Footwell lights

#2
Has anyone installed a footwell led lights on the new corolla 2019?
care to share any instructions on how to do it?

thanks
I have some lights on order now, and they should be here this weekend. I will post up when I get everything completed.

Essentially what I will be doing is installed a pair of 6mm blue "bolt style" LEDs (one on each side) under the dash. I will tie into the illumination portion of the heated seat switch. I will update when I actually get down and dirty

Will that work like the dome light. Its when you open the door / unlock the car the footwell light light up and switch off when door locks and engine switch on.

It can be set up that way, but I plan on tying into the dash illumination circuit.

What I'm planning on doing is have a slight "glow" shining on the floors when the headlights are on.

In order to work with the opening of the doors, etc. You would need to tie into the dome light circuit. I haven't investigated this, but it shouldn't be too difficult if you're able to find the proper source.

Thats the one I cant figure out. Was hoping someone has done it and point the right wire to tap.

It wasn't too difficult. Find a place to mount the lights, and run your wires.
I chose to ground each at the metal portion of the dash on either side (behind the removable panel on each side).

I tied in the hot wires together, I then tied into the power side of the dimmer switch. By soldering the end portion of a piece of 16 gauge wire, I was able to create a bit of a connector pin. I was able to insert this into the pin slot for the green wire on the dimmer switch. I had to pull it out a few time to get the length right so that it wasn't sticking out past the connector.

Secure with zip ties to keep everything neat and tidy.
