I prefer where I installed, but... the new mustangs have one that shows a pony from the side view mirrors. If you had a low profile newer style one it might fit behind our mirrors. May be difficult getting glass out. Or from cupholder up on to cieling, Just my 2 cents. Good luck!

I'm digging the cupholder idea...but then you'll have that bright light shooting up through the middle of the car

Are we able to choose color? If so, how? All the ones I see are the plain bowtie with the "Chevrolet" under it with the ring around it?

Cup holder would require the newer short models, but could work. Or underhood near latch, but have to drill out the black rad piece. Ofer, or gen5diy.com sells some great ones without the circle and other colors.

Whenever you open the door, they come on and stay on as long the door is open.
Has anyone else done it this way and confirm they go on and off with opening the door and not when you unlock the door?

Just got mine last night but unsure what to wire to in the door. I've got a 2011 convertible. It doesn't have a door drl as far as I can tell. I haven't pulled my panel off yet. Any suggestions?

Pull the panel off. Yellow wire going to the window switch.

Thank you Stig'er

Even non ABL car's should have wiring to tap into if you want to go that route. Be careful never cutting any body wiring, BCM doesn't like that

Why would you cut it? Just splice into the existing wiring.

I take it this yellow wire is in the plug that connects to the window switch? Is it yellow on both doors, and what do we use for the ground? I received my lights yesterday and already installed them, now I just need to wire them.

OK....just came back from outside from trying this out. I hooked up the red light wire to the yellow wire on the pass side window switch and black wire to black wire and.......Nada!! No power to the light. So what's my next move??

Yeah, I didn't have the same colored wires posted above so rather than guess I'm taking it to my local Oracle to be installed.

Guys, I am the originator of this thread. I never approved of or agreed with using the power window wires. I was skeptical of this from the get go. Some complained that the lights aren't always on with the ABL, well mine are. All cars should come equipped with wiring for ABL even if not there. Red is 12V positive and blk is ground. Just tap into, don't cut and you should not have any issues.

Good luck and enjoy! 1 year and mine r still great!!! :

WTF is an ABL? Common sense says hook em up to the little light button that turns the interior light on when you open the door. Right?
