Give & Take
2004 Mach 1 (Oxford White)
I have (err... had) the sequential turn signalsfor quite a while, which have a pretty nice "wow factor". I'll have to research if there is way to rewire the LED to glow sequetially again, but as a plug & play item, it's a no go. It does have fairly easy wiring, but I just haven't had time to do the research on that.
Also, I am one who complains about people who do not hold their speed on the interstate. I noticed that my cruise control stopped working not too long after I intstalled the LEDs. I dropped by the Ford dealership and told them about it. They hooked it up to diagnostic computer and the first thing that came up on the trouble shooting list was "have any LED lights been installed on the vehicle?" I asked about using a higher capacity fuse, err... something? The mechanics said no. So, for now, I have the choice of looking cool, and having the luxury of just setting the cruise control 10mph above the speed limit and just cruise.
I will note that I installed the third LED light two weeks after installed the tail lights. So, I might go back to the stock third light and see if it makes enough of a deference in amps to allow my cruise control to work and I'll research if I can get the sequential turn signals working. If so, I will let you all know.
I sealed and installed the tail lights and the matching chrome third light. All went well, no real hassles with sealing and installation - just take your time and do it right. They do look very, very cool. I get a lot of compliments on it anyway, I have quite a few more compliments now.
