    It sounds like it is definitely "A" problem. You seem to have struggled with the install.

    My best suggestion is to begin trouble shooting by first revert back to stock. Just disconnect battery, pull the A pillar remove the T-harness, plug the original connectors back together, reconnect the battery and see if everything works properly. IF not diagnose and fix the problem there.

    Then.... disconnect batt, reconnect T harness with only 1 puddle pod, reconnect batt, test if all is good try the other, if all works you are fixed. IF not try the one that worked again, then only the one that did not. If one is failed follow the wiring to try to find a fault. If any part is failed after it all works in stock config contact Meso let him know your order #, and what you have done to diagnose, and what you have found. He can help replace or diagnose from there.

    Sometimes we find odd conditions due to a single crossed, grounded or pinched wire. Gotta start by eliminating all the changes that caused the issue and work from there again.

    Please read all of the post above yours. I said: If all did not work properly after reverting back to stock that you would have to diagnose and fix that before advancing further.

    It sounds like there is another problem with your truck. You may have forgotten to disconnect the battery before adding or changing electrical components and caused a problem. Human error. Try disconnecting the battery for 10+ minutes, while the clock ticks... check fuses, switches, etc. Call your dealer and schedule an appointment if you can not find that issue.

    AFTER your truck works correctly in stock then reconnect/install the pods. When I installed mine I disconnected the battery and added 1 part then reconnected and tested everything before repeating with the next piece. Yes I am over cautious. I however have pods and lights that all work flawlessly.

    Best of luck!!

    @MESO Would you happen to have an extra set of the plastic housings laying around? I got a little experiment I would like to try out with them, and it requires punching a hole through the bottom of them near the puddle lights.
