Alright well I quickly realized when I went out and looked at my key ring in the car that I wired this one backwards. I forgot that because I installed it aftermarket as a red LED ring initially the factory plug was tapped into the overhead lights that are red. No problem, a quick little switch and I'm good to go.
I then went out and installed the key ring in the car and fished my extra wire for the aqua LEDs over to the junction box. I only need one wire because I just shared the ground connection on the key ring for the red.
I'm going to go see how far I can get tonight, but I don't expect to wrap it all the way up. I have a few steps.
1. Solder a "trigger" lead off the connection to the red LED power wire that will go to the trigger on the relay.
2. Crimp female connector onto aqua LED power wire.
3. Splice into power and ground for dimmable cabin lighting.
4. Hook up and secure relay.
That should be it, but I do work early tomorrow.
As it stands now it's back to functioning as the red LED key ring (much better than bland stock), just waiting for the other part to be installed to make it fully operational.
My car won't ever be done because I'm insane. That is all.
