Customer Question
The taillight wiring harness...

The taillight wiring harness got cut (by a vandal) and I am trying to splice them back together but I am having problems. 05 Tahoe btw. There are three same-color wires that I have switched twice and am still having issues. Any suggestions?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the bulbs? Have you checked the connection?

Bulbs are all new, connections are fine, because when I turn on signals or hit brakes, wrong lights come on.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Tahoe yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes, color coded spliced wires but they are obviously wrong.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Three pairs of wires are same color, switched them with no luck.
