Re: Blue LED scuff plates for the C-HR...

Ordered some carbon fibre effect scuff plates from good old Ali Express recently & they arrived today. The set of 4 are ideal for the C-HR with both the front pair & the rear pair excellent lengths and, being pliable, they fit superbly over the small 'lip' of the door bottom. Anyway, just to jazz them up a little, I also bought a set of 6 top quality 120 mm x 20 mm'Toyota' logo vinyl stickers in light blue - to go with my Nebula blue C-HR. As the sun was shining today here on the South coast - I decided to fit them. Looks great I think... and all for the total sum of less than £20!

Hi, everyone.
I show you how to connect the moving skuff plate to the C-HR.

First, remove original skuff plate.

Many cable are covered into the rubber.

Thin pink wire is the one you should connect the plus line. It's the constant current. Be careful the electrical short circuit when you connect the wire. You can get the 12.4V voltage without IGN ON.

Using the electrotap (thick wire of 0.2sq to thin wire), connect the plus line.

Connect the minus line to the door courtesy switch line. Then, the skuff plate lights only when you open the door.
Remove the weather strip of the B pillar.

This is the door courtesy switch to detect the door opening. This switch line connect the GND (Body earth) only when the door opens.

Behind the switch, you can find the single line.

Connect the minus line to this single line.

That's it.

Then you can finally get the lightning like me!

Thanks for the guide, C-HR FAN_JAPAN. Are the plates easy enough to remove? Any tricks to know? Is this something a complete newbie could do? I just received by 2020 model and am thinking about installing the scuff plates that light up.

That’s what I’m looking at on eBay. I wonder if my dealer would make the wire connection for me.

Looks good, Walt. Did you have the logo made and stick on top or did you get them made with the logo?
