    @MESO Will the Dome and Map light listed under 3rd gen Tacoma also work on 5th gen 4Runner?

    Ordered a set for the Tacoma and would like to get it for the 4R.

    Got my new setup !

    went to install... saw the red light for the map lights working however.... it wasn’t turning off, so I pushed the little button in the corner of the housing... then it turned off... tried to re wire it again,, because I thought I had done something wrong. and then noticed my rear dome light was not working either.


    Now both front and rear will not come on...


    Blown fuse ?

    That’s the first thing I’d check. Look under the dash for DOME(7.5 IIRC)
    So the maps worked but then you went to install the dome and then all didn’t turn on?

    I had installed one MESO map light, and it worked. However it would not turn off. So from the YouTube video I saw, there’s a little black button inside the housing of the light, you push this button and it fixes the “map lights being constantly on” problem.

    After I hit this button the new light turned off.
    .. I fiddled around with the new map light wondering why I couldn’t get it back on again ... I then turned around and noticed my original stock dome light was not working now.

    Yeah the little button inside the map home is the stock “push on/off” button. Sometimes it can get pushed when changing out the maps, not a big deal. But with nothing turning on I’d look under the dash at the DOME fuse. Did you disconnect the battery Before plugging in? Also of fuse is good, unplug the dome at the black connector and flip around- test again.

    Battery was not disconnected ... and truck was running.
    I’m thinking this is where my problem is and why my fuse blew. . Totally spaced , thinking I did NOT need to disconnect anything, because it was a small interior light.

    guessing I was wrong.:bananadead:


    Thanks for the help @MESO . Will scope the fuse box when I have some free time tomorrow.


    Side note: also ordered your key fob and puddle lights. Both installed and working great ! Thanks :bananadance:

    update:

    100% blown fuse. Went back to the truck to grab something. Noticed my MESO puddle pods are no longer lighting up.


    Do I need to check any other fuses ? Or just the one listed @MESO

    @MESO Can you make a version that has both red and white? Thinking it would be pretty cool to set it up so the dome light on button/open doors turns on white, but if you push the map light in it turns on red.

    It would require some modding of the dome light circuit but I think its very doable.

    He's already got dual color version in the works.
    Doesn't have the white doors and red push (I don't think), but that is a really neat idea.

    I'm sure @MESO will get to you but I would PM him your issue with the order #. Thats what he had me do when I had an issue with mine.

    I just received my white maps and dome lights! After reading the last few pages, I’m hesitant to install them. I don’t want to blow fuses or burn out controllers! What’s the fool prof way to install these correctly the first time?

    I just struggled for over an hour trying to install my dome light from @MESO
    Finally gave up. Idk if that spring loaded piece fits into the 2019? No matter what I tried it wouldn’t fit right. Any tips/tricks to put this thing in? I can’t figure it out for the life of me, even watching YouTube videos. I’d hate to return it. The map lights work and went in perfectly. Help much appreciated!

    Post a pic of what you're dealing with. I had no issues with mine so I can't imagine where you're getting stuck.

    I just got my Maps and Dome in. I did disconnect the battery and removed the over head console all the way. The only issue I had was the wires came out of one of the maps at the solder points. I hade to resolder the wires they are super short with no room for play.

    Sit in the driver seat, fold the seat back so you stare up. Put the right side into the small hole on the metal peice while pushing the spring piece tightly. Don’t let any pressure off the spring and push upwards. There is no click, it sort of just stays in place. I did it during the night with just a flashlight for mine, took me 4 attempts to get it to stay.

    TBH, had more trouble with the Maplights cause I kept screwing up on the polarity. And yes, I remove the neg. battery when I installed.
