I have had the same one replaced three times at a Ford dealer, the Ford dealer thought I had electrical problems. Didn't occur to me it might be condensation.

So it appears that one of the first things I should do when I get my new 2250SLE is seal up these lights!

We had one of ours replaced on our 3171DS. It had condensation in it from the factory and CW replaced it under warranty. Guess we better keep an eye on these tail lights for future problems.

There will not be a Recall on the taillights. There has to be an actual failure with the mechanism itself. I'll pass it on to our Production manager that our taillights need to be sealed better!

They are relying on the foam seal that comes with the lamp assembly.
Mine had 2 screws holding the clear lense to the large lense assembly.
This was the source of my leak- water entered through the clear lense and shorted out the LED's.
I was sent a new unit and it had 3 screws on the backup clear lense- much better but not enough- I sealed the whole unit with clear silicone. (round clear lense seals with a small o-ring only from the factory).
No problems now.- been through heavy rain driving and sitting.

Not to hijack but where is the fuse for the marker, tag and tail lights.
2014 3170 Ford E450. I have looked in owners manual, online. Any help would be appreciated.
