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.
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 have a 2007 mustang gt with the 2010-2012 style raxiom headlights. I just want them to be a steady white instead of orange, and dont need them to change when turn signals are on. can i just use these without the resistors to keep side markers white constantly? Thanks.
The Switchback Turn Signal Conversion Kit is designed to work with the resistors. We cannot guarantee these will function properly without them.

The amber color being on just to turn is a blessing. Love the product.

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.

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!

The lights are pretty cool and are pretty darn bright. I have the smoked halo headlights which restrict cars visibility and these lights actually lighten the road up. They look great and i feel great knowing i have Raxioms warranty.

These work really good and looks very nice at night. I would recommend these to anyone.. Thanks American muscle

So far a good product
I recently ordered these bulbs from American Muscle for my 2012 Mustang GT and so far it's a good product. They shipped in a timely fashion with secure packaging. Only thing I encountered was install time on the passenger side headlight housing . It's a tight fit between the fuse box and wiring if you have decent size hands. I ended up dropping the front bumper to remove the headlight assembly in order to install the bulb and copaciter correctly. So look to spend about 45 mins overall. The bulbs look great and function like they should and if you have clear or chrome headlight assembly these bulbs take care of that amber reflection stock signals create.

Great while they last.
These are awesome! Put them on the raxiom headlights and man are they bright. Had some issues with a headlight and they were still bright enough to light bright enough for me to get home safe. The blinker is a red/orange color but I really like it. The only issue I have run into is the actual life of these bulbs. The bulbs weren't on the car long before they started to flicker. Good thing they have a 2 year warranty and AM has great customer service.

Good Product but Misleading
When I ordered my switchbacks I was expecting a white and amber light when I used my turn signals. We'll this wasn't the case, when I turned my lights on it was a red color and a bright yellow when I used it. What I failed to realize is on the video I had watched that was on Americanmuscle.com, is that they had an aftermarket Raxiom Headlight as well. So on the stock headlight your parking lights have an orange film causing the lights to shine a bright yellow instead of white.

These lights are awesome! The only problem I have is that the white LED's do not turn off when you turn blinker on. The bulbs alternate from white to amber light when blinker is on. Be much better if the white light just stayed off while blinker is on.

Great at first
I have had the switchbacks installed for a couple of months. The install was time consuming since the resistors need to be away from all other wires since they generate a bit of heat and there is not a lot of room to work around the headlamp housing. The resistor wires were very short and flimsy which also added to the time it took to install. One of the resistor wires broke off during installation which I had to solder back on to make it work. Once installed they are ok looking on white awesome looking when amber and get a bit of attention but I just noticed a few of the forward facing white LEDs have started to blink when they are supposed to be fully lit. I have read a few other reviews mention problems with the white LEDs. If I had to do it over again I would have saved a few buck and went with the standard LED turn signals.

These are so cool adds the best effect to the headlights and worth every bit of money. Install was easy and that is comming from someone who has always been bad at electronics. A+ a must have.
