Hey guys, although we've had the Bronco for about 3 weeks now, almost immediately after purchase I noticed the rear reverse light out.

Took it to Ford and they said it is an LED strip and not an actual bulb which requires the entire lamp be replaced.

That doesn't seem very cost effective, but I'm cool with them replacing the entire unit this early into it. Could be faulty. I've never heard of replacing the entire rear lamp for something like this.

The LED tail lights are a sealed unit. Nothing inside can be replaced. F-Series is the same. Very strange that both of yours have failed. Might have a bad ground?

So far I've mostly been lucky with my bronco, but this is why we have warranties :)

LEDs don’t usually just go out, they can but that’s not as typical that quickly.. It’s either a driver or connection issue but seeing as our cars are 12V, there’s likely no driver. Either way this doesn’t change anything lol but it’s most likely a loose connection.

I would be really surprised if this were anything other than a loose connection actually.
