I found this light on line and was wondering where in the car was it mounted? Anyone know and or have one mounted?

It looks fairly generic and could mount in any Cadillac. I would think you would want to mount it in the trunk, glovebox or console. Underhood would be easier to wire up I suppose, but would get dirty from road spray.

I think I would mount it to the side wall of the trunk and wire it to the license plate light wire or a tail light wire.
That way anytime the lights were on...it would be charging.

The reason I'm asking here is because of the model application information provided by GM

Cadillac: DeVille 2001 - 2006
Cadillac: DTS 2006 - 2006
Cadillac: Eldorado 2001 - 2002
Cadillac: Seville 2001 - 2003

Well, that chart makes little sense. The years and models cross over between styles. ie: A 2000 Deville should be the same as a 2005 Deville. They show 2001-2006. :helpless:

I'm with Hartford Guy...the chart makes no sense.
A 2011 DTS is the same as a 2006.
There is NO SUCH THING as a 2006 Deville...

From the picture it looked pretty generic...so it should hook up to anything...even a ford. :)
All it needs is a power wire to charge it and someplace to mount it.

Look guys, I know how to install a light :banana: and where I'll be putting them in if I bought. But I don't know diddly about anything Caddy that goes slower than 170 mph so I wouldn't know models/years.

I was just curious since it was shown to be installed on these Caddy's if anyone could tell me where GM installed them in their car (besides under the hood).

That's one Fanatic and one Connoisseur down. Anyone else?

GM never installed them in a DTS. It's a generic accessory. You can stick it wherever you want.

Since obviously, you don't need our help...and since they were "NEVER" installed in a Caddy from the factory...I reckon you can can just buy one (if you want to)...and just go stick it anywhere you want to....and not necessarily in a Cadillac.

Put it in a Town Car next to the sticker of that kid peeing on the Ford Logo. Or under the dash next to the wheel and install flashers so you can be the Lux. Police and pick on old Merc for impersonation of the Worlds Finest. Thats what I would do, but I am differnt breed of human, respectfully.
