Sequential Tail Lights for 03 GT

I wanna order the wife some and I need an opinion between the 3 different priced ones on American Muscle. There's the 2 Raxiom ($230 and $139) and the off brand "cut-and-splice". Has anyone had any problems or recommend a certain one? And is the flasher worth the buy?

Make sure you get the relay too, its $50 and that sucks but if you are going to do it, do it right. Without the relay the lights will flash really effing fast. With it they'll still flash faster than a new Coyote style but not super fast either.

I got my splice in kit from these guys:
Mustang Taillight Sequencers |Tail Light Sequencers | Sequential

I chose the slow blink model because I prefer that one.

Instructions were easy to follow and it worked fine.
I did solder the connections to the harness except for the modules which plug in via spade connectors and need to be removed should you have to replace the bulbs. I'm not a fan of those inline splice blocks.

Make sure you buy new bulbs and some bulb grease so you are factory fresh when you re-install the tail lights.

BTW I get a lot of compliments on it from other Mustang drivers.

Plug N Play will definitely save you some time!
Good luck !

Damn, I need to look into this company. $65 for the slow kit? P&P is nice but not sure if its $100 nicer especially since I can solder/splice just fine.

^ You hit the nail on the head. There is (3) different style harnesses. They'll all definitely do the trick and will work just fine!

Let us know what you decided to go with and if you need any assistance!

I work with a guy who bought the plug n play kit for his 98 GT and didn't buy the relay. Their so fast that their pointless. Other than that the kit went together fine he says and it was easy to do. He bought from American muscle.

Yeah, we always recommend purchasing the relay. The taillights will blink super fast without them! That's listed on the product page.

Thanks for pointing this out, though!

Thanks guys, ordering right now with the flasher. I wouldn't mind the cut n splice but I think she'd feel more comfortable with the plug n play, that's her baby lol

The kit I posted includes the delay modules, tie wraps, splice blocks and the flasher needed to make it all work.
I tried it without the flasher and it was super fast. Sucked.

Only gotcha with the kit I mentioned is the instructions tell you to just "connect" the xxxx wires to the yyyy wires. I don't remember the specifics, but if you do it wrong the lights don't sequence incorrectly. Just reverse the wires and you are fine.
I got one side correct and the other wrong.
Easy fix.

Finally gandered at that above site from my home computer vs on lunch at work. Wow... $65 for this kit that goes nice and slow like a Coyote or $200+ for the Raxiom stuff... that's a hard one lol. Yeah so I have to do a little cutting and splicing. Oh no.

That's how I feel scotty, but since it's the wife's car, I'll just do the little extra to keep her happy. It was mine I'd go with the cut and splice and buy more things on my list! Lol

I'd save the $100 and just do it while she is watching TV or whatever. Is she going to be like, inspecting you as you go? End result will be the same. Unless you are worried about YOU screwing something up... then that's a different story lol.

The trick to running LEDs is to install 2 6 ohm resistors on each side across the signal wire. AM Includes only 2 resistors instead of 4. Another thing is the wires on the resistors are too small for the crimp to make contact. 3rd the user instructions on the AM website show the resistors installed on the wrong wire it should be on the signal wire. So you have 3 things against you so you would buy their flasher.
You can modify the flasher further by soldering a 1 to 2uf capacitor on the existing 3.3uf. They also sell 3 ohm resistors that that simulate current used by 2 bulbs. If you don't get the resistor than you have to add a 4.7uf cap to the 3.3 uf to get slower rate. But your Hazards are going to run twice as slow since they are on a different circuit.
