As long as you hook it up correctly to the switch that will technically work although backwards to how most people use a switch

Is there a different was you would suggest doing it? Want to do it right the first time. Thanks.

Went ahead and did it. Did it through add a circuit from the fuse box. Works!

I did mine today, they work just how I wanted. I put white ones under my dash, and when you open the door, or when the dome light is turned on, they also turn on.
You said you did add a circuit,
So do you have switch to turn the lights off?

So are there separate wires by the dome switch for the 'click up' option Vs on door activation?
