Author Topic: Add Side Rear Reading Lights?  (Read 3597 times)

Some have talked about the rear reading lights for the passengers in another thread.  These are at the coat hook location above the rear doors.  I believe the 01 and 02 at least had these in all/some of the packages.  I had them when I had a '01 1SB GT with them and want to add them to my '04 1SC Rally.

Anyway I had to get some fasteners from the dealer and had them do a search for the part numbers.  The left is 10423150 and the right one is 10423149.  They were asking for $35 each and GM Parts Direct is asking 17.24 each.  I forgot to ask if there were different colors but I believe there is only the gray.

I have not looked for the wireing behind the headliner.  It may or may not be there depending on the year of your 'Tek.  I am assuming it will not be in my '04.  I figure if I can wire the lights with constant power so the switch will turn it on I will be happy.  I will have to run power from somewhere at that time.  Most likely from the dash or the door wireing.

No plans to do this anytime soon but I will do this eventually.  Thought others may be interested in the part numbers.

Thanks for the info.  And I have been told that the wiring is not there.  I would like to though be able to have them turn on and off by the switch on them but also with the interior lighting too.  I assume that it could be dual wired possibly and have wires come off of the rear center light as well.  I think with two positives and a common ground that it would work fine.

Good idea!  I didn't think of the rear light.  That is closer too.

Remember though, if you go off the rear light then they will only be on when the rest of the interior lighting is on.  I would still run the wires somewhere else too and I would think that you could power lines if you want them to be always on or controlled by the switch (if they have one) then you could run power to the rear power ourlet.  That would be the closest "always on" power that I know of.  Let me know how it goes, I'm kinda interested in doing it myself.

I know i know Old thread Smiley

Here is the overhead wiring schematics for a aztek as you can see they tap into the rear view mirror wiring which makes since the rear view mirror lights do the same functions which means get some wire run it along the perimeter to the front and tap into the wire harness.  the liner comes away pretty easy without the overhead console/

ok so if you want to run these the nice way without going crazy with diagrams,
1 attatch ur new light's ground securly...
2 find the power wire going to the dome lamp in the ceiling and connect it to the red wire of ur new dome light...
3 connect a constant hot wire to third wire of the dome light...

Now the light will turn on when the door is opened or when you flip the switch...  This is provided there is a constant and a switched wire... if not there is a diode and another switch to be used....
