Review & Installation Video

Hey everyone, Dave from AmericanMuscle.com, and I have the sequential plugin tail light kit for the 96-04 Mustangs. They fit all with the exception of the 99 or newer Cobras. Now these plug in tail light kits are designed to look exactly like the 1960 Shelbys, designed for the newer cars, but with an old school look. This kit works by replacing your factory tail light harness with a new sequential unit, you’ll put this back in the same factory location, and reuse your stock holes. You won’t get the added brightness you’ll see from an LED kit but you will get the cool sequential effect with this kit. The nice thing about this kit is it’s a simple plug and play design, no need to worry about splicing wires together. Install time, it’ll take you about 15 to maybe 30 minutes at home. Once you’ve got the kit installed here’s what you’ll see: starting with the inner most brake light going out, your turn signals will sequence every time you have them on, and when you hit the brake lights, the first time they come on they’re going to sequence together from the inside out and then stay fully lit the whole time your foot is on the brake. You’ll notice if you compare these sequential kits to the 2010 and newer style, our lights are a little bit faster, still looks cool with exactly the same sequential design. So if you’re looking to upgrade the lights on your 96-04 Mustang, this plug in sequential tail light kit is definitely an easy and awesome way to go.

Retro Styling. Add some classic Shelby inspired style to your SN95 or New Edge Mustang quickly and easily with a set of Raxiom Plug-In Sequential Tail Lights. Used on Shelby Mustangs from 1968 to 1970, your modern pony will get a head-turning retro look with this easy to install and great looking upgrade.

Sequential. When activated the turn signals or hazard lights will sequence from the center light out and repeat until switched off. When the brakes are applied, the tail lights will sequence once and then stay lit during braking.

Modern Electronics. The Raxiom Mustang Sequential Tail Lights Kit is assembled from state of the art electronic components. The kit includes two plug-in sequential units, one for the drivers side and one for the passenger side.

Full Warranty. Raxiom features an "Industry Leading 2 Year Full Warranty".

Easy Installation. The Raxiom Mustang Sequential Tail Lights Kit is a direct plug-in replacement for the factory wiring harness. Simply reuse your stock bulbs for the brake light sockets and for the reverse. It's that easy.

Turn Signal Flasher. If you would like a slower speed for the sequence of your tail lights to get that classic muscle car styling, combine this sequential tail light kit with the turn signal flasher seen above in the drop down menu.

Application. This Raxiom Sequential Tail Lights Kit is designed to fit the 1996 to 2004 V6, GT, Bullitt, Mach1 and 96-98 & 03-04 Cobra Mustangs with the triple red tail lights.

Technical Note. These Sequential Tail Lights will not work with LED replacement taillights or on SVT Cobras with the rear amber turn signals.

Why are they so fast? I thought the point was so they could be seen going 1, 2, 3. not pretty much only blinking like normal tail lights. is there any way to make them look like the new ones?


  • I've attached the turn signal modifier below. This can be installed in combination with your sequentials to slow down the sequence.

Will this harness accept, and work with LED bulbs? So I've recently blacked out my tail lights, and they're not transmitting as much light as I hoped they would, so I've bought replacement LED bulbs that fit into the factory harness with no additional wiring. They fit perfectly, and look 10x brighter. My question is this: Would a sequential tail light plugin accept led bulbs instead of the factory incandescent? I can understand an entire new led custom housing, but not just replacement bulbs. If they can't, why? Thanks!


  • You can put in LED bulbs no problem, the only thing is when you put LED bulbs in any signal or indicator light socket you will experience hyperflashing (basically when your signal lights are super fast) this happens because the LED bulbs have such a low power draw. You can either instal resistors to make them work, or i believe that the Raxiom modified turn signal flasher will also slow this down

Can you program the brake to not squence? Can you select not to have the tail lights sequence when the brake is applied?


  • no

Are they brighter than the stock taillights? I have blacked out taillights and was wondering if there any brighter than stock or if they are the same?


  • These reuse your stock bulbs so this new harness won't affect the brightness, only how they sequence.

Is it possible to use this plug-in with the Raxiom Smoked Altezza Taillights? Having bought the 1998 V6 version of the Black Altezza Raxiom Taillights, I was wondering if the sequential taillight kit would work. They did say it work with the three light style, and they do technically have three lights on them.


  • http://www.americanmuscle.com/black-taillights-9698.html If those are the ones you have then they will work no problem

Will these taillights work on my 94 GT? I have the 96-98 taillight housing but was wondering if any of the wiring would be a problem.


  • While the Raxiom Sequential Tail Light Kit may work with the setup you have now it would not be a guaranteed fitment for your year car.

    I've always loved the sequential taillight look. However, I was always afraid that they weren't available for my '02 Mustang GT. That is until I saw a Mustang (maybe an '04) with sequential taillights cruising around town. Since then, I've been on the hunt for my own set. Thanks to American Muscle, I was able to satisfy that quest. It was super easy to install and required very little tools and time. And the finished product is nothing short of awe-inspiring! :D

    Raxiom Sequential Tail Light Kit - Plug-and-Play (

    Kind of pricey($179) for a mod that you don't ever see, I bought it and the relay to slow it down a bit, but still not very happy with it, maybe because I'm use to seeing the 2016 mustang with them and I was thinking mine would look something like it. Would I buy again probably not

    Raxiom Squential light kit

    Very poor electrical sockets, had to return first kit because one of the park light sockets did not work, installed second kit today and another one of the park light sockets did not work had to wiggle the wire in the socket and then it came on, if this becomes an issue from here out , I will be returning the second kit for a full refund, the sequential part worked fine, but if a park light doesn't work I would be looking at a ticket or a least pulled over and hassled by the Man, and who needs that, Right,and then have to reinstall the bulbs and factory harness back into the car, not much fun, rather be cruising,

    This was an easy mod. I was able to install the plug and play kit in about 30 minutes. Make sure you have a 11 MM deep socket--1/4 inch drive would work the best. Also installed the turn signal Flasher using 3M two sided tape. The tape worked great and the Flasher slowed the sequence. Great product and LOOKS GREAT!

    Wanna turn heads?? BUY IT!!!

    Buying the sequential tail light kit was one of the best investments I have made. At most it takes 30 minutes to install (I have never done anything like this before) and provides an awesome retro look. Its a great touch to my pony. Its amazing how a simple sequential tailight kit can add so much to a mustang. BUY THIS KIT!!

    Good product!

    This is an excellent styling upgrade! Itreally gives your stand a good new look (well that's when you have to turn) it was also VERY easy to instal! The online directions are very helpful. However there is one bolt on each side that you have to pry off this metal piece to get the tail lights out, once out it is a breeze! It's also very nice because it changes the type of light you have when your cars in reverse, so all the bulbs are the same. I'm glad I got these but I do want the plug in that slows the signal, it is a bit fast. Other than that another great buy! Thanks AM!!

    Should have been stock

    These are awesome and super quick to install. Have the right tools and install in minutes. My kit did not have any bulbs, so I had to go to autoparts store to get an extra BU bulb as they are all the same vs. the OEM setup the BU light is different. I also wanted them to sequence slower so I took the advice from another reviewer and got the Relay from autorix to slow down. Looks awesome. Especially at night. I was an average turn signal user before, now I find myself using them in roundabouts!!!!! Get em. Also they came super fast. Ordered on Friday in on Monday.

    Easy Install!

    Very simple and easy install. Simply plug and play. Couldn't have been any easier. Would recommend these as opposed to the splice-in kit. Looks great too! However, the only thing I personally don't like is the lights sequence a bit too fast for my taste. It would be better if they sequenced like the 2010s. Great product overall however!

    The Perfect Mod!

    This kit is perfect for anyone who wants to add a bit of classic style to their modern Mustang! Very simple to install! Only took me about 15 minutes. All you need is a screw driver and an 11mm wrench. After installing the harness, turn the car on, switch on the emergency flashers and allow about 2 minutes for the electronics to calibrate.

    Easy Install

    AM shipped super fast. Bought on friday received on monday. Took less than ten minutes to install. I had to go to autozone to get 2 light bulbs as the kit changes your BU light to the standard tailight bulb. All in all very easy and quick install. I did get the slow relay to slow them down as all the reviews were right in saying they are too fast. Luckily the relay came on the same day. AM should carry the relay, or better yet, it should come as part of the kit. Mustang looks great!!!! I was lax about using my turn signal in the past. Will now even use them on roundabouts!!!!

    It only took about 40 minutes to install them, so the overall installation was easy. I put them in with all new light bulbs like the instructions stated. The only thing I can complain about is when the package arrived, one of the two 3157 light bulbs that came with it was broken. But, the bulb only cost one dollar to replace, and it wasn't much trouble to get another one. All in all, it works as advertised, and I would definitely recommend it.

    I found taking out the trunk piece rather difficult. But this is the first time I've ever done anything to do with some work on the work. Once I figured that all out, it went on without a hitch. Easy to do! Love the look!!! Shipping was VERY fast *ordered on Monday Morning, got here Wed.* Also assuming I'm across the country from the HQ.
