- How to install a Raxiom Switchback Turn Signal Conversion Kit w/ Resistors on your 2005-2012 Mustang
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.

I love this product, my only complaint is that it mess with sequential turn and brakes so that a little annoying but I sure love the look of an all white headlight on the new edge!!Helpful (0)

Radioman switchback turn signal
I like these turn signals they look awesome. It took about an hour to install and they are very bright. I would recommend these lights for a brighter look.Helpful (1)

Best looking headlight mod on the market
What can I say other than this product is nice looking. There is alot of confusing QandA about what works and what doesn't. I can confirm that the V2 Modified Flasher they send with this kit will operate as intended with incandescent tail lights without a sequential harness, as long as you follow the install instructions, I followed the user instructions posted to the right of the page.Helpful (1)

Switchback turn signals
First off I like how my car looks with the new turn signals. What I wasn't happy with is I spent $120 for basically the led bulbs. I replaced all my bulbs to led at 1 time, in doing so I purchased the v2 flash modifer. That took care of all the hyper flash so the resistors where useless.Helpful (0)

Badass turn signals!
I love how parking lights are white then switch to amber when flashing!!Helpful (4)

Works and looks great.
These completed my full led conversion and they look great. I also have the led tail light sequentials and these seemed to make the flash timing perfect. So for any that ask, yes these work with the seauentual tail light conversion as wellHelpful (4)

Raxiom switch back
Pretty easy straight forward installed I found making the factory wires little longer made it to where I could put the resistor where I wanted as it gets hot also the modified flasher caused the blinker to blink extremely slow for my liking so I didn’t not use it all in all anyone with common sense should have this done in couple hoursHelpful (4)

What color temperature is the white leds because I have the raxiom headlight LED conversion bulb kit that has 6000k as the color temperature. I'm asking because in the pictures this LEDs seems more blue than white.
The Raxiom Switchback Turn Signal Conversion Kit will switch between amber, and around 6500K for the white.
So will this kit work with the Raxiom Icon LED tail lights w/ sequential tail light kit?
The Raxiom Switchback Turn Signal Conversion Kit w/ Resistors (94-04 All) will not work with the Raxiom Icon LED Tail Lights w/ Sequential Tail Light Kit (99-04 All; Excludes 99-01 Cobra) item #387472 (www.americanmuscle.com/raxiom-icon-taillights-sequential.html). The LED's will draw too much power and may cause hyper-flash. If you want to use the Raxiom Switchback Turn Signal Conversion Kit w/ Resistors (94-04 All), I suggest looking into purchasing the Raxiom Sequential Tail Light Kit - Plug-and-Play (96-04 All; Excludes 99-01 Cobra) item #49143 (www.americanmuscle.com/sequential-taillights-plugin-9604.html) with the Raxiom Modified Turn Signal Flasher V1 (96-04 All; Excludes 99-01 Cobra) item #99032 (www.americanmuscle.com/raxiom-signal-relay-9604.html).
will the Raxiom flasher work with these i have installed the Raxiom modified flasher already in my mustang,i was wondering if the Switchback turn signal will work cause of them being LEDs?
Yes sir these will work with the flasher. I have the same setup on my 2000 mustang. The switchbacks will come with resistors but you don't have to use them since you already have the flasher.
Is this kit going to work with the 03 stock tail lights, or do I have to upgrade them to LED before installing this kit?
These can be used with the stock tail lights.
I'm curious, as most images show these with the parking lights on. Are these off when you have all of your lights off? And if so, how do they flash when you turn your turn signals on?
The dual-color feature allows you to use the White LEDs for the running/parking lights, but when you activate your turn signals or hazard lights, the LEDs change to amber.
They will alternate between amber and white as they flash.
This kit doesn't offer a function of alternating colors, this kit offers to convert your currently amber switchback bulbs from amber to white.
We haven't done the testing so we cannot guarantee functionality, however yes ultimately the issue would be a lack of proper power allocation, which theoretically can be resolved with resistors. However even with resistors we cannot guarantee this will work, so attempt at your own discretion.
Yes, you will want to use a low Ohm resistor, typically 6 Ohm for the LED signals.
This will adjust the amber switchback lights to a white light.
The Raxiom Switchback Turn Signal Conversion Kit will work with sequentials, but will need LED load equalizers added to the rear as well if these are not currently installed.
The Raxiom Switchback Turn Signal Conversion Kit will work with the Raxiom LED headlight bulbs installed. These will work by being white with the parking/marker lights on, and will flash amber with the turn signal lights on.
The Raxiom Switchback Turn Signal Conversion Kit does not require a switch to function properly.
Yes, this Raxiom Switchback Turn Signal Conversion Kit will work with those Axial Black Projector Headlights as well as any other aftermarket headlight that would use the stock turn signal bulb.
Hello! The Raxiom Switchback Turn Signal Conversion Kit will work with your 01 Cobra
