2011 White SRX Performance/2011 Radiant Silver CTS-V Coupe
As we all know, the ambient lighting on the V Coupe does not include floor lighting. Very disappointing as my SRX has it and my GT500 had it (you could change the coloring in the GT500, but that's another story). I see that one of the few Cadillac accessories available for the V Coupe is floor ambient lighting. I order the kit as it applies to the TSQ build code only (ambient lighting). I get the kit, read how others on these boards have done it in five minutes, remove the screws, and find no connectors as listed. I tear out the glove box and far left dash panel, breaking only one piece of plastic and popping apart only one switch along the way. I find the wiring to the factory ambient lighting and decide I'll just wire my kit in directly. By now, it's dark and I'm tired so I put the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle in the garage and call it a night. I then decide to call Cadillac and find out why my car was misbuilt! Having been in the dealership service industry for 33 years, I was quite indignant (but polite):mad2:. I had to drop the call as I needed to help a customer. While waiting to call them back, I went to Cadillac's accessory site to prove to her that I should have that wiring. Lo and behold, right there in print, I find "WITHOUT TSQ"! DOH!!! A: Don't confuse me with the facts. B: I'm an idiot. C: Why in the world would you be able to add it to a vehicle not so equipped, but not be able to add to a vehicle with ambient lighting???? What the heck, Yo? So I'll wire it in, glue and tape my car back together, and wear a bag over my head.:duh: Rant officially over.....for now.
