Hi I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, taking a look at a splice in sequential tail light kit, for your 96-2004 V6 and GT Mustang. This kit is designed to give your tail lights, turn signals, and brake lights a very cool sequential pattern, first made popular by the late 60s Shelby, and now has become standard equipment on all 2010 and newer Mustangs. According to a lot of you guys out there, this mod turns a lot of heads, it’s sure to get noticed and makes a very cool, visually striking impact on your ride. Now again this is a splice in kit so you will need to know a little bit about electronics in order to get everything wired in correctly, if that doesn’t sound like your particular cup of tea, we do have a plug in kit that we offer for just a few bucks more, that makes everything a little bit easier. Everything you need to complete the job is included with the kit, first we have the actual relays themselves, we do also have all the components necessary to install the kit: butt connectors, wire ties, etc., and finally we have the instructions. Install is not too bad, about an hour. To give you an idea what the finished product looks like we turned on the hazards on our test car here. As you can see the pattern is moving a little quick, so if that’s really not your speed, then you can combine it with Raxiom’s turn signal modifier, basically what this does is slow the pattern down giving you a much more dramatic effect. If you want to achieve that retro look with the modern flair then you want to check out the splice in sequential tail light kit for your 96-2004 V6 and GT Mustang.
Technical Note. These Sequential Tail Lights will not work with LED replacement taillights or on SVT Cobras with the rear amber turn signals.
Fitment: 1996 1997 1998 1999 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 Details
Installation Time: (approx) 1 Hour
Difficulty Level:Light to Moderate mechanical skill required.
Does not fit 1999-2001 SVT Cobras
The only reason I'm giving this 4 stars is because of the stupid wire nuts and Scotch locks that come with the kit. This is a Mustang, not a house. I soldered with heat shrink in less than an hour and ... it's a much cleaner and reliable install. That said they look great and everyone at work(I'm a Ford tech) thinks they look sweet. Totally reminds me of the old Shelby's. Makes me want to use my signals more.
Kit is easy! Looks GREAT, only one small problem, and its not even a problem..when making a hole in the seal for the light socket to insert the white wire into the major wire socket, feed the tip of the ... wire thru the seal then insert into the light socket. The instructions tell you not to cut the seal but instead to make a hole to insure a good seal on new wire.Just a FYI..Agian great product!!!!
whats the difference in this kit vs the Raxiom Sequential Tail Light Kit - Plug-in
This kit requires you to splice the sequence module into your existing factory harness yourself. It's not too much work for anyone with some electrical experience or the right skills. The Plug-In kit is completely plug and play though, it's a full replacement harness. You just unplug your old tail light harness and replace it with the Raxiom harness.
is this what i need for my 04 mustang gt to look like the new mustangs turn sequential's?
yes this will make it look like the newer mustang as well as the 69 mustangs
This kit came installed when I bought my Mach 1. I recently installed some LED bulbs in the back. Was wondering if it still needs some resistors? I have regular incandescent bulbs in front and LED's in the back. I bought the Raxiom modified LED flasher but it still seems to blink too fast. Also is this sequential kit compatible with the Raxiom Icon LED Taillights?
If the Tail Lights are still hyper flashing, you may need to add in resistors. This Harness will work perfectly with the Raxiom Icon LED Tail Light (99-04 All, Excludes 99-01 Cobra), item # 100807, (http://www.americanmuscle.com/raxiom-icon-led-taillights.html).
Does this kit come with what is needed for both taillights or is it required to buy two?
The Sequential Tail Light Kit - Cut-and-Splice (96-04 All; Excludes 99-01 Cobra) will come with everything that you need for both driver's and passenger's side taillights. This kit comes with 2 light modules as well as 2 wire connectors.
Is there a chance this will fit on my 1995 Mustang GT?
If you were to combine these sequential lights with a compatible set of 96-98 tail lights, you could install both on your 1995 GT without issue. I've attached a pair of tail lights below you could take a look at for an example. Hope this helps!
Is the sequential taillight kit compatible with the three bar LED replacement brake lights?
Unfortunately, the sequential harnesses are not compatible with any LED replacement tail lights or any SVT Cobra's with the rear amber turn signals.
Installation Time:Less than 1 Hour

Amazing product, came on time, and easy to install. Took all of 30 min with myself and a buddy with some wiring experience. The best advise I can give is that there is a step by step video instruction on Youtube that helped greatly. I would reccoment this product to anyone that owns or ever plans to own a Mustang of any year. I put this on at a garage, and saw three different people point it out on the way home.

well worth it
This is probably is best visual mod you can do to any mustang. You have to be comfortable with wires but its an easy install. The coolest part is when you brake, it sequences too, which is better than the new '11 sequential lights. Get it

I love it. American Muscle never disappoints.
I took the two tail lights off and went to the smooth carpet on my room and installed them both in about 20 minutes. I fell asleep next to them that night. HA! Next morning I put the tail lights back on and I was grabbing all the attention in the road. People let you in front of them more often, they are more corteous if you're switching lanes with your turn signal, they don't tailgate as much anymore, you just gotta tap your brake and hold it for about a second and most just stay back. I could keep on going! And the coolness factor is incredible. It's not like a lightened-up HONDA. It's making the lights already in your MUSTANG even more attractive. I loved it, would definitely recommend! Thanks AM! Quick note: Make sure the tab on the white wire sits all the way down in the socket, or you WILL have problems!

Sequential Tail Lights
This is one of the best products for my 01 GT that i have ever purchased! Although the installation was difficult, the outcome is amazing. I can always see people behind me that point out my sequentials with an "ooh." I would highly recomend this product because for the price it was well worth the money that i paid for it.

Dont purchase these
Dont anyone spen your money on these kits, because I want them all for myself. I saw the 2011 tail lights a month ago and I was hooked. They are cool and easy to install. The breaklight feature was a surprise. I installed them on my drop top GT. I used the splice in kit and found the directions to be on-the-mark. Helpful hint: As the directions say, use a pair of needle nose to push the pigtail connector into place. Make sure it is the same depth as the original ones already in the socket. I sprayed a small amount of WD 40 on the pigtail end and the connector pushed in with ease. I cirle-filed the quick connectors right away and used solder and heat srink to make the connections look factory and to ensure I got good solid connections. Great product and a great price.

I was a little hesitant on buying this kit because it was splice in and not plug in play, but honestly it was pretty easy, the instruction were super easy to follow and the only thing i plan to change are the wire nuts, eventually i will solder and shrinkwrap, but that didnt affect the product,these tail lights are cool,easy to install and the kit is cheaper than plug in play

Easy, please read for hints
I freakin love these. They look old school and remind me of the 70's muscle cars. Installation was pretty easy. The instructions were very accurate. The only problem I had was the splice itself. Just a hint, when splicing the red wires with the turn signals, as well as splicing the black wires together, make sure you punch the metal plate all the way through the wires. The metal plate, when properly applied, will be flush with the top of the red splice piece, then clamp. Do not clamp the splice in an attempt to punch the metal plate through. The first one took me about an hour to do, but once I knew the trick, the second set of wires went in and took me no longer than 10 minutes from beginning to end. It is so easy, and I love them so much. I almost drove home from where I worked on it, about fifteen miles away with the hazard lights on because I loved them so much. This is a great add to any mustang, and I would give it six stats if I could.

Awesome look, Not so easy install
Not the easiest thing to install, however anyone could do it with enough time. Took a friend and me about an hour and a half or so. The lights look amazing and is a must, i believe, for a Mustang! You will not/CAN NOT be disapointed if you purchase and install these.

They look awesome, but I don't agree that they were easy to install...they were a pain and it took quite awhile to get done, and I'm no idiot. But, Im glad I installed them, now I use my signals!

Easy to install and wire, Only took about 50 Minutes.. Just read the instructions and make sure you have all the tools needed to preform the installation you should have no problems! Posting a link to a short 30 sec video if you want to see the result. http://s37.photobucket.com/albums/e93/Crazedxx/?action=view¤t=0819002035.mp4

Excellent Product. Very fun to install.
Great product from Raxiom. Install was very simple and can be done with just a simple socket set. Would take just as long to install as doing the plug and play method. cut and splice in my opinion is also way Cleaner if you do it right in the end. Looks Great! i recommend the Raxiom turn signal flasher as well.

Frustrating installation but Great modification
Now don’t get me wrong, I am glad I bought it. It looks great. HOWEVER… Installation was a little more difficult for a novice like me. The instructions although informative, were unprofessional cheesy looking photo copies from a 1982 Xerox machine. The part they call a “quick splice connector” leaves a lot to be desired. On one of my connections it didn’t cut all the way through the plastic coating on the wire therefore not making a connection so the lights did not come on. I had to take it off and strip the wire and then reattach it. The mark up on this product has to be incredible. All you get is about $2.00 (if that) worth of wire and wire nuts. But somehow it works. Buy it. It looks great.

This is totally a head turner my pony now gets more looks that afternoon I installed them I went for a cruise and of course I ran to a couple of 99-04 stangs. The only question was how did you do that and as the light turned green I yelled out as I faded into the asphalt American Muscle .Com Thanx AM you good

Zach V's 98 Stang
This product was a pain to attempt to install. I spent almost three hours trying different options to wire and I reviewed the instructions about 10 times. I also went to another product review and watched a video of installation and he did the same as I but mine did not work. I call AmericanMuscle and they were great! They quickly answered me and put me in a defective order immediately. I was very impressed and now I waiting for my re-order and to send back the originals. I hope I get them to work because I really like the sequential lights. Wish me luck please!

wow, this is a must
the first one took 3x as long as the second one, and i don't recommend installing these while drinking haha. they look great, work great, i think it's a must for any V8 mustang, forget the V6's...
