LED Lighting in the armrest

Post by lapalmeraie » Tue May 04, 2021 8:09 am

A new project, a switched lamp in the armrest.
It goes on when the armrest is open and it goes off when you close it.
Very handy to find your things when it is dark.

I have a motion activated rechargeable LED light in the boot - much easier to install! And since it's magnetic I can take it out and use it under the bonnet. Or just as a torch.

Gloucester, I tend to agree with you as I also have installed a Rear Movement Light in the Rear (Battery Operated) just a Magnetic Holder Screwed or Double Sided Taped in position - Done !
If you are electrically minded and have the time to do LaPalmeraie Modification ✅ that is another good solution to the problem - Dave 👍😉

Hi guys!
Well of course it's always easier to just have a plug & play light. The arm rest isn't that big however and I didn't want to clutter it any more.
Other argument in my favor is that this mod only costed me like €3,- :lol:

And most of all, the main reason to do it, because it is just so much fun to do :D
