It depends on the year also but generally it is plug and play.
Well we have access to a tech 2 scanner, sure ur familiar with them, and I can get on GM Service Info that has all the tech stuff I would need, but the coupe we got it out of has same options, told him to check the bulbs first but he's a busy guy, lol, helping others first . Thanks again
