I haven't seen any good write ups on this and I decided to make one. I couldn't see myself paying 150.00 for the plug and play ones off Am since splice ins are very simple and saves a lot of money. These were a impulse buy and I happy with it especially with the price.

WHAT COMES IN THE KIT:
(2) sequential flashers
Confirm all your bulbs are working and functioning properly. Replace if needed.
Remove the four nuts holding the tail lights in place. I assume everyone knows how to pull the carpet back. So I am not going to cover that part.
From inside the trunk, locate the 2 tail light plug in connectors. One side will have green tape and the other side will have orange tape around the wiring.Remove the tape and black plastic to expose the wiring. There are four little 'boxes' find the box which has two of the same color wires going into it. Cut those two wires about 2 inches from the connector. strip about 3/8" of the wire (both) the is still connected to the connector. Once you strip the wires, twist them together. Now put them into the BLUE butt connector and crimp it in place.
the remaining cut wire; strip them back about 1/4" and take one wire into each RED butt connector and crimp them down.
Connect the black sequencer module wire to the SOLID BLACK wire with supplied scotch-lok. crimp the metal deal down.DO NOT connect the black w/ pink stripe wire.
Route the red wire from the sequencer module through the rubber wiring grommet. I chose to use a drill and make a hole through it. then i shoved the metal end through and used pillars to pull through to the outside of the trunk.
Now remove the blub/socket ABOVE
the reverse light. Pull the rubber gasket thing out. Now cut a slit onto the far side. corresponding the the 'ground' marketed on the bulb socket. I went with a "V" cut. Next, shove the metal end into the ground until its seated. it will be farther in than the stock two metal parts already in the socket. reinsert the rubber gasket, putting the red wire in the groove you cut in the gasket.
Put the socket back in the tail light housing and place the tail light into its position. hit the hazard switch and see if the bulbs are sequencing in order. If not, Just pull the bulb sockets out and switch them around so they flash in order. My first taillight flashed ( from center out) 1,3,2. Something was wrong. So I just took the wires that went into the RED butt connectors and switched them and solved the issue. Once the lights were functioning 1,2,3 ( from center out, in order) i put the tail light back on and bolted in into place.
Repeat process on other tail light.
hit the hazards to ensure both lights and functioning correctly. Also, have someone hit the brake and make sure they sequence and remain lit. Should have something like this:

this is without the relay. My relay should be here in a few days and it will slow the sequence rate down.
everyone knows what they look like, but ill take another video at night.
