    Combined courtesy and ambient lighting (white/red light)

    Thoughts please... I'd like courtesy AND ambient lighting that is white and red respectively. I figured I could modify these by replacing the switch function with a relay of some kind that switches between off/red/white...

    Looking to source 8 x LED Touch lights in warm white. However, I'm struggling to find some that default to ON. I.e.

    Team Ambient (put that light out, I'm driving)

    As winter's hitting and the nights are drawing in, it's a good time to get sorting the ambient lighting in the van. There's loads of threads on how, so no need for more guides, but how about showing us what you got? Trying to capture the effect is difficult too. HINT: if it's visible in...

    Ambient lighting LEDs too bright

    I’ve fitted white LEDs to both the door lock handle and pull handles but they are a bit too bright. Any ideas how to dim them down a bit? Perhaps an additional resistor or something?

    Hi, numpty electrics question; I'm thinking of installing red warning lights in the front doors.
