Drawing 12v from ambient lights


New Member
Oct 24, 2021
Hi folks! I have this console RGB lights which connects to the lighter / 12v outlet in the center console. However, because I usually have Sentry mode activated, this means them too are pretty much always on. I'd much rather them to be only ON when ambient lights are on too. So my question is would it be possible to draw power from the ambient lights / footwell lights to power these lights? Or would that mess up the circuitry or something.
