Default TSB For GXP Fog Lights

Just wanted to let all fellow GXP Bonneville owners know that my dealership, after me hounding them several times now, found a TSB on the fog light wiring harness for the GXP'*. The harness is defective and causing fog light bulbs to blow prematurely. All is covered under warranty. Hope this helps anyone affected!

Thanx for the post as I've been concerned with that issue after hearing about from other GXP owners.....Was there a service order # or something I can throw at my dealer or something . Because I already know they aint gonna fix whats not broke, and that problem has the potential to hurt other areas on its way to power source. It should be dealt with before it "browns" other areas in the harness.

If you could get us the TSB number that would be MUCH appreciated. Trying to get this car fixed properly is like pulling teeth!

Remember this also effects 2005 SLE owners! I do realize I am the only one and yes it does effect 2005 SLE owners as well as 04-05 GXP owners too! Just wanted to make that clear!

Yep, and in a lot of ways you have a GXP gm4life ,and helped in this section as much as anybody.Your missing the Northstar( and mod wise that might be a good thing. ) Does the SLE have the extra 200 Lbs of suspension equipment ?..... If someone gets Dealer to do repair without it burning to a crisp first let us know. I'd love to bug the dealer but I have to much to take off and make stock to go to Mr. Goodwretch without knowing if so.
