    k thats the part that i did a little differently. i didn't use a jumper and my relay is a bit different. i gotta go look again lol.

    the IGN 12V is so you can turn it on on command using a switch. this is the part i did differently. its basically just another route for your power to get to your lights, overriding the relay.

    i've changed it up since then.

    the door triggers are negative charge, so i used a three way switch to switch the grounds instead of using a relay.

    i have a writeup buried somewhere in my build thread.
