    DTS 2006 opera lights help!!

    My husbands pride and joy opera lights worked 1 time when we purchased the car. This is one of his favorite options with this car, How do I replace these lights and could be something else besides them just being burnt out? if it is something else what and how do I find this?

    Any help will be so appreciated, thanks

    It is the lights on the sail panel of the top... to the rear of the rear door.
    Older Fleetwood Broughams had them.
    I have seen them on a few 2006 to 2011 when they have a custom top added to it.

    Like on this car? These tops are made by E&G Classics. They are not Cadillac original parts. You will need to contact your dealer to find out where the nearest E&G classic shop is.

    Oh,


    I've never been a fan of those rag like things on the DTS, but that's just me.

    The most I even did to modify my DTS was buying the Official GM Chrome Grille. Which I Love looking at every morning and time I see it

    When I get my top put on my DTS I am getting those lights put on. As long as the switch to turn them on is factory looking I am getting that.

    No switch required. The lights come on with the exterior lights. They just tap into the parking light circuit.

    :
    That gold one is a vinyl top, not canvas. E&G makes several different styles. Full tops, half or quarter tops. Cloth or vinyl. Agreed that the fake canvas ones seem abit much. But I do miss the full vinyl tops that used to be available on the Fleetwoods.

    I don't like the half tops. I plan to get a black full vinyl with chrome Cadillac emblems on the rear pillar. And I will definitely inquire about opera lights and have those put on if the E&G in Maryland offers them for a reasonable price. I just wish they weren't 2 hours away.

    Well I can always ask. I've never seen any DTS with opera lights so maybe mine will be the first in my area with a full top.
