    Right got a question. For christmas i got some blue neons for my car. Iv fitted 2 into my boot so much brighter than the standard light that was in there and gives it a really nice blue glow at night so pleased with that. Iv still got 2 more tho. Heres my question i want them in the front footwells. Can i have them come on at night when i turn my headlights on but also when i open my doors during the day like the standard footwell bulb does? Or will this be impossiable? so when its day time they come on when i open my doors and turn off when the doors are shut like the footwell and roof light do now and also come on when i turn my headlights on?

    how would i do it tho cuz if i wire them up to the headlights they will only come on when i turn the headlights on not when i open the doors and if i wire them to the light thats already under my footwells they will only come on when i open the doors. If i wire them to both will that work or will it over power them?

    I am sorry I try to help but every time I see the blue writing with funny font it puts me off so have been unable to read what the problem is yet

    you can put a two dioides in the circuit so it cant back feed through the circuits just put one on the feed for when u open the door and one for when the lights are switched on and join them together and go into the neon
