    At last, there's a solution to a problem that almost all early Cougars suffer from. If the turn signal indicators in your dash only blink once, and then pulsate slowly without going out, you need this new electronic relay. It's a direct plug-and-play replacement, and it will give your indicators a nice on-off flash, complete with a mechanical click sound, all in time with your turn signals. We're excited about this simple fix; it's great to see and hear the indicators working properly.

    The number stamped on your original mechanical relay will be C8WB-13A366-A or C8WB-13A366-C, the Ford part number this unit replaces is C8WY-13A366-A or C8WY-13A366-C.


    Check out this quick before-and-after video demonstration:



    This is referred to as the "K5" relay in the Ford service manual. This relay causes the flashing action of the 1968 Mercury Cougar instrument panel indicator lights.

    *CAUTION* The 1967 and 1968 K7 relay look similar, but are not the same. Damage to your wiring system will occur with the wrong relay.

    I had a hard time accepting the cost of this relay simply for the turn signal "click" and bulb illumination but I must say its worth it! You take for granted how nice it is to be able to have a functioning turn signal light and audible click to remind you your turn signal is on. This relay is a must have if you go with the plasma LED taillight bulbs which again are another huge upgrade that is worth every penny. With LEDs and the stock K5 relay your turn signal indicator isnt audible and solidly lit when activated but does not flash. This relay solves both those issues and a must have with LED bulbs. Made in the USA!

    This really brought the click-click back into my dashboard turn signal indicators. For some odd reason, the tilt away steering wheel also started flipping to the right on its own. Before you'd have to push it that way. Who knew that they were related? Also, if anything else is grounded to or around this switch, be sure it stays that way.
