That is because you are tapping into the traction control light. Or the gauge light. Regardless, those two lights will dim but not turn off.

If you want to tap into the abl light so that it can turn off there is a purple wire underneath the steering wheel area.

That will be a lot of work and a very long wire.

i found this is a good location at the traction control, when i open my door, the led comes on in cup holder, if its light outside, it goes out, if dark stays on, and i can dim it also if i think the interior is to bright, when i shut off car, after a couple seconds light goes out with all interior lights.
good for my purposes..but i see what you want to do, that is fine also, just not able to use dimmer i think with that set up..later ryd,,

That sounds good.
Did you have to pull the shifter plate and all or can you get to it from the side? And what wires did you jump into?
I have a 1SS and non ABL if that makes any difference.

Steel take a look at the first couple of posts. it should be good for your 1ss but i am not sure about the ABl ?? you dont have to pull the shifter plate, the traction control pops up and then from there you take the clip that controls traction control and un-clip it,..(easy) and splice into the yellow and black wires..with the new red and black led wires...super easy process..if you follow directions in this thread..let us know how you do...maybe a pict of two..later ryd,.

I love this mod. So the plate covers the led and lets the light reflect under it so it looks like it glows. Has anyone tried adding it to the cup holder where you sit your drink, but flush mount it so they point at each other, or would this be too bright?

Awesome job guys.

I had thought about it since the LED comes with 3M tape on the back. But decided against it for three reasons.
1. The led puts off alot of light (see my picture below) Thats just one. Two would be really bright. lol
2. The led wires would be partly exposed. Unless you find away to cut inside the holder.
3. Cups going in and out would be likely to knock the LED off.

Just my 2cents
