How to-add Lighted Visors to your WK
 
ok...when you get the visors...go somewhere that has electrical wire and buy about 10ft(5 ft of one color and 5 feet of another) that is the same or one size bigger than the wires on the visors. Also buy some "quick splices" for that size as well. Also get the little splices that look like a tube and you can connect 2 different wires together.(sorry dont know the name) One stripped wire in one end and crimp...one stripped wire in another end and crimp.

disconnect negative battery terminal

1...remove the a pillars...2 bolts under the little square covers
2-unbolt both sunvisors---2 bolts on one side and one phillips screw holding the visor clip
3-grab the dome light bezel by the bottom and pull down...then pull the top out. Unclip both harnesses.
4-peel the tape back on both harnesses
5-cut enough of the wire you bought to go from the visor wire to the center dome lamp
6-cut/strip the insulation back 1/2" on both ends of all 4 wires
7-find the black wire on the larger harness(5 wires) and find the red wire on the smaller harness(3 wires)
8-use the quick splice...you will need 4--- 1 on each wire to connect to the harnesses
9-do the positive wires first(red)-insert the stripped end of the wire into the quick splice side that has a stopper and then put the quick splice over the red wire(it will go all the way through the quick splice) and crimp it down. then snap the cover over. Do the same for the other positive wire and the two black grounds
10-run the positive and negative wires over to the visors and use the tube splice. Insert the stripped wires in each end of the tube splice and crimp.

I also covered all the splices in electrical tape

connect the battery and test the visors

11-reinstall the visors and dome light being careful not to crimp the wires. Tuck all the wires under the headliner before reinstalling everything.

12 reinstall the a pillars

Hey you did it the way I did mine. When I brought the visors I was told there would be a plug there, and Well we all know there wasn't. I was just about to put it back together, and I saw the light ( joke ).
