Illuminated door handles?    (Score: 1, Normal) 08-26-2015 23:55

All 4 exterior door handles and the 2 mirror puddle lights will illuminate with the interior dome light. So when locking or unlocking the car or with opening a door all the door handles and mirror lights will come on and go off slowly dimming with the interior dome.

Interior door handles will also be illuminated whenever the ignition is ON. regardless of door being open or shut or headlight on or off.







In the pics it was just a LED with a wire and a battery. Nothing installed yet. I'm still trying to figure that out...

Nice! I would love to have a similar setup on car's door handles.

Regendo has all that.

Door handles are expensive though and go wrong on some models.

But presumably, it's a matter of getting some that fit/are the correct colour.

Or do you simply drill holes into the existing ones?

Did this on my BMW.

I used Oznium surface mount LEDs with the super thin flat wires. Worked great. Wired up to the interior lights can fades on/off when I unlock.

Nope. Taps right into the 12v lines. Hardest part is probably running the wires through the door.
