I want amber (not yellow) fog lights for my 2019 Colorado Z71. I can find them in LEDs, which my manual and 2 dealerships say not to use. If there is no CAN bus how can there be "feedback"? Who can explain this? Secondly, I cannot find amber halogens for the 5202 connection. Anybody got a lead on those? Thanks.

I cannot stand the stock lights.  I just ordered white LEDs.  Im not really sure why they'd warn against it.


https://www.diodedynamics.com/    They have great videos on installs with an actual Canyon not some other truck.   And they do offer amber or yellow (not sure what color its referred to).

In regards to CAN bus, if there is no signal, as in no CAN bus support on the bulb, that will pop up an error message or do whatever it is supposed to do if no response on CAN bus from that bulb.  I don't think there is any "fatal" error like the PCM going into walk home mode.

Thanks guys. The Diode Dynamics are $120 a pair and they call them yellow. But the video was helpful. I'm going to try a pair by Calais that are supposed to be true amber at $23 a pair, with an adjustment to make the beam flat. I'll let you know...

      Anyone know if it’s easy/ possible to re-route the task lights on the mirrors so that they work regardless of the vehicle being in park?

      During a dark and rainy 3 am jumping of another truck, it became clear there is no lighting in the engine compartment of my 2018 Silverado. The previous truck had a light under the hood and the generation prior to that had a removable work light that could be placed on the locations. Not to mention that truck also had jumper cables builtin to jump Fords. So my question is has anyone added lighting under the hood? if so how?

      I am sure this has to bug other people the lack of lighting in the 2019 Silverado. Can people share what they have done about it if anything? It is really bugging me how little light Chevy designed into this model.
