    Why did your noico take long? Did you do the exterior or the interior?

    Inside the doors. I’ve never done it before and am a bit OCD, so measuring inside, then cutting the material to size and installing it all through the speaker opening was tricky for me. It was hot here today so when I tried to pull the vapor barrier it was a mess so I did it all through the speaker opening. Still got almost the entire door covered. Only a few small cuts on my knuckles, pretty happy about that.

    I did mine through the vapor barrier. Pretty annoying to pull, but with a sharp blade isn't too bad. I probably did 60% of the door skin, it was annoying as hell. Idk how u did it through the door speaker haha.

    I just got rid of the vapor barrier and did door skin and inner door with dynamat and then put dynaliner on inner panel to replace plastic barrier. But I had plenty on hand so pulled entire interior and just double lined it ALL. Talk about OCD. :annoyed:

    Installed puddle lights today. Everything went well. Was driving tonight, and after about 10 mins, the tpms started flashing. AC stopped working, and none of the window switches work on any of the doors. Wouldn't think i would of blown multiple fuses? Puddle lights are working though. And everything was good until i went on a drive. Too late now to check all the fuses. Will troubleshoot tomorrow. Thought i would ask if anyone else has had this happen after the install. Took the kick panels off the drivers side. And everything appears tight. Which i only disconnected the harnesses going into the door.

    Thank you in advance.

    Maybe it has to do with having disconnecting the battery too long, I recall reading on here where a guy had his AC quit for awhile after battery disconnects.

    That’s a new one. I haven’t heard of that but I’ll look around and see if I find anything.

    Could be. It worked when i first started driving. And the windows did also. Then the tpms light started flashing. windows stopped working. Ac light went off. Blower still works. but appears it is stuck in defros . Only blows to the dash. even though i didn't have it set to that when it went out. Disconnected the t harness in the a pilla . No change. Maybe i pinched a harness somehow. Will check fuses and relays tomorrow

    Gotcha, maybe you don't have one of the plugs pushed completely back together down behind the kick panels.

    I double checked those to make sure. And that would only affect the drivers door. Going to check all fuses tomorrow morning. I'm on the east coast. And my dmm is at work. Thank you everyone for the suggestions. Meso also is working with me. Probably something i did. But i was very careful and can't think of anything i did that would of caused this. I did also install the morimoto xb led headlights yesterday. But no problems until after this install today. And all was good until 10 mins into my drive tonight.

    The puddle light's look awesome. plenty of light. Even the neighborhood wildlife were checking them out. Thanks again for the help to determine my problem. Will be checking fuses tomorrow. 20190615_205612.jpg 20190615_205558.jpg 20190615_205542.jpg 20190615_205524.jpg 20190615_220309.jpg 20190615_220319.jpg 20190615_220329.jpg

    Was a long day today installing the puddle lights along with front and rear speakers and sound deadening. The puddle lights went in smoothly, I was worried about feeding the harness through the rubber boot but it was pretty easy. I used a clothes hanger wire and fed it through, afterwards I electrical taped the harness to the clothes hanger and pulled it through. I didnt have any harness shortage issues, ran mine under the carpet and had some slack left. These lights are so ridiculously bright in person pictures dont them justice. Props @MESO for another great product. those that are skeptical on upgrading the speakers and tweeters do it. Day and night difference. Just look at the magnet size difference.20190615_122722.jpg

    I think I had these same symptoms which were the result of a blown fuse. A 7.5a ECU-G2 under the dash.

    I’m a little confused why everyone is talking about speakers. Isn’t this thread about the MESO puddle lights?

    Just a good time to upgrade since you already have the doors apart to do the lights.
