Custom DIY LED Third Brake Light Kit Installed on Scion FR-S

On the newer cars like this Scion FR-S and Subaru BR-Z, there is a red lens on the bottom of the rear bumper which is surrounded by the reverse lights. Strangely enough, this is not used at all on the North American variant of these cars, but it is used in other countries in Europe and in Japan as a rear fog light for low visibility conditions. We decided to create a kit that is specifically designed to make use of that empty housing by turning it into a functional third brake light.

This Scion FR-S 3rd Brake Light kit we have available includes a drill bit, quick splices, LED bulb, and bulb socket for a very easy installation. The bulb is a 18-SMD 5050 LED bulb and is Brilliant Red in color; this setup has the ability to act as a third brake light only or also as additional running lights like your tail lights. The drill bit is the same exact size as the LED bulb socket so that item included makes the job much easier to install; all you need is a 12v electric power drill to attach it to. Quick-splices are also included so tapping the factory tail light wires for the power is a breeze.

This kit is not limited to the Scion FRS or Subaru BRZ 3rd brake light, they can also be used on similar vehicles that have the same type of housing such as the 2009+ Nissan 370z as well. Since this kit does require some slight modification of the factory assembly, we do recommend professional for the inexperienced. Experienced individuals with basic electrical and mechanical knowledge should have this install completed within 2-3 hours.

A very common addition that many of the newer vehicles are attempting is the installation of a stylish third brake light. In this case, it’s a conversion of the red lens that came on the car from factory into a fully functioning running and brake light. Fortunately, for the Scion FR-S and Subaru BR-Z, the factory bumper comes with a red lens near the rear diffuser that covers an empty housing. The iJDMTOY LED FRS 3rd Brake Light Conversion Kit will turn that housing into a functioning safety upgrade.

Since these lights are utilizing the factory location, extensive modifications are not required. The kit includes a drill bit that is used to create a hole for the socket and LED bulb to fit in. Each kit includes a red 18-SMD 3-Emitter 5050 LED bulb that will produce a noticeable amount of light and comes with all the parts needed for installation; you just need to supply the electrical tape and tools.

The combination of the red lens and red LED bulb produces a glow that will match many aftermarket LED tail lights and the factory center brake light behind the rear window. The lights can be wired to act as just a Scion FR-S 3rd Brake Light, turning on only when the brakes are applied. Alternatively, the lights can also be wired to act as the running and brake lights as well; this will act like the outside tail lights at night. While these lights are marketed specifically towards the Scion FR-S and Subaru BR-Z, it can be also used on other vehicles with a similar light setup such as the 2009 and up Nissan 370z and more.
