Yes, they come on with the regular interior lights. The lights under the dash/footwell are part of the "ambient lighting" which was included in the premium package. That's how they are supposed to operate.

If you're trying to install the lights on the door handles, that's a little more involved.

If you want the lights to come on when you open the door, you would need to splice into the cabin lights.

I'm looking for something that will come on whenever I open the door...
