@BSD - In simple terms, you can take a parallel connection from the front lights. However, you may want to reconsider doing this as a DIY. But if you want to, the best place to start will be is from WagonR VXi's wiring diagram.

PS - Never knew you'd a WagonR; welcome to the club

aargee, do you have the wiring diagram?

The still older model (with number plates on rear bumper) had lights on the hatch door. Mine has some plastics in that area (just inside the rear brake lights - the one at top of the hatch door). Was wondering if some provision may exist here.

No intention of DIY on this. Just that I want some info before approaching the accessory guys.

@BSD - Give a consideration to Swift's front lamp for your rear lamps. I'm going through the owner's manual & it doesn't have wiring diagram.

May be I need to search something for you on internet. Alternatively, you might want to search for workshop manual.

Sorry to post a late reply as I was searching for one in TBhp & couldn't find one.

Default solution for swift, might work for wagon-r

I got a 3-lcd light (osram). It's a circular plastic thing. Cost me about 250. This can be stuck to any part of the car. It's also got press activation, so you can press it for putting on/off. It has enough light to illuminate the boot. It takes 3 AAA batteries which don't need to be replaced too often since I use it very rarely. I like the fact that it avoided any wiring and also that the control for putting on/off was on it Will post a pic if you are interested. For the rear lights, I got a chinese made 5-lcd piece and got it connected to the door just like in the front since I wanted something like the front reading lamp at the rear. So the setup for the front light works for both lights. It cost me 100 to get it done. Hope it helps!

aargee, is a spare wiring available anywhere to which the light can be connected? (Like the wires in place for speakers in some cars?

And jayteegee - thanks for the info. That stick on type of light does look appropriate.

Hey Mate,

Thanks for this piece of info. I too was pondering over getting a boot lamp fixed for my Swift Vdi. Didn't want to fiddle around with the wiring and wasn't too sure how I could get the boot lamp fixed. Now that you have guided us to this easy install, makes life so much simpler.

Thanks again.

Cheers!

You guys could install an aftermarket flexible reading light. It can also light up the boot. Simple, but effective. Will cost about 1k, not sure.

I have installed a neon tube in my i20, but that has a connection from the boot light itself. Wait till post the pics. It lights the boot enough.
