AW: AW: [DML] Bright Lights behind AC Control

The wires, resistor and relay are behind the passenger seat.
Of course you can cut the wire clos to the bulbs and connect 
it to that poti/dimmer.
The idea is great, no doubt.

But I would measure the current and temperature of that thing
before putting it back together. That "dimmer" is just a resistor 
and heats up. The more bulbs are attached to it, the more current goes 
thru it, the more power is lost on it, the hotter it gets !

So before toasting it - test it.  ( way more work than cutting....)

Is there not a "power" wire to the console lights? That is the wire that
is/was connected to the ignition switch. Turn the key on, the climate
control panel lights up. That is the wire the dealer moved to the climate
control panel dimmer switch on my car MANY moons ago. Climate control panel
lights go on with the headlights, brightness controlled same as the
instrument panel. Ta- DAAA! MUCH more efficient. Drive Stainless Robert VIN
