Im trying to wire up my footwell lights and having some trouble finding this mystery light green wire! there are loads under the dash. so i have done a sketch looking at the fuse box with the connectors numbered.


I-------------------------I
I 1 I
I-------------------------I

I-------------------------I
I 2 I
I-------------------------I

I-------------------------I
I 3 I
I-------------------------I

I-------------------------I
I I
I Fuse Box I
I I
I-------------------------I

Which one of the conectors numered 1 - 3 does the light green wire come from??

Also am i right in thinking that the light green wire is a switched earth? or is it a switched live??

Its sending me potty!!!

thanks in advance

Ive Had another thought, the plug which the Honda type footwell lights plugs into has spade connections, using small crimps with ends to match, would it be possible to wire up the footwell lights using this?

Im still struggling to find the correct wire!

Does anyone have a photo of the actual connector i need to use.

I looked at a pdf how to and it says to use the vehicle 6 pin connector, light blue, the diagram shows it connecting towards the firewall if you know what i mean, as opposed accross the car??

is this right? cos i cant find this light blue connector!!

I did however find a white connector with a light green wire, but this only had 0.4v on it!

As an addition . .
Is the connector with the light green wire connected to the fusebox or is it seperate?

I'm not sure what you're trying to do but the easiest thing would be to wire them to the light in the glove box.

I will have a look for the how do, it's pretty simple and took me about an hour.
