    $250. Includes shipping back to you. We need the lamp for about 1 1/2 days.

    No tax on Internet sales. 1 year warranty.

    Talked with Logan yesterday. Cannot get circuit boards for CTS LED replacement lights.

    He cannot do upgrade anymore. Anyone have any other thoughts?

    Re: 3rd Brake Light not working

    I am the original starter of this thread, and the 3rd brake light that I had replaced 2 years ago has AGAIN gone out. $700 replacement is needed.

    Cadillac told me there is only 1 year warranty on the part. They also told me that this is not a common issue... but why has my light gone out twice now?

    This is a serious problem and a safety hazard, how is everyone else dealing with this issue, are you just buying a new lamp every 2 years for $700? I don't get it.

    Why hasn't Cadillac fixed this? Do I have to notify the Attorney General about this safety issue to get my lamp fixed correctly without charge? Maybe a lawsuit is appropriate for this situation?

    Mine went out and I did the LED conversion myself. Very easy mod and it only cost me $25

    Let me know what you think.

    guys this is a very simple LED fix for these... i did mine last year, my only problem was caused by the glue i used...so DO NOT use goop... use RTV silicone.
