Puddle/Courtesy lights

Junkman or whoever......

OK I'm on the horns of a delima...I want to install some puddle/courtesy lights that come on when I open the doors, but where the heck is the switch or connection that turns the interior light's on when they open normally?

What about the switch or sensor that says "Door Ajar", where's it?

Maybe I'm looking at the wrong schematics but I can't even locate the wiring.

Your days of robbing the 7-11 are done now. They would spot you easily now. But it does look good

I used to think that I had learned patience as I got older. Then I realized that I just didn't give a shit

Smithers, unleash the hounds!
Edelbrock E-Force 1593 & Magnaflow exhaust for that healthy American sound. Before SC 354 RWHP, after SC 484 RWHP. That's all I can do and still pass California smog.
