Question How do you install the Footwell Illumination Kit (H201SSC000) in the '09 FXT/WRX/STI?

How do you install the Footwell Illumination Kit (H201SSC000) into the '09 FXT/WRX/STI? How does it work? Does it sense the car is in Park or the door is open?

They are on all the time the lights are on.

The driver side bolts injust above the Data Link Connector and on the Forester I believe it double side taped to the foot well under tray on the passenger side. The harness then plugs in line with the mood light in the front console cubby.

If anyone else knew, but I contacted Subaru, and they sent me the instructions in a pdf file - so I posted them up to share with everyone here.

Today I installed the blue footwell lights in my 09 Forester. I don't have any pictures yet. I installed it myself. If I can do it anybody can. The instructions are not great. The toughest part for me was figuring out that the metal bracket is not used for the passenger side for the Forester. Removing the light from the bracket was tricky but I got it off. I had to bend the bracket to get it out. There is no splicing of wires. The harness that it comes with plugs into the harness for the little cubbie hole light. Running the wire over to the driver's side and then to the passenger's side was not difficult at all. On the driver's side, there is already a hole drilled to mount the light with the supplied hardware. On the passenger side, they give you a template to show where it goes. This is a little tricky. They suggest drilling a hole to run the harness through. I did not do this step. I honestly saw no reason to drill a hole when the harness can be easily tucked around the plastic covering that is beneath the glove box. Besides there were wires back there and I didn't want to risk hitting anything with the drill bit. If you want to drill the hole, I would suggest taking the plastic cover off. It's held on by 3 of those push pin fasteners which are a pain to get off. I tried. I gave up. The passenger side light is mounted with the supplied double sided tape. Because of the location of the lights, it looks to me like the driver side appears to be a little brighter. The driver's side light is more centered in the footwell. The passenger light is off a little to the side. It's not dark yet so I haven't been able to really try it out yet. The part number for the blue light kit is H201SSC000. The red light kit is H201SSC100. The part was $46 from my dealer. By the way they wanted $160 to install it.

After doing this install there's no doubt to me that Subaru could very easily come up with a similar kit for the glove box.

I think this kit works with the 2008/2009 Impreza line and the 2009 Forester line. Check with SOA for compatibility.


The Blue Footwell Lighting is a Subaru part, and the part number is: H201SSC000

They also make Red Footwell Lighting, and that part number is: H201SSC100

i thought about getting this, but then i realized it only comes on when the ebrake is pulled...

how much time do you honestly spend in a car with the ebrake pulled?

Maybe if it was like mood lighting, which stayed on when you're driving i would buy it.

Are you sure - I think it taps into the line that lights up the cubby

It is wired directly off of the light in the cubby so whenever your headlights are on, your footwell will be illuminated. I was thinking about putting the neons I pulled from my totalled focus in there and wiring it up, but this seems like a more elegant solution. $40 ain't bad for the kit.

Really? That seems dumb IMO. Light pollution while driving FTL.

I turn down all my interior/cluster light as dim as possible but still readable when driving especially on the highway.

I've got blue footwell CFLs installed, wired to a switched feed from the cig lighter. $12 plus about 45 mins for the install using these:

Had to extend one set of the leads but it was cake. The switch is on the center console where the heated seat switches would be.

Why do people really worry what other people think of how your car looks. i rocked a wing on my mirage for years, took the abuse, but I left it on b/c I liked it. I thought peer pressure stopped making people do/not do things once high school was over...

I just bought some random blue leds for my floor and wired them into the dome light so when the door opens they turn on, and when you close it they dim off

There is a sweet (cheaper) alternative!

This is a bit silly because you need to turn them on by a switch when in reality you would need them to come on as you open and close the doors. I plan to do as above.
