    Default Dome light wiring

    Anyone know where the dome light wiring runs on a non-sunroof'd ZX2? Like, which pillar, and what color wires do what? Thanks.

    There's the wiring diagram for it. Based on the diagram I was looking at on locations, I think the wiring goes down the driver's side A-pillar.

    that's correct. I took my a-pillar off and tapped into my dome light for LEDs years ago...

    Oh, cool. I'm swapping out my A-Pillar soon anyway, so this works out. Thanks!

    Hm... Well, I guess making a "all over lights" thing for when I flip it to "On" isn't going to work. No matter, really, so I just tap into the Red/White wire for a hot-lead whenever a door is open?

    I'd like to place small LED bars under the dash foot wells, under the front seats, and some small red LED bars on the edges of the doors (so no passing cars nail 'em).

    That's one way of doing it. The old school way of doing it would be to wire something up and run it to the actual light. Use your positive wire to connect to the light and when the light gets power, so will your LEDs. I've never used this option, but I don't see why it wouldn't work...

    The weird thing, at least in mine, is that I plugged my light in and it only worked in the door position. The little small flip lights didn't work. UNTIL I put the screw back in that held it up. That completed a ground I guess.

    seriously thank you so much for that wiring diagram, I was trying to figure out wiring with my fluke DMM for about an hour or so until I gave up and decided to check it out on here....

    Old post I know... but it was incorrect for me. At least the conversations seemed incorrect. The schematic seemed correct.

    I don't know if an early 99 is different but I had to tap into the Blue/red for + and red/white (it looked more yellow than white to me) for - to make my light work with the door switch. I received a constant hot from both blue/red and red/white when body grounding my add-on light. Neither would shut off when the door closed.
    The dome light wires plug into the upper face of the fuse box under the dash which made it easier than pulling off the A pillar trim. the light I added was a 3mm white led pointed at the key/ignition switch. Now I don't have to fumble around to get my key into the ignition. Foot-well light bars will be next.
