I did this mod as well and works great but I do have an issue. I'm hoping u guys could help me out. Lights come on when I open the door and turn off when I close it just like it should. But about 45 min later they come back on when the door is closed. I pulled the fuse to the battery saver as well and still came on. I thought it could be the latch but if it was, wouldn't the dome light be on as well? Any help is appreciated

ive notice this but have yet to figure out what exactly is causing it the best way i know to stop it is to tie your hot wire into the dome light

it gets it ground through the switch but not enough to trigger the dome light i guess

It worked. I grabbed the power from the dome light instead of the power mirror on the driver side and behind the radio on the passenger. Thanks for the help

Has anybody tried using a wire from behind the dimmer switch on the dash?
