    Initially, yes. But they both burnt out within five months so I just use Nokya Stage 2 7000K halogen bulbs now.

    Re: SRX Mods! *Very pic heavy*

    Hi guys,

    I replaced the DRLs with the ones specified earlier in the thread and now I'm getting the failure warning every time I turn on the turn signal. There's been a mention of adding a resister. Anyone had to do this?

    The '10-'12's didn't use CANBUS lights, but I guess if the '13 is saying you have a light out, then maybe they added it in. A resistor will have to be added, or a CANBUS ready bulb replaced in order to rid of the warnings.

    Thanks Captain! And for the link. Bulbs are on the order. I think I'll give it a shot and replace them myself instead of the dealer!

    Re: SRX Mods! *Very pic heavy*

    New to the Cadillac world after picking up my first one and was looking into changing the interior bulbs to LEDs.... Everyone using 194s go with 5k or 6k LEDs? Also I've read the thread and reposting by TheCaptain, but I'm not seeing the under
    door "puddle" lamps listed... Has anyone replaced these and are they the same 194 type bulbs as well? Trying to get everything in line before I make a mass LED purchase to replace them all at once

    Thanks in advance!!

    Those lights under the doors are indeed 194 type. They pop right out using a plastic pry tool. The wiring is a little tight so you might want to gently use needlenoze pliers to pull the bulbs out.

    I would just like to say Thanks to the Captain for taking the time to put the thread up on the Forum.
    As I have owned the car for the past year the lighting up grade is top notch and no problems.

    Re: SRX Mods! *Very pic heavy*

    So are people mainly using the 5k or 6k LEDs? Curious due to the different hues of the light produced...

    I have used 6K. I like it better than 5K.

    Re: SRX Mods! *Very pic heavy*

    One final question, I hope... I noticed everyone was saying how pretty much every fixture was a "tight fit" or not much clearance... should I be looking at something like http://www.vleds.com/6k-white-high-p...58-1-pair.html or one of the flat setup 194s?

    Re: SRX Mods! *Very pic heavy*

    Xancrus, the LED you have linked to, is a directional light (most light out the front). It will fit, but will not put out optimal light since the SRX lights are mounted sideways in most cases. I went with some of the 360* leds so it doesn't matter which way it's mounted, light is optimally outputting in every direction.

    Re: SRX Mods! *Very pic heavy*

    Thanks for all the help here folks! Put the LEDs in today (was waiting for a day where it was above freezing so I didn't crack a cover). I've got them all installed but the 2nd row passenger lights. I can't see to figure out how to get the covers off without possibly breaking them. These are the push button lights -- I was able to get the puddle lamps changed out. Do I have to take the whole door handle assembly off to get to the bulbs?
