Hi, I'm Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I have with me Raxiom's Switchback Turn Signal Conversion kit, fitting all 2005 and newer Mustangs. This is one of those mods that isn't going to single-handedly win you a car show, or break necks on the street, but they are a very cool accent piece, that will introduce a little bit of that modern LED lighting onto your ride, with a twist. These lights use what Raxiom calls their switchback technology, which allow these lights to shine bright white for your parking lights or your running lights, and then switch to amber for your turn signals. So how is one bulb able to achieve two different colors? Well, the lights are able to achieve this by using a 60 LED T1 style bulb, of which 30 of the LEDs are white, and the other 30 LEDs are amber. Now thanks to these load equalizing resistors, it allows the light to change automatically from bright white to amber whenever the turn signals or hazards are activated. Now the bulbs do install right into your factory turn-signal sockets, but since you do have to splice in those resistors, the total install time should take you all of 15 minutes, which I still consider a lunch-break install. Now, since this is a Raxiom product, you do have the benefit of their industry leading 2-year warranty, just for a little added peace of mind. So if you're looking to add some modern LED lighting either to your factory, or aftermarket headlights, then be sure to check out Raxiom's Switchback Turn Signal Conversion Kit, right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Simple installation for anyone
Are these lights and resistors hard to install? Should I get them installed by a professional.
It depends on if your comfortable disassembling your signals and determining the correct wiring for the load equalizers. The bulb is simple to install, just like replacing it with a standard bulb. The load equalizers have to be wired in to the ground and the turn signal power wire. This has to be done on both sides. The load equalizer also has to be placed in an area away from other wires due to the fact they may get hot. If you have basic car wiring experience you should not have any problems.
Will these work with the Raxiom 2010 Style headlights for 2005-2009 mustangs?
YES! They will work perfectly.
Can I use these in my Raxiom 2010 Style Smoked Headlights and turn signal light without any problems
These will work with those lights yes.
Do these have the issue of Hyper Flashing? Or do they flash at normal stock speeds?
These turn signal lights should not hyper flash. The speed will be similar to the factory turn signal lights.
Will these work fine with the smoked turn signal lights?
The Switchback Turn Signal Conversion Kit will work with your Smoked Turn Signal Markers.
Yes, these switchback bulbs will work with those Raxiom headlights.
The Switchback Turn Signal Conversion Kit will work with any headlamp that uses the OEM turn signal bulbs.
Yes, this kit will work in the 2010 style smoked headlights by Raxiom and a harness would not be needed for this kit.
The Switchback Turn Signal Conversion Kit will light up white with the marker lights,or parking lights on.
We recommend following the installation guide below for the proper installation of the Switchback Turn Signal Conversion Kit w/ Resistors. https://lib.americanmuscle.com/files/49182G05-49217G05-49182G94-49217G94-49182G87-49217G87-manu.pdf
The Switchback Turn Signal Conversion Kit is meant for the turn signals. It is not a parking light bulb.
The Switchback Turn Signal Conversion Kit will replace the stock turn signal bulbs in the 05-12 Mustangs.
The Switchback Turn Signal Conversion Kit is designed to work with the resistors. We cannot guarantee these will function properly without them.
The Raxiom Modified Turn Signal Flasher, Item 99032/388878 is designed to be used on 1994-2004 Mustangs and would not work with this Switchback Turn Signal Conversion Kit as they are for 2005-2012 Mustangs. https://www.americanmuscle.com/raxiom-signal-relay-9604.html https://www.americanmuscle.com/raxiom-signal-relay-v2-9604.html
The Raxiom Switchback Turn Signal Conversion Kit would require the included resistors to be installed for proper operation. If you complete the installation and the problem still exists, please contact our Customer Service department for further assistance.

Longer than expected to install
Package was not what I expected, instructions did not tell you which wires to clip into. I had to call AM and they were to send me the instruction that indicated which wires to clip into. (For the 2005 it’s the center wire for both sides and the black wire for grounds). Would have given it more stars if instructions were included. See photos for look of before and after.

I love these light they are indeed white when not turning and they switch to yellow. Only complaint would be how confusing the dang wiring is, but it's just a trial and error.
February 12, 2019
Whole different look!
Install was simple, spliced into the same wires my raxiom halo headlights are ran to. Solid cool white with lights on, and yellow when turn signal is on. ( if you install these lights and they dont work filp the bulb 180° )

Switchback Turn Signals
Easy install through the wheel well. Excellent fit and finish. Well worth the money and gives the car a modern look.

Another killer and wallet friendly upgrade!
Love these switchback bulbs....easy install, look really great too...bright white when my DRL are on, Amber when turn signals in use. Love these and way friendly on the wallet!! Two weeks of lattes or these? No brainer!

I combined the switchback conversion with clear lenses and the combo looks great. Gives my car the modern GT look. The LEDs are super bright and the pure white light matches the halo fog light rings.

Switchbacks for the win !
Big difference on a 2010 GT500 , shoulda came like that from factory .

works great look great at night. would definitely buy

Look great especially with chrome housing and DRLs
After installing the kit in new axial chrome turn signal lights, then adding a DRL module - the car looks amazing. Whilst other Mustangs in my area use headlights for DRLs (which look unsightly), my DRL module allowed me to use the kit as DRL - so during the day the parking lights are orange as DRL and blink orange for turning; and at night if I switch the parking lights on, the DRL allows the kit to be white on normal driving with orange during the turn signal. So much better looking than the stock turn signals.

They just don't work.
I used the original wiring, followed the instructions, added the resistors, did EVERYTHING required of me to 100 install these. But they NEVER worked. After initiating their signal, the white will permanently turn off, even with the resistors in place. I recently went under my hood to apply LED headlights and finally removed the resistors because they're useless. I'm going to resell these and just use the amber LEDs. I lost money on you, Raxiom. I like your products A LOT too. I'm seriously disappointed in my vehicle's capability for LED lighting.

Adds an awesome modern look
These turn signal bulbs are easy to install if you have done any work with lighting before. Take off the bumper to give yourself some room, tap into the turn wire and ground and throw the bulb in. Instructions aren't super helpful, but took probably 30 minutes to install both and I am pretty experienced with lighting wiring. Highly recommend buying the Axial Mustang Smoked/chrome turn signal housings as well so the lights appear white, instead of yellow due to the orange tint on the turn signals.

These lights look great in tinted blinker housings, really bright and are a nice touch, I've gotten a lot of compliments on them. Very easy to install

Toke me am hour to install and get everything functional but their great especially if you have some good head lights you bright up the road in the dark

Switchback Turn Signal Conversion Kit w/Resistors
The switchback turn signal conversion kit was just what I expected. A great addition cosmetically. Gives you that unique modern car look.
February 28, 2018
good but terrible instructions
I was a little confused on how to set this up, but once you find out which one is your blinker light and which one is ground it’s easy to hook up. Make sure that you have the led bulb in the correct position when you insert it into where the old bulb was, otherwise it won’t light up. pretty straight forward. The vampire connectors are easy to where you don’t have to cut your old wires...

The amber color being on just to turn is a blessing. Love the product.
December 03, 2017
I highly recommend theses if you have a 10-12 GT500 looks perfect !
October 13, 2017
Installation is a little tedious and took a couple of hours but worth it.

These are a perfect fit. Really sets off my Mustang GT

Clean Modern Look!
These switchback turn signals paired with the Axial Chrome Turn Signal Lights provide a clean modern look to your 05-09 Mustnag. They are super easy to install and come with all of the required hardware. When installing be sure that the wires for the resistors make good contact with the supplied connectors. I would highly recommend these.
