    Rear LED Tail light out

    My driver's rear LED tail light is out...however the turn signal and brake lights still work. Do I have to replace the entire tail light assembly or is there just a module that needs replacing? Sadly warrant has expired.

    Thanks

    There is a 'hazard/turn signal module' that is replaceable. It is under the dash closeout panel on driver side.Tail and stop lamps both go thru this so it has probably partially failed. Good luck.

    Re: Rear LED Tail light out

    Hi

    Since i have the same problem, (passenger side tail light was replaced under warranty in november, and it went bad last week again, but the warranty has ended now) did this suggestion here work?

    edit: when braking, it works, and when i turn hazard on, it flashes together in sync with the yellow turn signal one - at the same time on the left side the red park stays just on and turn signal yellow flashes.

    any ideas?
    thnx

    Re: Rear LED Tail light out

    Huhh

    are you 100% sure it's tail light and not some kind of module? i mean, failing 2 times during 6 months...sounds kind of suspicious......But if so...then it's not funny at all.....i don't know yet if there any differences between US and Euro specs tail lights, but dealer said yesterday that the price for the new one is about 1000USD. :-(
    This whole US car thing starts pissing me off slowly. All my cars have been US ones - Olds 98 Regency, Taurus, Caddy 2 dr Fleetwood, Thunderbird, STS and now SRX. Last one has less than 50K miles, 3 year warranty ended in december, tail light was replaced in november and now it's out again. And i have driven it during this 6 months approx. 3000 miles...... i mean no wonder Cadillac isn't selling well in europe...if you're asking MB and BMW price but original parts are failing after 6 months and replacement parts are pricey as hell....but i guess that's the price you have to pay if you're a fan of american over here. I'll go to mechanic tomorrow and try to find out what's the exact case here....

    :-(

    If you get repeated failures, it could be a bad module or water getting in somehow.

    Mrmackey, I just wanted to let you know I'd be happy to investigate any warranty specifics on your SRX on your behalf. Please feel free to send me an email at Katie_Lucille@gmexpert.com containing the last eight of your VIN, and I can investigate for you. While I'm not a technician, I'm also happy to explore my resources on your behalf, so let me know if you'd like further assistance!

    Best,

    Katie

    Katie:

    Perhaps you could find the part number for the European version of the drivers side tail lamp for him and post it here... it will be different then the part number I posted, as what I posted is for the American version of the lamp.

    The America version is bright red, with no yellow lamps... the Euro version is a dark brandy red with yellow turn indicators.

    Re: Rear LED Tail light out

    It's passenger side. And seems like maybe it's this one here with part nr 25936966 since seems like i have this RPO code T79 - LAMPS,REAR FOG(EXPORT) RR FOG LP

    http://parts.nalleygmc.com/products/.../25936966.html

    so online prices start from 390USD (GMPartsdirect.com) .... but the thing is that majority those parts vendors are not shipping to Europe and if they do taxes and shipping will be hundreds of additional dollars. But that's not the actual problem if it's broken then it's broken, but what i want to know before i start to abuse my credit card....is it really possible that this original GM part fails so fast...or is there something else ...because i really don't want to be in the same position after 6 months again....


    And i'm really thankful for everybody for their opinions.

    :-)

    The manual says check the stop lamp relay ground. Here's the schematic for export model.

    Also, check the ground for that lamp, both where it attaches to the body and the pin in the harness connector.

    Re: Rear LED Tail light out

    Hi

    Thought that i'll give a little update on that tail lamp issue. Checked all those suggested grounds, relays etc, and seems like power comes to connector just fine...so it suggested that tail light itself was cooked. Replaced it couple months ago with a one from 2005 SRX. Voila! everything was ok - park was illuminating and i thought that issue was solved. But when i hit turn signal then it flashed normally one time and then started to flash rapidly. Mechanic said that maybe there's some differerences between 2005 and 2008 wiring...but at the same time when i checked online for this tail light (part 25936966) then every online store says that it fits 2004-2009...so at the moment it kinda puzzles me.. since with the original taillight, turn flashed ok but park was out. With this replacement one park is ok but turn seems wrong...any ideas?

    :-)

    If you have a trailer wiring harness it may cause this problem. Remove the harness from behind the bumper and plug the connectors back without it and see if that helps.

    Has anybody here actually opened taillight? I know it's a one piece design and shouldn't be opened but still.... :-)

    Re: Rear LED Tail light out

    Back to post #11, if the park works and the turn doesn't, does the brake work? How about the CHMSL? Those can cause problems. I'm also thinking a problem in the module. If you still have the bad original one, why not take it apart? Inquiring minds would like to know!

    Re: Rear LED Tail light out

    Ok my current situation is: In order to avoid police and possible ticket i got one from junkyard from 2005 SRX (part number 25763466). And with this one i have same problem as with the one i tried couple of months ago - park works, brake works but turn will start flashing rapidly after 2 normal flashes. But for police a little bit faulty turn it's not such a big crime versus no park. Also...guy from junkyard said that add some resistor and park will be working no problem. So at the moment i'm driving with it. I also have my original taillight (25936966) which has turn and brake but no park. At the moment if you want to buy new taillight for export SRX there's only this 25936966 available and since it fits 2004-2009 i think it has been revised somehow to work with both pre and after 2007 electrical wirings when this 25763466 goes crazy with turn attached to 2007 car. CHMSL is fine. And since i have the original just laying around i thought that i'll ask a question since my intention is to take it apart and maybe fix it. Not by myself but by someone who knows a little bit more about those things. Apparently opening it is somehow possible since conversion from US red turn to Euro yellow has been done here by some specialists... http://www.macustom.eu/en/gallery/33...ild-with-LED-s But whoever does it for me i'll ask him to take pictures so maybe if this goes ok it will be helpful for somebody in the future. Or not. :-)
