Question Attn Paultg!!! Trunk Light question

Hey! I was toying twith the idea of putting a trunk light in my Impreza (1995 2.2L L AWD)and I had a question for you. There is a black plug/harness hanging aroung in my trunk that has 2 ports in it that look like this: _I

Is there a way I can use this to make a light? Thanks, please post here or email me at [email protected]

Kevin - I too have the trunk light... It should work for your car. For the $40 or less for the trunk light - You really should just order it, instead of making your own. It's a new plate with a striker switch (that would be a pain to fabricate) and a little light in a plastic housing. The switch (from the blue plug in the front of the trunk) grounds the negitive side of the light, and completes the circut - lighting the bulb. That black connector should be 12v+ and nothing - that nothing goes to the switch. When grounded - light dawns!

It's payed for itself every time I get groceries. - Kris

Sorry for the late reply, I was away all weekend.
Here are the Subaru Part numbers and what I paid:
84611GA000 (Trunk Light and bulb) = $24.94
57531FA000 (Trunk latch with switch) = $23.72

You could probably order them from subaruparts.com and get better prices, but you need to pay shipping.

I am too tired to look at the conneter now (I drove back from NJ 3am-8am today), but will check it out when I go down to unload the car.

Thanks a bunch...I will keep those numbers handy as I just bought Hella 500's. When the cash flow gets going again (job starts in a week or so) then I will investigate the possibilities. Im trying not to tap into my Brat savings too much though.....Thanks again,
