just wire in neon/led strips to the interior lighting. its not that hard. but word of warning, if their too bright and you drive with them on, be prepared to have a hard time seeing thro the reflection on your windows. ive wired mine up to the dome light, its good i open doors they come on, close the door, start the car, they turn off.

I have a BA xr6 with premium sound, couldnt find where to put those damn globes!
They should be under the glove box on the passenger side and under the fuse panel drivers side right?

If it's a Ute, you won't have them.

Otherwise, the globe holders if not factory installed will be taped up to the loom, go searching for them.

ive removed the undercar leds, they were a pain in the a***, scraped when parking, could see (the led strip) em from the back, and due to them being illegal in NSW i never really used them.

also ive done the interior neons i wired them up to the dome light so they only turn on with doors open. the wire i tapped into is the front driver side pillar, i used this because the dome wire is the only one in their so its easy to find, and is hidden.

i bought those blue neons a week or two ago and love them!!! i have them under the front and rear foot wells so the whole floor lights up!!! i havent hooked them up to the dome circuit yet and not too sure if i will, just sucks when u have to plug them in to see them. I also converted the two back and top centre interior lights to blue which is mad when u unlock the car at night :lol: i just use the neons for show when parked infront of friends haha now to save up for the rims :?

2. If you must...
a. If you've got premium sound or climate control, there'll be footwell light bulb sockets already, they may be hidden out of the way.
b. If not, you'll have to get the dome light wiring, look for the Black-Blue Stripe and Green-Yellow stripe wires. You can find these, at the BEM (behind the ICC), or behind the drivers side kick panel.


when you say the black-blue and green-yellow stripe wires which end is positive and which is negative. is it as easy as just connecting 1 terminal of the neons to the black-blue striped cable and the other to green-yellow?

If you have a multimeter you can tell (I don't have the manual in front of me right now), or hook them up, it'll work one way and not the other.

theirs a guide on the document section of this website. pretty much the easiest place to find/tap (ba falcon not sure about other models) into the dome light circuit is in the driver side front pillar.
