Hi Indy - Tech,


It,s for the mk 2 Santa Fe 2006 new shape, aftermarket running boards, they have 2 lights on each board front and rear with 12 volt 3 watt bulb, 2 wires from each bulb holder live and negative.

Hi John .

You can wire these up to your door light switch so the light comes on and off when you open and close the door .
Or you can have them come on when you turn the side lights on .

Which way would you like to go .
