extend the wires off the main ohc Green/Orange(GN/OR) - Map light power (goes to the dome light) Black/Blue(BK/BL) - Dome light power (goes to the dome light)

Run them to your dome light

Your dome light wire colors will be another color then in these instructions.

Nice deal on the OHC. If the junkyard has no more OHCs (you could just pop one out from another), post a want to buy in the classifieds section. I'm sure someone can send you an extra for a couple bucks.

if theres nothing there just some empty cirlces then youll need a bulb socket as well if thats the case napa auto parts has one the part number is lmp PC579. but if you have a holder there its a 168 size bulb!
