    Hi has anyone know, or in fact done, a mod whereby your sidelights come on when the car is unlocked? The feed would come from the interior courtesy light, and presumably switched by a relay? I'm just wondering if its already been done or how it could be done.

    I've seen that the coloured wires that go into the sidelights differ from thos that come from the relevent fuses in the fusebox, so there must be a relay or something in between where I'd need to connect to for the relay and switch?

    Well could be done easily, but as its linked in with the bulb warning, main headlight switch etc you'd be interupting these systems aswell

    The sidelights themselves have their own respective fuses so surely there is a way to send power to them from another circuit, when the light switch is off?
