Did you see the bulb? Is it the same size as the ones for your license plate or your HVAC?

Unfortunately doing the leds in cluster creates very uneven lighting.

The wire is behind the pillar. Between the windshield and door window. Pull pillar and test light the wire. Cut and run directly to a toggle switch.

Never used a test light before. I broke my pillar off before so it's just lose now, no problem there. So once I find the wire I just cut it and run my toggle switch through it? But my lights have two switches on my headliner would those be affected? Or will It be like have g two different switches?

You're also gonna have to leave those light switches in the on position when setup the switch because other wise you'll have to turn it on both places. Also don't cut the wire. Strip them. And make sure the door is closed and lights are off so you don't blow a fuse.

Okay good to know. So I took off my dome lights and bulb are okay. Checked the fuse which is #7 an it was blown.. Figures. They don't happen to sell LED's at autozone so they? And I think I'm missing a light? I have two bulbs and it looks like I'm missing one in the middle. I'm confused. And I also took off the drivers side pillar, but no wire. I took off the lights and the wires do look like their going to the drivers side. There is three black which I assume is ground and a black and white and a brownish one. Which one would be the constant power?

the spot you think you're missing one, you are, should be a light there that comes on when you open your door or turn your headlight knob all the way to the left.

Not sure on the wires

Front lights

Bottom rear

Top rear

Dome

And then "fogs" lol
What type of LED's did you use for the fog lights, and where did you mount them?

Okay so I'm giving up the idea for a toggle switch for my dome lights, but I did manage to fix my fuse. I bought a set of lights from autozone since my middle light is missing now I have to get used to my light turning on every time I open my door lol I never had that before. I will be ordering LED's though, to replace the dome lights and also some interior lights as well

Just used a red small strip from autozone for the LED's it comes in a pack with two and I just used some super glue and mounted them on the roof of where the real fogs should be. (Which I will be installing real fogs sooner or later(red ones)) lol and just stripped the brown wire from the parking lights and wrapped it around and used some electrical tape. Then grounded it.
