    @robb1887 Take a pic of IN1 wires. See if they match...

    You stated everything goes back to "normal" when the T harness is removed.
    And that the Puddles work, they just don't turn off.
    The Dimming OFF is wire 11 (ILE)
    Do you have the colored wires harness or the ALL BLACK?
    There might be a wiring issue with the IN1 T harness, as in other wires loose, not just the wires to the Puddles.

    On mobile so can't look at photos and diagram easily. These are the photos I had from previously messing with it.

    I'll compare when I get home and it back apart this weekend.

    I've had the same issue with both the ALL black and Color taps T-harness.

    Puddles come on and as far as I can tell do not turn off. My assumption is they should act the same as the interior dome lights.

    Haven't had a chance with the splitter wiring disconnected T-harness in checks

    Have you bypassed the Y splitter and plugged each side directly into the T harness to see how it behaves? You may have said it but I've gotten lost in the post. If each side stays on which I'm assuming it would then it has to be in the T harness... maybe? Unless there is just something off with the factory wiring but you figure you would have a lighting issue somewhere else also. I guess compare every color to every pin location. This is a bitch of a job... sorry man.

    Does the provided T-Harness you have include a wire in ALL cavities? I see in your pictures that there is an additional wire in cavity #10, next to the Yellow (ILE_DIMMING #11) that later models (at least the references I have) do not have.

    Not yet. Its on the to-do list for this weekends troubleshooting

    95% sure all pins have passthrough wiring. I didnt have any luck trying to locate a 2020 wiring schematic. I wonder if @Jeff Lange could help with the wiring for this plug on a 2020 Limited?

    @robb1887 We're keeping on eye on this too and will replace anything that is wrong on the kit. Let us know as soon as you confirm what the issue is.

    Would you confirm that the T-harness has wires on all slots?

    So the Y (JST) is a dual wire crimp coming from both sides of the IN1?

    The split is coming from the female side of the plug only, which looks like the IN1 side like you have labeled. They are crimped into the pins together with the matching pass through wires.

    Absolutely LOVEEEE the puddle lights. Just installed Them This morning. Pretty straight forward. Hardest part was pulling the wire through the grommet. Since I was doing that I did the chrome delete and installed the ect pro shift knob so I can use that button for the puddle lights.

    Does anyone know how to make the puddles work with DSIM harness? I have the DSIM splitter. I wired the DSIM harness to a relay, a switch to turn on set of rock lights. I would like the switch to work with the puddles as well.

    I received mine yesterday. After fast S&H. I had them installed. With the assistance of a friend that has the patience. The rubber boots do nothing for my self a steam.

    look really good and practical at night. Not so much in the day though...;)

    Yes i have that. Connect to a set of rock lights, a relay and a CH4x4 switch. I installed the puddles. It works as intended but not coming on with the switch.
