So, Ive swapped all the bulbs inside to LEDs, and now, I want to get some footwell lighting done up.

I want to have them flip on when the doors open, but I have a question. Is there an easy way of getting them wired up?

I have no issues tearing the door apart to get at the wires, just wondering if there is access to them under the dash?

Or, if anyone has a wiring chart, I can do it up from there :D

Thanks for any help!

Squally!

I have the illuminated door sil plates and it shows how to wire those up to the BCM harness.

If you remove the driver side kick panel, the BCM has a few connectors on the side facing the rear of the vehicle.
See the diagram below.

Awesome!

Im going to get the sills a bit later. I work oilfield so my interiour is usually a mess. Going to get some heavier-duty sills rather than the lit mazda ones (which I do like a lot)

What kind of lights did you use for your footwells?

I currently have the Mazda Welcome Illumination kit, have not got any pictures of them, but my interior looks very similar to this

Honestly, I just tapped into the dome light (which turns on when the doors open) and routed the wires through the edge of the headliner, down the side pillar and behind the dash. It was relatively easy and didn't take long at all. You can't see anything but the lights. You'd never know it wasn't stock. Let me know if you need any help.

TEKNOnaut can you let me know how you done this in a bit more detail?

Thanks
I doubt they're going to respond to a question a year later. I did this but mine goes through the glovebox light. It only comes on when the headlights are on which is pretty useful. I later added a switch so they could be turned off manually. My setup is wired from the power side of the glovebox lamp through the center console to inside the center storage area (behind the parking brake handle) to an illluminated switch. It then is wired to both driver and passenger side wheelwells to the lights then back to the ground side of the glovebox light. If you want I can get some pictures together.
