    Re: Third brake light out...

    I bought one (brand new) in May on Ebay for about $160, plus shipping. Put it on myself in about a half hour. It was fairly simple. Just don't over tighten the nuts when installing the new one. These units seem to go out faster than they should. I suspect the slamming of the trunk has something to do with it. Speculation on my part, but I'm now careful when lowering the trunk lid.

    Same boat...looks like they are so new that the rebuilders are not touching them yet.....after hours of searching the best deal so far is: http://www.oehq.com/oeparts_25844853.htm

    If you find a better price please let me know since this is on my list.

    Just noticed I have 3 or 4 LEDS out on my third brake lamp. I'll be contacting you Chris to get one.

    OEparts now wants $229.97. Doesn't say if that includes shipping.

    Anyone have a better price???

    thanks

    I have exactly the same problem with the 2006 DTS third brake light, except for the speaker. I hope someone can help. Thank you all for this site!

    Re: Third brake light out...

    I just replaced mine on my '07 DTS for exactly the same reason...about 25% of the LEDs were burned out. I bought a new one from GMparts direct for $206. The dealer quoted me $278 for the part +labor. I was able to install it in about 45 min. You will have to remove the inner deck lid liner to access the light assembly retaining nuts. It's a very simple replacement. This light is not being rebuilt yet as they used to be only $145 from from GM Parts. Last summer GM raised the price by over $100. That being said, I'm sure that we will start to see rebuilt ones on the market soon...good luck.

    Not sure if Logan is doing these lights yet - check into www.ledfix.com .

    He used to do the older Seville/Deville 3rd brake light work.
