: '05 STS V-8 - Passenger Taillight - vertical outside row of LEDs completely out

At first there were only maybe 2 or 3 LED bulbs burned out on the outside row of the taillight, now the whole row is out. Do I need to replace the whole housing unit? Or is there an easier way to fix this issue?

I hear the sounds of sucking ($ from wallet).

You might try pulling it out and checking for conductor breaks/corrosion/damage. The LED's are probably not bad; it's the rest of the assembly that likely holds your problem. It could be the module delivering voltage to the lights, but I'm guessing.

Just to give you an idea of what your looking at if all goes South.

Does anyone know where I can get an install/removal diagram with the location of the bolts for the taillight? I think I've seen one online somewhere but cant remember which site it was on... thanks!

I hope mine doesn't have a light under the gas cap. Electrics and gas fumes= BIG TROUBLE! I'm afraid to look. ;-)

Yea I do

I wonder if you'll actually sell them this time... I swear I've probably seen a dozen or so people ask if you still have them but nobody seems to pick em up from you.

1BadCadSTS

Yea. I try and offer them up to help out but I guess no one really needs them. Doesn't really affect me I can just reinstall and sell my clears for more when I sell.

Hello I need a pair of tail lights for my 2005 sts, the LEDs started burning out one by one. If you anywhere I can get some used let me know I've been looking everywhere , don't want to go to the dealer

Might as well make that your signature for now since you post it so often. Compared to dealer cost and eBay cost your pair is basically a steal.

Hahahaha yea I thought so but meh they can sit in the box. The clears I'd get more for when going back to stock.
