Having a HR Wagon, there are 4 lights in the passenger compartment. 3 of them have switches that are 3 way. The rear most doesn't have a separate on/off control.
All 4 of these can be controled from the front, when the rear doors are closed. Turning them on / off, according to how the control switches are set at each light.
Problem is, not being able to reach those controls, especially if I'm outside the vehicle and don't want all of them to come on if I open the slider or one of the back doors.
What I would like to do is, still be able to control all the passenger compartment lights from the front, when the doors are closed. Still have the time out function work if I accidently leave a switch (see below) in the on position.
BUT , have an on / off switch on the "B" pillar that would control one of the front 3 passenger compartment lights. And the same for the back doors. So that when the slider is opened, no lights would come on, until I use that rocker switch to turn the one I have designated, on. The other two would stay off. When the back door is opened, no lights would turn on until I use a switch in the back to turn that rear most light (only) on.
Since the interior of my Wagon is currently in pieces anyway, I figured that if I can find out what wires (color) control what function for the overhead lights, I would see if they can put switches in and re-route the wiring.
Currently, if I have someone turn the front lights to the off position, the rear most light will still come on when a door is opened. And I can't control the ones turned off, from the front seat.
Any of you members that have been working with the interior lights, wagon or van, know what color wires control each function, at the individual lights?
Thanks for any help.
I know that you guys are trying to keep topics consolidated on this forum, so "all the information on a subject is in one place", but I think this is an entirely different subject that you are asking about here than what the OP posted. I really see no disadvantage to starting new threads for new issues, just as most other online forums do. IMO it actually is MUCH easier to keep track of more current information by the start date of the thread, and when a thread becomes more than a few pages long it becomes very cumbersome to sift through it for information. Threads like that also get very noisy with repeated inquiries because nobody will take the time to read the entire thing before commenting.
I do feel that the moderators should MOVE new threads to the appropriate section of the forum, for example moving purely technical questions out of the general discussion section to the technical discussions.
