LED Exterior Lighting

Called Ford dealership locally, asked them about setting the computer in my 2008 F250 so that I can replace all brake, turn signal exterior lights with LED bulbs, and he said he knew nothing about it.

Basically all they have to do is make it so the computer doesnt recognize that a bulb is out and the LED's will function correctly for turn signals and everything.

I wish this could just be done on like an H&S tuner. Ford dealer seems clueless. I like the LED lighting way better than the stock bulbs.

Ford Fleet.com even has a step by step for the dealerships if I recall correctly.

If you can print out the instruction, I would go directly to a tech and ask him to do it. I'd do it for someone at my dealership if they did. Throw him a few bucks and done.

Re: LED Exterior Lighting

Usually if you replace the front and rear lights with LED, they will function normal. If you only replace the front or rear than it will act as if there is a bulb burnt out by flashing faster.

Really? I was not aware of that. May have to give that a try.

For the taillights and third brake light ebay is good, thats where I got mine. I also got my clear led reverse lights off of there and they work great also. For cab lights I bought my led 194 replacement bulbs from retro-solutions but that is because I wanted amber LEDs and I bought my clear LED license plate lights from retro solutions too. I love LEDs they look way better and are way brighter. I didnt have any problems with all my LEDs installed and I also still have factory front turn signal bulbs
