Door Handle LED DIY with pics

Finally I have time to take some pics of the DIY. Since my english is very poor, I will use pics instead of speaking. Hope this will help and feel free to ask questions and add comments.

I am having a 5 Dr yaris, so I will start with the front door and you can get the LEDs from Walmart for $10 (4 of them)

1. open the front door and locate the black stuff which cover the screw and remove it



2. unscrew the screw (the screw has something to hold on to it, so no worry it will fall into the door)



3. after you unscrew it, remove the lock and the handle



slide the handle toward the back of the car and remove it



4. drill a hole in the handle and put your LED in it (I used hot glue to keep the LED in place)



5. run the wire in the door and through the wire tube into the car



Now come to the rear door

6. For the rear door, we have to remove the lock in order to get to the screw, so we have to remove the door panel and there are only two screw for the door panel.





7. remove the cable for the lock and unplug any wire for the power window or whatever u have.







8. after remove the door panel, u can unplug the wire and remove the lock





9. u will be able to see the screw after u remove the lock



10. remove the door handle the same way u do for the front door





again run the LED wire through the wire tube into the car



Now u can connect your LED wherever u want. I run the wire to the keyless dome light circuit, so when i open the door, this will come on


Hope u guys like it

Where was the keyless dome light circuit in your car? What I mean is, how far did you have to thread the LED wire into the car?

It looks awesome, by the way.

where I connect my LEDs is very close to the dome light, so the LED wire is long

^ this idea was also in the Vitz Hyper Rev. There's a lot of things you can do with LEDs, as y'all can see with the pictures.
