    rear door handle illumination

    Hello all, I have purchased s4 rear door cards with the led's built into the handles. I have converted the doorcard from electric window to manual but due to not having the control module.(as my windows are manual) how can I wire the led's up to come on woth vehicles lights? Can I tap onto a wire somewhere?

    Cheers shaun

    The lights are just plug and play all you need is the correct loom for the door card, failing that tap the connector out with a multimeter and wire yourself

    You could just run a wire to the front doors, and piggyback of those handles couldn't you?

    It might be a job best done when changing the seats then you can run the wires easier. I don't mind giving you a hand if you can do it on a day I'm off. I always find two pairs of hands are best when feeding wires.

    Front end is all fitted, but I'm holding off fitting the rear springs for now as I want to pick up some new shocks to fit at the same time.
    I wouldn't mind an RS4 ARB to fit too while I'm there
