LED Tail Light Repair

Does anyone have a solution for a 2007 Mercury Montego with problems in a tail-light? The LED lights are inside the tail-light assembly and there seems to be no simple way to repair them, Can the housing be separated to access the LED's? Thanks!

I have never heard of this particular problem however my experience has taught me that generally with led's you have to make sure you have a good clean ground. led's draw more amprage in the circuit and if the ground is weak it will back feed this is what is most likely setting off the fault light. a quick fix is to just add a ground to the harness. hard wire a white 12 gauge wire to the main harness on both sides and then you can connect the wire to the metal of the trunk with self tapping metal screws. this will give you a good clean ground. this will do the trick....

SOURCE: cruise control turns off when

If this problem was not there before you installed LED lights that may be the cause, there may be a electrical spike from the LED high voltage circuit that turns the cruise off, you might want to call the tech support of the company that made the LED light kit.

SOURCE: cannot remove tail light assembly

I had the HARDEST time with the lights...I never realized changing a bulb would be so difficult. Once you unscrew what you need to, go into the trunk and pull the lining away from the back part of the light. There are the white prongs that you will need to tap with a hammer until they pop out and then the light assembly will come out. Be careful though, I got a little too impatient and broke mine. I used a binding agent to hold it back in place though...GOOD LUCK!

SOURCE: Legacy wagon tail light replacement

The one thing youll find with subaru's is that they like to put nuts in funny places that are hard to access. There are either 3 or 4 nuts holding the tail-light assembly in place, which means youll need to take out most of the inner panels to access the others. You should not need a sealant unless the rubber seal is done for or there is water inside the car. Hope this helps

My passenger tail light went out on my 2005 mercury Montego, instead of replacing the expensive led assembly, is there any other cars with "same" assembly without the expensive led's? Marquis/crwnvic?


Hello P Schaub,

Looking at the options available to you for parts...
Published by ROCKAUTO...
- it does indeed seem to be YOUR CHOICE...

Either TYPE of BULB seems to fit your vehicle .

Still LOOKING but I see no RESTRICTIONS.

But will the whole tail light assembly from mercury grand marquis fit directly in my 2005 mercury Montego? Would much rather order 2 new marquis tail lights then the 1 Montego tail light since price difference is better.

Sorry.. I miss-understood.

I thought you were trying to save (avoid)the $20 of the LED over The old style... .You are seriously wanting to use Crown Victoria "housings"...?

If I am understanding ... you want to reconfigure your back-up lights & everything?

Sorry I got in the way of this question. I would NOT recommend downgrading to incandescent...
but your are talking custom wiring as well.

I would not recommend either. The dealer cost for each Crown Victoria is over $100 each... and you HAVE NOT EVEN started with the CUSTOM WORK NEEDED for our reverse (back-up) lights.

I absolutely believe the trunk lid is different as well...

If you want a sheet metal guy to tell you the
fenders are the same... The best recommendation would be to RE-POST your question. I'll steer clear. Sorry I miss-understood your objective.

My apologies!

I would suggest your repost.

2011 Mercury Milan LED tail light out


Yes, I have a 2011 Milan as well and both sides of mine went out. One last year (2013) and the other side recently. My car is no longer under warranty and the dealer said they it would be $417 to repair. Ford needs to fix this issue because from what I have been reading it is a common problem and it is a safety issue!

Brake light is out (led assembly). They say I have to replace the entire tail light ($360.00) That's absurd to have have to pay that when a brake light goes out. Any other options ? Thanx Rick


you can buy a cheap lamp assembly to fit the window,stick on (may not look so good)BUT $360 is $360..... its only two wires.......(car makers make a fortune out of us all.....)DID YOU KNOW YOU CAN BUY A NEW 4STR CAR IN INDIA FOR $1500 WITH A/C...BADGED HYUNDAI/TATA/GM .....YES..... GM.........

Removing tail light assm


From Inside The Trunk Or Hatch Whichever You Prefer. Locate The Panel Or Carpeting. It Will Be Directly Behind Where The Light Is Located Only On The Inside. Remove That Panel And Or Carpet And Youll Find Three Bolts Holding The Unit In Place.

99 mercury mystide had rear running light broken


If the driver's side tail light is working, it's not a fuse. Use a test light to check for power at the bulb holder. One terminal will be for tail light, the other for brake/turn light. If the is constant power for tail light, replace bulb. If no power, trace wiring from bulb holder to driver's side junction. Probable broken wire between the two tail lights.

Tail light removal 2006 Montego


The liner is much more durable that it appears. You should be able to fold the liner back enough to unscrew the three bolts holding the tail light unit.

2007 mercury montego rear light fuse keeps blowing


  You need to be more specific about which rear light blows the fuse(interior,stop or tail). If the car has an aftermarket alarm or autostart I would look there first, they are usually installed poorly and create these types of problems.
