Can anyone recommend a small switch that could be used for turning on a door courtesy light when the door opens, completing the circuit?
Something small that could easily be mounted (I can make a small aluminum bracket to mount it). I was thinking it would be a pin/plunger type, that could be mounted so that it is activated directly by the door hinge.
Any suggestions or examples would be greatly appreciated.
Looking for ideas.

Go on ebay motors and search " door pin switch" There are many to choose from. I used the adjustable alarm pins. Worked great. Any auto alarm shop will have them. Most auto supply stores also have them for older classic cars.
It's easier to wire the courtesy lamps to the headlight switch and just as functional. If you're parked somewhere really dark just reach in and give the knob a twist. I think I've used mine twice in nine years. Just saying.
