Side Mirror Puddle Lights 2013/2014


Recommended Posts

Hi, I am trying to find out what the connector model number is to do the conversion of the 2013/2014 Puddle lights to a 2010, on another forum they list the connector to the Later model donor mirror is WPT-945 a 8 pin connector, there are several topics on this, and with positive outcome.

 

Would anyone have access to confirm the number as everything I find on the model number states that is for the switch,not for the actual housing connector?

 

Being from Australia, I would need to purchase the two connector pigtails for left and right mirrors, and that can be very expensive when adding the postage and no return available if they are wrong.

 

The picture is of the mirror,I require the connector to fit that.

Hi,

No not as yet, I pulled the pin and bought the two pigtails and a step down converter to reduce the 12volts to 6 volts, as apparently the led OEM puddle lights are only 6 volts, so I will be the pioneer and let you know the outcome.

 

I Purchased a brand new pair of 2014 right and left mirrors that came in a comfort package from a wrecked Mustang that never got out of the factory, so it also has the defrost mirror option as well, depending on your location, there is the opportunity to possibly hook up the mirrors to your rear defrost if you can locate a pair.

 

Also on the other forum they talk about the led puddle lights are susceptible to moisture so I intend to seal them with some silicone sealant before completion.

The Motorcraft WPT-945 8 pin connectors arrived today, checked them to the connector on the 2013 Mirror, perfect fit,so I will use these left and right on the mirrors to work the mirror motor and the puddle lights, not the heated mirror.

 

Most likely cut off the 2010 connectors to the mirror splice in the wiring to the WPT-945, then splice on the new wiring to the puddle lights,I prefer to use (Red Shrink Connectors:diameter 3.0 mm, cable cross-section 0.5-1.0 mm² rather than the bulky scotch locks due to space and reliability and positive connection) then run the wiring up to the map light,this would be the safest option, due to the left to right conversion as the wiring is now not in its original location.

 

Here is the wiring codes to look for :-

 

2013 mirror has 7 wire connector

05-12 mirror has 3 wire connector

2013 Wire Colors:

Black, Green/Purple - Heating Elements
Black/White, Gray - Puddle Lamp
Yellow, Red, Blue - Mirror Motor

05-11 Wire Colors:

Yellow, Red, Blue - Mirror Motor

 

connect the 2 new wires to the black and white wires of the interior map bulbs. (Gray wire from mirror to Black wire at map light, Black/White wire from mirror to White wire at map light)

 

 

I hope this helps
