2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Appearance Mods Discussion, Led or "neon" Brake light.. in Cadillac CTS-V Series Forum - 2004 - 2007; Are the high-mount brake lights on the CTSv LED like the Cadillac's of past or are they glowing, neon-like?...
The CTS has an led brake light that illuminates .5 seconds faster than other brake lights (or something) according to the autoshow babe the year the car was introduced. I doubt they have changed this for the V.
The built-in third brake light (as they are sometimes called) on all Cadillacs are an assembly of LEDs. As far as I know, there is not now nor has there ever been a Neon brake light installed by the manufacturer on any automobile.
flyboy ...can you post pictures of your install , i bought some from ledtrinics a few days ago ....cant wait to see how well these light up ...last go around with LEDS did turn out so great ...but things hopefulyl changed over 5 years
Not Neon exactly.. I have seen what I thought were neon-like.. Like one large filament bulb on some cars.. I was following a regular CTS and thought it looked like the Escalade 3rd light.. I have the strip on my STS and it seemed to be different.. Thanks..
As soon as i win a CTS tail light on Ebay im going to try to make an LED setup similar to the STS setup.. using LED arrays used on semi trucks and trailers not a bulb replacment,,,, I wasnt happy with the LED bulbs i tried.
I'll try to get pictures soon......the difference is most noticeable at night, of course. One thing, if you install the amber LED's for the turn signals....you'll need their ballast (resistor) for just under six bucks....otherwise they blink way too fast. (There is no natural resistance with the LED's).
