Big thanks for the DIY. It took me about 1 1/2 hour for the install, the hardest part for me was getting the dang clip out lol.

Also, this may be a dumb question but the lights stay on constantly (without ignition turned to on or acc) is this normal or is it supposed to only turn on when you open the door?

They should operate the same as the dome lights. Push the door plunger switch in with your hand and see if they go out with the dome light. Maybe you wired them wrong?

Hi - does anyone have a picture or diagram of the wires / wire location in the harness / connector from the BCM used for the illuminated kick panels? I would like to know what wires (color and or PIN number with a diagram of the connector) are used for the illuminated kicks from the BCM for some similar DIY lighting.

Or as jburke26 previously asked:

Anyone have a pinout diagram of the T-harness that is included with the illuminated kick plates?

Thanks

Thank you for this thread and the YT link. I followed the instructions without realizing I didn't read the official Nissan instructions. I was so caught up into it I forgot to remove the adhesive tape (and didn't clean with alcohol but i guess won't matter if i didn't tape it)

The dog ate one of the "push nut" for the console

Does anyone knows where to get the wiring harness? I got the plates but not the wiring necessary for the installation.

Sent you a PM last Friday. The wiring harness can be yours for $35 plus shipping. Let me know if you're interested.
