    None... Gotta get on that
    I thought the same until I redid it and I went under the passenger side and then once on the driver's side went straight up instead of under.

    Some people have the gap, some others do not.
    On my Powerfolding mirrors, I had the gap too, but after moving around the LED mounting screws, I was able to get it to sit flush.

    I did the opposite, I went it under the carpet for the driver's side, then straight for the passenger side.

    Did not want to risk the cable dropping when I am drivIng.

    Fair. Mine is up over the steering column zip ties to some other wires so no worry of it falling.

    Any chance the puddle switch will be available before winter kicks in? I’m anxious to see how they work in the New England winters:D

    I had to mold a new front button switch. This takes a little time, but we are very close to final sample and production.

    My driver side puddle light went out. I'll need to do some troubleshooting this weekend and make sure I have everything still connected right.

    I think there were some others where that happened. Any suggestions of what to look for?

    My guess is a connection. I can't see all the leds going out at once. Start with the easiest which might be the A pillar. ? Switch the connection right to left and see what happens. :notsure:

    Is there a wire I could tap into to get my switch pro to turn these on?

    Easiest is checking power at the pod first. Then I would check power at the pillar going to that side.

    Thanks guys. I figured I should get out the volt meter. It very well could be a connection. All the other interior lights work, as well as my passenger puddle, when I open the door.
