Fitting Interior Light Timer Fade out to EA

I was just wondering if anyone has fitted the interior light timer fade out to their EA's.
Did any of the Falcon range actually come out with it and is it easy to install?

Lets go find that Hotdog tree I planted

Perhaps it could be wired to run off the ignition switch light. I mean the one that makes the green circle glow. This stays on for a while after the door is shut but I don't know if it fades off.

Im pretty sure all fairmont ghias(EA-EL-AU) had it. And my futura also has it. I think its all part of the BEM, so it will be quite difficult to "swap" a gli one with a ghia one...

There is, however, a kit you can get from jaycars for around $10-$11 which you assemble yourself. Theres two different circuits you can build, and I heard that for e series, you need to build the negative triggered version.

I had one in my XF, but it never functioned properly and when it did work, there was always a little flash of the light when the doors shut and the circuit kicked in. Not very factory like for my likings so I removed it.

Re: Fitting Interior Light Timer Fade out to EA

What model EA have you got? GL's didnt come with a Central controler (know in EB series 2 up as BEM) and from what I have seen of GL wiring it is difficult to wire Central controler (I have wired Central locking,Power Mirrors and Trip Computer into my brothers GL) Unfortunately the GL isnt like the old XD - XF 's in terms of wiring loom in those models if you wanted an extra option it usually meant just pluging it in but the GL's wiring loom is very basic the loom that runs thru dash has a lot less wires compared to Ghia.

1988 EA Fairmont Ghia 4.0l (1996 EF) with EA Injection Single drivebelt conversion , Borg Warner T5 5 speed.

Re: Fitting Interior Light Timer Fade out to EA

I know it's a little old but anyway. Has anybody fitted the light-fader from a EBII/ED Fairy into a GLi? What's it take to do it?

Re: Fitting Interior Light Timer Fade out to EA

got no idea, but the freaky thing is, my EF GLi fades out if i unlock the car (the lights comes on) and if i don't get in, the light will fade out after a while, but if i get in and wait for it to go off, it just turns off!

All EF's and EL's have it regardless of model.
