3rd brake light, 05 yukon xl
I was pulling out of my parking spot at the gym last night and saw my 3rd brake light (oem led) flashing and flickering like crazy. I figure that it has gone bad and I need to replace it. I checked LMC and they do not have the one I need. I called the dealer, $199!! I called GM SPO and got my employee price of $99! I checked a bunch of aftermarket suppliers and can not find one. Autozone and advance has them for $65. Any suggestions on a place top find one? thanks.

If it's flickering, maybe the wire feeding it is broken. Is the light mounted on the lift-gate? If so, there will be a wire bundle that moves and flexes every time the gate is opened. These wires have been known to break.Ray

I couldn't remember where it was mounted. An Envoy and a Jimmy, that I owned both had the light on the lift-gate (or glass) and both had a broken wire.

I pulled it apart last night and played with the wires with no change. Looks like I will order one from advance. I can get if for $52 after taxes and a $10 off coupon. What I found crazy is that I called autozone and they were $3 cheaper and had it in stock. When I asked about the warranty the guy said that there is none. I found that odd, so I called another autozone. I got the same answer. Advance offers a lifetime warranty. Same manufacturer, same part number, just $3 more.

Good deal for $3.00 ($3.09 Canadian, haha).
