What's your intent?.. there is no actual dome light wire its controlled thru lin bus.. so your best bet would be tap the wires at or near the closest bulb..

Wanting to wire in suspension lighting that will work in conjunction with the domelight ie: illum when you disarm, walk close to car w key fob...

Is there a how to on taking the domelight housing apart? I guess I could tap into there if I could get to the wires?

why don't you tap into fotwell lights. They seem to do the same thing.

Well I've gotten the hard part done. Suspension lighting is installed. Found domelight supervision is on LIN bus in this car.... Not neg. output like my IS-250... Tried tapping the footwell but it's a constant 12v so all it does is turn on the lights constant. Oh by the way suspension light input is 12v +...

I managed to find a 12v - domelight wire near the driver fusebox on my IS and I used a relay to switch it and it works perfect the lights come on when I get close to the car with the key, when the doors are open and using the Fob to unlock really looks good.... I'd like to hv the same on my LS! Any help would be appreciated.
