Are you there?
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 11 months ago.

You can open the harness to trace the wire to find the brake or open the harness to find the wire and overlay a new wire to the next splice.

Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 11 months ago.

If there is an overlay already there then the plow headlights have been spliced in there and that is likely where the issue is.
