V3 - 3rd brake light Safety Flasher ECU module
2 Attachment(s)
With the success of the previous Safety Flasher module for the LED FULL LINE center stop/3rd brake light, a complete new version has been developed using the latest electronic technologies. This new version is now also much easier to configure. It's entirely part of the LED Full Line center brake light which has an edge to edge illumination providing 20% more light than stock.

This micro-processor based Smart ECU module, running our firmware, will flash the center LED Stop Light when you brake to get more attention from drivers behind you and alert traffic to stop!

When the brake pedal is pressed, the center stop light will flash during the configured duration and at the configured speed (default 2 seconds - medium speed), then will turn steady on. The duration of the flashes as well as the flash speed can easily be configured.

It's also possible to set the module in continuous flash mode which will make the center stop light flash as long as the brake pedal is pressed.

It's now also possible to disable the ECU module which will make the center stop light turn always steady on.

The device features a unique re-activation timing system to minimize the annoyance of brake light flashes when the brakes are used in heavy traffic. Your Ferrari LED third brake light will flash the configured number of times the first time the brake pedal is pressed, then the flashing effect is disabled if the brakes were pressed during the configured period of time (configurable between 4 and 20 seconds - default 10 seconds). In other words, the center stop light will flash each time the brake pedal is pressed during less than the configured timing, otherwise, it will turn steady on.

It features also a unique Pulsing mode (by default disabled). When activated, the brake light will flash between full and partial intensity, the brake light is never turned fully off but goes between fully ON and dimmed. Among 9 brightness levels can be configured.

With the provided configuration switch, this ECU module can be easily configured and it's now also possible to easily revert back to the factory defaults.

Flasher configurable modes (see installation guide for further details):

Flash duration: from 1 to 8 seconds, continuous flashes or flashes disabled
Flash speed rate: from 25 milliseconds (very fast) to 250 milliseconds (slow)
Reactivation timing: disabled or from 4 to 20 seconds
Pulsing mode: disabled or from 5% to 45% brightness

For the 458/599/FF owners who follow me here, don't miss this:

Our new "Novitec tinted/darker rear light clusters electronic repair service".

For those who upgraded their Ferrari 458 - 599 - FF rear lights with the Novitec tinted version, unfortunately, Novitec stopped selling them after having had too many issues with failing lights. Novitec doesn't offer any support neither. This created a lot frustration among their customers and we decided to offer a durable fix thanks to our expertise in electronics.

The Novitec tinted rear light has a electronic design flaw and already many of these tail lights failed to operate correctly. This issue effects mainly the stop/brake and parking lights which will stop working after some time (you'll get a instrument panel alert). The internal circuit fail mostly due to excessive heat caused by the flawed electronic design.

In our lab, we've analyzed the root cause, redesigned the internal circuit and created a reliable solution to repair the Novitec tinted/smoked tail lights. Our repair solution will save your over 3.000USD investment you made for these tail lights.

These Ferrari 599 Novitec dark rear lights came in our factory in a quite bad condition. In addition to the destroyed round lenses, the LED chips are very much damaged too. Although, we will entirely repair these rear lights which will return to our customer as new. The repair includes also our vast improvement of the electronic board to make them well more reliable.

We offer this repair service for all Novitec rear lights: Ferrari 458, 599 and FF.

Many F430s over the world continue to be upgraded with the Smart LED DRL Headlights - Ultimate EV1.

Here's another example kindly shared by a Greek owner comparing before and after the upgrade.

Don't let your car been overlooked by drivers coming in front of you. In additional to increased safety, it also updates the car as it was made originally.

NEW! We have now also the dark/black version of the side turn signal/direction indicator lights available. This small light comes with an amber incandescent 5W bulb (no LED possible here as this light is too small to receive a bright enough LED solution).

Plug & Play for Ferrari F430, 360, F355, 599 and 458.

Our Ferraris have 4 rear light clusters but only one half at each side is used for the stop lights on EURO spec cars or only one entire light cluster at each side on USA spec cars...and the center stop light doesn't light up the entire cluster neither...

With the Plug & Play ILUAL43 LED Rear Light package, when you brake, all 4 rear light clusters will turn on entirely with a very bright red LED light.

The stopping power of your car will now become clearly visible at day and night with a 50 times faster response time than the OEM incandescent lamps!

Dimmed, the LED parking lights will turn on all 4 or the 2 outer rear light clusters (depending on your choice) with a nice red light making your car well more visible at night. Parking lights do respect the road regulations in terms of brightness.

I have this LED tail light set on my 2006 F430 F1 Spider and I am completely happy.

It really transforms the car. Makes the lights super bright and instant on as they are LED's.

Makes my car super visible to prevent accidents especially at night.

Thanks Stef for making great products for our pride and joy.

This is our third generation of the Ferrari F430 LED rear lights system using now 100% CREE LED technology.

Our Smart Engine Bay Lighting System can be easily controlled with the provided remote control and the light will automatically dim when the reverse gear is engaged.

Difficult to take a good photo at evening, so bright our Smart LED DRL Lights for the F430 are. They are perfect and very visible at daylight though.

Fortunately, the DRL Lights will automatically dim when the low beams or turn signal lights are turned on.

All brightness levels can be easily customized by the driver by using very simply the lights lever or stalk at the steering wheel.

A great way to modernize the F430 while improving safety.

An lovely sunset showing off the efficiency of our Smart DRL LED Lights. They really complete the perfect design of the Ferrari F430, without having to change or remove anything, just as it was made originally.

This is our third generation of the LED Rear Lights Package now installed on the Ferrari F430 and 612 since several months.

We've improved even more the light distribution inside the light cluster using only CREE LED chips. The results are a perfect illumination of the rear lights with a smooth parking light and a very powerful illumination of all four stop lights. Needing only 1 millisecond to turn on, no one will miss anymore your stop lights which is a vast safety improvement!

Also available for the Ferrari 360, 575M, F355, 550, 456GT/M, F50 and F512M

This is our third generation of the Ferrari LED rear lights system using now 100% CREE LED technology.

Compared to OEM (very hot incandescent bulbs causing corroded contacts), the parking/position/running LED lights are well more visible with a smooth light while not blinding at night. They don't heat at all and need very little power. All this technology is completely integrated in new high heat resistant "bulb holders", no failing bulb contacts anymore. You just need to replace the old bulb holders with the new LED features, that's it.

Third generation of the Ferrari LED rear lights: brake/stop lights

Compared to OEM, the stop/brake LED lights are well more visible. Euro spec cars have even only one half of the outer light cluster illuminated with poor light and very slow incandescent bulbs. Look and compare the red glare left on the table. A serious safety improvement.

Our LED technology is instantly eye catching which can save you from being rear ended...especially when all 4 rear light clusters are instantly illuminated when you brake.
