convert the power supply that your current trunk lighting is using... the light in the passenger side trunk goes ON and OFF depending on if your trunk is OPEN or CLOSED

by using that switch and the electricity from it... you've killed two birds with one stone thumbsup

just take out the CLIPPED side panel ( the one with the lines on it) and reach around to the lighting assembly and push it out... (or you might have to remove the dome cover and the light bulb and there is a screw behind it - i don't remember exactly, but it wasn't too difficult to figure out)

since I wanted to still use the functionality of the switch on my neons - I just removed the light bulb and then tapped my wires directly to the prongs that the bulb was sitting in grin
