    SLS LED Reverse Lamp Upgrade/Installation

    I've added the SLS LED reverse lamps to my STS and am very happy with the performance.



    There were a few steps necessary, but nothing too crazy. The connector on the lamp assemblies is not compatible with the existing connector used in the STS, so the first thing I did was to change it to a standard Delphi Metri-Pack 150 series connector (shown here).



    I did the same with the connector on the vehicle, including a connector position assurance lock (orange component) to make certain the two halves can't inadvertently separate.



    You can see here the left assembly is installed and connected.



    Once the left assembly was installed, I took a photo to compare the LED lamp with the standard incandescent lamp. The LED is most certainly whiter and brighter.



    Here are a couple of photos showing how much light is produced. Unfortunately, I didn't take a photo of the original reverse lamps for comparison.

    ...yeah... ....nice work....btw., for the connection...I used a combination of 2-way AMP Superseal connectors and an adapter I made...(so there was no need in cutting the cars harness and I can, if I sell or change the car, "retrofit" everyting back to original in 5 min, without any traces)

    Thanks for your help with this! Not sure how I would have pulled this off without you sourcing the lights. I'll try to remember the intro for next time

    Lookin good. nice to see the side by side on the lights it gives an idea of how different the look is.
    Looks like 4 LEDs per housing, or is it 8?

    Thanks, definitely liking them. I wish I would have taken a comparison shot outside as well, but the side by side does give some comparison. It is four LED's per side.

    Do you mean Target, the department store ?
    I was just there, and couldn't find anything , that even resembles these.
    Maybe you have a part number, and it can be ordered on Target, on line ?
    thanks
