    No more slow, dim, undependable taillights!

    This solid state sequential kit eliminates all the mechanical motor-driven sequencers and relays used in the trunks of the 1967 - 1968 Cougars. One system module replaces all these parts found in the Cougar trunk: Sequential flasher and motor (the noisy one), directional relay (the big one) and the emergency relay (5 pin). It plugs into the original wiring harness and mounts in the original location without any modifications! These units never fail as they are solid state. We have sold hundreds of them with no problems. Comes with three year warranty.

    "Hi Don,
    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you and to let you know what a GREAT product the solid state directional unit that mounts in the trunk of the 1968 Cougar is!! It took me less than ten minutes to install and it fixed ALL the problems that I was having with my directionals, which were numerous, ranging from sometimes working to two lights or just one light flashing on each side to the directionals not working at all when the headlights were turned on. Anyway, to make a long story short, I am VERY HAPPY with the product and would advise anyone with a 67-68 Cougar and probably the later ones too, to buy this product right now and save themselves a ton of headaches.

    Thanks again for always having the solution to my car problems!"

    -Charles T.

    When I installed this switch, the original one with the motor worked. Still, I figured better sooner then later. The new solid state turn signal I got under the dash helped the original part work much better. Yes, the new one does in fact plug in....mostly.

    That slim blue wire will simply not stay put in that socket no matter how much electric tape you try to put in. I found a very small stainless sheet metal screw and held it in that way. It would be better to include an optional quick splice terminal such as one of those Dorman ones that Autozone has in case it won't stay put on its own.

    The bulbs can also become unseated easily and may not all light up when you put it in. Take each bulb out. Make sure it isn't burned. Make sure its seated in the socket and that the socket is seated in the harness. Taking off the harness first makes it easier to change the bulb. Lots of fiddling around is required. One side was fine, the other kept acting up until I got the bulbs seated JUST right.

    One other oddity that I noticed is how the hazard blinker behaves. If the turn signal is centered, neither left or right, and you put on the hazard blinker, the middle 2 lights flash only on each side. There is nothing wrong with this. The bulbs are symmetrical and street legal that way. If you put on the hazard blinker and the turn signal rod is either left or right, you'll get the full effect of the flash sequence going down on both sides.

    Maybe one setting is for driving in fog and the other is for actually being parked beside the road, but the owners manual (I have the original 1968 manual) says nothing about this whatsoever.

    Pros:
    • fairly straightforward installation
    Cons:
    • little blue wire fits real loose

    I am in no way an electrician so this product was engendered for folks like me. I believe that there is no way to install this product incorrectly. It worked flawlessly the 1st time I checked it and has not failed since. I would definitely recommend this to anyone with signal issues. Couldn't be happier!

    Pros:
    • Easy installation
    Cons:
    • None

    This made a world of positive difference in the operation of my rear sequential turn signals. Nice proper cycling of the flashers; weak/lazy cycling is gone! Works great with the plasma LED bulbs. 'Can recommend this product to others.
