Rear light fader
For those who may be interested, this is the schematic of the additional circuit I added to each of the interior lights in the C-pillars of the 300TE wagon. The wagon has a light in each C-pillar and a light in each D-pillar (either side of the tailgate). All four operate from the dash mounted switch and from either rear door or the tailgate opening. This circuit, when added to each C-pillar light (one circuit is required for each light) will allow those lights to fade to off after the doors are closed. The lights in the D-pillars will switch on and off without the fade. The circuit is sleeved in heatshrink tubing and wired in series between the light and the wire coming from the switch wiring. The circuits are located within the C-pillars at each light.
