I'm sort of in the same boat you are. I have great plans for the interior lights on my xB I intend on wiring them to up to turn on with the headlights and to turn on when you open the doors. I've got the relays and I've got my wiring diagram drawn out, well a rough sketch at any rate.

First off, I would suggest going with cold cathode ranther than led's. The light is much better. You can mount the tubes under the dash and under the front seats. Run your power/ground wires to the lighter connection and tap into it there. As for turning them on with the headlights, you may want to avoid this since some police officers will pull you over if they feel the light is interfering with your vision. It would be best to have them on a sperate switch so you can turn them on and off. When you're done it may look something like this...



Randode is a great supplier of cold cathodes.

Good luck and post pics when you're done!

Well I've got my XM running off of the Lighter. I want them to be on at night with the headlights, I could add another switch to shut them off if I needed to. As far as getting pulled over by the cops I should be ok.

i already got my led lights 4 pc so i'll try to hook them up. i am going to have to hook it up with a switch and fuse. i might be able to hook it up to the fuse box. i would like to put the switch under the seat where you can't see it but and turn it on and off. but i have to wait to get my xb from the shop.

Be carefull when taping into things. Toyota uses both + and - relays, (example: Head/fog lights are on a neg, parking lights are on a pos) you could f things up.
