Step #4 – Reinstalling the light

  • Run wire through the grommet for the trunk lid
  • Wiring diagram has been included below

Ok the rest of this is just reversing everything you did with the exception of wiring up the lights. I would assume if you decided to do this install yourself you are comfortable with wiring and can hook up the lights as needed by viewing my wiring diagram. I only wired in the power wire due to the lights on the trunk lid do not have any functions besides just being lit up. So I thought it look out of place to use the center light functions.
