Hello gang! My name is Matt, I'm known by the same handle over on the FiestaSTForum. For my feedback on the other forum, please visit: Ford Fiesta ST Forum

As a part time gig, I create 3rd brake light flashers for ST/RS models. Between Facebook and the FiestaSTForum I have successfully helped out over 75 ST owners add-on the flasher unit. The flasher contains a microprocessor which detects when the brake pedal is pressed, causing the 3rd brake light to flash at a slow or fast speed 4 times before going solid.

Why do I need this?
- Grabs drivers attention, responding faster to quick braking
- Reduces chances of other drivers tailgating, lowering your chances of being in a rear-end collision
- California DOT recently required all dealerships to offer a 3rd brake light flasher module on new vehicles

How does it work?
There is a microprocessor module with 3 wires, power, constant power and a ground. The module detects when you brake and causes the brake light to flash 3 times before going solid. After being off the brake pedal for 5 seconds it will flash again when you apply the brake pedal.

How do I install it?
All you have to do it use a T20 torx bit to remove the 3rd brake light from the spoiler, pull out the wiring, cut the power wire (blue/white) a few inches away from the light connector, splice in the black power wire to the vehicle end of the power wire, splice in the yellow power wire to the connector end. Use the bullet quick splice to add the connector to the black/purple ground wire, squeeze closed and plug in the black wire from the flasher into the quick splice connector.

How does the flashing sequence work?
For those wondering how the flash sequence works, check out the videos below to see the difference between the slow and fast flash speeds.

How do I buy?
Go to my website www.stbrakeflashers.com, click the Shop Now button to be taken to the product page. On the slow and fast flasher pages includes a demo video showing the flasher speed and a description. Enter promo code GROUPBUYDEAL during checkout to get the group buy special price. If you purchase on the site, please let me know so I can add you to the list below.

When will I receive my flasher?
The turn around time is usually 2 weeks or less once the group buy ends.

Will shipping be covered this time? (last time I think it was $34+$2 shipping = $36).

What is more obvious on the road? Fast or slow blink?

I have a little while longer to think about it.

It would work on my fiesta, should on my mk1 as well, just different colored wires.

Bump! There are a few orders that have gone through from last weekend and the beginning of this week. My great uncle passed away on Monday and I am currently out of town consoling with family but will be back next week to get those orders out.

All orders to this point have been processed and tracking info should've been sent to your PayPal email address. They will be dropped off at the post office later this evening, thanks for being patient while I was out of town with family.

Probably should have asked earlier, but I have the SE sedan. Is there any significant changes to installation I need to know about? Need to take it to a shop to have it installed and would like to let them know if any changes that need to be made in the diagram that came with the package.

Should be almost identical if not the same in color coding. I can't say with 100% certainty though but I believe I recall another sedan member getting one and saying it was the same wiring colors.

Also guys, still 11 days remaining to take advantage of the discount!

Thanks for getting mine taken care of especially with everything going on. Works great and only took a few minutes to install.

Dangit, wish I wasn't so mechanically disinclined or I'd do it myself!

But you don't think the SE vs ST would pose an issue?

From what I have heard, the third brake light from the SE is plug-n-play swap for the ST, so it should be the same installation.
