    Your verbal description sounds like A. Don't do that, the light will be on all the time. You want B - no diodes needed, just wire the led lamp element to the dome...

    Probably the switch has three connectors. If it is at all logical the outer two go to the two wires (always on, on when the door is open) and the center one goes to the light. The other side of...

    Is there a dynamometer shop near you? Perhaps if you can run the car on that and the shaking occurs something will be visible? If the shaking does not occur that would be informative too, it would...
