Glove Box Light!?

Does any one know of a clean and simple mod that installs a light in the glove box that doesn't mess with wires or drain the battery.

Do you have the "mood lighting" package on your car for the footwells and armrests? you could tap off one of those and mount a single LED in the glove box.

Keeripes, where you going to mount that monster of a thing, Yettie? One single LED tapped into the same circuit for the mood lighting or interior light'll do it. No motion activated silliness, just on all the time the key's on, which you can't see b/c the door's closed.

Yes i do! I also thought this. What would the best way to tap into it? I don't want to cut cables or create a drain on the battery.

Not sure where the best place to tap in would be, but as long as you tap into a power source that is only hot while the car is on, you shouldn't have to worry a drain on the battery.

Exactly and a simple scotchlock is fine for this.
