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

    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 & LED conversion

    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.

    re: 3rd Brake Light not working & LED conversion

    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.

    Re: 3rd brake Light LED Conversion

    not to be an @@@ but to make an offer like you ad does shouldn't you be a paid vendor before offering services? offering a price for a core sounds like you plan to continue to make and sell others that do similar like short shifters paid to be vendors prior to offering and performing the services.

    Re: 3rd brake Light LED Conversion

    Sorry I dont know. Would it be different if I didnt have the core charges and just had them out right to sell? I'm just a fellow V member that did the mod. I just do this on the side and dont own a business. I got these lights at a great price and decided to mod them because they are all broken. My apologies if I was suppose to be a registered vendor but I thought those were just for companies.

    MODS please chime in. I dont want to breaking the rules.

    thanks
