Hey, on an '04 there are two basic changes to make. I'll put these on my Cardomain how-to when I get time.

1. Constant power for the map lights is not available. We tapped the "power point" outlet in the center bezel for that power.

2. The radio wiring colors are a little different in an '04. The switched power wire color is BK/PK (black wire, pink stripe). The dimmer line is still BL/RD.

3. The VSS wire is available in the bundle right next to the e-brake pedal. You'll have to tease it out. It's GY/BK just like in previous years. Warning: there's a BK/GY wire in there also.

Found this out when we did John's (Winks').

If you wanted to put map lights in a 2004~5 under the control of the battery saver relay as in prior years, you could tap the light green/yellow at the dimming module.

Ah, good! Thanks and I'll include that.

Hey, someone asked me about the '04 headlight switch wire colors for the mirror mod and I referred them to you. Do you have those and can post them so I can answer questions in the future? Thanks.

Why'd they have to change so many colors, lol?!

I sent a revised schematic to that someone based on what I can see in the 2004 Wiring Manual. I need to hear back from him that it works in the real world and then it's all yours, John.

Thanks. I really want to redo the garage door part and add something in there and I also want to get some really bright real white lights for it. I need to find some led bulbs for it. I think they would look the best.

Also rwenzing I just did tried the auto head light revision you sent me. I am now waiting for it to get dark to test them out fully. No smoke and no blown fuses so thats a plus. I am going to try and find that reverse wire now, the black/pink one.

It runs from the Digital Transmission Range Sensor (on the side of the transmission) back to the backup lights.

I found it but I dont think I want to try to put that on. My hands are to big to get into the tight area around the connector. I might try to get my little brother to get it :) .

I got one on Ebay for $18 shipped w/ harness and mounting bracket one time. However the guy noted that it was light gray, i turned out to be dark gray, so I installed it to see what it looked like and to make sure it worked okay, and it turns out it worked fine and it gave me the "brilliant" idea to change my ENTIRE interior to the dark gray... god im stupid sometimes..... :(
