    so i installed mirrors with puddle lamps a few weeks ago, last week i swapped the passenged side bulbt for LEDs and everything worked fine. when i went to install the housing back into the mirror both sides stopped working. The driver side still has the filament bulb in it. neither side illuminates at all anymore, i tested both bulbs and they still work. According to the haynes manual the fuse is SEO 1 in the underhood bussed electrical center, i cant find a SEO 1 but i did find a SEO B1 which was not blown. i pulled the cover off the Mid Bussed Electrical center but didn't see a relay for the puddle lamps that should be there according to the haynes manual either. so where the hell do i check next?

    This may sounds crazy but I have you checked the settings on the cluster. I've had the bcm randomly change things before after anything electrical has changed on the truck.

    Check the power out of the door modules for the puddles

    ^^^^^THIS. I have had people beg me to look at their puddle lights and it turned out to be a setting in the cluster that just needed to be changed. I would double check all the cluster setting first before I do anything else.

    the only one i think would be related was "perimeter lights" and that's set to on, im not sure what it is...
    maybe i need someone with a tech2 to come investigate :sneaky:

    just wanted to update this thread, they worked this morning, so I'm assuming they're tied into the light sensor. or just blame it on OP error
