does anyone know if they're going to be an orderable part?

I am ordering the LED parking lamps from the parts dept. for my car. By ordering the Super Fuel Economy package, I boxed myself out of being able to get the LED lights, given the way the options are bundled. The service guy said they should be 'plug & play' and they said if I wanted to buy the lights (and switch probably) they would be happy to install them. The only thing I have to check on before actually ordering the lights is to have a look at what body additions are included on the SFE package that might interfere with their installation. I can't see where that would be a problem, but I have no pictures to base that decision on. I also don't know if there are just plastic plugs in the stock locations, or maybe the hole in the bumper cover is not even cut out. I hope that is not the case. Better to wait until my car comes in and get them then.

you can download the instructions on how to install them on the Ford Accessory site. You can order them from the parts deparment, or from Ford Accessories when they are released. The accessory price should be cheaper than the parts department price.

I couldn't find them on fordparts.com - do you know what the part number is?

I also have the Super Fuel Econ package... guess I should also wait til I actually get the car too ;) Luckily my wife is getting an SES so I can take a look at how hers is hooked up and then compare to what's under my hood/in-cabin

Cutting into the facade doesn't scare me one bit. I cut into my escape (which I'm trading in for the Fiesta) to install the factory hitch and it was pretty easy using a rotozip to make the initial cut and a small razorblade to smooth everything out - looked fantastic after the fact.

yeah, I can't find that number anywhere yet either. The install looks easy. I am using the instructions to remove the chrome bezels and bumper cover. The chrome will be wrapped in 3M vinyl and reinstalled. I remember the bumper cover on my Focus was super easy to remove. I used to have a different bumper for summer and winter. Summer used a Rieger RXX from Europe and a SVT Focus rear bumper. Winter used the stock ones. Don't think I will get that silly with the Fiesta, but the bumpers look easy enough to swap.

Are you folks sure the harness & switch on the dash are still there? Most companies try not to give stuff away.

To install the lights on a car without them, you need the harness. The instructions have a PN for the harness. Looks like it comes off the parking lamp lead on the headlamps. Not 100% sure since I am only removing the bezels to wrap them and reinstall.

From reading through the LED instructions, it doesn't appear as if you have control over them from the dash, they're even called 'supplemental parking lamp' which makes me believe they're only supposed to come on automatically when you've got the parking lamps turned on - from the diagrams this appears to be exactly the case. This entire assembly doesn't even require splicing wires which makes me sad and happy at the same time - by the way if you ever jumper wires, try to find some liquid electrical tape to use, it's far better. (we'll see how the factory assembly works when I get a chance to look at my wife's SES - it was supposed to arrive 2 weeks ago but still no sign of it).

I also downloaded and have been looking at the ambient light assembly. This is something I wasn't interested in at all to begin with but the more pictures I see of it the more interested I've become. This is yet another feature my wife's SES has... I suppose I'm not just becoming envious... Anyway, the instructions for the ambient lights are quite a bit more involved, but still don't seem like that big of a deal.

Correct ,the air dam mounted parking lamps are simply controlled by the main HL combi switch...When you turn the P= lamps on in the headlamp housing it automatically turns on the supplimental LEDs.

My '95 Neon was wired for power windows in the front doors, and at the time power windows weren't availble yet. They don't want 212 different harnesses when one with it all the plugs makes it simpler, all the same. Switch will need to come form the parts department.

All I get from that is a site that asks for a keyword, and no matter what I enter I get nothing.
You unfortunately have to use Internet Explorer on all of fords misc websites if you plan on getting anywhere useful.

Here is a link to the current installation instructions for the led parking lamps:
http://www.fordaccessoriesstore.com/GfaWeb/getFileBlob.do?fileid=955. The document will be out of date if they ever update it, so it's best to go through the steps of actually downloading it. So, if you are able to, launch internet explorer and do the following:

1. Near the top, just under "Technical Specifications":
select type: Installation Instructions (Genuine Ford Accessories)
select description: Electronics
2. a new selection will be added:
Choose Category: Lamps, Lights, and Treatments -- Car
3. Click on
Fiesta (2011-CMY) Parking Lamp Installation Instructions


The ambient lighting can be found in the same place. For those of you without Internet Explorer, you'll have to rely on this (potentially outdated) link:

These lamps are for looks only...thats OK

I have them on my Fiesta. They do increase your visibility on the streets, much like DRL's do. However, they have no value as a driving lamp. I had a 1970 mustang with the "sportlamp" option. I look at these as a modern version of that. They both do one thing VERY well. They look cool when you pull into the A&W at dusk and back into a parking space. Anything that adds "coolness" without adding weight is ok with me.

EDIT: After reviewing how the set up works for these, I want something else I guess. I am looking for a way to have only the LEDs always be on (not any other lights from the main headlights).

For G2244 (or anyone else): Have you figured out a way to light only the LEDs?

Please use the search feature on the top of the page. There are a couple threads on this already.
