The D0WY-15A434-LSM LED Side Marker Light Adapter kit is required when the C9WY-13A366-AL or the TS-400 Sequential controller is installed with LED front turn signal and LED side marker bulbs on most 1970 and up Ford vehicles. An adapter is required for each side marker light (4 total). This adapter solves the problem where the side marker voltage feeds back through the front turn signal bulb when the running lights or headlights are turned on. When this happens all the rear bulbs may flash together or it may trigger the opposite side to turn on. It solves this problem by providing a direct ground path for each side marker light. Four LED bulbs (two red and two yellow) are included. These adapters maintain the original Ford factory function of the side maker lights:
1. Light up solid when the headlights or parking lights are on;
2. Flash in unison with the front turn signal when the headlights or parking lights are off;
3. Flash alternating with the front turn signal when the headlights or parking lights on.
WARRANTY: The adapter kit is covered by a limited warranty for two years after purchase. Should the unit fail during this warranty period, it will be repaired or replaced upon prepaid return to your dealer. This limited warranty does not include repair of damage to the unit resulting from accident, disaster, misuse, abuse, unauthorized modifications or any use beyond normal operating conditions. This warranty excludes any coverage for incidental or consequential damages.
1970 Cougar owners: This is one of the components that you'll need in order to use our Plasma LED taillight bulbs in your car with the sequential turn signal system.
Here's a bit of helpful information from our supplier:
If just the rear tail light bulbs are changed to Plasma LED bulbs, the system will work correctly as long as the controller/flashers are the LED compatible.
The problem is the way the 1970-71 side marker lights are grounded through the front turn signal bulb element.
If 1157 bulbs are retained up front, incandescent side marker lights will light up correctly and the LED sequential controller will ignore the feedback voltage caused by the unique grounding setup.
If the side marker lights are changed to LED, the side marker light adapters are required.
If the front bulbs are changed to LED, the side marker light adapters are required because the front LED bulbs get switched on by the side marker light ground current.
