Default Pretty mad.. Can anyone help?

So I was reading someone elses thread about changing out the interior lights to LED lights so I went to autozone (where the person said he got them from) and I bought them. I got home and started to install them and found this...





Does anyone know how to install these or is it even possible?

Really? The dome light power comes from that wire on the roof.... splice the red wire into that and use use the screw to mount it to the roof as the ground. Its that easy.

I know I probably sound really dumb right now but I'm not sure what you're trying to say to do..

.... hook the RED wire on the thingydoo you just bought to the wire on the ceiling. Hook the BLACK wire off the thingydoo around a screw that touches bare metal to create a solid circuit.

I'm trying very hard right now not to belittle you..

That being said, READ MY PREVIOUS POSTS AND MAKE THE RED WIRE TOUCH THE COPPER ON THE INSIDE OF THE GREEN WIRE IN YOUR PICTURE. THEN TOUCH THE BLACK WIRE OFF YOUR LED TO BARE METAL.

GO OUT SIDE, AND DO THAT... THEN REPORT BACK.

Would I have to take that black piece off the green wire? how would I connect it to the green wire and what do I do with that bulb that comes with it?
