2000 SL2
Question Need some assistance, plz. Adding tail lights to an SL2

I searched before I posted this, and I don't know where else to look.

I'm going to drill a .5" hole on the inside on my tail light assembly...up on the side where the reflector is. I'm going to install a 194 bulb, and wire it to my tail light wire. I've been looking on the forums to find a wiring diagram for the back end of an SL2.

Can anyone point me in the right direction as to where I can find the wiring diagram?

I appreciate the help.

are you adding another lamp to the tail light circuit? doesn't it already have a tail light?

I am adding a new light to the side of the brake light assembly. If you look at the car from the side, the front side marker has a light in it, but the reflective part of the tail light does not. Plus, if you look at the rear of the car from a distance, Saturn didn't make a very big area that the tail/brake light occupies.

So, maybe it will make the whole thing have a little more light.

I'm getting new brake lights, so I'm gonna try this mod on my old ones.

I just need the wiring diagram.

GM/Saturn doesn't understand how to do a proper service manual like most other manufacturer's do.

Brake lights - light blue.
Reverse - light green.
License plate/parking lights - brown.
Verify with the current harness before cutting anything...lol

With how overloaded the stock wiring is from the factory I wouldn't add anything but led's to the existing lighting.

The proper way to fix a S-Series automatic is to replace it with a 5spd O:)

I haven't looked, but what color wire is the tail light? I'm assuming all the ground wires are black?

I am going to use LEDs. As a matter of fact, I finally found a electronic flasher to support LEDs. AND...they have finally started coming out with LED headlights. I bought a set of 9005s & 9006s from CREE. Each bulb puts out 3200 lumens, & they are all 6500K. Even the 880 fog lights are 3200 lumens & 6500K.
