Routing Power Wire for Powered Taillight Converter Through Firewall


I have a wire kit for my 2020 KIA Soul and would like to know if anyone has an idea how to get the pos wire from inside the car to under the hood. Havent been able to find a place it will go through and be able to find it.

I can't recommend a specific spot but when our install crew routes a power wire, they'll typically find a grommet that's located in the driver's or passenger footwell (under the carpet) or in the firewall. In the firewall, there will be grommets that are used to route wiring harnesses between the dash and the engine compartment. Locate one of the grommets, and use a sharp knife to poke a hole in the grommet next to the wiring harness passing through the grommet. You'll want to be careful to not nick any of the wires in the harness. You'll also want to be sure of what's on the other side of the firewall so you don't unintentionally damage anything on the other side.

Once you get the wire through the grommet, whether through the floor or the firewall you'll want to use some sealant like # LT37467 to thoroughly seal the opening so moisture doesn't enter the passenger compartment.

I'll link you to a help article that will provide some guidance.
