it is SO dumb, but so true...
i am thinking about wiring it to a switch in the engine compartment, and possibly mounting another light on the other side, but away from the belts, from another bonne. I mean i understand why they did it that way sort of, so it wouldnt run down the battery...but the only reason they would so that is because they think the hood would be up for a while because they KNOW the car would break down...lol.[/quote]
or...just give the light 12v constant, and then when the hood opens it will turn on just like if the lights were on
