Customer Question
Hi.I have a Chevrolet Silverado...
Hi.I have a Chevrolet Silverado 1500 2010 mod.
Tomorrow I hav an EU-control and my brake light is not working on my left backlight.
The cables/light are new; and I had to rebuild the wiring to get it to match the old wiring.
I had to swap the yellow wire from the contact to the green from the middle light to get the
signal-lamp to match.Wiring from contact;
-black-Earth
-Yellow-Signal Light
-Brown-back light
-green-reverse lightWhat is controlling the brake light?
The yellow I had to cut from the lowest lamp/back light)is not connected.
Does it need to be? It gets the backlight from the brown, and that light works good.
does it get the brake light from the same wire? is there fuses infront og each lamp on each side?
Or is there a relay controlling each side brake light?best regards *****
