Can 2016 Silverado LED headlights be put on 2015?

Recommended Posts

Can 2016 Silverado LED headlights be put on a 2015 Silverado? I've looked around online and can't find anything on it.

 

It's the one option I really wish I had when I purchased my truck, the new LEDs look so much better and are so much brighter than my halogens.

 

Thanks guys,

Greg

As of right now, nope. Unless someone comes up with a wiring work around then it might be a bit. There were BCM and wiring changes from the 2015 trucks to the 2016 trucks from what the lighting engineer at GM told me. He kind of alluded to the fact they did it like that on purpose due to the DOT testing process they have to go thru in order to get the lights certified for road use.

Give Gen5DIY a call. They are pretty wise with this kinda stuff. They have an upgrade for a GMC 2016 headlights on a 15 so I don't see why they wouldn't on a Chevy. As far as them fitting, they look to have the same dimensions as the 15's. Good Luck.

So I have a 15 silverado and want to run a LED strip in the gap between the high been and low beams. On that black plastic piece. But I want to remove it to make it nice and fit perfectly and seal the strip with strip of plastic and make it waterproof. Has anyone ever tried to pop that plastic piece off before? I dont want to do it and break it. I know putco sells these, but im dont want to drop $150.2014-chevrolet-silverado-1500-ltz-z71-he

I replied in your other thread. Just put a waterproof LED flexible strip on there and wire it to whatever lights you want it triggered with (DRLs, fogs, running lights). You can find them at a bunch of places for less than $10 each.

Yes you can put the 2016/2017 LED headlights on a 2014/2015. They are pricey though. The cheapest I've seen on eBay for a set are $1,700. Then, Gen5DIY was the conversion harness. I just put in the 2016/17 LED taillights into my 2014 and I bought the correct conversion harness from Gen5DIY and everything works!

The answers actually yes - as there are multiple threads on this.

 

Just needs to replace the hood, grille, headlights, and front bumper to make this happen.

      Replacement Projector LED Headlight in Black Housing Clear Lens. Includes Hikari LED low beam upgrade wired and ready. Plug and play.
      This is a $500 setup that is ready to go. I got rid of the truck so no need for these anymore.
       
      Asking $180+shipping. 

      -Direct Bolt On Replacement For Your Original Headlights, No Wiring or Any Other Modification Needed.
      - DOT & SAE Approved.

      This is plug and play with:
      2015-2019 Chevy Suburban
      2015-2019 Chevy Tahoe

      Compatible on Models w/ Factory Halogen Headlights Only.

      One headlight has a light scratch but if you took to a professional detailer they could likely sand it a little and buff it away to look new. The one picture shows it on what would be the passenger side just to the right of the ELLED band. No impact on lighting and with some professional polishing would probably just disappear.

      What is a good brand of LED's to change out the factory HID headlamps for a 2017 1500 chevy W/T ??

      Hello all. 
       
      Has anyone had the dealer update their BCM on a 1500 to remove the bulb out detection system that causes the hyperflash?
       
      I was told they could on 2500 and 3500 but couldn’t on a 1500. 
       
      I found this online which states the same I think (if I’m reading it right)
       
      https://gm.oemdtc.com/4610/07-08-42-006m-information-on-available-bcm-calibrations-to-restore-bulb-outage-detection-on-vehicles-produced-by-a-second-stage-manufacturer-upfitter-turn-signals-flash-fast-after-factory-box-remo
       
       
      But, I feel like I’ve seen where others had this done on a 1500, but coming up short in searching it. So any details would help! 
       
      Im trying to put LED tail lights on my 2018 Silverado LT and really don’t want to add a bunch of resistors as I eventually want LED all the way around. 
       
      Thank You!

      As my wife and I drove home one evening over the Thanksgiving Holiday we noticed how bad the headlights were in our 2004 GMC Sierra 2500HD. I had wanted to replace the whole headlight assembly. After some discussion, my wife talked me into just replacing just the bulbs first. After some research, I found that to be a much wiser option at this time. So, during the Christmas Holiday I purchased a set of these (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07H4GFS8F/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1). I received them after Christmas and installed them. They were not difficult to install at all and only took me less than 30 minutes total. As long as you orient them correctly, the display pattern will not blind oncoming drivers. They are much brighter and you can see much farther than the standard halogen bulbs. These particular ones come with a 3-year warranty. So far, I am pleased and like them very much. Since we do not drive this truck very often, they should last a long time. Only time will tell. So far, I would highly recommend these to anyone looking for a reasonably priced upgrade.
