What size bulb do the puddle lights in the mirrors take?
I can't seem to find this info anywhere...and I'd like to put in some LEDs there.
Thanks! :thumbsup:

looks like the 4410 9xLED is the one.

See; now thats another two sizes on the list.
I had heard it was a 194 up to '03 and a 578 after 03.
I guess I'm just going to have to pull them out and check, I was hoping someone's done it before a remembered.

Yeah, thanks, I've read that chart about a million times now... there's nothing on the puddle lights.
I even contacted superbrightleds.com to make sure I wasn't reading it wrong... they told me the puddles aren't listed and I should pull them... which I will, I just hate doing the same job twice!
Nobody has changed these??

I just took off the puddle lights and the bulb is a 578 which you can also use a 211-2. Use a flat head screw driver and pop the lights right under the side mirrors. LED's on the way

If I may ask...Which bulbs are you getting and from where??
I just looked on ebay and the 211-2 seem to come in different lengths.

does anyone know if these lights have a fuse? thanks

I would say probably not, like most they depend on the factory fuse in the fuse box that the oem lights use so either way, you are pretty safe.

Uh-Oh... no worky??
Did you try reversing them by removing and installing the other way?

I think mine come in today.

Someone mind telling me what the puddle lights are? I was under the impression that the puddle lights were the "Step/Courtesy light" as listed on sylvania?

I have some, but they came out kinda shitty, and truthfully I don't love the light output from the ones I put in. I think I might get some stronger SMT type bulbs soon.

I thought the same; it's not though.

Cool... is that white ?... Looks like it has a blue tint... Those are the replacements for the 194's correct ?

Yes, and yes.

They're super white 194s; they have a sort of HID blueish tint.

It seems like it has been a while since anyone has posted here. I'm now dealing with the puddle lights.

Here is the LED version at AutoZone (http://www.autozone.com/autozone/accessories/Putco-1-5-in-37-5-mm-universal-LED-dome-light-replacement-festoon-bulb/_/N-25zv?itemIdentifier=377826_0_0_)

SuperBrightLED.com has two different options

Really Bright but more $ (http://www.superbrightleds.com/cat/led-vehicle-replacement-bulbs/vehicle/2004-cadillac-escalade--dome+light/10-493--185775/filter/Cross_Reference_Number,4210,21,210:Cross_Reference _Number,3910,21,211:)

Standard LED (http://www.superbrightleds.com/moreinfo/led-vehicle-replacement-bulbs/578-led-bulb-9-led-festoon/237/)

As for colors you're on your own.
