New Mod Idea, under Wraps.

I will have more to come on this. I am Formulating a plan on how I might do it. But what I wanted to know, is anyone selling their 01' LX Focus Manual? I hate buying certain things from eBay.

(Nevermind, I don't know why I posted that here, and not the Buying thread!) >.<

I can but wanted to ask here first.

Anyways, so my question here is. The Dome light fades when you exit the car, or start the car. is this built into the computer? Inline, or in the light?

I eliminated the Light because I changed it out with an LED Blue one. However, I was curious were the fade was controlled? Maybe someone else made a how to? But I never saw one.

Anyways, I think this Mod will turn out sweet. Very much so, once I install an alarm in the car.

Stay tuned, and I should start getting some pics ready, and have the first part finished. Lets hope it works the way I want it to!

Well the Light that is in my dome now, actually fades when the car starts and the doors are closed. So I was thinking of just tapping after the fader for the project I am working on.

It's controlled by the Generic Electronics Module, I believe it's one of the pulsed power feed wires, if there is any blue, blue/red, or blue/white wires those are pulsed power feed wires. what year and model is yours? could be slightly different then the diagrams i have.
