I'll have to do some research, but in th e"Jeep" illuminated sills where do the instructions tell you to tap into a source?
Can't imagine they do as the product is intended as a replacement for the exact same part. Probably just shows the connector (which you will have to make/modify). Not really one of those "mod" parts.

MY15 wiring diagrams aren't posted on wk2jeeps yet but here is the MY14 one for the interior lighting. Should be enough to decide where/how to tap.

Good luck.....

Thanks for the info. Yeah I assumed these won't come with any instructions whatsoever since it's just a replacement part, however the "jeep" illuminated sills are available as an accessory so those should have instructions and I can only imagine these will install identically as those.

As I recall from reading the instructions, they tap into the underdash foot lights.

Re: Are the '15 Summit illuminated sills available to purchase?

Received the sills the other day and installed them yesterday. I'm very happy with the purchase and LOVE the look. Installation was easy for me but I'm familiar with doing that kind of stuff. I simply tapped into the footwell lights that go on when the doors open as suggested by the Jeep accessory sills.
Color is hard to judge based off the pics but it is the exact same "purplish blue" of the dash lighting and they look awesome! I paid like $155 shipped from an online parts store.
Pictures arent anything great but here they are! Also, one person above said they thought they were cheap looking on his '15 Summit. Everyone has their own opinion, but I completely disagree. I think they look fantastic.

All in all for both sides I would give yourself an hour. The factory footwell lighting is pretty easily accessible as well so if you are able to tap into a couple wires and solder (if you prefer soldering), then this is an easy job. Wire taps are also an option and would make the job even quicker.

Re: Are the '15 Summit illuminated sills available to purchase?

Can you confirm those numbers? I looked online and can't find anything regarding 'illuminated summit'. Also I spent half an hour with a parts guy and all he could find with those numbers was the 30.00 plastic protectors , again nothing with the summit on it. I can find the 'illuminated' jeep everywhere they are easy to find but nothing out there at all on these.

Yes I can 100% confirm part numbers: 5SQ05LU5AC and 5SQ04LU5AC are the correct numbers for the brown '15 Summit illuminated sills. Those were actually found from my local Jeep parts guy first, then I called him back later with a VIN from a brown interior '15 Summit and he verified it again they are correct. I then ordered from a random mopar online parts vendor that had the best price and exactly what I wanted showed up at my door.
I also found out that a search for those part numbers will never mention "illuminated". Also, if you search mopar online parts for a '15 Summit the illuminated sills never show up. All it shows is the standard ones.
If you need the black ones I don't have the numbers for that, just the brown ones. Either way the parts dude at my local Jeep dealership seemed to find them no problem at all, he even said his computer showed them as "illuminated".

Hope this helps.

Re: Are the '15 Summit illuminated sills available to purchase?

Ok , I will try and see if the other dealer can find the part numbers as I do have black inside my white summit. Now do they have to be the color of the interior? I had the understanding that the new part just popped into where the color part popped out then you wire it in to the underseat lighting.

I was also thinking the door pin might work as that turns it on and off when the doors are opened.

Yes it has to be the correct interior color. Only the aftermarket Jeep accessory illuminated sills are the inserts only. These are the full piece.
You can tap into whatever source you want to power these, but I chose the footwell lights since those go on and off with the doors. That and the fact that it's easily accessible. I have no idea where the door pin wiring is and not only that but is it even a constant 12v source?

Re: Are the '15 Summit illuminated sills available to purchase?

I just made a call to the other parts department and they found the part number very fast. Same part numbers but with black you replace the LU5 with DX9 and if you have the brown/black you replace the LU5 with another number that has DT9. Looks like cost in Canada is 162 per side , and the parts come from the US , special order.
