I have a 2017 Ram 1500 . I recently installed new towing mirrors from an E-bay seller. Fit was great and I plugged in both pigtails to their respective sockets. I had the stock mirrors without puddle lights, but, the new tow mirrors have that option. How can I activate the puddle light option, or is that yet another Dealership $500.00 job.

I think the dealer has to flash your truck with the code for the puddle lights. Just another thing ram did with a poor design. The dealers get to milk more money out of their customers for something that should just work.

You can probably find a dealer to flash it for free, and definitely for less than $500.

Most vehicles these days use common wiring harnesses so some truck with less options will still have connectors for options they don't have. Having to program the truck to send signals to newly installed options isn't a Ram specific thing
