    General illumination information and questions

    Any of you guys/gals got Armrest storage illumination?

    If so, can you get some pics of it please?

    For any one else who is interested in this option, the part number is 8E0 971 196. Thats for the wiring harness with LED. So not sure if its got the mounting bracket for the arm rest.....I'm not even sure how it fixes to the armrest, hence the request for pics.

    Thanks.

    EDIT:=- This is fitted to all A4s from 2001 - 2009.

    Is this a factory or retro fit,was it a factory option. I'm locked in to this as It sounds a worth while mod.

    I have a small red LED in the armrest which comes on with the lights if thats what you mean? It gives a similar glow to the ashtray illumination and ambient led's.

    Can probably get some pics tomorrow if you like.

    But you can retro fit it with the part number above.

    I am assuming all this and only going by ETKA. I have found it mentioned in a couple of threads years ago but nothing recent and no real information.

    EDIT:=- Going by my ETKA its only 28.

    I've never really understood this "Light Pack" thing, mine has door marker lights and armrest illumination, but didn't have ambient lights, puddle lights or footwell lights as standard!

    I would have thought that they would be the main parts of the "Light Pack" and the bits you have the extra bits.
    All seems a bit back wards to me.

    Door marker lights?
    The lights in the door handles?

    The lights on the edge of the door that light up when you open them so they show up to passing traffic, sometimes reflectors are fitted in their place.

    That's strange! I have the Light Pack option, and it has door marker lights, armrest illumination, ashtray, ambient, puddle and footwell lights.
    Yours is the same year as mine - so I would have thought that the Light Pack included everything!
    The only lights I haven't got are rear ambient lights - don't know if they were ever factory fitted or not.
    Oh, and is the light that comes on when the sun visor mirror is uncovered part of the light pack?
    I have both those as well.

    Yeh I don't think I have the light pack fitted, there's no mention of it in the codes decoder either.

    Rear LED's were never OEM fitted.

    The lights they fit seem a bit random really.

    My B5 has Door markers front and rear, front foot well lights, sun visor mirror lights (on the visors, so much better than in the roof I think), front and rear map reading lights.
    Soon to have rear foot well lights, air vent wheel illumination and may be the arm rest illumination.
    I would like door door handle illumination but think its going to be to hard to retrofit to a B5.

    Can any one get me a pic of their armrest light please?
    And their door handle illumination.
    Thanks.

    I do not have Ambient Light package, so did not have vent illumination, front ambient lights, cup holder illumination, vanity mirror lights, footwell lights, puddle lights, door handle lights but do have illumination in the armrest and door markers!
    Retrofitted these little items all but vanity mirror roof lights, door handle lights and puddle lights.
    Rear Ambient lights as mentioned never OEM - but done that too.

    I did look into door handle lights but read on other forums the illumination is pretty low and hardly worth all the effort - never found a "how to" or pictures on this either.

    I've changed the title a little bit cause there seems to be more interest in the over all illumination extras with in the cab than just the armrest and the need for more information on each item.

    Could we possible build up an image libary of the illumination items?

    Vent illumination
    Front ambient lights
    Rear ambient lights
    Cup holder illumination
    Vanity mirror lights
    Front foot well lights
    Rear foot well lights
    Door handle lights
    Armrest illumination
    Front puddle lights
    Rear puddle lights
    Front door markers
    Rear door markers
    Ashtray illumination

    I think thats it, have I missed any?

    Thanks for giving me the opportunity to clear all the crap out of my armrest...... It's not the easiest thing to photograph, but these will give you an idea. The LED is quite bright at night:

    With the possible exception of door handle lights I'm sure everything else has been covered in here at some time. A lot of the guides such as footwell & marker lights, vent illumination, cupholder illumination etc are in the DIY guides sticky. Have a look in there and if there are any obvious omissions let me know and I'll try and dig out the threads and add them.

    You can always then link the pictures of the lights into there and compile a guide

    Id be happy with just having an arm rest. just out of interest is the arm rest part of the centre console or is it fitted to the top of the console. but i know what you mean it is quite cool all these little lights everwhere looks smart.

    thats not a dig by the way, i haven't got an arm rest and i'd quite fancy one
