Mine come on with side lights, they are low power LEDs. If you do want them to come on with engine wire them into the fridge or charging circuits using an in line fuse.

I assume your 2011 Amara will already have marker lights fitted, so the wiring to them would have to be isolated from side & tail lights. Then you have the problem of having them on only when the engine is running, perhaps coupling them onto the fridge circuit.

 

But is it all worth it, why not just switch on side & tail as I do when driving under any poor light conditions.

I have marker lights on my "to do list" as it's best to be seen at all times the way some drivers are on the roads these days.

Are you referring to the same model?

 

Whether side marker lights OR reflectors are required depends on body length although lights can be an option where just reflectors are needed.

 

Intrigued as to why you would require only them to come on with ignition as it would not comply with lighting requirements. ?

Mine are wired to the charging circuit and only come on when the engine is running. Marker lights are only required on vehicles and trailers over 6m body length after 2012.
