Ambient Lighting Kit

Has anyone installed the ambient lighting package in the cupholder? I was wondering how that is done. Does the whole console have to come out? Do you have the instructions?

Pretty much. You need to drill holes to mount the LEDs. We have a less invasive version.

If you want that look you will have to drill holes to mount the LED.

Are you guys sure? I just did some digging and found this thread that shows how to remove the console lid. It looks like the sides of the console just pop off. Maybe the ambient lighting can be installed that way...?

I have this kit. The dealer installed it. It gives the choice or 2 levels of red or blue.

The factory kit comes with instructions and drilling templates for precise location of the LEDs and recommended location of the switch.

In order to put the LED's in the sides of the cup holders near the bottom, (factory recommended location) the console does need to be removed. The underside of the console is in two sections with retainers and panel that encase the cup holders - sections need to be separated.

I've installed the cup holder LEDs, the footwell LEDs, color selection/on-off switch and control unit that comes in the kit from Chevy -- those parts or wires all go inside the console.

Sometimes the kit is up for sale on ebay for 1/2 to 1/3 what the dealer charges. Got my kit brand new from a wrecking yard, it was still in the trunk of the Camaro and unopened.

The wiring for the factory kit is run between the two underside sections of the console (after removing the console it is flipped over and the two sections are separated by removing screws).

It is not difficult to do the install but really should have the detailed instructions that show every fastener and sequence to remove the console and disassemble - to avoid frustration or breaking something. Saw the instructions online at one point when I was researching this - someone had scanned them in and made a PDF file.

Settings: Low and High Blue, Low and High Red ... hold button for 10 seconds and does continuous cycle of each. It remembers the last setting you used next time the car is started.

** Warning ** - The footwell lighting is very dim even on the switch bright setting.
It is not noticeable hardly at all in daytime. The cup holders LEDs do show up better.
