Adding automatic dome lights to a shell
Hi everyone. I picked up a truck cap/shell off the local classifieds for a steal of a deal and would like to add some automatic dome lights. The shell has the glass windows on the sides that lift open and the rear glass. I would like to add three dome light circuits to the shell, trick is that I want different lights on at different times.
Here is the scenario that I am thinking of. If the cargo lamps, or the rear glass is open, I want all three circuits on, if either of the side doors are open, I only want that sides lights on.
Without using a bunch of relays, I am having just a little difficulty working out the wiring for this.
I plan on using a sensor on the gas strut on the rear windows as the switch to turn the lights on. Right now with a stressed and foggy mind I am thinking a five pin relay for the four circuits (Driver Side, Pass Side, rear, and cargo on) using 87a for all on and 87 for individual lights
