I couldn't find the connector on the passenger side either, even after removing the glove box.
Spent ages looking with good light, I'm sure if it was there I would have found it, didn't bother looking on the drivers side as I thought that I would look for the easier to find one first - or so I thought !
2001 CF3 Spider.
I spliced into the loom just before it goes through to the door.
Thanks for that, Mike. I just wanted to check that someone else had reached the same conclusion (it's damn uncomfortable in that tiny footwell especially when the bulky door can't open very far in the garage...
) I even took out the blue box (two bolts) to check the plug on top. Catching my head on a self-tapping screw just under the airbag was the final straw.
My theory is that since our PH2 cars have a different (cheaper) style of under-door light, i.e. a FIAT one rather than Maserati) then the wiring loom had to be revised (new connectors), the lighting control unit was revised too, and someone did away with the footwell light wires/plugs (the plastic mouldings with holes remain, though).
Tomorrow I'm going to take some sidecutters back out to the wreckers and find some of those two-pin plugs on wires to suit the later type of light unit, which fits the holes perfectly. Also I will wire an LED to the driver's side light and hopefully arrange it to shine on the ignition lock.
Other lighting projects - light in the compartment behind the handbrake (just a white LED in the side will do) and a boot light in the compartment behind the seats with a switch on the hinge. Fluorescent or LED strip light would be practical but I don't want it to look non-original so it will probably be another of those under-door lights, anything will be better than nothing. If you've tried looking for a hotel room key card in there without a torch in an unlit carpark, you'll know why I think there should be a light in there
