What locations all use that same 194 size bulb? I know the parking lights, license plate bulbs, I assume the mirror lights as well? And did you just say the one in the cargo area as well?? Looks like I need to buy a few more if that's the case. I put some LEDs in place of my parking lights out front. I HATED the yellow/amber running lights. I want everything clear/white up front except the blinkers when they're on.

Yes, you are right about the 194 in all those places, including the mirror lights. I'm working on an LED strip for the mirror signals, will post any progress I make. I also went LED for the cargo light a few weeks ago and it's SO much brighter and matches all the other LEDs now.

Here's a suggestion for you for the front parking/turn signals (I also hated the amber DRL in the fog housing):
LED Fog/DRL/Turn Signal



EDIT: @ccap41 —just realized you've already commented on my install, I'll keep everyone posted once I figure out who the US vendor is going to be.

The "mirror lights" are called puddle lights. Don't get confused because you can also change the bulbs in you sun visor mirrors but they are a different number.

Mirror turn signals and puddle lights both use 194/T10 style base

The lights also turn on when you hit the "unlock" button on your fob to allow the lights to be visible from a distance.

The cargo light is hard to photograph since the whole bay is covered in black carpet, but notice the light on the ceiling!

No flash was used when taking these pictures.

The problem with the license plate lights is that with bright LEDs you can notice both lights are pointed towards the right so the right side seems brighter than the left, I don't know why ford put the light covers like this. It's quite annoying to someone who has OCD lol, anyone know of a work around so the LEDs could both face the license plate ( left LED faces to the Right and right LED faces to the left) so there are no irregularities with the pattern of light being emitted?

I never thought there was such a thing as too bright, but I do now! Man those are bright.

You should look for the "CAN BUS" type LED to avoid dimly lit problem after engine is off.
