Installed Side Welcome Lights

Hi all - I installed the Side Welcome Lights to match the previously installed Tailgate Welcome Lights this weekend. Attached are two pictures - one with the headlights on, the other off. They are a sharp looking addition and provide adequate light beneath the vehicle when accessing via keyfob, door handle touch, or opening any door. Curiously, though, they do not respond when I’ve remote started the vehicle. It’s possible I need to adjust a setting somewhere, but I don’t think this was the case on my a Ridgeline.

At any rate, the install was fairly straightforward if you follow the directions and take your time. No vehicle damage, broken clips, or any other complications. My only additional info/tips are as follows. . .

1. You don’t need a push pin and multiple drill bits to drill through the plastic trim beneath the vehicle. It is soft enough that you can mark with a pencil and use a single drill bit big enough for the wire ties to pass through. Consequently, you may decide there’s enough stuff underneath there to zip tie to without drilling if you so chose.
2. For a neater install, pass the harness and connectors THROUGH the individual light trims/mounts.
3. The 2-pin connector behind the driver’s side dash is up pretty high, to the right of the left-most air vent.

Happy installing!

jpms95 - If they were installed by dealer at time of initial vehicle purchase, they should be replaced free of charge for 3-yr/36k-miles per TSB A20-022. Let the dealer eat the price & labor of constant replacing low quality part. Perhaps ask if they will 'leave' one of the defective units in your cargo area, so at a later date you may disassemble it and see if you can find aftermarket bulb alternative 🤔
