Video Transcript for Roadmaster Tail Light Wiring Kit Installation - 2011 Cadillac SRX

Today on this 2011 Cadillac SRX, we're going to install part number RM-155 from Roadmaster. This is a Roadmaster tail light wiring kit with bulbs. To start off our install, we're going to go ahead and get access to our wire harness. Now we're going to need to start off with the large wire harness with two inaudible 00:00:17. We'll go ahead and remove one of the ends. We'll talk this end and thread it from the front of the car towards the back. We'll start off by running it through the grill and up by the base plate. To help with the routing, we'll loosen up the bottom inaudible 00:00:30 by removing these screws.

These will be reinstalled once we've routed our wire. We'll take out all our slack and leave some extra up front for working room for later. Then we'll go ahead and route it over the sub-frame going towards the back, following the existing lines underneath the car. And when we install our wire harness, we'll make sure to stay away from anything moving, like suspension components, or anything hot like the exhaust. This time we'll go over the sub-frame for rear suspension, and follow existing wiring up on towards the tail light. Then we'll go ahead and zip tie our lines to make sure they're safe, secure, and out of the way. We'll go back to the front of the car and install some of the loom material that comes with the kit. We'll add a few loops of tape to the loom as we install it so we can slide it into place.

Then we'll go ahead and tape up the end. At this point, if your tow bar and use a four pull harness, you'd be finished. All you need to do is zip tie it off or mount it in any fashion you need to. In this case, we'll be upgrading our four pull to a different connector later on. Next we'll go ahead and remove the tail lights. There's a cover we have to remove on top, then we'll get access to the screws.

And then we can go ahead and remove the tail lights. Once the screw is removed, we pull straight back to release the snaps. It'd be a good idea to use a trim handle tool on the attachment point up on the tail light to get it started and then we can work it loose. Once we've removed the tail light housing, remove the plugs to the light to completely disconnect the tail light from the vehicle. We'll start on our passenger's side and then we'll do the same thing over on our driver's side. Okay, if your tail light's removed, go ahead and get ready to drill a hole in the back of the tail light. Now when we drill into our tail light we want to make sure we stay away from the LED part.

Our bulb will end up going at an angle right next to our existing bulb. At this point to make things a little easier to work with, we'll go ahead and remove the sockets that hold light bulbs that are in the light. We'll go ahead and reinstall those last. To start off making our hole, we put our hole saw where we wanted it. Then we measured from the top and we got about three quarters of an inch. And then we're drilling a half inch hole so we went down about a half an inch. This is really going to be a tight fit, so it really pays off to be careful about your measurements. So we'll go ahead and find our center. In this case, we'll drill out a hole that'll be about one inch in diameter. Then we'll go ahead and start off with small inaudible 00:02:51 hole and then worked our way up to our hole saw and we drill through both layers: the outside layer and then the reflective layer on the inside. We'll put our bulb and socket back together and then we'll go ahead and install it. Now you'll notice the tabs to hold the socket in place are bent in and doesn't grab the hole very well. We're going to take the edges of the light socket that will grip the plastic and bend them out. We want a tight fit when we push it back into place. Then once your bulb's in place, we'll go around the edge with some silicon. We'll be using LocTite sealant with part number LT37467. Now with the bulb and socket installed, we'll go ahead and reinstall the original bulb and sockets rewire harness. When we're done with the passenger's side, we'll go ahead and repeat the same process over on the driver's side. Once both sides are done we'll take our wire harness and pull it from the bottom to the top using a piece of airline tubing to help pull it up. Then we'll make sure we have enough excess to reach the passenger's side as well. We'll measure how much wire we need for the driver's side and zip tie it to the factory wiring harness. We'll then cut the wires we'll be connecting to the driver's side. Next, we'll split the wires apart at the end. We'll strip back the black wire, the brown, and red wires from our new bulb and add provided buck connectors. You'll notice the brown and black wires get the larger buck connectors. The black wire from the bulb harness will be connected to the two white wires. One coming from our four wire harness and the other from the access wire which will eventually be routed to the passenger's side. We'll strip and splice the two white wires together and make our connection. We'll repeat this process for the brown wire from our four wire harness and our brown wire from the bulb harness. Again, this will connect the two brown wires, one being routed to the passenger side. Now our red wire will connect up to our yellow wire using a regular buck connector. Once our connections are made, we'll go ahead and wrap them up with some electrical tape. Now our green wire will not be used. This will have to go on our to our passenger's side for our right turn signal. Now we really didn't need to cut our green wire earlier, but we just pull it off to the side to make it a little less confusing. So at this point, we'll go ahead and reconnect our green wire and then continue on running our wire harness over to the passenger side. We'll keep it away from the exhaust by using a couple of loom clamps, part number A0500. And then we'll go ahead and pull our wire back up towards the passenger side tail light, and then we'll make our connections. The color code will be almost the same. White to black for a ground, brown to brown for a running light circuit, and in this case we'll be using our green wire going to our red wire. That'll be for our right turn signal. With all our connections made, we'll go ahead and tape up our wires, making sure they're secure and won't move around any more than they have to. And then we'll go ahead and reinstall the tail lights. You may have to move the wires around to make sure everything fits in precisely. With our lights reinstalled, we'll go ahead and supply power to our circuits and see how it works. We'll go ahead and try our turn signals one at a time, left turn then right turn, and then our running lights. And then we'll go ahead and do our turn signals again with our running lights. Okay, looks like everything is working. And with that, that will finish it for our install of part number RM-155 from Roadmaster on our 2011 Cadillac SRX. .

Found this item was wired with the brake lights for the brown wires and turn/running lights for colored wires and this fact kept me from getting this done very rapidly. Once identified, went together really nicely and actually grounded to frame for higher light output. I upgraded 3 wire into 2 wire converter with "Roadmaster Brite-lite 3 to 2 Wiring Converter" and they are as bright as the lights already in the housing. Except for that wiring issue, it would have been excellent. As to performance after install, great. Customer service was nice from Roadmaster as well. Did receive a call back message from etrailer a couple days later. 86819

Great idea. After years of towing with magnetic lights now all I have to do is plug it in, and I'm done. The kit kit comes with more parts and wire than I needed and was simple to install on my 2010 JK. 81930

Overall, pretty happy with this product. I found the quality of the product to be very good. I was lucky in that I own the same year and model car as in the installation video on the etrailer.com website, so following along was fairly easy. It took my 15 year old son and I about 2 hours to install. Most of that was trying to run the cable underneath the car, which is very low to the ground even when jacked up. I would have preferred to run the cable through the interior, but was not able to locate an adequate entry point into the cabin. Overall, installation is pretty straight forward. It might be more difficult for vehicles who's entire light fixture can not be removed. The product works great and as expected. 160603

I knew I didn't want to deal with magnetic lights for towing my Jeep behind the RV so I purchased this Roadmaster kit. I was a little apprehensive since I have virtually no knowledge with electricity. However, installation of this kit on my 2002 Jeep Wrangler was a breeze! It took me (by myself) about 3 hours of working slowly (to make sure I wasn't cutting the wrong wire!) and frequently checking the installation video on this website. The most difficult thing included in the installation is to make two holes to fit the bulbs; for this you'll need to probably go out and buy a hole saw from HD or Lowe's. Great product, easy installation! 162459

Very simple to install. I had plenty of room for another bulb. One downside was the 1inch hole they have you drill is not large enough for the bulb to go thru so I had to ream the hole a little. 88844





Comments

I had the same problem with the 1 hole saw that I used. After measuring with a micrometer, I found that the bulb is about .975 and the hole saw was only about .955. I reamed the hole with a 1 spade bit and the bulb went right in.

Good instructions. Everything need is included for 4flat connections. One bulb socket arrived with the ground (black) wire loose in the bag. The solder joint had failed. Resoldered but had to remove the other wires and rubber insert from the bulb socket to avoid melting. Not a shining example for Roadmaster. 147006

On the 2014 jeep wrangled, the lenses are one piece sealed so there isn't a good way to drill the hole because if you make it big enough for the bulb to fit through, the socket is loose. 136722

The base plates are still in production at the manufacturer. You will want to consult your owners manual for any specific information about your vehicle and flat towing. I would recommend the Blue Ox Base Plates for the 2009 Hyundai Accent, part # BX2323. This eliminates the need for an adapter,...

  • Recommended Tow Bar, Baseplate and Brake System for a 2015 Jeep Wrangler for Flat Towing
  • At this time we don't offer base plates that would work with aftermarket front bumpers on your 2015 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. I am happy to recommend the Roadmaster # RM-521448-5 and # RM-521448-4 that works with factory installed front bumpers. The tow bar I recommend is the Roadmaster Falcon all terrain # RM-522 because it has the hassle free Freedom Latch which allows quick disconnect from your towed vehicle. In addition, I recommend a Roadmaster safety cable # RM-643. It's an extra...

  • Wiring 2011 Jeep Wrangler for Flat Towing Behind RV
  • You will indeed need the Roadmaster Brite-Lite vehicle-to-vehicle tail light converter, part # RM-154 in order to install the Hopkins tail light isolating diode system in your Wrangler. If you take a look at the schematic I have provided, you can see how the system is wired. My research shows that the Roadmaster Tail-Light Wiring Kit with Bulb and Socket, part # RM-155 would be compatible with your Jeep, and would be much easier to install. This system uses bulbs wired directly to the...

  • Difference Between Standard Brake Controller and Supplemental Braking System Flat Towing Honda CR-V
  • The difference between the Blue Ox Patriot # BRK2012 that you referenced and a standard brake controller that sends the signal through the blue wire has to do with how the units work with the different brakes. The Patriot works with hydraulic brakes that are in vehicles and standard brake controllers work with trailers with electric brakes. The Patriot will not work on trailers and standard brake controllers will not work on automobiles. The Blue Ox Patriot # BRK2012 that you referenced...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2011 Ford Fiesta With a 35 ft. Fleetwood Bounder Gas
  • For your 2011 Ford Fiesta, you will need several items to complete a flat towing setup. The first item will be a base plate kit. The Roadmaster EZ2 Base Plate Kit, item # 524425-1 is the correct kit for the 2011 Fiesta. You will then need a tow bar to attach to the base plates on the Fiesta and to the Bounder. If your motor home has a receiver hitch, I would recommend the RoadMaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar, item # RM-520. If you have a hitch ball on the back of your RV, I would recommend RoadMaster...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2012 Chevrolet Sonic
  • Before you begin flat towing your new 2012 Chevrolet Sonic, you will want to verify a few things first. If your vehicle has a 1.4 Liter engine and an automatic transmission, then it cannot be flat towed and must be towed using a tow dolly, like part # RM-2000-1. If it has a 1.4L engine and a manual transmission, or has a 1.8L engine and is automatic or manual, then you can flat tow your vehicle. The items that you will need to flat tow your vehicle are a tow bar, base plate kit, wiring...

  • Base Plates, Tow Bar, and Accessories to Flat Tow a 2012 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • The Roadmaster base plates, # 920-1, will fit the 2012 Subaru Outback Wagon. But, if you have an automatic all-wheel drive model, you can only tow the vehicle on a trailer. Make sure to consult your owners manual to determine the specifics on how the vehicle should be towed. The base plates will install very similar on a 2012 as they do on a 2011. All manual transmission models can be flat towed. If you find that you can flat tow your Subaru, you will need a few more items. You will...

  • Parts Needed For Flat-Towing 2015 GMC Canyon
  • I spoke with my contact at Blue Ox about your 2015 GMC Canyon. The Blue Ox Base Plates, part # BX1721 is designed to work with your Canyon if it is a 4WD.

If you are asking about the pin that attaches the tow bar to the base plates, they are not included with the base plates. Those pins are included with the tow bar....

  • Will The Roadmaster Base Plate Kit # 1432-1 Fit My 2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon 4x4
  • I would first recommend checking your owners manual or with the Jeep dealer on the proper procedure for towing the vehicle. Some vehicles might need to be equipped with a transmission lube pump, an axle disconnect, drive line disconnect or free-wheeling hubs before they can be towed. As long as your Roadmaster Stowmaster 5000 Tow Bar has a crossbar that goes across from one attachment point to the other, the Roadmaster Base Plate Kit # 1432-1, will work and is a fit for your 2011 Jeep...

  • Wiring and Other Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2013 Ford Edge
  • We carry several lighting options for the 2013 Ford Edge. I have included a link to them for you to view. A brake light relay may be required depending on the system you choose.

A system like # TM782057 would require a brake light relay, # RM-88400, when using a supplemental braking system.

  • Parts Recommendation for Flat Towing a 2014 Fiat 500L
  • I pulled up a copy of the owners manual for a 2014 Fiat 500L and found that the manual transmission vehicles are okay to flat tow as long as you put the vehicle in neutral. You need to check your owners manual to double check this. The first component you will need to flat tow your vehicle is a base plate kit. For that I would recommend the Roadmaster Base Plates # RM-522014-5. In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental...
