When my interior lights are in the 'off' position, the entry lights don't come on. In the 'auto' position, the entry lights come on as they're supposed to. Same, on the R and CLK.

Guys, thanks for trying to help.

I don't think it is the bulb because neither side works. I've went into the command system and made sure the outside lighting was selected, at least I think I did it right. The lights at the bottoms of the doors come on when you open a door, the floor lights also come on. The only thing that doesn't come on is the two puddle lights at the bottom of the out side mirrors.

If any one has an idea to make those light come on I would surely like to hear it.

Tony

And you tried this when it was dark outside? They only light up when it is dark.

Yes, I know. I taped over the light sensor so the driving lights come on when the switch is placed in the auto position. But no puddle lights when I unlock the car.

I have the same problem and already make sure I turn on the lights on my command. I try it at night also and not lights up.
any idea? may be there is a fuse somewhere?

Does someone make brighter LED bulbs to replace the dim puddle lights?

Konigstiger, Just try it last night and it works! I am going to swap the side mirror to 2011-2013 and put a pair of 194 LED light bulb before install on the car!

Thanks a lot for help.
