Hey everyone,

 

Just have a quick question and sounds like I need a piece of advice please. Here's what's happening. I will have to tow an old small trailer with my MKX. I am totally unhappy with even an idea of doing this, though I cannot explain this to my dad who is aged and that is what he wants me to do. To get his old trailer to his cousin with my Linc. And I am absolutely fine with doing that for him, except of the fact that his old trailer's tail lighst are of no good already. So I was wondering, if I grab a set of simple universal LEDs (https://www.carid.com/trailer-lights/) and hook them up, will old wiring system recognize them?...

If the wiring is intact and still works, yes.  But the problem with the existing lights could be the wiring is bad.   You might need to buy the wiring kit and taillights to be safe - they're not that expensive.

Oh okay, thanks for letting me know, I did not know even that they sell such kits separately. Will check it out and grab along with the lights. To have everything handy just in case. Appreciate your help, man! :)
