Here is the GE8 box

It is the plug with blue and pink wires. One wire to each.

thanks for the wiring on this -- its all i needed to get started on my additional lighting -

The plug in the lower left corner of the switch is an always on power. For JUST adding lights to work with the dome light, this is an easy spot to plug in. Power on bottom left, Ground on top right. However, it's the ground on the top right that is switched on and off, that's the important one.

Anyone know the load limit for the GE dome light circuit?

I have door sill LEDs already attached in parallel and want to add some small strips in my door handles.

The strips are 4.5ma each, think it'll be a problem to install 4-8 of them? Keeping in mind what I already have installed.

Did my 2009 Fit today. BTW, the pink wire at the connector panel is the positive lead.

Pics:







The wiring harness took 1.5 hours and the install another 1.5 hours. I used the convoluted tubing under the dash and under both front seats.

I tucked the wires into the console by removing the 2 front screws and removing the rear screws. Once tucked under the console, tightened up the screws and everything is quite tidy and out of sight except for where it sneaks out briefly to the convoluted tubing.

Pretty much same install as my 2015 Fit here:

Help vios dome light wiring

I ran the wires underneather the paneling. So you cant see it. It came out pretty good. But took me longer than I expected.

Here's the pics:
