    CTS sedan owners who live abroad! HELP US blokes with euro export rear tail lamps

    Attention: Germany or South Africa CTS owners! Maybe this thread could help a few US CTS enthusiast wanting to add these clear rear export tail lamps. The wiring pinout is slightly different between the US CTS vs. abroad. They will work but aren't simply plug and play.

    Could someone living in UAE or outside the US that have these clear rear tail lamps for a 2008 to 2014 CTS show us a close up pic of the rear tail lamp wiring harness pinout? Maybe a post a wiring diagram or schematic? OR anyone who has done this mod could assist in figuring this out would greatly be appreciated.


    2011 CTS-V, Recaro high performance seats, ultra view sunroof, crystal red tint coat, midnight sapele wood trim pkg, sueded steering wheel & shifter.

    Do you have a UK spec 2008+ CTS with these tail lamps? If not what do you have?
    The UK UAE supposedly have a different Euro / export rear tail lamps and are rewired differently to meet EURO specifications. The blue connector shown in pic plugs into the back of the rear tail light. You would need to access and remove the rear tail lamp. Easiest access would be the passenger side where the car battery is located in the trunk. I would like pics of the back of that connector to show which color wires go into that connector to see if it's different than the US version.

    Wow that looks absolutely horrible, that fad went out of style 8 years ago. Why would you put that trash on your car?

    Wrong! These are factory GM export tail lamps.

    Please don't trash this thread just because you don't like it. It wasn't posted for your interpretation!
