hey i was just thinking if i could mod my 3rd brake lite on my 07 ESV.
i want to mod it so i could have led across the whole brake light instead of just the middle. hey GMG i know you probably have a good ideal since you seen the back of the lights plenty of times.:thumbsup:

There was a thread on this before, I wish the whole bar would light up too, guess we would need to talk to someone that does led lighting things

the older model looks kinda similiar is it possible to retrofit it in? I haven't seen them side by side so i don't know if its a huge difference...

I'd be worried about sealing it back up properly. I see alot of the 02-06 3rd Brake lights with lights out! I agree at night you could always tell the older ones were Escalades by the 3rd Brake Light but the 07 doesn't light up all of the way :(

Seems cheap to me that Cadillac would not spring for enough LEDs to light up the whole enclosure, makes me think my Escalade is a glorified Tahoe...

yeah bena but unlike the 02-06's the 07's have VERY defined LED tailights, money can buy anything so yes it can be done...thats my motto and i stick to it :)

The 3rd Brake Light on the 02-06's is very defined LED's just like on the new trucks. I think its possible to have the whole thing light up too. It looks like there might be holes. I've never seen one apart or up close.

Hey, The 07 EXT 3rd brake light lights up all the way. I don't know why the Lade and ESV are different. There brake light looks like shit when lite.

thanks guys.
I've been out of order lately. My kidney stone have been killing me. on top of that ,doctor prescribed me wrong stuff, because he though it was something else, so the whole week I've been in & out in the hospital.now they are waiting from my insurance company to authorization for more tests, and in mean time I'm taking killos of pain killers. so basicaly I'm a mess right now.
anyway,I've been checking into this awile back.
once you take third brake light out, right in the back of it 5 torx screws, so I think it's possible to take appart without breaking anything.
however, if you look very closely to the third brake light, you'll see that in order to add more LEDs you gonna have to drill some holes for them, which not a big deal. The big deal I see (may be not) is to find almost indentical LEDs. otherwise it may look wierd when you aplly on brake. or may be is better to take factory ones out and replace them with same kind.
My original idea was to fill up those empty holes with LED's and use them for turn signals ;)

The '07 EXT has the old ('06 style) brake light, unlike the escalade and esv

I've been looking around and the only solution I have found is to purchase new parts and have the light modified. Estimated cost of about $800

I talked to someone who does Police lights, he told me at least 750, just don't know if it's worth that

Well...it is. But for the 6.2, cooled seats, stellar service at my dealer, and better warrantee, I would be in a Tahoe LTZ. Buy a Tahoe and put in enough upgrades to get it to 403 HP, and you could have just bought a Lade in the first place! Nonetheless I agree, they went cheap on the light.

I think that usspeed has a third brake light that lights up the whole thing.
