Side Mirror Puddle/Courtesy Lights

I think the side mirrors that have the puddle/courtesy lights that light up when unlocking the vehicle only comes on the Overland and Summit models.

They used to always work but I noticed today that they are not coming on anymore. Night or day doesn't make any difference. I don't think I changed any settings. Anyone else have the same problem?

Man you just seem to be all over the place with issues. Sucks to hear because your Jeep is very nice.

Thanks. Guess I was just venting. I've calmed down today. Compared to some who have the 8.4 locking up and pano roof leaking, the problems with mine are minor. But I guess a trip to the dealer is coming up.

Re: Side Mirror Puddle/Courtesy Lights

Interesting. Now that you mention it, I haven't seen my puddle lights come on recently, although I haven't really payed attention either. I remember seeing them after I took delivery. I'll have to go check it out later. I have a '14 Overland.

Re: Side Mirror Puddle/Courtesy Lights

Updating my post above ^

I was out last night in the dark and sure enough they came on. First time I've really paid attention to them and, man, they illuminate well! The whole ground underneath gets lit up. iPhone 5 pics show them in action a little bit here:





Definitely a nice-to-have thing!

Re: Side Mirror Puddle/Courtesy Lights

Last night and today, they are now working. Go figure. Gremlins, I guess. Though it doesn't give me much faith in the vehicle. Now all I need the gremlins to do is make my liftgate open with 2X on the fob.

Anybody know if the puddle lights only come on if it is dark? I noticed mine are not working today. I had done the battery cable disconnect for the transmission rough shifting fix a couple days ago.

I have discovered that the puddle lights only come on when the door is unlocked by pressing the unlock button on the key fob.

That must be it. Seems to be working now.

Re: Side Mirror Puddle/Courtesy Lights

When mine is parked, but unlocked, and keyfob left upstairs, as soon as I touch the door handle, the puddle lights come on. Day or night doesn't matter.

Re: Side Mirror Puddle/Courtesy Lights

you know that I was looking in the fuse box. (man there's a bunch of them) but only about half of them were actually pushed in ALL the way. I was pressing each one of them down and many you could feel snap into place. Wonder of it could be causing all the intermittent issues we seem to have?

I take that back. They aren't working again using key fob to unlock or door handle.

Update. It appears the lights do not work if the mirrors are folded. Can anybody confirm?

I checked my fuses. Quite a few clicked with just a slight push. Especially all the 30 amp ones that are pink.
