I didn't think my ambient lighting was fitted at first. It is very dim and you can only see it when you look very closely in the dark. At first I thought it was just a bit of reflection across the door, but I could see it was a light when I looked closer. Have another look when it's dark and see if you can spot it then.

18 inch bi-colour alloys, Parking Pack, Smartphone holder, Steel spare wheel, Driving assistance pack 1, Keyless entry and start, IntelliLux LED headlights, Power driver's seat. Collected 10/6/16.

I'm going to try and find a brighter led as the OE one is a bit dim

We managed to get the wiring of door leds from the window opening switch. We found the 12v live cable and test it for illumination switch. It works well and properly when you want to decrease the light also.

Excellent work i think you might find the leds wont come on when you open the doors, my way does but is more fiddly

Hi, so I've checked my door loom for pin 38 and from what I can see I don't have it so does this mean I can't do this mod thanks Rob

You could do it the same way as Melih by tapping into the window switch illumination circuit.

Thanks for getting back to me cornishtaz so I've actually got a zafira tourer 63 plate not an Astra this is the only how to I could find on fitting these door Leds do you know if the pin would be different?. I took the plug out of the door piller and there seems to be pins in parts of that but no wires going to them from the plug part. I've attached photos
Thanks Rob

Its possible the wiring may be different on the Zafira. Next time I'm TIS online I'll have a look
