I might have to read over this again. With this kit you shouldnt need to do all of this. The rear harness has all the wires you need then splice when require for parkers etc.

George, the potential complication comes because he is changing lights around from factory.

All good George. I'm terrible at explaining things. Most times at work I have a white board and a thousand coloured markers to draw pictures- as I normally verbalise in retardese.

Sorry when I read leds I thought they were just led bulbs not a full led panel kit.

Saying that my car arrived to me with 67 led rear panels and the wiring wasnt complicated as this kit seems to be.. it just had each wire as per normal bulb setup. I wonder why this is different. Nonetheless im sure with the guys on here will help u sort it.

Could you take photo for me mate? I'm pretty sure I've got it squared away ( probably not ) but it'd be good to see how other AAW kit users have theirs setup

Sorry my car is in the shop..but im using standard bulbs on mine so ita straight forware wiring.. but im uaong shelby/cougar rears. The led panels I have are boxed away.

I didn't really use the aaw rear diagram as gospel just a guide. The rear harness wiring for bulbs Is straight fwd. Left right turn, parker, backup light. So just route appropriately and splice parker and backup appropriately and ground appropriately.. for bulbs.. not sure about your LED kit.

Okay guys! Had a win! I'll post I peccary what I did in another post so people looking to do this particular mod / setup.
Thanks to everyone for all you help! It's always greatly appreciated!!
I think the last thing I've got to do is put in a LED flasher unit as I'm only getting one ( RHS ) indicator at the rear.

I have the mustang project led kit in mine, but its 66. Not sure how different they are. Mine came with an electronic flasher. That should be all you need.

However, if one flashes they all should.

Hmm funny I didn't get a flasher with mine.
Ah crap, another thing I've got to sort out..
Well, I've got power, good connections and of I wire it one way, the white park light flashes. Wonder if it's a faulty unit?

I don't think I was on the same page with what you have.
So you have an integrated backup/indicator light kit that goes into the original backup light location? And your tail lights will only be stop/tail now?

Can you explain what you have done so far?
And can you point me to either Stephs or Mustang Projects website for exactly what you have?

Okay,

So I have the Mustang Project indicator / reverse light LED kit.
Also, the Mustang Project Led Brake Light kit.

The indicator / reverse is mounted within the original backup light housing, and connects into the existing lamp assembly.

Therefore it has a Black and Red, and two black wires running from it, into the boot space that then is hooked up into the AAW harness.

So the way Ive got it wired right now.
I disconnected the brake light switch wire, and ran a single wire from the Brake Light Switch to the boot. This wire then connects up to the LHS indicator and the RHS brake light.

The existing tail light ( stop / brake light wire ) goes to the LHS Brake light, but the RHS indicator.

I don't know why that is, but if I wire it the other way alllll kinds of funky shit happens...

So I have the indicators / reverse lights hooked up as follows.

LHS indicator to BLK/RED wire, LHS reverse to BLK signal wire

RHS indicator to BLK/RED wire, LHS reverse to BLK signal wire.

Im left with two wires, which I assume are grounds, that I've not earthed out yet.

So I have red running lights, brake lights when brake depressed, white backup / reverse lights, but only RHS indicator.

If I wire the LHS differently I get flashing white for indicator...

Ok here is what I would do.
Get your indicator/backup lights and connect them up to 12V.
Being LED, they can only be hooked up one way.

You need to find out which ones are positive and ground. The colours would suggest that BLK/RED would be positive and the blacks would be ground, but usually you would share a ground, so there would only be one.

I disconnected the brake light switch wire, and ran a single wire from the Brake Light Switch to the boot. This wire then connects up to the LHS indicator and the RHS brake light.


This doesn't make sense to me. With the regular light setup there was some strange stuff because of the shared stop/indicator lights. But you're no longer sharing those, so the way I see it - the wire that comes from your brake switch should go to BOTH brake lights - not one brake and one indicator.

Your yellow and dk green should now go down to the backup lamps for your indicators (amber LEDs).
Your Lt green should loop to both backup lamps for your backup lights (White LEDs).
Your brown wire should loop between each tail light, side markers (if used) and the number plate light.

That should be all the lights covered.

Remember - LEDs are polarity sensitive, so if you get your positives and grounds wrong, they will not work.

Hybrid! You'll be glad to know that I finally un-f*&ked myself and got it sorted out!

Turned out that the RHS bulb connector wasn't engaging the LED bulb, so was lacking a good connection, thus no turn signal.

Bit o WD-40 and some jabbing with a screw driver and now im getting a good connection, and full turn signals!!

One step closer to driving the wheels of her!!
