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.
Fitment: 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 Details
Installation Time: (approx) 15 Minutes
Difficulty Level: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.
Will these lights act as running lights on the stock 05-09 mustang V6 if you don’t already have running lights installed?
The Switchback Turn Signal Conversion Kit will light up white with the marker lights,or parking lights on.
assuming i splice the signal wire correctly, can i ground the resistor anywhere? i'd like to install the resistor further "upstream" to protect and mount it better.
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
Will these work as day time running lights? Or will I have to turn on to the parking lights to keep them on?
The Switchback Turn Signal Conversion Kit is meant for the turn signals. It is not a parking light bulb.
Will these work on the stock turn signals of a 2010 mustang?
The Switchback Turn Signal Conversion Kit will replace the stock turn signal bulbs in the 05-12 Mustangs.

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 .

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.

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.

I highly recommend theses if you have a 10-12 GT500 looks perfect !

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.

switchback turn signals
used clear lens with white led side marker bulb. Look really good add a new look to the front

This kit is really nice and easy to install. They look great compared to the stock bulbs. I would recommend putting them on your mustang.
April 15, 2016
I installed these on the Raxiom ccfl headlights and the look great. Really adds a uniqueness that most others don't have. The install went very easy as the headlights were off the car which made it a breeze. The only thing is the instructions for hooking up the resistors was correct for the drivers side but my passengers side had different colored wiring. For the passengers side use the yellow and black.

Raxiom Switchback Turn Signal
Love this item. I had purchased this kit a year or so ago but because of a wiring mishap on myself I burned out one of the bulbs. Thanks to AM and Raxiom for bringing this item back to market. It looks great and I always turn heads when the lights switch back and forth from white to amber. The white running light matches my halos for a super cool look.

Easy install but...
These were easy to install but directions provided were not accurate. Just use the outside wires regardless of color. Also, the clips that are included were not very good. I had to purchase additional clips to complete install. Once you install the turn signal should blink at normal rate. If it blinks fast then you don't have good connections. Overall looks good!
