    Automated Cabin FootLight

    This DIY enables ample cabin foot light, which not only helps in ingress and exgress to passenger and driver in night time, but it also looks uber cool :) It operates similarly to how the main cabin lights works. That is when user opens the door the footlight will automatically glow up, and will dim off in few seconds when the door is closed. Similarly if based on your operations on cabin light switch the led foot lights will behave exactly the same way as the cabin light works.

    The entire DIY doesnt require any wire cutting or any additional equipment to get this working :) And since I am able to do it, i guess most of us can do it :)


    Stuffs required

    1. 3meter wire (approx)
    2. 2pcs of 24 Led (or more) strips.

    Sorry for poor quality of pics, there was to much light outside to capture any decent shot. It looks much better in complete darkness.


    A detailed set of steps and pics about how to go for it coming very soon ...
    Feel free to share you comments, views and feedbacks.

    great work. orange gels with the console lighting.
  6. Great work, I am also contemplating this however more for the rear seats. The rears seats are pretty dark in GP with the dome lights more for the front seat. Looking forward to the DIY steps.
