Hey all, did not get the ambient lighting on my 09 CTS some how but I have read that the 09' still includes the plugs under the seat for them.
My only issue is I have not found anywhere on the site a reference to the plugs. Can someone post me a pic of where to look for the plugs before I order the OEM kit. Also, I've read that some people have the plugs but don't have power to them.
There is another thread in the General Discussions area that discusses this very well. I believe it states the lights are connected through the lower dash area. Do a search in that section and you should find all you need to do this upgrade.
Also update your info so we know you have a 2nd gen CTS instead of your 05 CTS.
Hammerhead100 is absolutely right: on the 2009, if you already have the front lighting, the rear kit is all you need. Unfortunately, it *is* difficult because you have to remove the console and run the wires under the carpet, then over the "hump" to the passenger side. Like everyone said, there are lots of threads that discuss the installation process.
I gave up (because I was afraid I'd break something or tear the carpet) and took mine to the dealer to be installed. The (careless?) mechanic ended up breaking the plastic piece at the base of the back of the driver's seat and had remove the whole seat to replace what he broke. Long story short, it's a neat option that I wish would have continued to be installed from the factory, but it doesn't seem worth the hassle to add it after the fact unless you really have a lot of people riding in your back seat who you want to impress.
