W114 courtesy welcome lights

Hi,

I want to install these courtesy welcome lights when you open the door to project the mercedes logo on the ground.
Where can I tap in to have them light up when i open the door?

Thank you.

I don't know, but those are very cool. Bling bling! I wouldn't mind having a few of those around. Where did you find them?

You may have to tap into the courtesy light by the rearview mirror. I do not recall if it actually activates when the door is open or is just off/on switched. That is about the only live wired location I can think of, though it may not be. IIRC, everything is dead until you turn the key.

You can get power from the cabin light by the rear view mirror - this means the lights will be up there somewhere. If you'd rather put them under the dash (might have a better effect since they'd be shining down into a dark footwell) you'd have to find the line going from the door jamb switch on it's way up to the cabin light - I don't think that would be hard but you might have to remove the board on the outside of the footwell. I'd try the passenger side first since there's much less going on there.

Good luck.
