taillight

  1. Gen2 Audio & Electronics
    Hey guys - not sure if I'm in the right section but I was wondering if anyone can help me identify the wires on the outside, larger tail light assembly that houses the turn signal. The plug has 3 wires, black, red and gray. I'm assuming black is negative. The taillight has 3 functions - night...

    Okay so I posted this on another thread but thought I would start a new one to post pictures and a video. I installed these on a Saturday, took me about 6 hours start to finish but now that i know what to do it's probably a 2-3 hour job. The install does require splicing into the factory...

    I've seen a lot of posts here about converting to LED lighting for headlights, interior lights, rear lights, etc., but nothing about converting the rear turn signals to amber LED. Does anyone know if this is possible with the OEM tail light housing? I like the design of the turn signals and...

    Sorry If I missed it, but can someone who has done so share their experience of changing the tailight and backup bulbs to leds? Do you access/remove via the interior panels? Thanks!

    So yesterday I was taking my wifes work stuff out of the trunk and I noticed that the Passenger Side Rear Taillight Housing has a chip out of the corner of it. :banghead: Like it snapped off and is gone. So I got super pissed and started to investigate some more. There are NO scratches or...

    I bought some dark smoke tail light tints to put on my tail lights only, not headlights. The law in Ohio is that the brake lights need to be visible from 500ft back (166 yards) behind the vehicle. I'm not 100% sure if my stock bulbs will shine bright enough through the tint so I was wondering...

    So I installed new LED bulbs in my taillights a few days ago, and noticed that the two interior trunk lights are always fully lit as if the brakes were on. Anyone who installed LED's in their tails have this happen, and find a solution? Thanks

    So I have posted this before, but the problem still continues. My 2012 Cruze has had the Technostalgia tail lights installed for about a year now. I have noticed that when I start the car (either remote or in the vehicle itself) something on the lights won't work right or the light will be to...

    So here are the rough preliminary stages of my LED taillight retro. I wanted to get a feel for a good technique for disassembling the rear of the tail without hacking it up. Also needed to see what kind of space in the chrome reflector bowl there was to mount the LED puck. I decided to go with...

    Looking for any experience others have had with chrome tail light bezels. I have attempted to order Putco bezels that are outline-only with a chrome border between the red and white portions of the tail light. 11-13 Chevy Cruze Tail Light Bezels - Chrome (Complete Set, Taillights not...

    Hello all I was wondering if you could use something else to tint your headlights/taillights, other than vht nightshades. I am looking into tinting my taillights/headlights and markers, but I want something that'll be durable and last longer than 3 or even 5 years on my car without it starting...

    Hello Everyone, I was wondering how to disassemble the tail light housing so I can pack them with LED's. I have the wiring all figured out I just need to figure out how to get the tail lights apart. Do you just put them in the oven like you do for headlight mods and what not? Any input would...

    Is there anyway to open up the factory taillights and remove the reflectors that are sitting inside the lights? I've seen pics online where people have done this and it makes the lights look awsome! Im really interested in doing this just dont know how to get the taillights opened...
