    This truck is a work truck - not a lot of fancy mod's here, but it's getting the job done!
    I need some help with wiring lights for the outside of my truck - I am going to put LED's on the outside (and maybe a couple inside).

    Here's what I want the lights to do:

    remote unlock truck: lights on
    start truck: lights off
    remote lock truck: lights off
    toggle switch in cab: lights on/off
    open door: lights on/off

    But, I'd also like to turn off the lights if the door is open with the toggle switch... complicated enough??



    I'll be using LED lights from Oznium because I like the products so far (see my build thread in signature)

    I understand how to connect wires, how to wire single switch to multiple lights, etc.

    I don't understand wiring jargon or symbols on diagrams - please use simple terms for labeling and explanations - thanks.


    I'm not afraid of doing the work, I look forward to the education - please help me with this question!!!

    Yes - it's some sort of aftermarket thing that the PO had installed... Works well... it beeps and flashes the running lights and everything...

    I can figure out where the power (that makes my lights flash) is coming from for the remote on my own... but, taking that power and doing the what I want to do with it is beyond me...

    what i'm looking for is a wiring diagram of what I said in my original post that is easy to understand... I may be asking the impossible...
