Hi Johny, My name is***** will be glad to help. Click on this link for the electrical schematic showing the wiring for the optional lighting. The part numbers can be super-seeded and upgraded so its best to go right through the dealer to have them look up the option by serial number.

Ok i see the squematics, the parts i can find in my parts book. Lets assume i have all the parts, where can i find the wires ill need, can you explain me how do i install them?

What are the steps to connect them. The wiring is what is complicated for me. In the meantime i will look for the other hardware
Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

Most of this should be plug and play and the harness should accept the switches and lights as there will likely be empty connectors tied up and tucked away in the harness. The schematics will help you identify the wire numbers fir the lights.
