Driving me crazy!

So I'm replacing burnt out bulbs. Now I can't see how to do the running light in the mirror. Also after I did the dome light it is now flashing when I'm driving. It does fine other wise. Do you have any advice on this. I'm at a loss.

There is a little tab on the mirror on the inside that you pop to get the mirror lenses out. As for the interior dome light flashing. Im not sure. Is it flashing even when the dome light is turned off?

No only when the truck is on. If its off it works fine. I'm so confused.

I just pulled the bulb out. It was so annoying. I can't find any reason for it to do this.

As for the mirror I can't seem to find it. Of course when someone comes to help and shows me. I will then feel stupid for not seeing it.

My Dome light would flash also when turned on. It was not making a solid enough connection. I would have it working great until I pushed the dome housing back in. Just tightened it down real good and pounded on it a little bit

As above, for the mirror running lights turn your mirrors all the way in and you will see a little silver tab. Push that with a screwdriver and the running light housing pops right out.

on the mirror, you must adjust the mirror all the way to the inside.. that will cause a gap on the outside edge between mirror and housing... look in there and u will see the off white tab to push on to release the lens...

Not sure if this is it, but on my ranger, randomly my dome light would stay on and it kept saying door ajar. I would slam my doors and still kept saying ajar. I read if you spray Lithium grease into the door latch it would stop. Sure enough it stopped. So I am wondering if it is enough to make the light go on and off, but not the door ajar warning light to light up. Try spraying some lithium grease into your door latches. If anything else, you wont need to do that for a while.
