Where would I find a wiring diagram for the headlights (or whole car) on an 07 Dodge Charger SRT8? What I want to do is hook up grill lights to the headlights so they come on when I lock/unlock the doors. I cant just hook them up to the power for the headlights because i want the grill lights to be on when the headlights are off too (switch in the car). Im trying to figure out what wire tells the headlights to come on, and maybe connect it to the grill lights (or some other method). My dad worked for AT&T for 25 yrs so he can read a wiring diagram pretty damn good, so if someone can lead me to where to find all the wiring diagrams that would be helpful. THANKS

I been wondering the same. You might have to tap the power from the courtesy lights in backseat. From what I been told from another member on this site is that you can connect to a yellow cable that is connect to the rear door lights, according to him, the door lights have two source of power, one that only turns on and off with the remote and one that turns on by pressing the light switch.

I have no idea. I wish I did because I want to do the same thing as you with grill lights turning on when car is lock and unlocked.

Try contacting MyMopar or take a look at his thread. He put in lights but at the door handles.

What about the Dealership? maybe you can find a nice employee who will pull up an electric chart and print it for you


i would think your best bet is to buy one of those mechanic books about your car. They are usually like 20 bucks and I would think should have some wiring diagrams in them..not 100% sure though...

I don't think the books are that detailed. I think they just show an overall but not much.

Gotcha...I was just throwing ideas out there....Sending a pm to MyMopar is prolly the best idea since he did it with his LED door handles.

WrenchJeff, thats a lot of diagrams, hopefully it will help gr8tsrt8 out. It won't help me cause I don't know how to read them, lol.


WrenchJeff are you familiar with the underhood engine light mod? under hood light taken from the police package

Hood Lamp: # 56021441
Wiring Harness: # 56051176AB

Just wondering if you know if there is a place to plug in the wire harness to the car? PCM plug in or ?

Hey thanks jeff, ill show those to my dad (he worked at AT&T for 20 yrs and can read those like the back of his hand). where did you find those and how do you know they are for a charger? Or are they for a specific year?

I tried contacting MYmopar on his lava lights post, but no new info was given. He suggested one of those remote starters. Those are a great idea but not what im looking for on this mod.

Ill post updates after i get it done or after my dad looks at em. Thanks
