Mercury Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.
Can you tell me what year of the ford 500 they are using this light from so I can check some diagram info?
Let me know,thanks Pete
O.k.,let me look into this and I will post back here shortly.
O.k.,the montego has an additional wire for turn and stop meaning it must use two lights for turn and stop in the rear when the ford only uses one.
Do you have the actual light to see if it plugs in the same at all?
You can leave out the wire in terminal 2 I believe from what I can tell which is the white wire with red stripe and see if this works.If it doesnt put it back in and leave out the tan wire with light blue stripe in terminal 3 and see if all lights then work.

Have you tried to remove pin 2 or 3 and see if it works with one removed at all?
If you have and this did not work you will need a light converter installed.These are used to convert a 3 to a*****you can wire in 2 and 3 to the converter and only have one coming out for the light,this is usually for trailers but will work on your model here.You will need to wire it accordingly per the instructions on the box and wire the vehicle harness into it then the exit harness from the converter needs wired to the light assembly.

You will need one for each light assembly and is fairly easy to hook up.It will come with instructions on which wire wires to which on and out of the converter.This is why I posted the info on the terminals for each wire on what it does on your model so you can wire it in.You can also usually purchase this from a local parts store but will need one for each side for a total of 2 of these.
The only other option I see is to remove one of the wires #2 or #3 one at a time and check for proper operation.Other then this the only other way is the converter option.
The LED can make a difference.I have dealt with several models that had LED lights and the LED circuit wasnt correct or enough to light standard lights or operate some of them properly.This may be the cause here.But the only other way would be to try one of the converters to see if that works unfortunately.
Your welcome.If you would like I can open your question up for others here to see if anyone else can help further just let me know if this is something you would like to do.
I will open your question up for others here to see if someone else can assist further on this as there may be others here that may have more info on what to check or do with this issue.I hope you can get this resolved with ease.No need to reply to my last post here unless it is a last resort as it will keep your question locked to me and others will not be able to view it.If you feel you want to continue to work with me on this feel free to reply at any time but keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair this without seeing your vehicle.
