    LED Third Brake Light Upgrade. Installing Axial's Smoked LED Third Brake Light is a great way to upgrade the appearance and safety of your 1999-2004 Mustang. This Axial Brake Light replaces your New Edge Mustang's weak incandescent stock third brake light bulbs with 12 super bright LEDs. These LEDs will vastly improve your visibility to catch the attention of distracted drivers.

    Quality Construction. Manufactured from OEM grade materials, this Axial LED Third Brake Light is assembled to precise standards for long lasting quality. Featuring a durable black plastic housing with a smoked red lens, this Light employees a single row of 12 LEDs. These super bright LEDs have an average life span of 100,000-hours, to last years longer than any conventional incandescent bulbs.

    Simple Plug and Play Installation. Axial designed their LED Third Brake Light to be a direct plug and play replacement for your Mustang's original factory housing. There is no cutting or modifications required for a clean straight forward install. Installation can be completed in about 15 minutes with just basic hand tools.

    Application. This Axial Smoked LED Third Brake Light is specifically designed for use on 1999-2004 Mustangs, excluding the 2003-2004 SVT Cobra models.

        Has there been any reports of lights staying on all the time due to the low voltage of LED bulbs?

        • Very sorry to hear of your issue. It is possible the resistors in the item are defective. Please contact customer service at 1-877-887-1105 between the hours of 830 am and 11 pm Eastern time to arrange a replacement.

        I did not see this question asked, but I am curious what is the difference between this and the Raxiom?? Other than 30 dollars? To me they both appear identical both are led and both are smoked. The description itself is basically the same, so I would like some clarity. Thanks

        • While they are both similar in design, this third brake light, item number 398336, is not DOT compliant, whereas the Raxiom third brake light, item number 49136, is DOT approved under Compliant #QR1300241.

        Do I need new bulbs?

        • This third brake light kit will replace the factory bulbs with LEDs.

        Helpful (1)

        this product isn't appearing like a plug and play. I have a 03 gt coupe and when I try to use factory harness and plug in the ends from the axial led brake light, they don't seem to fit or go into the factory plug. Afraid that they will hurt my connectors and then I have to buy another 3rd brake light. Any clues or ideas are appreciated.

        • You will need to simply connect each of the LED light sockets into the factory sockets. For further review of the install process please check out this great guide here: https://www.americanmuscle.com/axial-smoked-led-third-brake-light-9904-excluding-cobra-manu-install.html

        So I installed this product, and my brake lights stopped working, and this product does not light up. I have tried repositioning the plugs at 180 degrees like it says, looking at my fuses, and replacing the brake light switch. But it keeps blowing fuses. Is it possible that I have too many LED lights installed its overloading?

        • It is possible you have too many LEDs and overloading it yes. Please contact us for more details.

            Light looks great, was a little bit harder to install then i thought. with a long extension job is much easier.

            Third Brake Light

            Good looking upgrade but the installation was a little frustrating as the the LED plug wire was a little too thick to easily enter the old light socket. Had to really work to get them inserted and not sure they won't come loose at some point.

            Axial Smoked LED Third Brake Light

            Put this on my '03 GT. Only took a 20 minutes or so to get it in. Looks very sharp on the car. Only reason it is not getting 5 stars is because it does not sit perfectly flush with the car like the stock light. Nonetheless, once it is in, you cant really tell, unless you are looking for it. Also, when going to put the light mounts back in, they did not want to twist in all the way, so they are just sitting in there, which is not a big deal. Also, for anyone who has trouble pushing the LED wire connector into the stock harness, I found it just takes a little bit of gumption and wiggling to get it to go. Overall, very happy with it though.

            Looks great and brighter

            I have a 99 Cobra and these are definitely plug and play. Very simple install, just don't get in a rush putting the new led base into the socket. Rock it back and forth and it will snap in. Hats off to A/M and their C/S.

            Better Than New!!

            This is a definite upgrade to my tired and faded original trunk brake light. The replacement was straight forward and took about 30 minutes to remove the old and install the new. The only issue I had was inserting the LED leads into the original bulb sockets, they were very difficult to insert. However, a dab of dielectric grease provided enough lubricant where the leads slid right in. This is a must-have, low-cost upgrade that significantly enhances the look of the rear deck. The LEDs are way brighter than the original bulbs and the fixture fit was perfect. Highly recommend!
