Can you help me locate a thread in which someone installed on the driver's and passenger's feet lights from the MK4?Also,is it possible to make the cabin light turn off slowly (Delay Dimmer) when you close the doors?Cheers!!
As for the delayed dim; you would need something that you could put in between the power source and the light fixture; there's not going to be anything in your mk3 already that gives you this.

There probably is one somewhere. sounds pretty easy. basic wiring.
Find a foot light, mount it. Tap into existing door lights or what ever and done.
As for a dimmer. Its called a capacitor. It stores electricity after the power is shut, and then It'll drain what is "stored" until its powered again.
I MAY be wrong. I'm no electrician, just a self taught nerd.
I found a couple of DIY in the net, http://volkswagenownersclub.com/vw/s...ht-Install-DIY , http://www.vwclub.gr/vwforum/index.php?showtopic=19127 just not for the MK3.These 2 need VAG COM activation though...I'll check with my electrician and get back,cheers!
I added rear passat dome lights to my car so this might be some help: http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...reading-lights
4-wire mk3 dome light wiring harness:
1 - (black/white) don't know
2 - (orange/white) door trigger
3 - (red) power
4 - (orange) ground
If the cabin floor lights are simple 2-wire lights (positive and negative), the orange going to the dome light is the ground, and I'm assuming the orange/white wire will supply the power. I'm guessing you meant Mk5 floor lights but really any lights will do. It doesn't have to be from a Volkswagen.
it's not orange/white, it's brown/white.
If you want the light for that footwell to only come on when that side door is open, tap into the wire that goes into the door connector that feeds the puddle light. That will make it only come on with the door.
Your 3.5 should already do a slow dim. mine does. If you want the footwell lights to dim with them, they have to be hooked up to the main brown/white as mentioned (and 12v, which you can get from the L connector going to the dome light so they're fused with it too).
I used old trunk lights when i did this in my Mk2. Really anything that holds a bulb would work, you don't "have" to purchase anything in particular. It's not brain surgery.
Or swap back to a regular bulb....
