Anyone swap out the trunk light or the courtesy lights inside the car with LED lamps? Can you use normal leds or do they need to be the CAN type?

I have. Much better. Regular ol' leds. I forget who I bought the lights from though.
Cool I didn't want to buy regular ones and they not work then have to buy the more expensive ones.

----------

How do you get the dome light and sun roof control panel down?

It's been a while since I did it so I don't recall. When I get home from work I can look in the service manual and let you know. It was a pain I will tell you that. I may be find where I bought them on a PayPal search of my account. I'll let you know....

Autoglow.usa off of ebay is who I bought them from.

Sorry so late....right out of factory service manual....
1. Using your fingers, gently pull downward with equal pressure to release the retainers of the overhead console.
2. Disconnect the electrical connectors.
3. Remove the overhead console.

If I recall correctly you had to push it towards the front of the car as you were pulling down on it. Just be careful and you will be good. The hardest part was working on it while it was up near the roof. I did the led's and ran power for my radar detector while I was in there. It's a pain.....

----------

I'm not sure which led's came with the kit I bought. I have replaced under dash, overhead console, rear interior, trunk, doors, and drl's.

Don't know if you've already installed them or not, but I did my interior lights a couple of years ago. I followed the installation video from Precision LEDs website ( http://www.precisionled.com/cadillac...2003-2007.html ). For the map lights, there are 4 tab locations. You basically pry it apart at those 4 locations. It does seem like you are going to break something, but you don't. Just be careful not to pull it down too far when it does give because it will only be held on by the wires.
