You can do it without power doors, but with them you don't have to run the power wire through your door loom. Its just more self contained with power doors. And you can only do this for the drivers side because that is the only side that has constant power.

I did mine but FYI we weren't thinking and in plugged the wires from the senser and tapped into the wrong wire because we were getting door closed readings instead of door open. Easy fix but we just weren't thinking lol.

When you open one door do both sides puddle lights come on or only the side where the door is open?
