[QUOTE=Rudel;1323411]Tools you will need:

Begin by using the 1/4 wratchet with the extention and T-20 torx bit and unscrew the bolt that is holding the door handle, lock, and switches.

Once that is done, pull on the face plate until it comes off. It may take some M.A.N.

Now take about 4 peices of wire, 8in each, and strip the ends about 1/4" inch, and start to twist the threaded end.

Now tin the ends of them so they will not bird-cage on you when they are pushed into the socket terminals.

For the following instructions there is no need to do any more soldering, all you have to do us snug the wire into the back of the sockets with the other wire(s). After that zip tie them so they are not all dangling around.......

On the back of the socket for the window switch do the following:

Put the ground (blue) wire into socket 1, with the Black Wire
NOTE: Passenger side is socket 4, with the Black Wire

Put the Hot (red) wire into socket 10, with the Blue/Green Wire
NOTE: Passenger side is socket 2, with the White/Green Wire

On the back of the socket for the lock switches do the following:
Put the ground (blue) wire into socket 4, which is the LED Ground.
Put the Hot (red) wire into socket 5, which is the LED 12V Supply.

And the outcome!

Here is a diagram incase you need more reference:

[QUOTE=unfknrl;1438027]Awesome write-up. I own a 2004 4dr so the wiring harness was a bit different. Here's for those who have 4 dr SVT's

Props to Rudel & unfknrl!!!!!!!! Just finished this mod, don't know if it worked yet cause it's still daylight so will have to wait until night time, if it needs more work well then thank god for drop lights! And just for the record, everything dashlight wise is green so for now it will stay that way.
