They'll be the wrong polarity,

I tried this a year ago or so and ran into the same trouble. For some reason ford ran a reverse polarity to the norm and thats why they won't work. Where as incandescent globes can go either way (neg sleeve/pos pole or pos sleeve/neg pole) LEDs will only work one way (they need to match the housing)
