I recovered a lighting for my glove compartment which I did not have.
But where must I connect wire so that the glove compartment ignites when I open it without the contact being put.
Thanks for answer me.
excuse me for my bad english but I am french

You want it to work without the engine running then? Easiest place is proberbly from the headunit live feed. only have to run the wire along the bottom of the glovebox then

Personally id just use the wiring for the ignition live. Its tucked up in wiring that runs along the bottom of the glove box, If i can remeber right. Well its their, or in the side pannel in the passenger side footwell

I suggested using it as its the most recognisable wire that people will be able to find. If i tell you to use the rear wiper live thats tucked away in the loom and trunking, it'll be a pain in the arse to find

Also the HU live is a fairly chunky wire, and the HU only feeds about 10A off it, so it'll easily cope. Other lives (and there isnt that many) like the interior light wire, are way too thin for my liking. Maybe im just over cautious
