We offer a number of LED options for your front and rear turn signal bulbs!

Rear Turn Signal
: First, choose your color. You should select the color which matches the reflector housing. If there is no reflector, you can choose the color you prefer. Then, choose your brightness!

Front Turn Signal
: We only list amber bulbs for the front turn signal, as well as switchback, if applicable (more details below). This is because other colors, such as white and red, are not legal for front turn signal use.

Stage 1:
Equal brightness as OEM factory bulbs, with the crisp, modern instant on/off of LED technology.
Stage 2: Much brighter than OEM bulbs, with the crisp, modern instant on/off of LED technology.

These are bright!
The stage 1 single-color bulb has 27 5050-size SMDs. The stage 2 single-color bulb has four 1.5W chips along with one forward-firing 5W CREE chip. The switchback stage 1 uses 30 amber and 30 white 1210 SMD chips, while the stage 2 switchback uses 60 dual-color 3528 chips.The bulbs use an exact terminal and will fit as a replacement for stock incandescant. All bulbs use less power and heat than the stock bulbs, and will last longer than your vehicle. Our LEDs use only the best components and are of the highest quality.
The bulbs are designed for exceptional heat dispersion, and a diode is implanted to protect the LED from reverse polarity or voltage surge. The LED is wired for 12v operation, the kind found on all vehicles.




Hyperblink Fix: The turn signals on most vehicles will begin to blink fast (hyperblink) when LED bulbs are installed. This is because LEDs use less power than the original bulbs, so your vehicle thinks that the bulb is out. There are two ways to fix this:

Resistor Kit: This is a universal way to fix the issue, and will work for any vehicle. By adding a resistor to the bulb's circuit, you can mimic the power consumption of the original bulb, and return the vehicle to normal turn signal speed. The installation takes 10-15 minutes, and involves making two simple connections. Everything you need is included in the kit. If you have both front and rear LED turn signals, you usually only need one set of resistors, on the front or rear, to create enough resistance for the turn signal circuit.

Switchback Option: For the Taurus you can use a specialty bulb known as "Switchback." This bulb is only suitable for front turn signals, with a dual filament bulb (1157, 3157, 7443, etc), when there is a clear reflector. Normally, your front turn signal lights up half power amber when you turn on your headlights, and flashes full power amber when the turn signal is activated. By using this dual-filament design, along with an integrated controller chip in the bulb, you can get a very cool effect: the switchback bulb lights up white when your headlights are turned on, and flashes amber when you use the turn signals. When you switch the turn signal off, it "switches back" to white. This allows you to gain a uniform white appearance in the front of the vehicle at night, while still having amber turn signals.

All of our products come with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee and a 3-year full warranty. For more information, please view the FAQ guide.

In the pictures you posted. Which bulb is installed on the car, the SMD60 or HP60?

That would be the HP60 (about twice as bright as the SMD60)
