GreySkorpion On my 04 ZX5, I added a rear dome light by removing the front dome light and finding what colors for the 3 wires there were and tracing them over to the drivers a pillar (had to remove a-pillar trim piece), I then taped into the 3 wires and ran about 3 feet of wire back to the new dome housing. Not sure if that helps, but to find power and ground, a voltmeter will work.

VonKaiser Didn't get around to it this weekend. Had a slight financial crisis. I'll update the thread when I get the headliner off and the LEDs installed.

VonKaiser Hmmm interesting...thanks for the tip! Next weekend I hope to have the time to get that headliner off so I can poke around. :D

norcalfocus01 The wires are glued to the headliner, so if you wanted to get to them better you could just pull the wires and rip them off the top of the headliner. I had to do that when I took my headliner out.

This is some what a bit like I was thinking. Removing some of the rubber wire casing and wrapping the LED wires around it and taping it off with some electrical tape and using a tiny ziptie to keep it tight. I don't have a tester and the wires are so tightly packed under the headliner I don't know what is what--which is why I need to know what wire does what before I start splicing. :D If all else fails I can just literally test each wire until I find out what is what. But generally black is ground so that part is easy to figure out right?

flipwilly2 I put a PT Cruiser (don't you judge me) dome light over the rear seat area in my '08 and wired into the front map lights (the interior is all black and you couldn't see anything back there). I used a straightened out coat hanger to fish the wires from the rear seat to the front lights, found the hot wires for the map lights by poking my test light through the wire's insulation, and when the test light went off when the map lights went off, I knew I had the right wire. I skinned back about 3/4" of the hot and ground wires (didn't cut them) and wrapped the wires from the rear around the skinned places and then taped them. The rear dome light comes on and goes off with the map lights and I've had no problems at all. I wouldn't think your LED's would pull anymore juice than what I did. You could be more professional than me and solder and heat shrink the splices.
