13 Acadia Plug and Play Light wire Harness

I was excited when I found TowDaddy Plug and Play Light wire harness with integrated diode box.

Wow No Splicing simple plug and play.

Only to be disappointed when I removed the tail Lights to find the Plugs were different, mine are 4 pin Towdaddy is 3 pin, so the manufacturer never confirmed fitment but advertised this as fitting my vehicle.

I have done a search for something similar and came up empty.

I called Towdaddy to see if they can help, they only have a universal Splice system available and no plans to fit the 13 models at this time.

Towdaddy was recently purchased by Hopkins industries.

Wondering If I missed something in my search.

For Now I picked up Bully LED Wireless running/brake/signal lights to get me by but I am looking for a Cleaner Solution. http://www.amazon.com/Wireless-Light.../dp/B00BPE6LYO

I don't much care for Magnetic Lights on my Paint.

Ted.

Use the TowDaddy universal kit - it's easy to do and it works the same. All you need is a crimp tool for the butt splices and about 30 minutes.

My tail Lights are LED so they could not tell me if it would work without blowing something.

I really don't want to Splice the harness this will void the warranty.

Only on the wire. Not really an issue, is it? Inserting anything into the circuit, whether by plug or splice, potentially voids warranty coverage on the lighting system, so you have already crossed the warranty bridge.

I can unplug the device and leave no trace.

I am not so worried about the tail light is it anything else electrical, they look for a reason

If I can remove it there are No arguments.

I work with Dealers daily so I know the game inside and out.
