Cartrimhome.com dome LED smoke and fire

LED panels for dome light that this site sells will short and smoke at best or catch on fire at worst. I lucked out (I guess) because my shorted and melted the heck out the dome light fixture and didn't burn my ride to the ground. I replaced the whole dome light and put single LED bulb in there instead of CH panel after that. I think the problem was spring adapter connector but either way everything was toast and didn't trigger the fuse which tells me issue wasn't just short at posts but rather internal issue with LED Panel circuitry. Close call and I hope to prevent anyone from fire by removing or not ordering those dangerous panels.

There is literally nothing I would buy from that website.

If you want the panel replacements for the lights spend the money to get the Arc light led.

Install seems pretty basic on the arc light, minus having to drill a couple small holes? I donít have one but Iíve been considering getting one so now youíve got me wondering how itís not simple or easy to mess up?

Also, I donít see the map lights on Mesoís site at all? Just the rear dome light for the 5th Gen

Sorry to hear. I haven't had issues with their sequential turn signal mirror lights but I probably just jinxed myself.
