Hey Mazda 3 Fam,

So recently I installed LED lights along the grille (just like the ones on a Mazda 6) and made an install video for everyone! Fun and fairly simple DIY project.

Enjoy!

Let me know what you guys think.
Special thanks to Hannah and the FB group for the inspiration.

P.S. it kind of pops out from time to time. What is a good way to keep it from popping out?

How much did it cost all in?
Just the parts alone probably like around $15?
I bought kits so I have a lot of extra parts for future projects. So in total probably around $40

Oh nice. I kinda want to try this for a couple bucks on my 2017...

Try automotive double sided tape on the parts that keep popping out and see if that helps?
Do it! I am totally happy with it
I will try that. Thanks!

That looks really good. A tap could also be ran off of the actual low beam/parking lights, if you didn't want the leds on all the time the car is running.

I wonder how the Mazda one is wired. I mean you can buy the kit on Japanparts and it says that the wiring is included.
another website lists these part numbers (Signature Wing B63B-V4-580 & B45A-V7-790 Intermediate Harness)
One thing to note is the Illumination badge also uses that same harness.



I also found these images online.
The first one is from this website which shows some more info. http://minkara.carview.co.jp/userid/245097/car/1504522/3931242/note.aspx

Those might be the same. All the links are on my video on youtube in the description.
I had to buy the fuse tap adapter on amazon.

Do it!!!

Yeah I am going to switch it to a different one soon.

How did you wire it?
On my video in the main post I go through the setup.

Yeah I would be interested in seeing what they actually did.

Thanks for the awesome video!

Have you try tapping it somewhere else? I tried it with the Tail fuse so it comes on with the parking lights, but for some reason it stays on even when the car is off.

Of course! You can try it in a few places. See if it stays on or not.

i would love to do that, but i have the BN GT and im wondering if the color temperature would match my LED headlights...
You can find ones with a similar temperature to your headlights. just gotta hunt for them.
