thats how they have to be wired. usually people go under / behind the glovebox because there is less wire interference there. drop it down by where the floor speakers are, and under the door sill all the way back to the rear seat, then lift that out and put it through where the arm rest is.

there are some DIY's floating around the site. a search could prove useful.

to the forum Tyler,

Ecianice is about right except going through the arm rest. I continued to run them along the passenger side, pulled the rear seat out and went through the bottom portion of the rear seat on that side. If there isnt a hole to run that through, make your own 1" or so hole in it. Anywhere you run wires through steel, make sure to protect the wiring by using loom and/or use a pinch welt that slides over the exposed, sharp steel. Good luck...
