So I have been running the replacement bulbs off of Amazon for about 6 months. The other day all my interior dome/map/door lights stopped working. Checked the fuse today and it was blown. I inserted another fuse and it blew also. So, there is a short somewhere. I assume it is one of the bulbs.

Is there an easy way to identify a bad LED. Just trying to save a little of the trial and error method. TIA!

1) a multimeter. there are dozens of YouTube videos

2) use a 9v battery - might need a small piece of wire - I do this before putting a LED in any slots in my car. the door lights in particular aren't fused and there are some sad stories of bad LEDs leading to expensive repairs.

Are there any alternatives for the map light especially? I screwed mine up a little when I was putting in a LED bulb so looking to replace but really can't stomach $140 for one interior light.

There was a member on here warning against the CTH interior lights saying that his burned and almost caught his car on fire, fyi

I emailed Meso today about the 4R map lights and the rear hatch lights. My dome lights arrived while I was out of town and they look great.

I snagged the bi-color Meso dome light last week and it looks great. I have the arc light panels in the rear hatch but would jump at the Meso map light set up if I could.

I did the same, so I emailed and they responded within a few hours. Map lights have no ETA, they're stuck in transit somewhere. They claimed that there is no official design for the hatch lights, they've toyed with a design but nothing was ever produced.

Thanks for the update. The ArcLight red/white works well in the hatch, and I have the dome, so boy it would be great to get the map - first one that notices them in please post here!
