Just noticed Friday that my lights seem to still be on when the door is closed . I was in the garage when I got in the car and noticed that after starting the car and the foot well lights fading out that you can see a small illumination on the stainless door sill plates. I'm not sure if this is happening because I'm not getting both power and ground from the same source as I grounded to the metal on the door and not the foot well lights...

The problem is with the ground wire. It has to be ground to the same circuit. This problem is all over other boards. What people are doing is using the dome pos and neg. Try this with the foot wells. I was gonna ask you just the other day if using the ground were you had it was working.

Preciate the response chXFS! I'll reground them to the foot wells this wknd while I'm helping my buddy install some on his Mercedes, which has a light in the door so his install should be quick and easy.

So I already have the logo with the circle around it. I found a company that will custom make the ghost light with just the logo and no ring around it. The price is $69. I'd like to see what other peoples opinions are with or without the circle.

I prefer the ring but I guess that opinion is one-sided since I haven't seen it without the ring. I saw somewhere that a guy had them on his Range Rover (I think it was) and it projected the image of the vehicle with no circle and I didn't really care for it. I guess to give a fair assessment I'd have to see the Jag ones without the ring.

You were absolutely correct. I finally got around to messing with theses things today and grounded them to the footwell lights, where I'm getting the power from and they work as intended. I think I'm going to have to order another set however because the constant burning has made them wash out some. They're no longer as bright I don't think and the red lettering now just looks white.

Default LED Ghost lights

The installation of these lights on an XK8 was simple as the car is already equipped with lights in the door. But, the results speak for themselves.

It's a t10 194 the same as you would use in the interior.
