why waste your money on line out converters and running a buck of wire cut the outputs from the back of the head unit run themwith 9wire into a high-level input on your amp run a 9wire from output of back back into the leads you just created when you cut the wires on the back of the head unit.

Some people don't want to or don't feel comfortable with taking the heads apart and stripping the wires to twist them together. This is just an option for those people that just want a plug and play experience rather than doing all that.

Because it takes 5 minutes.....
And it's a simple way to do it.

This list is to help people. Write a how-to for people if it bothers you so much 👍

Does anyone have instructions on how to remove the dome light housing or how to access the dome lights/map lights to be able to swap them out for LED's? Thanks.

Awesome thanks! Looks like both of those are for the rear light only, but ill give it a try.
So it looks like to get to the bulb you just gotta remove the clear plastic cover, not the entire housing.
So I just did this install today of swapping the interior lights, trunk light, and license plate lights out for LED's.
A few tips I can recommend is:
1. For the front map lights, get a small flat head screw driver and begin to pry away the plastic cover (the cover that you physically push in to turn the lights on) starting from the outer edge and working towards the windshield. Itll pop off pretty easy. this is true for both sides.

2. for the rear dome light, pry away the plastic cover starting from the side and working towards the front of the car, then itll pop off.

Hope this helps but if anyone has any questions feel free to ask.
