Default 01+ tails retrofit?

Have searched and cannot find - does anyone have a DIY or pics of how to splice a harness from 1998-00 GS to work with 01+ tails and not throw any codes?
Much appreciated!

SO Sakataj....., I noticed you chimed in on Hawk362's thread almost 2 years ago and said basically the same thing you said to me: "welcome to the club, please search though next time as this has been covered many, many times AS has alot of things we all need/think bout."

I did search in Lighting and the 2Gen GS forums, closest I got was 2 threads total , both which say "some splicing may be required." Thanks for pointing out the thread that "talks about it"
Don't see any thread out there that meets my criteria "DIY or pics of how"
But if you know of one I'm all ears ;-)

i wanna say it was coco or OCH who did this but i dont recall....my 5 min search resulted in a few things that will help...using keywords taillight harness so what did you search under?

first one is a easy fix

http://www.clublexus.com/forums/gs-s...light-fix.html

i think this is the thread i was referring to....

http://www.clublexus.com/forums/gs-s...1-harness.html

Post # 9 backs me up and Post # 12 describes it...but i swear olddog had a thread on it but i dont see it....
