The button on the door switches ground. The sills must be wired to a constant 12v source, which can be found in the fusebox (use the interior illumination fuse).

The either one will work. The one in the engine bay you can get to through the hood. The one in the trunk... well it's in the trunk under the floor mat.

Well I just finished wiring the sills up took 72min to do, at a nice lesurely pace. I took my own approach and taped into the rear passanger over head light. When one door opens the will all light up, which doesnt bother me. I took pics and will write up a DIY thread on it.

To install a iluminated door sills. You can find the istructions in the Publication section of Benzworld. To get 12 volt you can tap it from the rear lights in the ceiling. So everytime you open the doors, the door sills will go on. Check it out.

I brought some a few week's ago from ebay; they look very keeping with the car. Polished stainless with neon blue AMG logo.

One quick point about wiring them up to the interior light door switch plungers.

These switches work on a negative earth, so all you need to do it tap into any live wire running down each side and then wire the earth into the switch. (Because these switch are also wired into the central locking system you will find the light's will remain on when the ignition key in on, but when removed they will switch off).

Later

It's relatively easy, take off all the door sills, rear lower seat bench and rear upper seat back, coverings on the bottom of the b pillars and tap the front door switches there, and tap the rear door switches, then wire each positive wire to a constant power wire in the door sill which you can find with a voltage test light.

With tapping the door switches, there will be two or three wires, my front doors had three and the rear doors had two wires, two will be brown and one will be twin coloured or one will be brown and the other will be twin coloured. Regardless of how many wires there are, tap the twin coloured wire to the negative door sill wire.

Doing it this way will allow each sill to be lit up independently depending on what door is open. Also when you set the interior lights to be off when you enter the car the door sills will still light up if you want that.

I bought mine from *************.com
