    Not sure what to look for on Amazon do you have a link or search word?

    Is this it?

    As long as the pattern is the same should be okay. I got two 12 (3X4) SMD for the front and two 48 SMD for the rear. If you do some more digging you should find them in two packs instead of buying 4. I’m just taking a chance here but the ones I ordered seem to be the same. Will know for sure when they arrive, and for 20$ shipped for all 4 I’ll be okay if they don’t work at all. The rears will require some soldering to join the wiring from the two panels to one adapter for the dome light. If you look at your MESO rear dome you’ll see how to solder the two panels together.

    These appear to be 36 SMD so no they definitely wouldn’t work. Need 48 for the rear and 12 for the front.

    Hey that piggyback definitely works too! Cool to see someone else mod their mod as well lol.

    After a year the red is kinda pain in the ass, it’s hard to find things when my whole interior is dark colours; black on brown.

    So I figured out what happened. The fuse did blow because of the dome light. I have a sunroof in my tacoma, so the dome light is towards the back of the cab and not the middle. The fake bulb that the MESO light comes with doesn't fit in this style dome contact. I remembered it being awkward during the install and having to bend up in order to fit. This must have shifted and contacted metal causing the fuse to blow.

    To be clear...the dome housing is the same size, so the actual light itself fits....just the contact is much smaller where the typical bulb would go.

    Now for the real question, is there an option to purchase a MESO dome light with a smaller fake bulb or am I just going to have to modify it?

    Again this may have already been mentioned, but I don't want to read through this 306 page thread to find out. @MESO might be good to know, since I'm not sure how many taco's on here have the sunroof.

    By fake dome light, do you mean the festoon adapter?

    The lady wants me to mount my extra SMDs in her car, I just need to figure out if it is plug and play and if I can hide them under the factory diffusers. Once she sat in the truck she freaked when she saw how bright the interior was.

    Yes, the festoon adapter was too large. I just removed the spring and then it fit perfectly.

    Go back to post #6091 and there is a Youtube video that has some troubleshooting tips for the lights.

    Went back and read through a few other forums. Apparently this is a very common issue, not just with MESO interior lights, but other aftermarket LED's. When your interior light 7.5A fuse blows, it doesn't fully protect the circuit (as it is a slow blowing fuse). Doesn't sound like there is a clear smoking gun solution for this, but some have had to replace the body ECU ~$650.

    Really wish I would have read up on this before purchasing!

    They aren’t even in stock I thought.

    Everyone’s waiting on some new ones.
