First off just wanted to say that this MOD was originally done by BERTO1230781 I’m just making this DIY for easier for others to be able to do this mod as well
Need to buy 12v LED lights that I found off ebay here
10 PCS LED - 5mm PRE WIRED 12 VOLT ~ WIDE VIEW ANGLE WHITE ~ LEDS 12V PREWIRED | eBay
NOTE: BUY THE RETAINERS TOO, TRUST ME YOU WILL THANK ME LATER
10 LED HOLDER / RETAINERS - PANEL MOUNTING 5mm LOCKS USA | eBay
You can use any wire you want, I just used speaker wire I had laying around
DISCONNECT YOUR POSITIVE POWER FROM YOUR BATT OR YOU WILL BLOW A FUSE LIKE I DID
First thing first is we need to tap into the power to give the LED power to turn on and off when the Dome lights do
Remove the 2 screws as shown in the picture
Now just pull towards you and down to take the dome off. CAUTION: don’t pull the dome too far we have connectors still attached
There are 2 spots you need to tap into Left side is POS and right side is NEG of the picture shown below. I don’t have a soldering iron yet, and recommend you going that course for best results but can you electrical tap like I did
Now that you have your power tapped start running your power lines. You only need to tap the power one time, just tap into that wire for the left side giving both sides of your car power. For the back door tap into the power line you ran for your front doors.
I ran my line right between the roof and liner all the way down to the door
You have 2 options for running the power to the door
1 option is faster but ugly
2 option will take longer but a cleaner install
Now that we have our lines ran the door lets get our door handles off..OH YA!!
There is a bolt that has to be loosen NOTE: bolt will not come all the way out
Remove the plastic cover to gain access to the bolt
Front Door Back Door
This is the bolt
Front Door Back Door
Now that the bolt is loose gently pretend to open the door and remove the small end of the door handle
Now that the small piece is off you can now slide the actual handle off but can totally remove yet cause its still plugged in.
Remove the 2 screws located where open door latch and close handle and remove the door cover. One good pull and it will come off. Now simply get a long flathead screwdriver and pop the plug off inside the door, ( Only needed to be done for the front door handles ONLY) and now you can finally get the door handle off.
ONE IMPORTANT NOTE, MAKE SURE TO ADD ENOUGH WIRE IN THE DOOR FOR THE WINDOW TO COME DOWN. DO A FEW DRY RUNS TO ENSURE YOU HAVE ENOUGH WIRE IN THE DOOR.
