    Are there any GTO owners who have a blown/non-operational inside CHMSL? How do you fix this? Is there a fuse I am not aware of?

    I'm at my house in Grand Cayman and the Goat is in Texas so I cannot go outside and look for you.....but...I believe there are 2 fuses in the engine bay fuse box labeled CHMSL (something)...I remember 10amps for some reason....are you getting power to your 3rd brake light?

    To the spoiler, yes. But the inside one won't work at all. I noticed this recently, as last month, it DID work.

    I just went out and looked under the hood of mine and didn't see a fuse in the engine box for it.

    So did I. No luck. I saw a fuse for "rear window" but that fuse was good. I dunno what gives. I checked the brake lights and the reg. brake lights and the spoiler light works. I don't know if once an L.E.D. blows, the whole unit needs to be replaced?

    I do know leds are in circuit with others they are in a micro board,take it apart and see if your getting power to the plug,thats the easiest way to tell.

    Yup, I knew it. This is gonna be a PITA to fix. At least I can yank the pesky thing out and check for power without having to unscrew/unbolt anything, so, that's a plus.

    check for power at that plug and keep us updated.....you got me curious now. I've always kinda hated that one inside. It really shows what an afterthought the spoiler was and how the car was thrown together to go on sale here. It also kinda bothers me after seeing the trunk on the G8 and knowing that we could've had that trunk if they would've did a little better job and got that gas tank out of there.

    Ya know...

    I went out to the pool hall tonite and on the way there, I looked in my rearview mirror while slowing down for traffic and wouldn't y aknow it...the brake light worked...for a little while. I have a feeling there is a loose connection somewhere. Maybe at the light housing or under the dash? Hmmmm....
