Uhhh, why would a grill alter your electronics...
I know, but he had to do something with the existing wires from the SVT grill with the lights. If they're not connected to anything they will either do what is being described, or the blinkers will blink really fast.The European grills don't have signals in them though, I don't understand what you're trying to wire.
Just disconnect the lights and wrap them in something to keep the water out. Tuck them under the grill and in the bumper- you'll never see them and you're not screwing with the factory wiring.ok silly question time...
I got a 03 SVT with the HID headlights... and was looking to replace the grill with a euro one. the HID's have parking lights and turn signals in them. However im pretty sure the lights in the grill are only parking lights. would i have similar problems as this guy if i just let the wires dangle?
No No No.....I wouldnt recommend to leave the bulbs dangling there, even if they are covered up. Just unplug them if you are not using them its simple. just maybe wrap some e-tape over hte connectors.
Doh, my bad. I was referring to the connectors. I installed the Focus HIDs about 9 months ago and I've had zero problems with the lights or the original harnesses (which were wraped up and tucked under the bumper.)I wouldnt recommend to leave the bulbs dangling there, even if they are covered up. Just unplug them if you are not using them its simple. just maybe wrap some e-tape over hte connectors.
I apologize for the confusion.
Most likely reason is so that they didn't have to fabricate a new honeycomb grille without the turn markers. They can just use the same grille on all of them. But that is just a guess.why did the Mach edition have the turn signals in the HID's, with no grille lights, but the SVT's with the HID's still have the grilles with the lights in them?
