Sure, here you go:Can someone post pics of the mounting areas for under the steering wheel and glove box? having an issue finding a good spot to mount this too.
THANK YOU SO MUCHSure, here you go:
On the driver side, the control box is mounted via ziptie below the fuse box, but up on a bit of a "rise" in the floorboard. The LED strip is mounted via ziptie above and behind the pedals. Cables are also routed behind all of the peddles and ziptied to prevent them from slipping.
The power source (that red wire on the far left) is the fuse tap going up to and plugged into the ACC fuse in the fusebox. The ground wire runs from the control box up and to the right in the picture. See the leftmost of those two nuts with blue paint spots? That's where the ground wire is fastened.
On the passenger side, the LED strip is mounted via ziptie to the two flattened-U-shaped brackets near the bottom-back of the glove compartment. Easily the easiest of the four seat areas to do. The power cable runs back under/behind the center console.
Where did you get that phone holder at?I tackled the beginning of this project today. Got as far as installing LED strip lighting in the driver footwell before it got too dark out. I used the ground bolt above and to the side of the fuse box, on the outer side of the car. I had to twist my left arm around some things to get it on and off, felt like I was crawling up under the dash too, but I used a tiny 10mm wrench- the p-shaped 3" kind that comes with power equipment or a bicycle. I think I temporarily lost it under the floor mat or seat, but I don't require its use further for this project. I used a waterproof black LED strip, and a RF remote. The car intelligently powers up peripheral circuits when starting the engine, so the electrical isn't going to be taxed on cold mornings or nights. Not that it would anyway: The LED strip only used about 12 or so Watts for the full 16.4ft when I tested it on a wall outlet meter. I put it on a 7.5A fuse, but I think a 5A fuse would be sufficient.
The adhesive on the LED strip was either a knock-off 3M variety, or had aged/been through some temperature cycles. No way it was sticking to the plastic, and seeing how poorly the iffy adhesive stuck made me realize what other have said; given time and temperature swings, even high quality 3M adhesive won't stay put. I drilled some 5/32" holes in the flat lip of the plastic, and used zipties to secure the LED strip. I can dim the light, turn it off, and change colors with the remote and without concern about where I point it. I'm going to work on the passenger side as early as tomorrow, and am thinking about doing under the seats to light the rear cabin floor. All in all, I spent under $50 on the parts, and am very pleased about having more flexible lighting than the factory kit (which most dealerships quoted me between $800 - $1000 for).
It's an older, basic, Qi charger with a ball-socket connection to a base with one of those standard suction mounts seen with GPS and other units. I didn't get it on Amazon, so I am not sure where it was purchased. I think it was a Samsung wireless charger for the GS6/GS7. I have a GS9+, and it fits well. It has a crummy charging rate, so for long drives or when starting with low battery I unplug the USB supply wire from the charger and use an adapter to plug in the phone and max out what the wire and my 12V splitter can provide.Where did you get that phone holder at?
There's another thread that I believe I started (or at least posted in) that shows you which wires to tap into to get the lights to turn on and off (including dimming)Has anyone wired their setup to the interior lights fuse (21) in the engine bay?
Managed to put these into my car today using the info in this thread so I'd like to say thank you to everyone, the only gripe for me is that they don't light up on entry like the interior lights.
quick picture of the driver side at night
Ah fudge. I thought I posted a picture sonewherethanks, I think I found the thread and linked for anyone looking.
But from what I'm reading you didn't manage to get the LEDs connected to the interior lights so they turn on when you enter or dim by twisting the stick on the dash.
Edit: first time using a forum, not sure how to include your reply in my post.
The six pin harness under the dash as shown in this post.Where in the harness would you tap into?
