Video Transcript for Westin Sure Grip Running Board LED Light Kit Installation - 2012 Chevrolet Traverse

Today on our 2012 Chevrolet Traverse, we'll be adding the Westin LED light kit, part number 27-6000. To begin our install we'll first need to locate where we'll be mounting our lights on the running boards. Before I mount the lights, I'm going to go ahead and wrap up the wires with some black electrical tape, this will help bundle the wires and clean up our install look while also assisting and protecting them over time. Now with the wires taped up, then remove the two-way adhesive on the back of the light and firmly secure it into position. Note this is a one time use and cannot be reattached. Now with our lights mounted we'll need to take the wiring harness and start routing our wires. Keep in mind when routing your wires, stay away from any moving components such as the steering suspension or excessive heat such as the exhaust.

You'll note that the wire harness pigtails will match up with the light pigtails so we'll be able to connect black to black and red to red. We'll also go ahead and wrap it up with some black electrical tape to help keep out any dust, dirt, debris or moisture or prevent corrosion. In some situations, there will be an excess amount of wire and we'll bundle that up with zip ties and store it safely inside the frame. Now with all four light hooked up and our wires run underneath the vehicle, we'll need to take the remaining power and ground wire and run it up through the engine compartment to the top of the engine bay. Here we'll route it over to the driver's side inner fender well, to make it easier to get our wire to the top of the engine bay and over to the inner fender well we're going to go ahead and remove the top engine cover. To remove it, we'll need to remove all the multiple pushpin fasteners that secure the engine cover. Now with all the fasteners out of the way, we'll go ahead and set the cover aside. Here we can remove the ground stud, strip back the ground wire which will be our black wire, add our ring terminal and then reinstall the ground stud with the new ring terminal to ground our harness.

Next we'll need to get our power wire routed inside the vehicle. We'll need to remove the under body panel here on the interior above the gas and brake pedal. To do this we'll remove the three pushpin fasteners, set them aside and then lower and remove the under body panel. Now using one of the manufacturer's grommets and an additional piece of power wire, we'll start from the inside by using our utility knife to cut a slice in the grommet and then push our wire through. We'll go underneath the vehicle, pull the wire out and route it to the top of the engine bay and over towards the driver's side inner fender well where we left our harness. Now with the top of the engine bay on the driver's side we'll go ahead and strip back both power wires from the Westin LED light kit and the red wire we just ran and use a butt connector to connect these two. Once we crimp it down we'll go ahead and wrap it up with some black electrical tape then we'll go ahead and secure our wiring here underneath the hood.

Once we secure the wiring we'll go ahead and cut off the excess from the zip ties to clean up the install look. Next we'll go ahead move back inside and take the red wire we just routed outside and run it over towards the body control module. Once we get to the body control module, we're going to connect it with the second connector which is a white connector and a gray wire with a black tracer, this is the power wire for the door trigger switch which will also actuate the doom light. To gain access to the gray wire we'll go ahead and cut away some of the black electrical tape securing it. Now that we have that out of the way we'll go ahead and take our quick splice connector feed it over the gray and black wire and then we'll cut to length our power wire and feed it into the quick splice connector, crimp it down and close the clasp. Next we'll go ahead and secure the red wire underneath and make sure we keep it away from any moving components. Once we've secured it we'll cut off the excess from the zip ties and then reinstall the under body panel. Now with all of our connections made we'll go ahead and reinstall the front engine cover and its multiple pushpin fasteners.

With that we've completed the install of the Westin LED light kit, part number 27-6000 on our 2012 Chevy Traverse. .

  • Westin Replacement LED Light Kit for Westin Running Boards
  • The Westin LED Light Kit, # 27-6000, is designed for use with the Westin Sure-Grip running boards. Part # 27-9904 that you mentioned is a set of replacement lenses and housings for molded, lighted running boards. The molded running boards are not the same as the Sure-Grip running boards so the LED light kit will not fit the molded running boards. For replacement bulbs for the molded, lighted boards use # 27-9905 and for replacement wiring harness use # 27-9903.

  • Do the Black Westin Sure-Grip Running Boards, # 27-6125-1835 Match the GMC Black on a 2008 Acadia
  • The Westin Sure-Grip Running Boards, # 27-6125-1835, are a typical black matte with a little bit of a semi-gloss sheen. It will probably not be an exact match but will provide a subtle two tone sort of effect. The optional light kit, # 27-6000, is not as simple as a plug and play installation but accessing the appropriate wires is not difficult for most vehicles. I have included a link to the running boards and tube steps listed for your 2008 GMC Acadia.

  • Difficulty of Running Board and Light Installation on a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • Installation difficulty of any part is always arbitrary and depends a lot on the individual doing the installation. If you have experience with automotive and/or wiring projects then you would find this installation difficulty to be on the easier side. The wiring aspect of it is probably more difficult than the installation of the running boards like # 27-6115-1975. The running boards come with a vehicle specific mounting kit and bolt on so it is not all that difficult. The wiring on...

  • Running Boards for 1998 Chevy Blazer 4-Door

  • Recommendation on a Set of Running Boards to Fit a 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 2WD Quad Cab
  • For you, I recommend a running board that will provide a flat foot step for better footing when entering and exiting your 2005 Dodge Ram truck. The round nerf bars have a great look when they are installed, but have a smaller surface area to place your foot on. I like the Westin Sure-Grip Running Boards, # 27-6630-1375. These Westin boards are made of sturdy, light weight aluminum and are designed to extra wide to give you a more stable stepping surface. These anodized aluminum running...

  • Where Can Westin LED Light Kit, # 27-6000 Ground To
  • The Westin LED Light Kit, # 27-6000, is designed so that when you open the doors the lights will come on. If you don't have a dome light that comes on in your vehicle these aren't going to be able to connect to the correct circuit to activate like you'll want them to as that's very important to have for the power wire of the lights.
