you can PM me your email or something it would be great :)

I also did the footwell led's in my mk7 fiesta as well as under the front seats for the passengers at the back, was very easy to install just soldered the wires in the front map light.
