    2008 DTS backup and tail light diagram

    Does anyone have a diagram of the 2008 DTS backup and tail light diagram, from the manual? I'm hooking up a back up camera and it's easier to look first, for me any way. If any one has it, Thanks in advance...I looked for a while on site and google but never found it.

    You might want to take out a multi-year subscription to www.alldatadiy.com. It's the GM service manual plus a LOT more - and it's updated with recalls and TSBs - the GM/Helm hard copies are not updated.

    Well honestly, I won't be doing anything much more complicated than wiring a reverse camera. I know it's a lot cheaper to pay the $62 bucks an hour the first time rather than tinker, lose time, and money and end up at the dealer anyway. Just figured someone would put a diagram on here or say it's the yellow wire with the red stripe, or whatever.

    Actually it is a pale green wire. My son knows more than dad and we popped the rear compartment lid, removed the net anchors and 2 push in plastic thingie's and lifted the rear compartment sill, he disconnected the tail light harness plug, and she turned on the key, turned off the lights and shifted into reverse, without the car running and he tested the plug with a 12 volt tester. Don't let the car roll over anyone, if you know how to let the parking brake of [A JOKE] you could set it to be safe.
