Anyone who has the OEM illuminated sills: when do they turn off? I had them installed and I can see them lighting up even with the door shut and car off. Did the dealer F up the install?

Yeah..I think a call to the dealer is in order. Ours shutoff as soon as the door shuts. They might have tapped into the wrong wire maybe? :confused:

Hi all, just joined up to ask which wire did you tap into to get the LED Scuff plates to work? I've read you need to use the dome light but where does the wire that leads to that run from? Isn't there something under the dash that i can tap into?

There for a friends Holden Cruze... Also noticed that the trigger for the door lights is hidden somewhere as well lol.

I'm bringing this Thread back alive. The dealer had to originally order the door sills for me. Told me i would have to Pay labor, but there telling me that its gunna take pretty much all day to install them.But if its at most an hour install My car should be done at the moment. But i dont have the money to pay for labor if its gunna take all day, I need my car now. Got stuff to do has anyone got instructions yet for the DIY install??? What wires to splice into, ETC. Cause im gunna tell them to screw it ill do it myself. Hopefully someone can help me.

So I went to the dealer and picked my car back up i'm just going to do the install my self. they gave me the instructions that came with the Door sills. I did look in the box and the door sills look PnP. the only issue would be routing the wires and lining up the sill. When I do get around to it I will post a how to if not already done and converting the instructions into a .pdf file and see about getting that uploaded.

Illuminated Cupholders/Under Dash Lighting with 7 Colors to choose from. It cost almost $1,000 Total for Sill Plates and Cupholder?Under Dash Lighting and labor for them to install. My Strong Opinion is DON'T GET THESE 2 ITEMS. POSITIVES :It looks Completely Professional as if these items came with the car stock. No wires showing AT ALL even if you try to find wires its impossible to see so thumbs up for dealer install aftermarket items. When the doors open the Sill Plates are Auto Illuminated. Under Dash/Cupholder Lights can be left in the OFF Mode or you can Leave it in whichever color Mode you want and everytime the car starts they turn on in the color you leave it in, when you turn the car off it auto turns off. It also has a mode where every 5 seconds it changes through each 7 colors. The Black Button that controls the Lights is in the Arm Rest and its black to match the arm rest color perfectly and its also installed as if it came with the car stock, with no wires at all or any flaws Whatso Ever with the install. Also the little bubble Lookin Rubber Lights in the cupholder has no wires and looks Real Clean too. NEGATIVES : If its day time you dont even know that the word "CHEVROLET" is illuminated. If its dusk where the sun is going down or raining out with no sunshine you still cant tell the "CHEVROLET" is illuminated. it has to be night time to see that the sills are lighted, Only the front 2 are illuminated, the rear ones are solid aluminum rectangles. The Actual Reflection of the cupholder Lights are kinda dim, it doesnt really shine and fill the cupholder with light until night time. The Under Dash Lights actually made me angry because that was my main Reason for paying almost $1,000 for these 2 parts. They install a little square rubber piece which is basically 1" in size and same material as the cupholder lights, they are installed on the middle plastic Trim as much forward as possible on Driver and Passenger Side, they are not too Bright so even during the night it doesnt really fill the foot space with Light AND even worse the Driver Light is Behind the gas pedal and your foot will be right there next to the light blocking the shine from comming out and displaying light in the foot space area, I would think they should be placed under the dash like under the steering wheel facing down toward your feet but nope its as far forward as the tip of the plastic trim piece can go. :angry: Since the Sill Plates and Dash/Cupholder Lights are basically not visible unless its nightime i feel like i wasted money. Buy all your lighting and install it all yourself, You have as much time as you need to hide wires, make the install look clean, and to make sure you are happy with placement of your own lights.

I installed the door sill plates myself and even though I can only see them at night they're worth it in my opinion. Of course I paid way less than retail for them. Also, LED strips work better for foot well illumination, only downside though is if you have to take the dash apart it might be difficult to keep them attached. This is why I paid $4 for 4 strips. Cupholder, if you want to do this... DIODE DYNAMICS has a great cupholder kit. They still need to test fit for the cruze but theirs is hidden (meaning you can't see a bulb)

Good input Dolladog, thanks for that. I always wonder why GM prices some of its accessories so high - most people balk at the cost of stuff like this (me included), and therefore don't purchase. I imagine they would sell 10x as many illuminated door sill kits if they were half the price, and they'd still make good mark up at that price.

I made sure to look this morning but with the early morning light (sun over horizon but not above) I could easily see mine just fine. Still wish the rear ones were illuminated for the stricker price of $400.

You're right about sills replacing the current ones. The dealer installed mine. Your sills are nice. Good job. Unfortunately, of course, I do not have the instructions.
How much did u pay to have them installed?
In 2017 for aclamaros I believe they charge $160 for just two on coupe. I believe. And run $231 on website ChevyStore.com or ChevyParts.com
