Re: adding interior lights

Yes...but. Remember the door switch is the earth side so if you put the new lights between the wire after you cut it the new lights will go on and off with the doors opening and closing. If you add switches they will work for the existing and new lights. Essentially you can't use the wire to the switch to have interior lights that work independently from the existing ones (which I suspect is what you want).

Regards Blue

Re: adding interior lights

Get a 3 position switch so one side goes to the door switch and the other is "on" (like normal interior light switch).
