Any solutions to this? I just bought a 2012 with basic power/heated mirrors and purchased a 2010 set of trailer towing mirrors (flip out) that have the puddle lamps and marker lamps. Before I throw them on just want to know what to expect...

I'm asking this, as I don't know the answer....

Can you isolate the wires that control the turn signals in the mirror? Can you then run a wire from your turn signals (directly to the lights themselves at one of the 4 corners of the vehicle) and tie in the two together?

If Dodge were giving me the run around on something like this, it's the route I would go in order to correct what should've been an easy fix.

I still have a hard time believing that it's not possible for the dealership to get 'em working with very little effort on their part.

Its not hat complicated to make them work if you have some basic wiring skills, run a wire from the correct source to the mirror, interior lamp feed to the puddle lamps and a jumper to the turn signals from the mirror feed... just a nuisance on a brand new truck! I will give it a go soon, just about time to hook up the trailer... I can get the pin diagrams for the mirrors...

Probally the same wire harness connector but the new mirror has 2 extra pins that the truck harness does not have. Seems stupid not to have all the wires for that option even if not equipped with those type mirrors.

I read a tech bulletin about these mirrors and they referred to a separate module for them... could be why just plugging them in won't work. I'm gonna keep digging!

Any further updates on this? I just saw several Dodge Rams at the Auto Show with the signal/puddle light mirrors and wanted to upgrade mine. I was thinking of just isolating the wires and hard wiring the lights it all like some people suggested, but does anyone have a confirmed install via this method?

Thanks

this really is baffling. I have a 2009 ram QC 1500 Big Horn with standard mirrors, no center console, Hemi, 20s ect. I have a buddy that also has a 2009 ram QC big Horn, but he has the Mirrors with puddle lights, center console and hemi. there are minor things that are different that i have and he doesnt and vise versa. Its just crazy that the trucks are almost the same, BUt they would have different harnesses in them for something as simple as the mirrors?
