You have footwell lights. If they aren't working chances are they are burnt out

Yup, you have em. As Jeff said, they're probably just burnt out. If you get down and look in the footwell area you'll see the lenses for them, one on each side, they'll be white dome shaped plastic. They just pull directly down and expose the socket, they release easily with just light pressure. They'll take the T-10 base as well, remember to flip the light 180° if the LEDs don't illuminate. One thing to keep in mind if you're planning to change all of your interior lights to LED, the fade feature relies on certain resistance to work properly and if all lights on the circuit are LED there won't be sufficient resistance and they'll all act up. When I first started messing with mine, all the interior lights would come on while driving and when they went through the dimming to off, they never fully went off and flickered a bit. You can either add a resistor to the circuit to replace what was lost or, the easier way, just leave your cargo light a standard incandescent bulb and it should function properly.

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

Finally installed some lighting in the cargo area, It's been on the list for some time, just made time today. I didn't get a pic of the finished rails before they were installed, but I run a bead of clear silicone on top of the LED strip to seal them in and diffuse the light a bit.

Thanks bro, but not really that complicated once you've done it a while. With this project I just built 2 separate rails using some of the many rolls of LED strips I have floating around and plastic track lighting housing. Soldered the connections from the 2 strips together into a single 2 terminal plug, then just pulled the 2 wires for the cargo light out of the harness (+red/white, -yellow/orange) and wired in the other side of the plug. I always use plugs when I wire an accessory in, makes it easily removable/replaceable if needed.

That's been on my list for a while as well. The lens on my tailgate lamp has come off and the light has come loose so it's pitch black back there. Very nicely done!
