Installation Time: Weekend
December 07, 2015
Awesome idea, not working in my car
I purchased the Raxiom LED Sequential Tail Light Kit for my 2003 Cobra convertible. Installation was quick and easy. Everything was plug and play as promised. Once I installed the kit and it worked awesomely....until I turned on the running lamps and then the head lamps.
I turn on the hazards/turn signals with the head lights and/or running lamps off and the kit works beautifully. I love it. I turn the head lights and/or running lamps on and the tail lights function precisely as they do with conventional bulbs (solid blinking, not sequential).
Another issue I noticed on the drive to work this morning....when my headlights and running lamps are off, when I step on the brakes, the digital odometer and radio face go black. The radio, speedo, tach, heat/A/C work fine, those specific lights go dark. Turn on the head lights and/or running lamps, no issue with anything going dark.
So I pulled the LEDs out and put the conventional bulbs back in. Everything works the way it is suppose to work. Tail lights sequence with lights on or off.
I do not want this to sound like a one sided conversation. The customer service reps at American Muscle have been nothing but helpful. They have sent replacement bulbs and a flasher at no cost to me. The next step is to send entirely new wiring harnesses, which they are offering to do again at no cost to me. I cannot say a negative thing about AM. I also appreciate their customer service reps and the late hours they are available is greatly appreciated by me and my weird work hours.
I know the chances of two wiring harnesses being corrupt is low so I have had the car's electronics checked and it passes. I hope it is simply the harnesses and it fixes the problem because when it works it is beautiful to watch operate!
