ok i have bulb holders now with about 2 cm of wire now all i need to do is get the wire, i was just wondering if 3mm 10 Amp wire will do both earth and live?

dude..... you're just f******g scary....... are you sure you should be touching anything on the car other than the keys, steering wheel and *maybe* the fuel filler?? (remember, fill up with unleaded)

oh, and dont forget, electricity only flows in one direction, so make sure you get both red AND black wire..... otherwise the lights wont work, and your car might catch fire too........ lol

i have read the doco but i tried the connectors under there but none of them worked and there is 2 8 pin-connectors there i could use and the doco doesnt explain how to put the wires into the connector or which exact connector to use.

What? Are we talking about putting the lamps under the glovebox, steering wheel and under the centre console.

well you see because you have a futura you wire it up in the steering column but because i have a pov pack (gli) i have to wire it into a connector.

Ok so now it works but it will not turn off unless car is on ACC. How do i fix this?

The lights stay on stay on until ACC is selected or the car is turned on. The Futura BEM (mid series or high series, I think Mid) has a fade out feature. The GLi just turns off after a while. But if its staying on a little while thats what you want. If its staying on for ages, check that a door isnt open and that you havent left your interior lights on.
