Default I want red interior lights for my new 2014 scion tC, but...

I know absolutely nothing about cars and their electrical systems...also, I'm very new to the forum...

Any help would be appreciated, thank you

you could always switch the dome light bulbs with red LED bulbs, it's cheap and takes 2 minutes

Ah, so it's complicated then...

I've read that the Interior Lighting Kit from the dealership is below par...so if anyone knows anywhere in the Houston, Texas area to get this done at a relatively good price, I'd love to know. Thanks!

Just read my thread Chris posted. It's pretty straightforward. Tap into the 12v, wire in a switch, and ground it. Not too difficult!

highperformancebulbs.com has a red LED light swap kit for $39.00
directions come with it. You'll need a small reg screw driver to pop light covers off.
it'll take you 10 minutes tops. you don't need to know anything about electrical to do it.
