looking to install puddle lights under my mirrors for a lighted entry to my vehicle for night time... can this be done? can it be wired. i want to mount it under the mirror so that when i unlock my vehicle they turn on...

Re: puddle light
I installed underglow entry lights on mine. I tapped into the driver footwell interior light. You could do the same and run a wire through the door..

Re: puddle light
could you submit a picture... i have an idea in my head... i want to like mount it into the actual mirror like drill a hole into the mirror and make it fit flush with the surface. like a factory car would have you know?

Re: puddle light
Here's a pic of the lights.. they run the length of the rocker

should be plenty of space in the mirror to put a flush mount led.. people have put pinhole cameras there

Re: puddle light
if you tap into the footwell interior light thats exactly what they will do.. on when door opens/unlock..fade away upon lock and door closing

Hi, I have seen puddle lights showing car brand pictures for sale on UK Ebay, and noticed since range rover evoque start showing a picture in there puddle lights, the mini is adopting it as well, and it will probably grow through other manufacturers.

Re: puddle light
The 2014 Cherokee has puddle lamps that I am considering trying to apply to my 2011 Grand Cherokee. I too am interested in what Ronsse610 wants to do, under the mirror, not a light strip. There is actually a small panel on the underside which could be replaced with a light.

I have already installed the illuminated door sills so know how to hook up to the interior lighting system. Just need to find the appropriate hardware.

The 2014 Grand Cherokee has puddle lights on the underside of the mirror. This is not available as an accessory from Mopar [yet].
