: How to convert your escalade to LED!

Hey Guys,

With all the LED talk going on here lately, i've decided to do a thread on converting your Escalade to LED.

Fist off, let me just say i consider myself an 'Amateur expert' on automotive lighting. I've converted 4 cars to LED, including my Escalade.

All the LED bulbs the escalade requires are available from this website:

www.superbrightleds.com

Below you will find the amount of bulbs and the direct link to the specs and a part number so you can cross reference when you order. Remember to get WHITE!

2 of these -----------> http://superbrightleds.com/specs/744x-xHP3.htm (Part number: 7440-xHP3)
8 of these -----------> http://superbrightleds.com/specs/bulb_specs.htm (Part number: WLED-WHP)
6 of these -----------> http://superbrightleds.com/festoon.html (Part number: 42mm 4210-xWHP6)

Here is a breakdown of the bulbs:

7440 - Reverse lights (2)
194/168 - Head lights (2) Front doors panels (2) Under sideview mirrors (2) Rear License plate lights (2)
Festoon - Rear dome (2) Middle Dome (2) Front Map (2)

MAKE SURE YOU BUY WHITE BULBS - DO NOT BUY BLUE. THE WHITE BULBS LOOK BLUE.

If you need any help, PM or email me, or post in this thread.

Thanks,
Marco

Ouch....$100 worth of bulbs. Are they significantly different (brighter), other than color?

roccos_van
04-14-08, 05:58 PM
No one said it was going to be cheap! ;)

Yes, they are much brighter; but it's mostly for looks, not performance.

roccos_van,

Nice job!

$100.00 for all those LEDs is considered cheap in automotive lighting standards.

It gives the inside and out a completely different look and that is worth more than $100.00 to me. Too bad you can't do my Escalade for me. I don't want to deal with it.

What about the DRL bulbs? Are those replaceable to the LED lamps?

Good question. I searched and searched but the bulb in the DRL is some wierd bulb that no one can figure out; so i just left it for now. I'll replace that one day maybe?

If you do a search there is a long thread where someone gets a part number but there is no way to cross reference it with matching LED versions.

On Sylvania's automotive lamp replacement guide, it lists the DRL bulb part number as the 5201. Anyone know where to get LEDs to replace the 5201 bulb part number?

Mark's chart is much closer than the sylvania one. Never go by the sylvania chart. Here is a cross reference page for people looking to convert to LED.

http://superbrightleds.com/bulb_cross.htm?keywords=5201&go=Search

Here is the sylvania chart; i've personally gone through it to show you all how wrong it can be:

2008 CADILLAC Escalade

High & low beam headlamp
HID-D2R - WRONG! IT'S HID D1S...

Parking light
194 - CORRECT

Front turn signal
3757 - CORRECT

Rear turn signal
3057LL - WRONG THE ESCALADE IS LED

Tail light
3057LL - WRONG THE ESCALADE IS LED

Stop light
3057LL - WRONG AGAIN HE ESCALADE IS LED

High mount stop light
Assembly - CORRECT

Fog/Driving light
9145 - CORRECT

License plate
194 - CORRECT

Back up light
7441 - CORRECT

Front sidemarker
194 - WRONG THE SIDE MARKERS ARE LED

Rear sidemarker
194 - WRONG THE REAR SIDE MARKER IS LED

Glove box
194 - WRONG THERE IS NO GLOVE BOX LIGHT

Map light
578 - CORRECT

Dome light
578 - CORRECT

Step/Courtesy light
168 - CORRECT

Trunk/Cargo area
578 - CORRECT

Daytime running light
5201 - NOT SURE; CANNOT FIND LED CROSS REFERENCE...

The best and only way to know for sure is to remove the factory bulbs and see exactly what you have.

The chart is almost 100% correct EXCEPT for the DRL. I removed my headlights b/c i installed 5000K D1S bulbs and the LED top marker light, i did look at the DRL bulb and it had a strange base, the base was round, but not bayonet style. A 3157 bulb is wedge base and it will not fit. Thanks for the reference however, it's much better than sylvania's.

i got my led's in today, the int lights are so bright its like flash lights above my head! the rear reverse lights are not as bright as the stock blubs for some reason? is there a brighter led for the reverse lamps? i installed the left & the right was left stock & when looking at them you cant look right at the stock light because its so bright & the led is weaker.

so you guys see what im saying?

05-12-08, 01:34 PM
UPDATE: I put the LED's in the headlight lastnight & those look sick! much better then the yellow light that was shining, looks like theres hid's in both now!

italianospeed
06-01-08, 11:22 PM
Yes, the reverse leds will not be brighter, because they are not designed to reflect out light in that housing like the bulb is designed to do. I have seen different style leds and higher brighnesses for reverse but have yet to find one that works good for the escalade.

So far the brightest reverse lights Ive had are xenon bulbs.

But I would really like an led option....

06-02-08, 10:29 AM
Not long time ago I had to meet somebody from this forum. the reverse lights he's got were pretty cool and very bright. 25 LED's per light bulb. If any questions, hes name on this forum is "Vecstasy"

not gonna happen. they are so cheapos. and on top of that, with all the new changes in the lineup...they are taking a big hit on the bottom lines, with the SUV sales dropping like crazy. keep in mind that that the latest model did not have a lot of "goodies" from the previous. you know some small things, like instant mileage, duh... and they changed the seats, making these smaller, they took out the cabin filter, and such others...my guess? not gonna happen. but who knows. good luck though.

I actually tried the Superbrightleds route but after ordering a bunch from Jake @ V-LEDS, the V-LEDS are much much brighter! Although a few are more money, IMO, I think its worth it in terms of brightness. As far as the DOMES go (Dont waste your money on the Putco Escalade ones) I ordered the UNIVERSAL PUTCO DOME LEDS from JC Whitney. They light up the cabin immensely!!! I went with the 20 piece for front & center & 24 piece for the rear...You dont have to get those sizes I just went with the biggest I could. The smaller ones are much cheaper.

The DRLs Im still working on..Ive changed every bulb except for that one!......I did manage to get an H11 to fit on two of the three tabs, and it seems like a very tight stable fit...I might do and LED H11. Hmm..I wonder if an HID H11 would work I have a few of those...

I bought a really cheap system off ebay about $75 for a 35 watt H11 kit so I bought some 3000K bulbs off ebay for about $15. They seem to take a little time to come on to full brightness.

So I bought this 55 watt regular size kit with 3000K fromhttp://www.therpmstore.com/product_info.php?cPath=35_36&products_id=336

but they sent me the slim and a relay harness by mistake...bonus for me!

Rocco-

I just bought a new 08 Escalade andthen I found out that the 09s will have the LEds headlamps. Based on your post, it seems that I can just buty all these LED bulbs and replace existing -- is it literally that simple or are there any other wiring fixes that nee dto be made?
Approximately how much do all the LED bulbs that tyou listed cost for a full conversion? Is the difference worth teh cost.
Thanks for any information.

I think you'll find that if you do some reading, there are many of us that have posted what we used, including myself. It wasnt hard for me to remove all my bulbs, identify what they are, and replace them with led.

If you want the brightest leds. V-LEDS is the place! I have shopped 3 other led sites, spent hundreds of dollars, and have found vleds to have the brightest..

Same here. Im experimenting with an extra H11 hid kit I have that comes with a different relay harness to work with the DRL's. Im going to see if I can try it today. As far as an exact replacement I have not found, a few that look pretty close. It seems the 07 Tahoe has something similiar just not what the Lade has.

I found only 2 kinds of bulbs.

These are the reverse I used..Pretty Pricey...But Very Bright!!

http://www.v-leds.com/Shop/Control/Product/fp/vpid/6417548/vpcsid/0/SFV/32481

Used these for the Vanity Mirrors...Provides a much brighter whiter light.

http://www.v-leds.com/Shop/Control/Product/fp/vpid/4481128/vpcsid/0/SFV/32481



It looks like they dont sell the 7 watt 194 168 style anymore. I bought 4 of them for them and they were $49 a pair. These below are different but similar in a high power only $29 a pair...

I used them for the top headlight bulb and license plate and under mirrors.

Thinking about converting my 2007 EXT to LED. You think the same LEDs will work on the EXT as on your lade? I'm sure the interior, doors & rearview mirror lights are the same less one set of overhead lights, but my license plate is different. Calle dthe dealer and they say it's a 192 so I'm sure this is the same right?

It was actually a kit called Light Glow that I purchased from a local car shop. Its a 7 color LED kit that come with 4 little bulbs and then 4 bars for under the dash. I hooked it up to a 12volt accessory wire that came with my lockpick for the nav. As far as the install goes, it was pretty simple

This is how everything turned out for me
Hope this helps for everyone else who would like to switch to LEDs
Personally I like it a lot

Would love to figure out what I could switch the DRL bulb with, but it seems like we are all on stuck on that

Did you change your fog lights into LED? what is the part number?

what did you do with front turn signal?

The bulbs are "polarized" they have a positive and a negative. If they are in the wrong way they wont work. Test with your stock bulbs to ensure it's not a factory problem, also test the bulbs that don't work in a different area like the door panels (same bulb) and see what happens.

Anyone have any tips/instructions on how to replace the headlight bulbs? My Escalade is in for service today and I asked my service advisor if they could install the LEDs into the headlights.

Last night I replaced both lights in the headlight assembly (07 EXT), only took about 30 minutes. You do not need to remove the assembly from the truck.
Driver side - remove 1 bolt from the washer fluid res. to give a little more room.
Pass side - I have a K&N CAI, so just open the airbox, remove filter and you are in business. If no CAI, then just remove the factory airbox - lots of room.

For the Park lights (top) - I used white 194 wedge LED's. Use needlenose pliers to unscrew the light holder (1/4 turn).

For the DRL's (middle) - I used Putco, Pure, Ion Spark White 3800K (H16/9009 - 230001SW) $30/pair. These ARE a direct replacement and look awesome. Be careful removing the old PS19W bulb so you dont break the grey clips holding it in.

I am picking up matching Putco H10/9145 (230010SW) today for the fog's.
The DRL's look so sweet that I can't wait to put in matching Fog's - although they are not on at the same time.

I have an 09 escalade ESV, I have counted up all the bulbs I have in the car, and am having the dilemma of where to order from, putco, advanced automotive concepts or v-leds.

My fear is ordering these for a few hundred and only having a 30 day warranty, all my other cadillacs, the leds would flicker and burn out within a few months.

Any ideas? Also, I know the bulb types but when I go to these sites there are so many variations, would anyone be willing to work with me and send me links? Your help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Thanks for the tip. Ended up changing the top bulbs of both headlights by just removing the top two screws on the headlights and pulling out the assembly a little. Was definitely a tight fit trying to access the lights, but I'm 100% happy with the results.

Guys, quick question for all you who did the LED conversion. I heard that in a couple places the multi LEDs, don't fit. Did you see a benefit to putting in the multi's or just the single (cheaper) option. I think the more expensive reverse lights are the way to go.

Anyone do the front blinkers to LED yet?

CADDYFAT
12-03-09, 03:50 PM
The front side markers are LED. Are you referring to the top bulb or middle? Top is a 194 parking bulb and lots of people have done that. Middle is DRL- Daytime running light and not too many people have done that LED because of the lack of availability. This is the best option IMHO - I am going to order it.

I bought every bulb from the first post and they look great. I still need to change the tail light and headhlight.

I noticed the package for the (Part number: WLED-WHP) stated "Do Not Install in headlight housing"

Are they safe for the top headlight as the first post states?

2 Other things:

1 - Does anyone have any pictures of what the (Part number: WLED-WHP) looks like in the front headlight?

2 - What LED can you use in the fog lights and are they easy to change?

OK got my bulbs today. Didn't get a chance to get the top bulb in the headlights in (parking light) but it does appear from the size of them that the WLED-WHP5 bulb from superbrightled's will fit no problem. No need for the WHP5 bulb in any other location, the WLED-WHP is fine.

2 of my festoon bulbs did not work from them, so I need to return them as they are definately defective (tried every dome light socket in the truck).

So you need:
2 - WLED-WHP5 (for parking lights)
6 - WLED-WHP (2-plate, 2-puddle, 2-front door)
6 - 4210-WHP6 cool white 7000k (for domes)

There is probably a bolt in the bumper...I know there is a little tab holding the bottom in, but I don't think it's holding the light by itself.

I removed the top 2 bolts, pulled it forward, and changed the park lights.. It works better if you pull it forwards then pulls towards the side of the truck. Otherwise the headlight angle adjustment stem may get in your way.

DRL's should be easier than the park lights.

It's a 5202 LED and a direct replacement. Looks awesome, but pricey.

So I purchased these LED's to replace my DRL lights. Sadly, I cannot get the power plug to fit on these LED's. It easily fits on the factory DRL, but when trying to connect the power plug to the LED it just won't fit. Also sadly..I Broke the top clip on the driver side DRL. So be careful if you mess with those. Light still fits tight and bottom one works so it's not a big deal...now I know how to get the bulb out...(just an FYI...the top and bottom grey clips...pull the top one up slightly...push the bottom one down slightly to release the the stock bulb...wiggle the black part and it will come free)

If someone knows how to make these fit please let me know. I really want to change the DRL's from the ugly stock yellow. I got half a mind to just remove the DRL's completely...I Don't really like DRL's to begin with..so why even have them in there?


I did get my LED's in my fog lights though. I really like those. I wish my HID's were that color. Although the HID appear to look different depending on the angle you look at them. Are the HID's easy to change? Anyone have a place to purchase replacement HID's to match my fogs?

I think these would work for the HID's.

Just curious how tough they are to change.

The fog lights look really cool with the headlights off. Just the park lights, side markers, and fogs on...looks cool.

It doesn't click in securely..I agree but put it in...give it a couple of taps..it will stay.

Just wanted to give everyone an update. I tackled the DRL's again today with success...one thing to note if you do this..the top clip on these DRL's is very brittle..if you break it don't worry..the thing fits in there snug as a bug and the back cap fits very tight as well.

Also, when you pull the power plug out from the factory DRL, there is a piece of rubber on the power plug...mine was green...looks like its there to make the bulbs fit tighter or prevent water or something from entering the bulb. At any rate, remove that..the 5202 LED's go on much much easier with that gone and they fit very tight on the power plug. This way to you won't have problems closing the black cap back on the back of the DRL itself.

Now here are some photos (have my LED fogs on in some of them and my park lots have also been changed):

Photos do no justice here...this look so much better than the factory DRL's it's not funny.

I do have to admit... it would look better with the fog lights on like yours...but I like how clean my bumper looks without them.

If anyone wants to check out the rest of my work plus all the lights converted to LED....check it out here

I like those park lights you have...did you convert them to HID or something? because they are super bright.

Which DRL did you use?

You used 8500 HID for the headlight right?


I also like your grill and tow hook covers...is that the T REX grill?

I agree! Inquiring minds want to know. That looks amazing! I want to convert the entire Escalade front end to LED. GM should have done this from the factory. They did the taillights in LED, but nothing else. What a waste!

What bulb do you have in your Park Lights? They seem bright. I like them.

Is it possible to change the DRL's just by taking out the 2 top screws and pulling the headlite foward??

I think when I did mine... I just pulled out the air box and did it that way. pulling out the headlight is good for the top running light. leave it in and pull the air box out...its not that hard and i found it much easier.

Glad everyone like the work I did to my truck... ill try to get those day time pics when I get a chance... but just so everyone knows they are not as brite as you might think durning the day... so it might not be something you want to do. You couldnt see my factory turn signals anywayz so I dont really care either way.

Hidguy has LED kits. Dome, vanity, puddle, reverse, license plate. I plan to order LEDs from them for 1 or 2 of the areas at first. If I'm satisfied with those, I'll order the rest from them also. You can get LEDs for all 5 places for around $130.

----------

Do the covers for the puddle lights just pull off? How about the door lights? Does the door panel need to come off? Any tricks here or things to watch out for to avoid destroying the covers?

Just pry them with a small flathead. They'll pop...just take your time.....
