Secret is to find a donor 500 that has the same factory options as your Montego and move the fuse panel under the dash (aka SJB) All turn/brake functions and a a lot more are now co...

The secret is to get the SJB from a donor car that has matching ...

Re: 2005 Mercury Montego- Switch rear tail light to Ford 500

Note: I reiterate the SJB worked perfectly when plugged in NO Dealer programming required. The secret is to find a 500 with your exact options package to pull the SJB out of. Also make sure to check all fuses on the donor unit sometimes they can get blown in a crash (like a vehicle in a junk yard LO...

Re: 2005 Mercury Montego- Switch rear tail light to Ford 500

OK I had a problem with the 3 to 2 wire converters. They make it work (Kind Of) but the incandescent bulbs were dim and if you hit the brake while the turn signal was on the blinker started a fast blink. NOT ACCEPTABLE. I went back to the salvage yard and found a 2005 Ford 500 that had identical opt...

Re: 2005 Mercury Montego- Switch rear tail light to Ford 500

For people wanting to do this Ford Five hundred "bulb type" tail light swap into a Montego LED system. The Montego utilizes a separate wire for brakes and turn signals that is the reason for the 5 wires on the Mercury LED light pigtail. The 500 tail light assembly uses one wire for both turn and bra...
