Customer Question
Just installed sylvan 2825...

Just installed sylvan 2825 led in my 07 Escalade Ext and the parts supplier sold me two 6 ohm resistors. Only one works on the passenger side that had th factory bulb burnt out but when I replaced the driver side the driver side would not work so I switched bulbs . Both bulbs are good. Any suggestions?

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Escalade EXT yourself? What have you tried so far?

I tried switch bulbs both are good put the factory bulb I and it works

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Hello my name is***** all led bulbs will work on this vehicle. Most of the time it is due to the programming in the body control module. If there is an issue within the programming then it simply needs to be reprogrammed to get it to work. In other cases I have had to go through up to 5-6 different kinds of LED bulbs until I have found ones that will work on this vehicle. I hope this helps. Please let me know if you need anything else.

Found the problem I checked voltage which was good turned the bulb around and it worked so the led bulb is polarity sensitive Thanks for the help
Cadillac Mechanic: FIXITMAN, Master Technician replied 7 months ago

I am glad that you got it fixed. Most of the those bulbs should go in only one way but some of them go in either way. If you need anything else in the future please let me know.

Strange but it only worked when I turned the bulb around so thanks for your advice
Cadillac Mechanic: FIXITMAN, Master Technician replied 7 months ago

That is how LED's are. They only allow power to travel in one direction. Most will only allow you to install it in that manner also. Have a great day.

Did not really help me fixed the problem. I fixed the problem myself by turning the bulb around. Apparently the led bulb was polarity sensitive. The lights are working great.
