Stuck in RICER interior LED mod...

RICE!!!

Anyhow... I am putting LEDs inside my cab in a couple places while I install audio and some shit.

Before the switches for the LEDs themselves, I want to put a switch that when I press it to one side makes my LEDs come on when the door opens, and if I press it to the other side, to make them turn on always. In the one that they are always turned on always, I will control them with a switch that comes after this switch...

I am planning on using a ON ON switch for this.

ON 1 would go to whatever wire makes them turn on when doors open

ON 2 would be to perhaps ignition

Then I would use the part that would usually be the source for the switch, to go to the LED. I am basically inverting the switch... if this is possible.

Anyhow, any ideas what wires I need to splice on to make this happen? The coming on with the doors thing... Thanks!

Hmmm.

Ill be more specific. What wire do I need to splice in, so that lights turn on only when the doors open?

First, you have 4 doors, which means there are 3 wires that activate the interior light: Driver door ground pin (Green with Yellow tracer), Passenger (Red with Black Tracer) and rear Left & Right passenger doors are parallel circuit.(Pink with Black tracer).
Second, you may choose to run a wire up to the cab light and connect it to the switch side of the light (One spot) making the added LED's do what ever the overhead/interior light does [ON with doors open and dimming OFF, ON or always OFF. This added wire would be your LED ground tap.

Oh hi, boricua!

Thanks, that is exactly what I needed to know.

So this is what my wiring would look like. I would use an add a fuse for the ignition take. For the dome light ill use an inline fuse as well.

Does this look ok?



I am using ON - OFF - ON switches for the LEDs themselves, since I want to be able to use both a functional white when needed, or a nice red if I want to do a show or something. The LED's will be divided this way:

2 White and 2 Red on each side of the front foot-wells, this will be in one switch.

1 White and 1 Red in the bottom of the center console, looking back. Might also use 1 White and 1 Red for the front cupholders and have it on the same switch.
the rear seats where my subs will shortly be, this will be the last switch.
2 White and 2 Red for below

Basically I want full control of the LEDs.

No problem...
If you want the LED's to behaive like the interior lights you'll need a constant ON not IGN HOT.
Source could be pins 2 or 7 (both white) on connector 1E (black) in interior fuse box/Driverside Junction Box.
If you only what the ON with Dimming OFF then t-tap pin 9 (blue) on connector 1E to the ON-OFF-ON switch.

Lots of ways to get the mod done...
