Interior LED light

Would any of you guys know how to pass the firewall and into the battery? And what would you connect the led to? I have a base model v6 2013 and anything would be helpful! Thanks

If you have light strips you can pull power from the fuse block without going thru the firewall, the cigarette lighter and radio always have constant power. There are two ways to do this pull the fuse , stick your wire into the slot, push fuse back in, or autozone sells a fuse with a wire already on it with a butt connector and you can wire it that way, the grounds can be put where it will make good metal to metal contact, wire them to your switch and you should have some nice lighting

I hid my sub and amp wires under all the plastic like panels in my car. Almost everything in the interior that is plastic just snaps in. I would say pull it up put the wires under or in and run it through to where you need to go.

How do you suppose I pull out the center? With the music audio and heat and stuff? I wonder if there was a clip on it on youtube

Post some pics of what you are trying to wire up . The fuse idea will be easy and work good . Just try to. Find one that only has power when the switch is on or you're light may not turn off when the car is off . If I remember rite
