    Got my Meso Customs package in the mail yesterday and installed both the white map lights and the Gashole. First touches for my Tacoma. Was pretty excited walking out to my truck and seeing how bright the front seating area was when getting in. Just waiting on the white domes and the upcoming folding key fob for us SR owners. Ordered the red dome as that was all that was available for now. I constantly drive my step daughters young friends around and don't want some officer thinking I'm running some kind of trafficking ring with red domes in the cab LOL! Thanks for the great products MESO!

    Any chance making blue domes? Red just doesnt give me the visibility for some reason. Will for sure get map white.

    Ironically, I tried a blue LED bulb in the ticket light in my crown vic and it lasted all of 30 seconds before I went to red (it's a two switch model with one switch for a white bulb and the other for a red bulb). The blue was very disconcerting to be honest and it was just as hard to see outside of the car with it on compared to the red. At least the white was bright af lol.

    yeah I guess everyone’s eyes are different. I would never use them as maps. I have a blue LED in my dome now and it’s good, just not bright enough.

    Just checked and the red dome is available on his website. I just got them yesterday in the mail. Installing it in a few minutes although I changed them out to white SMD lights going to piggyback the two separate panels and use one festoon adapter. I have about 10 of the white SMD 48 LED panels and popped them in to the MESO housing. Had them when I changed out the old festoon bulbs in the Yaris dome light. Going to use the others in the Buick dome light. Thinking of changing out the map lights in the Verano and see if they will fit under the diffusers. The red I am setting aside just in case.

    I'm sure this has probably already been discussed on here, but do these require an upgraded fuse?

    I've had my MESO map and dome lights installed for about 3 weeks now. I noticed this morning when I opened the doors that none of them came on. I proceeded with trying to manually turn them on and got nothing....and yes I messed with the interior light rocker switch (Off/Door Open/On).

    I haven't looked into wiring yet, but with none of them working, the only thing I could think of is a fuse blew.

    Anybody else had this problem?

    Theoretically these should not require a larger fuse. LEDs take up much less wattage compared to the stock incandescent bulbs, so even with all those LEDs together it should be fine. If they did require a larger fuse it would have blown it right away and not after the three weeks.

    The only thing I can think of for you to check is to see if the connectors fell out of the sockets.

    If it's not that, we might need to get @MESO in on this.

    Thanks @CttAznRanger

    I agree with everything you said. I wouldn't have thought a fuse would be an issue at all, but it was the only thing that made sense for all of them to not be working. It definitely has to be wired in parallel and not series....so if one light goes out they don't all go out.

    I can troubleshoot a little more after work.

    Check out this video, should start at the right time to describe what I believe might be your issue.

    They are now injection molded, no longer 3D printed.

    You can find just the panels on Amazon, I just ordered a set of white to replace the reds I’ve been running for about a year.

    If you have one going out email him with your order number and he will likely take care of you. Thats what I did when I had an issue with my maps and he sent me brand new boards to install.

    More than I can afford
    Any update on if/when 2nd gen domes will be available?

    Have the map lights already, feel the need to "get both".
