2018 mk4 focus rear light upgrade

Recommended Posts

Hi, I've a new shape 2018 focus St line x. This car comes with standard bulb type rear lights, unlike the titanium x that has led rear lights as standard. 

 I've just bought a full set of the led type from a titanium x but have a problem with the outer pair. The inner pair in the tailgate work fine with the led side light working. But, the outer pair, the led strip isn't coming on and it's using a bulb.side light instead.  The led brake light seems to work but is also coming on as a side light. Indicator works fine but that is a bulb anyway so the same. 

 Has anyone done this conversion and does it need a wiring mod or a body control module reconfiguring

I would imagine they need coding in so the ECU knows they are LED.  LED have very different power profiles than halogen.

You need to configure LED rear lamps in the BCM using forscan

Gracias Christian, ¿conseguiste encontrar un código para cambiar las luces traseras estándar a LED en el BCM? ¿Sabes qué código es. Espero que esto transate bien, usando algo en Internet
