SOURCE: how do I replace the tail light bulb on my

ok cadillac for some reason has to be difficult about these things you actually have to take the whole tail light assembly out. . .here is what youre going to need:

1. socket wrench
2. number 10 socket (gm's nut of choice)
3. patience because it is easy to drop the nut be careful

ok so you have to open the trunk then take the plastic that holds the carpet down off. you do this by unscrewing the black screw on pegs (not sure what to call these things). after you do this pull the plastic thing hard because it is being held in place by some pegs other than the ones you have already removed. then remove all the side carpeting depending on which side youre changing. ok after this look directly behind the tail light assembly for 2-3 (i forget how many) bolt like pegs (my new favorite word) these are attached to the plastic tail light assembly. then take the nuts off of these pegs and then you should be able to tug the assembly off. then you do what the others say take out the socket and replace the bulb.

like i said cadillac makes **** hard to do. if you hate this wait til you have to take the whole bumper off to replace the headlight bulbs (might want to invest in some hid lights so you wont ever have to replace them)

good luck

Hello John Bland,

Light Emitting DIODES. DIODES... all semiconductors
are highly susceptible to FAILURE if improperly handled.

In a protected (anti-static) environment they do have an EXPECTED LIFE CYCLE.

In an UNPROTECTED... POORLY handled environ... you
can expect the slightest SPARK... (you might not even feel)
to render any/all semiconductors into USELESS trash.

STUDY UP: ESD = ELECTRO-Static Discharge.
Modern electronics should only be handled by qualified

REAL "qualified" technicians (at least while the BOSS
is watching) wear anti-static wrist-bands.

$300 Compared to $10K, $20K and $60K (etc. etc.)
circuit boards YOUR STS tail lights are pretty cheap...

I'd still recommend borrowing, begging or buying
a WRIST STRAP ... I am just saying.

How do I turn on amber lights on 2006 cadillac sts

They come on with the light switch or daytime running lights. Some are just reflectors. If they aren't coming on, but tail lights do. You have either bad grounds, bad sockets, or bad bulbs.

How to replace led bulbs on 2008 Cadillac STS??

You need to buy the entire tail light housing or if its the cyclops light in the center, you'll need to replace it as a whole part. You cannot replace individual leds on those parts.
