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

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

If the vehicle frame is undercoated, you will need to scrape a bit of it off so that the ring terminal on the ground wire gets direct contact with the frame member or chassis. The ground wire is also tied into the...
