Hi first post :-)

Getting my new Tekna 4WD tomorrow. In true jumping the gun spirit I've gone and bought some side-bars. Very similar to the genuine Nissan ones, but without the LED's and 1/3rd of the price ! Would have loved the Nissan ones but just couldn't justify the cost.

Question is, I've bought some external 10mm LED's that would do the job as 'puddle' lights but has anyone fitted the genuine side bars and could maybe tell me where the LED wires route into the cabin and where they pick up the light feed from ? Perhaps someone has done aftermarket ones that could pass on any tips they learnt ?

I've read somewhere about a pickup for the interior light, from a control unit wire in the footwell or something from memory but wondered if the genuine ones have a custom sub-loom that I could copy.

Thanks

I have side bars fitted. Hubby did toy with the idea of fitting LED's to them... Guess he had second thoughts

I wouldn't mind knowing how they could be connected.

You'd probably just tap into the interior lights. Or find a power source and use the door switch for the earth.
