    That’s really the only position I didn’t try, I’ll give it a go again after work today @Sn4rlax . I’ll post a pic if I’m still having trouble @mlr69 Just kept bending and popping out like it would never ever fit. Can’t seem to keep the spring compressed in one hand while slipping it into place. Some foul language may have occurred lol, all these YouTube videos make it seem like the easiest thing to put in place.

Long story short, dome light isn’t working. Maybe just a bad batch, that’s what I’m hoping because I want the lights to work. Took a lot of fighting to get the spring loaded piece in place, but from the pictures you can see I finally got it in place (I think) no matter what direction I put it, wouldn’t turn on. I popped my factory bulb back in (super easy, less than 1 second) and it works fine, so that’s what has me assuming that maybe it’s a bad batch of dome light?

    Stock light works fine (with switch and door open) bulb in and out easily.

    MESO dome light won’t turn on in any fashion when plugged in, guess I need to return and buy a new one. Fingers crossed

    @MESO any input, or how do I go about a return? Thanks in advance Stew!

    thanks for the speedy response!

    My order number was 18681

    I’ve got the puddle pods too I’m gonna tackle install when I get a couple hours off baby duty! I want the dome lights to work to match the Map Lights I bought from you.

    No worries. The spring style festoon has worked thus far, but I listen to feedback and want to refine all my products. This is the new style I have came up with

    @MESO that seems like it would be much easier to install! That should work flawlessly unless it’s the actual dome light itself, hope not, fingers crossed any info ya need from me other than that order number I gave you? Do I get a new tracking number, and of course like anyone would ask, when do you think you’ll get it out in the mail? My Xmas present to myself

    Blew a fuse trying to install the first time.... fixed fuse... Mine are installed. Work great.

    lol however...


    my moonroof buttons don’t open the moonroof... instead they turn the new map and dome lights on...same with the traction control button...

    up/down ... open/close... all just turn the new lights on...

    What have I done ?

    @MESO


    Also shot you a message.

    Disconnected negative on batt, installed with red (+) wire on drivers side for the maps and dome and successfully installed on 1st try. YMMV.
    Bright even during the day, must be crazy bright at nite.

    Anyone else besides me notice that the dome/maps faintly blink when using the power door locks? Can't see it happen in the daylight, but noticeable at night. Not a big deal, just curious if I'm the only one.

    Blink on or blink off? Mine always cut off for a second when the truck is starting, that happened even before the LEDs - I believe that's normal behavior. I'm talking about when the LEDs are off and you hit a power door locks, the LED's very faintly blink on.

    same problem here, no matter how compressed it will not fit

    edit @MESO sent you a pm on the connector for a different reason, too

    edit #2 - got it to fit. Prebent the rod just slightly and it fit. Super tight.


    Love the illumination

    @MESO finally got to give it another go w/ the prototype you sent out. Much easier install, works flawlessly now, and a lot less frustration. Thank you much!

    Sorry just getting to my PM’s. Let me know if you still want a new connector!

    You got it! Every batch I learn something new and slowly tweak my products to perfection!


    This is normal when starting the truck.
    As for them blinking when you hit the door locks, this could be a byproduct of LEDS where halogens were. They are much more sensitive to power, whether it’s residual voltage or some type of back feed from another component. I wouldn’t worry too much, I’ve sold thousands of these and working fine:)

    I also received the prototype connector today and got it installed. It fits much better and was very easy to install.

    Thanks MESO for the awesome service!
