Question LED Underdash Lighting Installation Question



I bought the under dash lighting and was expecting some directions but none came ... only the led tubing, the wires sticking out, and a switch. I assume the wires can be tied into the door lights somehow and that the switch is unnecessary, but I guess I'm a little clueless. Its been a long while since I worked on a car, but am genekally mechanically inclined with a little bit of guidance, so..... Can anyone give me some basic guidance on where I need to hook these wires in to make them work when I open the door?

Actually, they are still sitting on my table. Guapo gave me good directions, but it was basically winter and I didn't want to start something and be in the middle of it. So, the lights have sat waiting as I did easier and other needed projects; it is on my near term list now (because I don't have much more in hand to work). There needs to be more 'play' hours in a week.

Make sure you zip tie the lights under your dash. The 3M tape will not hold when you start using your heat. If you tie them up, there up for good.
