Thats exactly what I was meaning. Those bulbs can get hot which is why I suggested pulling the whole dome light housing so you have something to hold on to.

If you want to get fancy the GM/Chevy trucks from 88-98 had a roll up light under the hood, you open the hood and pull it out and it sticks on the fender via magnet. Then when your done changing your tire you turn a little crank to wind it back up. Its a popular part that a lot of people buy and hook up in newer years and other vehicles.

Exactly. If I'm in a car with a functional battery, a mess of wire and a slew of light bulbs...why am I looking for a pencil?

And not be be completely dense but...assuming the battery works but none of the interior/exterior lights do, how the heck am I gonna see well enought to split my pencil, strip my stereo wire, and hook up my little gizmo?

Guess I'd better take a flashlight. wink

All we can do is all we can do.

Thanks for the post Frostbite. Interesting tidbit. Kind of thing that would really impress some younger kids. I will file it away in my..hope I never need this file.

I found only one problem with the video...what self-respecting person doesn't have a length of wire just laying around in the car? grin
