I saw this mentioned in a thread on here, but after looking through dozens of threads I can't find it again!
After struggling to see while in Reverse, I think I'd like to install flush mounted LED pods into the rear bumper footwells in order to provide more light while backing up. Would someone who's done mod this be willing to provide a walkthrough on how to install the lights? (how you installed the light pods, where to splice, what you used to splice, etc)? If you could provide links to what light pods you use or recommend that would be much appreciated!
I've got a Putco Blade Quick Connect Harness inbound, which I'll install and use for any splicing.
Thanks for your time and help!
Hey all, I just did a swap from factory bulbs to some Xenon Pro 6000k LED bulbs in both the headlight and fog light locations.
Issue is that the fogs work great. But the headlights work for a minute then turn off and don’t return on. I have bought the canbus modules to add to the line but when attached they don’t work at all. Seems to be an issue from when the computer switches the voltage to the headlights for the DRLs.
If anybody has had any experience or ways to fix this issue I would greatly appreciate it. I’m about to pull my hair out

I did an LED exterior light swap (every single bulb), I put an LED flasher in, and I have two related issues.
1) When I turn on the hazards, all the turn signals and the brake lights flash. The brake lights shouldn't be doing that.
2) When the low beams are on, the turn signals show up as being constantly on on the dash and the signals and flashers don't work. (Flashing the high beams does not cause this issue, just the low beams)
Neither of these issues were around before I did the lights. I did the backs first and neither of the issues were present at that point either. I'm guessing I need a resistor somewhere but what do y'all think?
(Updated to reflect I have purchased BRAND NEW OEM LED Harnesses to accompany these lights)
For sale are my Chevrolet LED Tail Lights. I originally purchased these to replace my existing tail lights but had a change of heart and painted my existing housings instead. In great shape and will be cleaned and polished for new owner. Asking $440 ($470 shipped)
If you have any questions or want additional pictures, shoot me a message,
So, let me preface this by saying, as of today 8/14/20, no one still makes hood mounted LED pod light mounts for the new body 2019+ Sierra. Suffice to say, I got tired of waiting.
So, I bought a set of the APS mounts made for the 2019+ Silverado for $75 online. I figured if I hacked them up and it doesn't work, I'm only out $75. Shipped out right away and got them quick.
First thing, these brackets are thick. That was reassuring knowing I'd have to modify them somehow.
Second, the brackets are too long for the driver side. The cut right into the wiper arm when it comes full vertical. I took off 1/4" off both brackets but still had to continue grinding the rear-facing edge down until I had clearance on the driver side. I also had to grind down the outer edges that were making contact with the hood closer to the hood line. Luckily, these APS mounts are beefy and can handle the loss of material. Also, the wiper arm that I grinded into is only like $25 to replace, so ill buy that down the line.
This took a LOT of trial and error mounting them on the hood, taking them off, grinding more off, refitting, removing, etc. This won't work unless you have a cutoff wheel, grinding wheel, etc. And your trial and error will likely cost you a wiper arm as well.
