As per title, I've heard that some cars had an illuminated ignition ring. Is this a myth?

If you can't find one use the item from a Nissan Maxima (J30 or A32 - I think these are the right model numbers).

There is a bit of wiring harness at the fuse block that also needs to be got.

Isn't the primera and skyline one the same. Think the 300zx had them too?

I got one! Now just trying to think how the hell I am going to wire it up

How many wires is it? When does it light up? When you turn on the ignition or beforehand? If it lights up when you turn on the ignition just put the positive to a remote turn on such as the cig lighter or the remote turn on wire for the stereo.

I have never turned my car on since i bought it so don't know when it lights up

If it lights when you enter the car you can wire it to the dome light or direct to the trigger on the door so when you open the door the switch turns it on.

The one that was in my old R was connected to the interior light circuit. Only reason I know this is that the switch on the door wasn't switching off the circuit properly and the illuminated ring was draining the battery slightly overnight. There might be a spare plug for it under the steering column shrouds if you're lucky. Failing that you'll have to trace the wiring for the door open/interior light circuit somewhere and tee into it

I need to get a replacement bulb and a connector for that replacement. I have found one but don't have a connector for it, so will need to get a bulb and connector but it needs to be the right fitting to lock into the illuminated ignition ring. Anyone know what bulb this is and what connector I need for it? Or a suitable replacement bulb and connector?
This is the one I have which fits the ring...

does the blue bulb not pull out the holder and it like a mini capless bulb .
I normally pull the jap speciality bulbs/holders/harness parts from spare dash and switch assemblies .

I've tried pulling off / out the bulb but it feels like I'm going to pull off the blue dome.it almost seems like it's a sealed unit and it would be replaced as a single item. I've looked at most of the dash light fittings and they are different

LOL, I don't even have the plastic trim piece that goes around the ignition. I need to step it up

Only one I can recall is on a skyline and pretty much same/identical bulb latching hole as on your light ring.
Bulb assembly on those compact at bulb and has a small harness tail with plug connector, whether bulb pulled out or not from plastic body I don't know for sure but most but not all dash ones of similar design I encounter did .
I would be heading to local pull-a-parts and investigating all nissans or jap cars for the bulb assembly and part of harness with plug if required for your grafting needs .
would be easy enough buy a plug and make up tail to suit though .
Other option is look on ebay and similar for the nissan ignition barrel light rings and you likely see the bulb part and get some judgement on standard part sharing and fitting chances .

I'll have a dig around, it's certainly not a bulb I have come across before. The only reason I have the blue one is that in my quest to obtain a pulsar one, I bought a ring from a different car and it already had the bulb with it.
