As some of you have heard, the sequential turn signals are "the thing to do"
I myself have wanted to do this project for some time but never really had the time to sit down and work on it. Well here it is in all it's glory.
Here are the things you will need to buy.. and where to buy them.
- Two 3157 3-wire bulb sockets P# 85881 found at AutoZone,Shucks,Baxter's etc... for $7.99 each
- 1 STS-2S Sequential Turn Signal kit found at WebElectric Products - 2005 2006 2007 Mustang Sequential Turn Signals, Taillights, Tail Lights, Pulsing Brake Light Pulser Flasher, Dynamite Stick Sequential, Daytime Running Lights, Light Bar Switch, Styling Bar Switch, Dome Light Dimmer (Theatre Li for $49.00
- Two packs(4 lights total) of 24 LED Super Refractor found at - V-LEDS.COM for $14.99each pack + shipping for white
$12.99each pack + shipping for amber or red
- One pack (2 resistors) found at - V-LEDS.COM for $9.99
The last two bullets are TOTALLY OPTIONAL! I just wanted to get the LEDS in there.
Once you get all of the necessary equipment, here are the following tools you will need:
I first started by taking the turn light harness from the truck and marking the outside socket with tape. I laid it out and removed the stock bulbs from it.
Next, I laid out the "new" socket, and made sure I could read which wire was labeled what.
Next, I found the blue wire coming from the outside socket, and cut it up by the harness plug leaving enough wire at either side to use. This will be the ONLY WIRE CUT during this install.
Next I took the Cut blue wire still connected to the Stock Harness Plug, as well as the Red wire from the STS module, and the Black wire in the "A" spot on the new socket and screw tapped them all together.
Next, I took the white wire from the STS module, and screw tapped it with the other cut blue wire, the side that is still connected to the Stock outside plug.
The next step I took, was to take the "old" inside socket and locate the brown wire. Use the red t-tap supplied with the STS Module to tap into the Brown wire, and also connecting the "B" wire from the "new" inside socket to the same t-tap.
Next, grab the black wire from the STS module and run it ALL THE WAY THROUGH one side of the red t-tap, leaving the other side to splice into another wire...
once you get the black wire from the STS module through the red t-tap, grab the black "G" wire from the "new socket, and screw tap those two wires together. There still should be another side of the t-tap that isn't used.
Locate the Black wire on the "old" inside socket (next to the brown one we just tapped) and use the other side of the red t-tap to connect the black STS and the black "G" wire to it.
At this point, put your new LED bulbs in, one in the stock outside socket, and one in the "new" inside socket. All of you wires should be connected and look something like this...

If you do run LED's, you need to use the Load Resistors listed above. Here is the diagram on how to wire them up.
And here is a final pic of the Module installed on the truck. I drilled a tiny hole in the Rad Core Support to screw the Resistor to it.
Copy and redo for the opposite side DRL/Turn signal.
Any questions feel free to ask. Ill leave u with a videos. Will take some more when I have the time.
