Not from 87A as that's normally closed.Negative for your lights is any chassis ground or solid brown wire,87 is positive out to your lights.
thanks very much.
i also maybe need to mention that ive got a
seperate switch wired into the circuit that powers my glovebox
light and sunvisor vanity lights, so even when the doors are
shut i can switch them on with that button, or they stay on when doors are unlocked with the central locking. the glovebox light is powered seperately from the
positive of the ashtray and to the switched ground with the vanity lights.
the moment its working EXACTLY how i want without the relay and just one extra festoon footwell
light attached but i just remembered id taken the main centre interior festoon bulb out all this time which is maybe why it was running fine. if i really need the relay I have to find the correct way to wire it in
with this extra seperate switch ive got.
can i join the blue grey wire safely at 85 with the other switch negative wire as below,
forgive the really dodgy temporary wiring i was just testing it out
(black/blue is the blue/grey from pillar and grey is the red/blue) the red wire joined on 85 is the negative from my switch that controls my glovebox/vanity lights also. and 87 is the output lights. 30 is the positive side of my other switch...
BUT tbh i dont think i need the additional +ve feed on 30 or 87 if i just add
the footwell lights to the 85 and 86 either side of the relay it still works how i want it to and it seems to also be protected by the relay? it was making that buzz sound you were on about when lights fade off/on is it possible to run the relay that way without connecting 30 and 87 up, the fuse inside should still protect the circuit? I don't really want to source another 12v supply if its not needed.
So basically the vanity lights, footwell lights and glovebox light come on with the central locking
