  • power in doors?

    I've got a 94 sl1 without power windows. i'mw ondering if there is any kind of power wire i could tap into in the doors/ i'm considering doing some LEDs in the behidn the speaker grill and ina f ew other locations but want to find out before i go and place an order for more leds.

    or, if any of you guys could lend a hand as to how and where to drill holes that'd be great.
    lawd it's been a long time

    The only wiring in your doors is for the front speakers and that is just +/- signal. It should be easy enough to just tap into a 12v source from the fuse panel located on the passenger side compartment dash and run that wire (following the speaker wires into the doors) to where you need the power for you L.E.D.s

      i don't know how to get through the door though. i think the spot where wires go through now is a little tight to push more wire through.

        When you open your doors, you can see the rubber, accordian looking tube that connects the door to the body. The wires travel through there and it is very tight.

        If you remove your interior panel that runs across the floorboard (doorjam) and up under the dash, behind that there should be a rubber or fiber type piece of material that blocks the acess to that tube. At that point if you get a piece of wire (solid not braided) or coat hanger, you can tape a braided wire to it and then grease it, snake it through carefully(with the door open) and into the door itself. Then you have a way to tape the wiring you want and pull it back and forth, just remember not to remove the first (dummy) wire until you are totally finished.

        OR, you could cut open the black rubber tube and then fish the wire through that way, it's easier and you can just tape it back up when done, but remember water does get in the jams, so the first way is better for the long run.

        Sorry that was so long and I hope it makes sense lol.
