Did this mod this weekend on my 05 zx3 ses, worked perfectly. I still have the stock tail lights in, I wanted to make sure this worked before ordering the euro set, but with a set of amber bulbs installed in the back up lamp sockets it looks pretty good! I was worried it wouldnt look amber enough because of the clear housing.
I dont mind going without back up lights for a while because I have a rear view camera installed and I didnt think the lights would be a big deal. Visibility aside however, in crowded areas like parking lots the lights are an important safety factor and thats when I wish I had them still.
I love the amber blinkers and having the blinkers separated from the tail lights tho. The mod was done in a couple hours or less with no issues. Thanks to all who contributed info - now to get a reverse light mounted somewhere!

|Paladin||turn signal pigtails are literally the same plug as the speakers. go to a scrap yard and cut some for free. haven't found a connector for the brake lamp yet....|

|Ryankindred24||Does anyone happen to know the part number and/or where I can get the actual pigtails/plugs for the euro ford tails? Or should I go to Autozone|

|SVTRSST||just found a weak connection at the bulb socket, that was the cause!|

found this other how to by peterbilt, i think what that actually does is taking the power source of rear left and right turn signals from the front ones. Working with the GEM might not be the problem with my stop/parking light

Read what Mile30 wrote, he explains what each of the wires do and he has included actual wiring diagrams:

Bumping this, does anyone know what are you actually doing by doing the first part of the how to?, working with the GEM, i mean.. what does the blue wire do, and the blue with white and the blue with red?...
When i step on the brakes ill get the stop lights on, but if i have my parking lights or headlights on and i step on the brakes my drivers side stop light wont work, basically my problem is that i cannot have my parking lights and stop lights on at the same time. Any ideas whats wrong?, maybe a ground?

|Sonicbluezx3||Well I guess I'm going to go for it with these instructions then. I'm going to take some pictures while doing it tho to make it a bit easier than the illustrations. Plus I'm going to add a little bit of awesome to it ;)|

I finally had to settle on running my own wire to the tail lights.
I think it really depends on the car/year.
