I've fitted them to my 5 door, didn't have the loom in place, but I just wired them straight to the illumination for the window switch. Easy easy, just cut back a little insulation and soldered (Y)

Hang on!?!?! Got the wrong end of the stick here, I already have interior door handle lights, thought these were for outside door handle lights
I shall go back to what I do best..... Doing nothing:look::look:

:lol: There are no external door handle lights made by Vauxhall. It has been known for a small hole to be drilled in the door and a bright LED mounted in his hole to make the handle glow... but needs some balls to drill into your door...
That I do have, and I like a challenge, so which led would be recommended and where would they be wired off to come on when I unlock the car

I think if there is no loom there best place for the wires is to tap into the interior light that comes on when you unlock the doors?

Not sure about what LED to use TBH. I think ibrahmix has done this a few times, so he might be able to advise.

As for wiring it up, piggyback off the interior light as that comes on when you unlock the car or open the door. (Y)
yeah and still doing it :lol:

have so far fitted to vw corrado,mk2 golf,honda accords,civics,astra mk4s and mk5s,audis,zaffy,corsa and got to fit it on a q7 and a q5 for a mate at work :lol:
