Sequentials

Ordered my wire harness (webelectronics) late Wed afternoon, shipped on Thurs, arrived and installed on Sat. Lov'em. Only have one complaint and it has nothing to do with the product or the install. I'm gonna hate it when a bulb burns out. A lot of work to replace a bulb. Guess Ford thought the bulbs would last forever. Wouldn't it be nice if there was an access panel to reach the sockets.

THe bulb replacement is a b%@&*ch. The thing is, it is a less expesive car because of those missed details. I've had my sequentials for at least six months without any probs.

HADES YES!!!! I scraped up my knuckles, practiced my cursing and who has a 7/16 inch deep socket?!?! Not me, apparrently. But now I do. Did you break those little pop-in dealies, that hold the big, honkin' plastic panel across the whole back of the car? I did... [POP] followed by several bouncing sounds then silence and the little pop-in plugs are gone forever. I am sure they are about a penny apiece but still.... Like you said, couldn't there be an access panel?!?!

So much easier once you guillotine the pop-in plugs and get it over with. They are better decapitated anyway.

"Let that be a lesson to the rest of you car parts!!"

I put their little heads up on toothpicks, in the trunk to show what happens to auto parts that "dis" me.

I have a question while we're talking about the sequentials... They only do what they are supposed to do when using your turn signals and 4-ways, not when pressing the brakes, right? If they alternated lights while braking, I would not like that, but if its just the turn signals and 4-ways, I would like to get them. Thanks in advance for shedding light on this.

When you first hit the brakes, the sequence once, very fast. I like it. I thought I wouldn't but changed my mind after I saw them. The blinkers *really* get looks. You can see people pointing and talking about them, in the cars behind you.

I saw an old guy hit his wife on the arm and point. I read "Hey look!" on his lips. I could tell by her face that she didn't care one, tiny bit. Maybe even less than that, but NASA doesn't even have devices sensitive enough to measure how much most women care about car details.

My girlfriend told me I could tell her all about spark-plug heat-ranges sometime if she had that deadly thing where you can't fall asleep at all [fatal familial insomnia]. She's sure that would cure her if she ever got it.

Here is a vid I made of mine. You can wire it so the brake lights don't sequence if you want.

So when you have made the sequential mod, do all three light bars illuminate when you brake??

If so I am placing an order Monday.

Yes, you can wire them to sequence on braking or all 3 lights come on simultaneously.

I followed the instructions to override the one blink on braking so it functioned as stock (all on). Not difficult, but I did splice into the wrong wire on the first try. It involves running a wire from the trunk through the car to the loom on the front passenger kick-panel area.

Be Carefull Removing Plugs

Webelectrics will refund a 40 dollar core if you return the stock harness in mint condition. I broke one of the little legs that hold it in place due to the difficulty (or the ignorance of the delicacy) when trying to twist them off. I guess I have a back-up now if anything goes wrong with my sequencials.

I really wanted the 40 bucks though .

I also broke those lil black plastic keeper pin thingies. One was missing by the trunk latch on the back panel so only had to break 3 instead of 4. Mine ended up in the spare tire well where they will remain hopefully lost forever. It took me about 45 min to install the harness. I used a wrench instead of a deep socket to loosen the nuts, then spun them off with fingers. I could have bought the cheaper kit and did the wiring myself, but glad I bought the plug-n-play harness since the temp here was in the single digits. Now the only thing I need to decide on is whether or not to keep the OE harness.

Glad I'm not the only one. There is probably a technique that body shop guys use. Or maybe they just break them too?

Here too. Man, it was cold that day. However, my dryer vent can be directed to the garage I turned on the dryer, with nothing in it, for about twenty minutes before going out there. Ahhhhh.

Sounds like a conspiracy theory here...

Or is it just one of those moments when all it takes is for one man to admit to a fault (real or as always, imaginary) to open the floodgates of........SHARING!!!!
