Mike thanks

This is what I did. I bought three new style interior lights, a plunger for the back, and the door bracket off a 90sw for the plunger to hit, I bought the wiring harness for the front lights and two for the rear out of a 90. I removed the old headliner and used templates made by ZE for exact size holes for the new lights. I cut the holes and had the old headliner recovered. Yes I bought all new push pins too. So that is how I got to where I am.


So I have all this crap ready to go in. Can I run the rear plunger cable directly to the back light if the back light also has the ground going to it or should i run the rear plunger cable forward to the ground that hooks up the front plungers before I plug into any light?

Take another look at Chance's diagram. You need to connect the purple/blue wire coming from the front door switches to all three lights. The rear plunger then just needs to be connected to the same terminal on the rear light. This way all three lights will come on when any of the doors is opened.

Mike,
One thing I've always wanted to do on my truck is wire the two lights together so when I open any door they both go on. Not to complicate things but...do you know how to do that?

Yup,
Add a wire that connects the PURPLE/BLUE wire from the back light to the PURPLE/BLUE wire on the front light.
An additional wire that is spliced into the originals, don't cut anything, just add onto that ground circuit.

Thanks everyone!!! Did it today and everything works great. Will post pics tomorrow. Biggest issue is I cant get the liner pins in. I should say I can't get half of them in. I can't seem to line them up with the roof holes.

Such rage

Welcome to the club! I got most of them in, but there are a few I still need to get straightened out.

The lights I have to say are awesome and I am glad I left the switch in the dash. Right now they go on if I open the front doors or the rear door or if I am inside and want to flip them all on at once I just hit the dash switch. Kind of cool.

Right on! Glad you got it sorted out.

I used an awl to line things up and a rubber mallet to tap the plastic pins in. Patience and a liberal dose of cuss words are required.

According to the parts catalogue the AMR3158 is for the front light and AMR3322 is the harness for the rear lights. Whats the difference?

I purchased the AMR3322 Rear Light Harness to add onto my AMR3158 Front wiring harness. I understand the Diagram but still have trouble figuring out which plug goes where. The rear wiring harness has a wide plastic plug on one end with two wires coming out of that plug; Purple and purple/blue stripe. As mentioned here, purple is constant power and the purple/blue is ground/door switch. What confuses me is that the other end of the cable has two connectors. The purple/blue (ground) has a flat connector with plastic over it. This one seems to fit the ground point on the lamp. The other plug on that end has the purple (power) and it ends with a weird looking cylindrical connector that looks like an audio jack except it is hollow. Where does this one go? Which plug attached to the rear light and which goes to the front? I'm confused.

Yes its a NAS SW D90.

No. The front one is stock. The rear has no liner (I am putting one back in) and two bizarro lights that I am replacing with the stock rear wiring harness and light I just purchased. Just trying to put it all back the way its supposed to be (albeit with hi-intensity LEDs). I would like to set it up like you did where the front/rear doors activate both lights.

Do you have a plunger and everything for the rear door? I did use the harness but it was not plug and play. I basically used the connectors so that the rear door acts as a third door. I just extended the power and grounds that go to the front light to the back light. I also extended the power and ground to the back door plunger. I wold have to look through this thread but I think it should be laid out. It was confusing to me until I actually did it and played with the wires etc.

There is a plunger for the rear door but it isn't hooked up to anything as far as I know and I don't know if it is working. So when you extended power & ground from the front... did you splice into the existing cables of the front light? Its the plugs on the rear harness that confuses me. Am I meant to plug these in somewhere or wire them into something? Perhaps that's what I have to do, get the diagram and just start messing with it.

Well the 110 didnt have any of this so I had to cut the ends of back door plug. I think you can wire the hot wire from the light to the plunger. The screw holding the plunger acts as the ground

Thanks Barry. I will give it a shot. I need to remove the old rear light wiring first and do a clean install because the old stuff is independent from the front light right now.

I can't believe how easy this was to install! It's one of those things that seem complicated in theory but once you start messing with it, it's a no-brainer. Thanks for the excellent walk-through.
