Hi,

When my car was brought to the UK the wiring was bodged by the looks of things.

So im wondering if anyone has the rear tailight wiring diagram or even a picture of how the rear tailights look wired originally so i can take it from there and work my way back.

Any help appreciated! Thanks.

Figured it out nearly. Only problem is, When i lock the Escalade..The reverse lights stay on til the mirror puddle lights fade off, then the reverse lights go off? What the fu....

This is normal, it is part of the security lighting feature. You can set it to different lighting options in the DIC.

I have mine set so that it keeps the headlights on for a minute and thirty seconds (it makes it safer for me when I have to get out somewhere and it's night with little area lighting.

Funny you saying that cos when i went out and switched off the reverse light function, i changed my headlights to 90 second delay aswell. Good little feature.

I agree I had found it useful at times at night to have the perimeter lighting on(I do late night runs and being able to see around the truck is great when my hands are full
