what i am doing is installing a wiring harness for a trailer. I have everything connected in the trunk, except for the 2 wires mentioned previously - I want to know where the brake light, and tail light wires are - I believe the colorss are red and brown, but can,t seem to find them
Chevy Mechanic: Don - Mo Lurch, Auto Mech / Electronics replied 11 months ago

I understand, but because the BCM (body control module) Powers those Lights, it changes voltage to the rear
will opt out & relist

good luck

Each light is independently controlled by the BCM, so there is no single wire for stop light or tail light, there is a separate circuit for each side. Would you like the schematics that illustrate this so you can decipher what you're trying to install?
