Angel eye question

I have Angel eyes that I wired to the Interior lights so they can dim on and off upon unlocking and locking the car. I would like then to dim from full bright to completely off without the shut off at about 30% dim or so.


Here is what I am talking about

On my angel eyes I basically have 1 ground and 2 positive connections, One of the positive I wired to the ECU box, and the other to the interior light just under the glove box. If you only have 1 positive and 1 ground then my guess is that you can cut into the positive and wire it to the interior lights, I think it would work just fine but I am not completely sure.

It is actually quite simple only took about 5 min to wire to the interior lights.

I am not very good with electronics so don't mind my poor wording

Only thing is that if your interior lights are on, so are your angel eyes but it doesn't bother me too much
