Just a weird rumor

A buddy of mine, who I taught a few things to about deisels and Ford's and all had told me bout this weird rumor he had heard.
Anyone ever hear that if your powerstroke has both rear tail light bulbs removed that it will NOT start?? Some sort of safety feature or something Ford put in their trucks? I thought it was absolutely proposterous. And a few people have said that putting led taillights in the truck will screw up the transmission. Something bout the amp draw and the truck thinkin something is wrong with the brakes. I don't know how much is myth and how much is truth. Just figure I would ask.

rumers

I love it when I hear someone come up with a straight common sense answere to a redicules rumer. If the rumer was true and you had one tailight bulb burned out,then when the other one burned out the your truck would QUIT now wouldn't it ????
