Do you think it's possible to get power for dash cam from the same spot under the overhead console?
Yes - there is power there that feeds the map lights.

Re: Illuminated Door Sills

Great write up. Thank you so much. Kind of glad you did this now and not six months ago. When we bought the most recent FFE, I looked long and hard at the illuminated door sills. There was one that said Electric. I couldn't find anybody that did the work, so it was a bit of an unknown trying to fin...

Re: Illuminated Door Sills

Here's the three colors that are available. You can find a YouTube of these in action - the light moves back and forth. My first time with this product so we'll see how they last.

Re: Illuminated Door Sills

Both sides all done and the connections at the overhead console completed and panel put back into place. Don't forget to reconnect the connector after tapping the violet-gray wire. Here it is - both sides look the same. I like it! https://s20.postimg.org/iw9vq6ws9/PA032220.jpg https://s20.postimg.or...

Re: Illuminated Door Sills

The passenger side all completed - the protecting plastic removed from the door sill as well:

I hooked up power and ran the wires over the sill lip after putting some tape down to protect the wire from the metal:

Re: Illuminated Door Sills

I ran wires from the overhead console to each door between the roof and inside headliner. Fish a wire under the curtain airbag from the door - you'll see the best spot by looking for the lower area in the roof liner. The fishing wire will be tight at first and then slide easily to the over to the co...

Here it is out: https://s20.postimg.org/79kpry35l/PA032204.jpg Now you only need to tie into one wire for the power to the illuminated ...
