Ford Emblem Animation

Reese has created this light-up emblem to look like an ordinary Ford logo in daytime, non-braking situations. When you turn on your vehicle's tail lights or activate the brakes, the emblem's unique metallic coating appears transparent and bright red LEDs shine through. The long-lasting LEDs have 2 intensity levels. The red lights remain set at low illumination when your vehicle's tail lights are on. When you activate your brakes or turn on your hazard lights, the LEDs burn brighter to draw attention to your vehicle. The emblem will not flash when your turn signals are activated.


This light-up emblem is designed to replace your vehicle's factory emblem, but it can also be installed in addition to your OE emblem. Because it simply sticks onto your vehicle with heavy-duty tape, you can mount it almost anywhere. Some vehicles will require removal of the back paneling to access the wiring. For other vehicles, you may have to drill an access hole to run the wiring.

Use a circuit tester (sold separately) to identify your vehicle's wire functions. If your vehicle has a 2-wire system, in which one wire is used for both the brake light and turn signal functions, you will need to install the included converter to ensure correct performance.

If you intend to install this emblem on a pick-up truck - and you frequently remove your tailgate - then you can install a 2-way flat connector (9651P- sold separately) to make disconnecting the wiring quick and easy.

Video Transcript for Reese Novelty 86094 Review

Today, we're going to review part number 86094. This is the Ford LED Lighted Vehicle Emblem made by Reese. This is an officially licensed Ford logo, which will add a stylish touch to your vehicle. It will replace your standard OEM Ford emblem on the rear of the vehicle. Underneath the Ford name, it has red LED's which will light up, and gives your vehicle some flash, and to make it more visible, as well as to alert other drivers to slow down or stop when you do. It does have the low illumination, so while you're using your tail lights,they'll be on low.

And when it goes to a high illumination,is when you brake or engage the hazard lights. It does use energy efficient LED's, which are very long lasting. If you see on the back here, it does actually have a . You can peel that off and it's a double-faced sticky tape that it'll stick onto. It is a corrosion resistant plastic construction with a metallic coating that becomes transparent when the lights are activated, and if you notice, there's a wire on the back.

It's about a four foot length of wire that you will hard wire into your vehicle's tail light assembly. It has the white for ground, a brown wire for the power to the tail lights, and the red wire for the brake lights. Now, the application for this is designed for Ford vehicles, and it is for use on the rear of the vehicle only. The dimension is nine inches wide, three and a half inches tall, and it does come with a ninety day warranty. So, I do have a twelve volt power source here. What I'm going to do is connectour wires just to give you an idea of how bright the light will be.

So once we get all our wires hooked up, we're going to go ahead and turn off our overhead lights. Now with our overhead lights off, I'm going to turn on . You'll be able to see . There it is with just the tail lights on, very low illumination, and then when you apply your brakes, you'll be able to see. It gets a lot brighter.

That is with the brakes applied. Okay. We'll just go ahead and turn our lights back on, and disconnect our twelve volt power source, and that should do it for the review on part number 86094, the Ford LED Lighted Vehicle Emblem by Reese.

I had lost a lighted hitch cover and didn't want to go that route again. This lighted emblem is very nice. By day you can not tell the difference from the factory emblem. At night, it's pretty slick. Installation was basic. You have to tap into both rear lights on my 2009 F150. Old emblem pulled right off, but cleaning the adhesive foam off was a bit time consuming. Will have to see how well it holds up, but I think worth the time and money if you want to add some distinction to your Ford. Etrailer was very good to work with. 110395

I bought this to replace the emblem on the back of my F150. I was surprised to see how easy it was to install. When it was wired up, it worked really well and I was very pleased with the look that it gave to the truck. 177844

Quality looked OEM. I haven't put it on yet, but it looked like it came from the factory. Communication was superb. I would buy from Etrailer if/when I needed a part/piece to add to my truck. Thanks! 113846

  • Lighted Emblem For 2013 Ford F-150 Pickup Truck
  • The lighted emblem we offer for your 2013 Ford F-150 pickup, part # 86094, measures 9 inches wide by 3-1/2 inches tall. This replaces the OEM installed emblem on the back of your pickup. It has low illumination when you are using your tail lights, and a brighter illumination when the brakes or hazard lights are applied. This emblem hardwires into your tail light assembly. It also includes a brake conversion module that would be used only if you have a 2-wire system, where one wire is used...

  • Can the Ford Lighted Tailgate Emblem # 86094 Be Modified to Illuminate Blue
  • The Ford lighted emblem # 86094 that you referenced has a silver/chrome edge with a blue background and the -Ford- logo is also in silver/chrome. When your brake is activated the -Ford- logo illuminates red. I spoke with my technical contact at Reese and asked if you could pop out the back panel and insert blue LEDs so the -Ford- logo would illuminate blue, however, due to DOT regulations, when the emblem illuminates it must be red.

  • Wiring For Lighted Emblem On 2010 Ford F-150 When Removing Tailgate
  • The Ford LED Lighted Vehicle Emblem, part # 86094, does not feature a plug for installing. This requires hardwiring into your tail light system. If you are planning on removing your tailgate, you would need to install a connector that you can easily disconnect. For a quick disconnect, I would recommend a 4-way loop connector like part # 9653P. You would cut the wire loop in half, separating the connectors, and splice the wires from one connector to the lighted emblem and converter,...

  • Will Lighted LED Ford Emblem Fit on a 2006 Ford Ranger Tailgate
  • Technically, you can install the Ford lighted emblem # 86094 on any vehicle, including your 2006 Ford Ranger. But as far as if it fits in place of any stock emblems it tends to only fit as an exact replacement for certain models of the F-150. Otherwise you can use it!

  • Will the Ford LED Lighted Rear Emblem Fit a 2010 Ford F150
  • The Ford LED Lighted Vehicle Emblem # 86094 that you referenced is designed to fit the rear Ford emblems of F-series trucks and should work well on your 2010 Ford F-150. If you wanted to confirm this you could measure the current emblem at the rear of your vehicle. The # 86094 measures 9 inches wide by 3-1/2 inches tall. If the dimensions are the same then you know it would work.

  • Ford Light Up Emblem Only Works with Brake Lights and Not Running Lights
  • Since the running lights are a constant draw, that might be showing us a weak ground connection. Try moving the ground to a different location and make sure it is a clean metal surface by itself preferably and not grounded with anything else. There can be no paint or undercoating on the metal either. This might limit your options a little but it will provide the best ground. If it still happens then it does sound like there is a wiring issue inside the emblem and it will need to be replaced....

  • Can Lighted Ford Emblem be Installed on the Front of a Vehicle
  • Technically the Ford logo # 86094 could be installed anywhere but it is intended for the rear of the vehicle only. This is because of certain laws regarding lights at the front of a vehicle. Since the emblem lights up red that is one issue. Only emergency vehicles are supposed to have red and/or blue lights in the front.

  • Will Lighted Ford Emblem Fit a 2013 Ford Edge
  • The Lighted Ford Emblem # 86094 is designed to fit certain Ford F-150 trucks but you would likely be able to make it work with your 2013 Ford Edge. The issue is that on some vehicles, the part that the factory emblem fits into does not match what this emblem will fit. It has been known to have fit issues with 3/4 ton and 1 ton trucks. After looking at some pictures of the back of a 2013 Ford Edge, the emblem does look the same as on the F-150s but I cannot confirm fit.

  • Does Ford Lighted Emblem Fit an F-150 with Backup Camera
  • If the backup camera on your Ford F-150 is located in the stock emblem or the emblem housing then lighted emblem # 86094 would not be a fit. You could still use it but it would have to go somewhere else on the back of the truck.

  • How Many Amps Does the Ford Lighted Emblem # 86094 Draw
  • The Ford LED emblem is going to pull less than 1 amp. Closer to 0.3 amps. LED lights draw a fraction of the power of the same size incandescent bulb. It will not overdraw a vehicle wiring system.

  • Ford Red LED Lighted Emblem No Longer Lights Up
  • Make sure that you have the Ford lighted emblem # 86094 properly grounded to a clean and bare metal surface on the truck. If it does not light up then try grounding the ground wire to the vehicle battery and touching one of the power wires to the positive terminal. If it lights up when using a separate battery like this then the emblem is fine and the issue is likely in the connections made to the truck. If it does not light up then the lights may have shorted out and it will have to...

  • Will Light Up Ford Emblem Fit a 1999 Ford F-150
  • The Ford light up emblem # 86094 isn't vehicle specific so you could technically put it on any vehicle, even a non-Ford if you wanted. So you can use it on your 1999 Ford F-150. The emblem is 9 inches wide and 3-1/2 inches tall. I have linked a video review of the emblem for you.
