As long as it fits a MM it will do as a core. Just make sure it's not burned up inside.

Not me. I did my apprenticeship with Fleet Service at the Post Garage for the RCMP. None of the CVs had DRLs enabled, kinda hinders sneaking around. A dead give away that a vehicle was an unmarked one, was if no DRLs were on. Believe me, they stood out in a sea of headlights during the day.

I doubt Ford built any Canadian VIN'd cars without DRL just for LEO's. Disabling the Canadian DRL in a panther is as easy as removing a fuse, which is likely what happened during initial outfitting.

Logizyme, please elaborate on how one would disable the DRM. I have a Canadian
Marauder with DRL that I imported and I have long wondered how to disable the DRL
feature. Thanks

Newer Panthers have the kill-DRL via computer I've been told, the older ones it was a simple module to unplug.

Thank you for this post

Recently I got a nasty letter from Ford because I did not have the LCM recall done, threatening me for being negligent if the lights fail. The service department at my reputable local dealer advised against having this repair done unless I had any prior problems. Your explanation of the procedures involved clearly demonstrates that a half-ass fix to something that is not broken can be worse than leaving it alone. Thank you for this post, and I express my disappointment with Ford.

Do the new modules (4W7Z-13C788-BD) that Ford sells have the update included or do they still need the fix/repair?

No, there is no update other than new or improved functions. Same exact parts inside.

With parts and directions from fastblackmerc, goldpanther, and limited360, I've gotten all of the exterior lights onto LEDs along with an external headlight harness to reduce the load on that relay in the LCM. And I had the warranty extension work done, too. Given how little I drive the car these days, not too worried about the new LCM going bad. I do recommend the external harness, though. Power the headlights through larger gauge wiring instead of that 18g wire running throughout. If I can get my crap together, though, I want to have my LCM upgraded, just to be safe. Fastblackmerc, I've probably said I'd be sending the damned thing out to you about a half dozen times by now. Sorry I'm such a putz. But the electronic signal flasher is sill working great.

The issue I'm having is that there's a short where the harness plugs into the LCM. Sometimes my taillights won't come on. I can reach up under the dash and wiggle the connector to the LCM, and when you hear a relay "click", the taillights will come on.

I've had the relays replaced in my LCM 100K ago, but not sure if this issue is fixable.

Sounds like there is a loose or bent pin in the connector. I doubt it's a problem inside the LCM.

I had the recall done and My brake lights won't come on either. Have to press the pedal pretty hard. I may swap the switch to see if it helps. If not, it's going back to the dealer.
