Webelectric Splice-in Sequential Tail Light Kit Report


Recommended Posts

I thought I would take a minute to report my results.

 

I had a plug in kit from American Muscle but didn't like the fact that the brake lights and turn lights were BOTH sequential. I sold that set on eBay and bought a new splice-in kit direct from the Webelectric website. They were considerably less money, and though I was concerned about the wiring quality, everything was actually very good. The install was quite simple as well.

 

For the $70 this kit cost, I have no concern about the ability to go back to stock, and I could get junk yard harnesses to do that if I had to. The only splicing is on the external harness on the light housings. The factory wiring that is permanent in the trunk is not affected.

 

I didn't use the twist on connectors, but rather took a few minutes to solder all connections and then tape wrapped everything well.

 

It was super easy and the lights work beautifully. I would not hesitate to use this reasonably priced splice-in kit again. Very nice.

 

One thing that is cool is that this kit can be setup to sequence the brake lights too, or not, your choice. The choice to stop the sequence for braking only requires two extra included wires be run from the trunk to the passenger kick panel (and can easily have a switch added so that the feature can be enabled or disabled at will.)

 

Ironically, after installing them I sort of like the brake sequence in addition to the signals and may just leave them alone.

 

Very nice kit for the money and a fun little feature.

Just curious as to why you would do this mod at all if you don't like the 'sequencing' effect of the tail lights? Does it give some other benifit I am unaware of?

 

BTW - I have a 'plug-n-play' set installed in my car. The only problem with this mod is that, as the driver, you never get to see how cool they look. B)

Most kits sequence once when you hit the brakes in addition to the sequence of the turn lights.

 

These have the ability to ONLY sequence with the turn lights. The brake lights just come on all at once as is stock ( except for the added 3rd brake bulb. They are switchable to use either way.

 

I only wanted the signal to sequence, NOT the brake lights too. Though I kind of like them as is. A switch can be added so you can choose either way from the cockpit. Very simple and good quality kit for the money.

I bought the complete wiring kit with OEM sockets. Some States do not permit the brakes lights to sequence even once, that is why he changed his design to allow the buyer to decide if they want the brake lights to sequence once then stay red or use the supplied cable to set it up like the 2013 Mustangs.

Thanks for the write up. I do not like the brake light sequencing, so this is good to know.

 

 

It seemed funny that it was hard to get info on the kits that are available out there today. I was a little surprised to find that this kit requires a pair of wires be run to the front passenger footwell to kill the braking sequential for example. I would have assumed them to be more like the Perfectflash brand that has the phone cord that goes between the modules in the trunk. It would definitely be nice to know stuff like this before ordering.

 

I had spent time researching the various brands here and elsewhere, and the ones with the ability to cancel the sequence when braking were definitely harder to find info on.

 

Anyway, I am very happy with them and would buy the same set again in a heartbeat. I think they were actually $79 with free shipping through the mfrs website, and they have a lifetime warranty so that is pretty hard to beat. I hope the post helps someone out trying to make a similar decision.

Yea, I have actually decided I like the brake sequence. This summer, I will go ahead and wire in the harness to the front to kill the brake sequence, but I will add a small switch so I can run it either way.

 

I like the idea of letting it sequence for brakes and turns both on the street, but being able to have full instant on brake lights for track days.

 

Great product at this price!

Looking at the Webelectric website, apparently they sell two kits. One is the splice-in kit at $79.95; the other is a pre-wired system for $139.95.

Yea, I was concerned about the splice in kits as everyone seems to be so concerned about cutting the car. I would do it again. They are super easy to install between the plug in lamps and the plugs for the harness to the car. Nice deal.
