Instructions are on the meso web site, down loaded them last night. Also there is a tube you vid that shows it fairly well. Everything minus the 12v illumination for the switch.

See the enclosed wiring diagram above.

Connect wires to the Wiper warmer switch:
Gray - dimming ground
Green - 12V illum power

I just used a regular chassis ground, so my switch backlight does not dim.
Note that these wires are very small gauge. I used an exacto razor blade knife to carefully slice off some insulation to expose the wire and soldered to it. Be sure to insulated and strain relieve with tape or cable ties so you donít tug on them too much after installation.

I believe oldred sells a harness which converts your mirror harness to premium harness. Then you can add mirrors with puddles and turn signals.

I finally got around to installing mine, what was defective about yours? Mine donít seem to turn off if I leave it in auto mode even with the truck started.

Out of stock...

Looking forward to doing this cool mod, especially since MeSo Customs now has (in stock) the plug and play wiring harness for the 5th gen. The puddle lights however are not in stock. I asked via email when/if they would have more. Actually got an email y'day "more are in production and will be avail....soon"

Anytime Control of Mirror Puddle Lights: Use as Ditch Lights

Great write up ElectroBoy. But I took the easy route and installed the meso puddle light kit. It worked like a charm as it was all plug and play.

Also I added the reverse trigger to it so the puddles automatically turns on while backing up. If you want to give this a try. Just connect pin4 of the meso puddle light kit switch to the reverse trigger pin4 red wire in main body ecu harness.

Thanks OldRed for the trigger wire.

Thanks, thatís a great idea!
Iím looking at the back-up lights wiring diagram and how to wire it into my setup.
Iím wondering if you could check something out on your 4R for me.

When you flip the Meso switch to On, do the backup lights turn On as well as the puddle lights?

When I manually turn on the puddle lights, the reverse back lights does not turn on. Only time the back up lights turn on is when Iím actually in reverse.

I made my own anytime front - rear camera harness and I had to add bias diodes when ever i touched the reverse trigger. So both front and rear mode has a diode.

If your having that issue when manually turning on puddle lights, are you using reverse trigger ? If so the diode may also be needed.

The diagram below is for the CTH anytime camera switch when used with the T9. But Iím showing this as a diode example.

I had the same idea after doing the MESO puddle lights upgrade a while ago. I used a AOB switch with a relay to be able to manually turn on\off the puddle lights with ignition on. I was able to get a wiring diagram of the puddle lights from a member here, and successfully tapped into the system. Works great

I havenít implemented a reverse trigger yet. But yeah, thatís what I was thinking, that Iíd need to add a forward biased diode from the MB ECU harness 2F pin 4 (Backup lights +12V) to the Meso switch wire that powers the puddle lights. That would block any puddle light operation from turning on the reverse lights.

But with this circuit whenever in reverse there would be +12V going to the MB ECU illumination output F10 pin 4 (MILE). This is what supplies power to the puddle lights. Iím not sure if that output driver would be OK with that when itís not active. Might be better to add another diode in that line, similar to your diode ORing scheme for the camera control.

Thanks for the info, another project for me.

Depends on where your getting 12v to power. During reverse trigger on backup should be okay with no diode. your anytime puddle switch power is different than reverse so your okay Anytime Control of Mirror Puddle Lights: Use as Ditch Lights

I would wire it first to see if the back up lights only comes on during reverse only, then your good.
