It is independent. It comes on only when the door or trunk is open and the engine is OFF. It is connected to CAN system.I'm interested in the illuminated star. Does anyone know if it comes on with the lights automatically or does it have its own independent off and on switch?
Sure…in that case just install a separate switch (could place in the under part of the dash in easy reach and not seen) for the illuminated star. You can tap into the running lights so when they are on you can switch the star on (or off)
