THIRD BRAKE / CARGO LIGHT

I AM TRYING TO HOOK UP THIS LIGHT ON A 92 SILVERADO.  IT AND THE SWITCH WERE SALVAGED FROM A WRECK.  BOTH CAME CUT AWAY FROM THE HARNESS.  THE LIGHT HAS 2 WHITE WIRES, A BLACK AND A GRAY.  THE SWITCH HAS ORANGE, BLUE/WHITE STRIPE, GRAY AND BLACK.  I KNOW THE BASICS ONLY ON  AUTO ELECTRIC, BUT EVEN MY BEST HOW TO BOOK ISN'T HELPING .  I GET LIGHTS, JUST NOT THE PROPER WAY.

I assume you only want lights, brake lights and signals. Your best bet is to plug a wire onto your truck... the flat plug, and turn , first the left signal, on. Use a test light to see which part of the plug in is flashing. Once you have established that, just keep plugging the other end of the wire into the trailer plug, until you get the left turn signal flashing on the trailer. Then repeat the process for lights etc.
You can also take the plug-in apart on the trailer. Inside the plug in it will have l/t, r/t, s, etc. (left turn, right turn, stop, etc.) There will be a very small arrow pointing to the terminal connection that is for each.

Car will crank, but won't start


One of the usual problems with Ford products is the Inertia switch. It has a reset button and is made to cut power to your fuel pump in case of a wreck. A bump, jarring motion will falsely trip this switch. Closing a door or cargo lid can occasionally create the right frequency to do just that.

You have a switch that has several locations listed. You can try under the dash to the right of the transmission hump. Another potential location is the Drivers lower rear cargo area, close to the Air-ride switch. A third place is the front kick panel area.

I would advise looking up this part under your Year and Model and get pictures of what you are looking for. Cannot say why many locations are listed. You will see when you read the search results.

95 gmc c1500 third brake lite works but cargo won't


The cargo light will only work if the lights in the cab are on. Turn them on then flip the switch for the cargo light and it should come on, if not then it is probably an electrical problem.

I have a 2004 silverado. My cargo light isn't getting any power. My third light works fine and when i reverse the harness the cargo lights work. I'm assuming its in the wiring. Do the two wir


There should be 12 volts on the orange wire at the bulbs. The switch controls the ground side of the circuit. There should be 12 volts on the blue w/white wire at the switch. The switch will ground that wire and complete the circuit and the cargo lights will turn on.

to check the switch you would unplug it and check for continuity between the pins that the blue w/wire wire and black wire go to.

I had the same problem. I swapped two of the same relays for the stop lamps under the hood in the fuse box panel. The problem went away. Apparently the relays stick some time.
