Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

I’m Justin with, and I’m checking out these illuminated door sill plates for all 2005-2012 Mustangs. When Ford totally transformed the S197 Mustangs, most of the attention was focused on the exterior changes made, but there were some cool interior changes made as well, with the MyColor feature introduced in the 05, and later the ambient lighting package in 08. These genuine Ford OEM panels were part of that ambient lighting package, and now any 05-12 Mustang can enjoy that cool styling, complete with a stainless steel accent and modern LED lighting illuminating the word “Mustang” automatically when the doors open and close. Since this is an OEM part, the fit and finish is dead on as you might expect. If your car isn’t equipped with the ambient lighting package, you will need to wire these panels in, which really isn’t all that hard thanks to the detailed instructions. However if your car is equipped with the ambient lighting package, these panels are completely Plug and Play. Either way the install is very straightforward and should take you no more than 30 minutes. So if you’re a fan of interior customization and your car wasn’t equipped with these sill plates from the factory, here’s your chance to add some really cool unique interior lighting that’s sure to get you noticed.

Mustang Styling. Add impressive modern styling to your Mustang's interior with a set of genuine Ford Illuminated Door Sill plates that feature "Mustang" lettering. They turn on and off automatically when the door is open and closed.

Premium Quality. Molded from premium quality high-impact charcoal-black plastic with a brushed stainless steel insert, these Door Sill Plates emit a LED glow that spells out the "Mustang" name. They are a plug-and-play design on Mustang's already equipped with Illuminated Sill Plates. Mustangs that are not already equipped with Illuminated Sill Plates will have to hard wire the sills to complete the installation.

Choice Of Colors. These CDC Illuminated Door Sill Plates are compatible with or without the "My Color" Ambient Lighting System. When installed in Mustangs without the factory Ambient Lighting System, they glow in one of 4 colors - Red, White, Blue, or Green - dependent upon how you wire. When installed in an Ambient Lighting equipped Mustang, you have the choice of all the ambient colors.

Application. This set of two Illuminated Mustang Door Sill Plates are designed to fit all 2005 to 2014 Mustangs, including the V6, GT, Bullitt, Boss and Shelby GT500 models. Includes driver and passenger side sills.

How are the four colors selected; you show only one parts number? My 2007 Mustang GT has My Color instrumentation so are the color selections made from the menu set up for the dash? Any detail installation information available to review prior to actually purchasing the sills?


  • If you take a nine volt bat and hook up to your sill you will know what wire lights up to what color then the plug on car can use a lighted tester to find wire to what color takes a bit of time but pretty easy .

    This product looks great. As you may know, you have the option of four colors, red, blue, green, and white. I wanted to use blue however it was a little too blue. Reflecting back to my school days I found that there are more color options available. You can use two wires and make different colors. Blue and red makes purple, red and green makes brown, and the one that I used was the blue and green which gave me a light blue. It looks great. Thanks AM.

    Looks awesome at night..

    Got these to replace the cheap door sills in my base model 2012 V6 which did NOT come with the ambient lighting package. Install took only a couple of hours, I cut the plugs that you could use if you had the ambient lighting package, there were 4 wires, one ground and three positive wires (different combinations changes the color). I used a 9 volt battery to find the color I wanted (used all three wires to make white). I then removed the map/dome light cover and used tapping splices to tap into the map light, used 18 gauge wire from AutoZone and ran the wire through the headliner and down the pillar. After the install I must say they look awesome! High quality look.

    Great product bad Instructions

    Yes looking at my ratings I rate this product high on all levels. It fits in my car like a glove and actually looks like it was a feature on the car. The price was extremely good because they where on sale, but even if I paid regular price I would say they are worth every penny. Everyone who have seen them love the look and are instantly impressed. Installation would have been easy but the instructions on the wiring for the 2012 mustang Without the ambient light package where incorrect. they tell you the power wire is a green/yellow wire and they are right if you want your doorsills on all the time. I mean even when the car is off the will be on. I was trying to have the tie into the done lights and go out when they do. After a little trial and error I found the proper wire (gray) that tied to the done lights. It took me a few hours to wire then figure it was wrong and rewire but in the end am more than satisfied with the results. I went with blue and also installed some blue LEDs in my footwell blue and the effect is simply amazing. If your thinking of getting this product for your car dont hesitate any longer buy them now and make your car look amazing.

    Works and looks awesome!

    These are great. Look great, work great, fit great, great price, what more can I say? The hardest part of the installation was actually removing the stock panels and also the other factory panels that you need to route the wires, and frankly even if you haven't removed interior panels before, it's just not that hard. The instructions were a little confusing when i first looked at them, but once I sat down, laid them out, and traced through the pictures and's pretty basic. Just figure out whether you have the 2010+ illumination package or not. If you do, installation is cake, because the illumination package already has allowances for these plates. If you don''re completely...okay. You just have to use the crimp-splices to wire them in. The plates will do red, green, blue, and white, depending on how you wire them up. (Again, if you have the illumination package, you don't need to worry about this.) Unless you make a custom switch, you can only wire one color choice up, but you probably already have an idea of what color you want. Once you pick the color, just follow the instructions. They say what color wire goes where to make that light color appear. Hints: Do the passenger side first. It's easiest, mainly because you don't have the steering wheel in the way or any other wires except the ones you're looking for. Also, leave the protective plastic on the aluminum plates until you're completely done, so you don't accidentally scratch or dent them during installation. Also, pay attention when you're taking things apart, and you'll have no problems getting things lined up when you put it all back together. The order of re-assembly is very important, otherwise things just turn out crooked and bent. Take your time and it'll be great. If you slam and bash this, you're going to have a headache.

    Fun addition

    The illuminated door sill plates are a fun addition to any Mustang. I chose shop install only because I had other parts from American Muscle installed at same time. I was surprised at the bill and length of time but note tar some of American Muscle time estimates tend to be too short. Nonetheless the fit and finish blend well with my Mustsn and I recommend to any enthusiast

    Illuminated door sills for my 2005 mustang convertable

    My 2005 V6 Premium needed some of the "bling" as in the newer models. The door sills are great. You can pick from 5 different colors ( white, green, blue, aqua, or red). Picked red to match the car. I have been asking Ford for these 3 yrs ago and was told that they wouldn't work in my car. This kit fits like a glove. Wiring takes some time and effort, but is very managable if you take your time. I used other wiring splices than what is provided for under the sills. Used a splice that is weather proof. The lighted chrome really adds to the look of the car. Get very good comments on the look. Great price and service too.

    Harder to install than you think......

    We spent an afternoon trying to install them, but they still aren't in. I have a 2014, so maybe there's something not covered in the instruction. Anyway, I'm sure we will get it right sooner or later, and they did look nice when we installed them (even if they didn't work). It shouldn't be as hard to wire as it it.

    Great Add on..Adds some WoW Factor

    Look really great. Hardest part of install was getting started on figuring out the initial wires to hook up. The wires on the part are not color coded like shown in the instructions, but the placement of the wire for the desired color was in the same place as shown. Also had a little issue with getting the wire connector to clamp tight enough on the part to make solid contact...But minor set back...Looks Great!!!

    Great Product, Bad Instructions

    These door sills were great only problem with them was the instructions. They sucked. Thankfully we found detailed instructions online. The one thing to remember is that the gray wire with purple stripe on the passenger side is the one to hook up not the yellow green. other than that they are amazing and i cannot wait to see what they look like tonight!

    Great lookq

    Great add on to the interior, simple to install, only thing is for the 2014 gt the power wire is brown and purple not yellow and green like the direction say. So after hunting that wire down it was smooth sailing. So besides that the install time is 30 min and it pretty simple. Great directions and the colors are quite nice.

    failed after 6 months.

    I installed this product around six months ago and until about 2 weeks ago they were great. They worked perfectly and then once it got cold outside my drivers side plate started to change colors and became yellow instead of blue (idk if it has anything to do with the cold). It also looks like there may be some water in the "sealed" lighted part. I dont know about you but for 200$ I expect the product to last more than 6 months. I took it in and they said that everything is wired fine. They also switched it to red which worked for a couple days then change to a white/yellow. So overall I loved the look but I am going to have buy new ones after just 6 months. :(

      The water seems to be the culprit here, unfortunately, causing the colors to change on their own. We'll gladly get you set up with a replacement though - just give us a call!
