    LED Rear lights

    I know a few of you have these fitted and was hoping one of you would have the time to video the lights on and the various functions I.E turn signal, brakes etc.

    I'm looking at the red/clear stock looking ones but I believe they all function the same.

    Thanks guys.

    Which model of escalade do you have I have the base model and have led taillights and they work great
    I also have a few pics and a video of how they look if you want me to email them to you
    Mine is the clear lens version with red LEDs

    Re: LED Rear lights

    Hi all, I'm new here. Cadillac man, would you be kind enough to e-mail me the video? I'm considering going LED and was wondering if you had any problems with a fast blink after you switched? I've read that adding a resistor solves the problem. Ericoverlie@gmail.com

    Email sent the resistor is only needed if you use led bulbs(which I will be using for the front blinkers)

    05 Escalade
    Hi I have the led tail light but the brake light is not working on the passenger side. All the other lights (turn signal/running) work but not the brake light...where can I start looking & if a replacement is necessary can I replace just the bulb or the whole taillight?

    Could be connections or bad taillight
    Try a regular bulb in each socket and see if it works if yes then the problem is in the taillight if no then the problem is in the truck

    Re: LED Rear lights

    I gotta chime in too, which LED tails do you have cadillac man? I have the CG ones and i went and hooked em all up, plugged everything in on the d/s. no illumination on that d/s but stock stuff stayed lit on the p/s. so i swapped in the p/s also and my fuses both blew. Switched em back to stock and the p/s still keeps blowing. I tried flipping connections before the fuses went and all cuz i know LED's can use that, not sure about these ones but i tried anyway. Any thoughts?

    Ouch that sucks I will look and see if I can find out the brand mine is and post the link for you as it sounds like you have a bad set

    If you can post a pic of them and how they hook up as mine uses the factory lamp sockets and is plug and play

    Edit mine are also the cg ones in clear with red LEDs and are plug and play

    Re: LED Rear lights

    sorry to thread jack, though it is an old thread. i think ours might be the same, i saw you reply in another LED where someone swapped to the same as mine.

    I attached them exactly how CG's website says, remove old housings, pull bulbs. plug new connectors into sockets making sure the green wires go to green and black to black, put it all back together and then re installed the housing. I had no illumination, unfortunately i dont have my volt meter or my test light so i cant check the power going in just in case but i know they drew power at one point since it blew both fuses. unfortunately it was too much power. After i did that i flipped all the wires and no luck again. left them installed the original way with the green to green, black to black. i put them back in for the day in the event CG returns my call.

    Sounds like the gray box is bad or the circuit board inside the taillights is bad as they are plug and play and shouldn't blow any of the fuses in the truck
    Which fuse did that blow as that indicates a short in the circuit as the fuse protects the wiring from burning up in cases like this

    I know mine has three plugs one for tail and turn one for tail and brake and another for the peanut marker light socket
