What do you mean by pull the third brake light?
what all colors do you have at the switch?
I knew you were gonna ask me that and I'm at work and my truck is at home. Best I can remember there was green, green, red/green, brown? (not sure on that one, and black.
the red/green and (brown or whatever color) were both hot all the time and the black was ground. I think there were only those five. sg
I listed the wires in the order they are on the switch left to right. the second green is the one that made the third light hot when I jumped power over.
the solid green. Ok do you have power on the dark blue/white and bron yellow with the pedal pushed?
everything working now?
Ok, if I un plug the connector from the brake switch the solid green is hot, the red/green is hot and the brown is hot. Maybe I have a bad connector? If its plugged in, the green/red is only hot with the pedal pressed but I can get voltage on the red/green whether the pedal is pressed or not. I can mess with it with my meter end and get it at a certain point where its only hot if I press the pedal but if I get a really good connection it seems to be hot all the time.
I'll try and change the connector. The red/green is hot all the time. My bad. Green is hot when pressing the brake but the red/green is hot all the time. Will the connector come by itself or is that gonna be a major ordeal to replace like a whole wiring harness. And yes you're fixing to have some more money coming your way. thanks sg
Is fuse number 10 in the interior fuse box good? I fit is than check the ground wire under the drivers seat and see if it is tight and clean.The turn signals and shift lock use the same ground.
Did this part only start after changing the turn switch?
I have seen some wierd stuff but I think you have a couple of wires that are touching and when you wiggle wires they come back apart
