How to Install GM Dual Function (CHMSL) Wiring Harness for 2019-2022 Chevy Silverado & GMC Sierra Trucks
This article will be covering the installation of our Dual Function (Third Brake Light Bed Cargo & Reverse) Wiring Harness on 2019 and newer Chevrolet & GMC trucks. This will get the center high mount stop lamp (CHMSL) cargo lights on your Silverado or Sierra to work as both a cargo light and a reverse lamp. This will also enable your rear facing tailgate cargo light (if equipped) to come on in reverse. The trucks cargo lights will also illuminate when you unlock the truck with the key fob at night as a courtesy lamp. This will cause your bed cargo lights (third break light cargo, bed cargo, and tailgate cargo) to operate in reverse. This installation requires no additional tools and will take only 5 minutes to complete.
