2007 Mustang GT center light grill wire problem.

Have an 07GT with center light grill. On the way to work at 3:30am yesterday kept noticing light's dim then go bright. we'll the wire extension's are loose and no good every time i hit a bump they flicker. Has anyone cut the factory socket and extended the factory wire's? Or doe's anyone know the proper plug size to plug into factory side and light bulb side? To make my own extension's.

The current female connector to the lamp should be available with a pigtail from your dealer. I believe it's Motorcraft part number WPT-148.

This would be the male side to emulate the bulb:

9145 Male Headlight Light Bulb Socket Connector - eBay (item 220416824168 end time Sep-09-10 18:04:38 PDT)


However, this entire assembly should work:

HID EXTENSION CABLES,CONNECTORS 9005/9006/H10/9140/9145: eBay Motors (item 120612065600 end time Sep-20-10 17:06:30 PDT)

Thank's for the help. Looked at the extension cable's you listed on e-bay. The problem is the yellow end's are the same on the extension's already in the car. they don't set well and cause the light's to flicker going over bump's.

You're quite welcome.

I guess if those do not work well, then you could replace the yellow ends with the Motorcraft WPT-148 connectors I mentioned.

You might also be able to dissassemble the connectors you have and bend the insides of terminal contacts to make a better connection.
