Judging by the diagram, it looks like it's the brown wire (red is turn signal).

SOURCE: I am trying to wire a controller for electric

there are two white wires on the harness for the steering wheel. test for brake at one of the wires. you will have to drill a hole in firewall to feed wires. good spot is by the throttle, be sure not to cut throttle cable though. one you feed wires through be sure to seal it up with silicone and urethane.

SOURCE: im looking for color of a brake wire

Hello heinz2127: My name is Roger and i will help you. The rear brake wires are green and yellow. They also are the turn signal wires. The brake lights work through the turn signal switch.The turn signal switch has logistics for determining which side is blinking so as to make the opposite side to show park brake light.Check the fuse box for a blown fuse. Look at the fuse box under the hood. Also try this. Turn on the four way flashers. Step on the brake pedal . The lights should stop flashing If not I would replace the turn signal switch.

If switches tested good plug the wires back into the new one and work the actuator by hand. The brake lights should go on and off. If they do then the bracket were the switch mounts to near the brake pedal needs to be adjusted, in other words the pedal or the part of the pedal that makes contact with the switch needs to travel enough to fully ope and close the switch. Something to remember is that some brake pedals start out with the switch already pushed and pushing the pedal releases the switch button (or actuator) these switches are called normally closed switches, and on some cars the pedal pushes the switch only when you push the pedal, these switches are called normally open switches. Adjust accordingly, the mechanism should be self evident if you look under there with a flashlight. Another thing to remember is that you may have an intermittently bad wire, visually inspect it and wiggle it around having someone observe if the lights flicker. Hope this helps you.

Here is a picture of the brake light switch. Also at this point just buy a new connector and splice it on, much easier.

The brake lights still do not work after replacing bulbs and fuses. HELP!!!

Then the problem is most likely either a faulty brake light switch located on the brake pedal lever assembly under the dash or a broken wire at the brake light switch wire connector, or the turn-signal switch is faulty. If you can remove the wire connector from the brake light switch and jumper the wires and the brake lights come on then the switch is faulty, and sometimes if you step on the brake pedal and wiggle around the turn-signal switch the brake lights might flash or come on indicating a faulty turn-signal switch, however that is not always the case. Here is an image of the brake light switch to help assist you, and let me know if you require any further assistance.

NO BRAKE lights have the one in rear window running and turn

Please check the fuse, if okay there is a switch controlled by the brake pedal. Make sure the switch works. The brake lights wiring also goes through the signal light switch. I can't tell you the wire colors to check for 12v into the signal switch or the color wires coming out of the switch

1996 nissan pickup brake lights don't come on. worked yesterday. fuse is good.

If the turn signals work properly check the brake light switch. It is either up under the dash with a little lever resting on the brake pedal or on one of the lines or on the master cylinder under the hood. They have a two wire terminal. Pull the terminal off the switch and jump the two wires with a paperclip or any handy jumper. If the brake lights come on it is the switch. If it is bad, buy a new one. This is not a good part to get from a junkyard.

I need to hook up a boat trailor Whats the color code for a 1995

I suspect that the 4 wire harness includes a ground, so you may not be able to connect both brake lights and turn signals, which are separate lamps on the pickup. You may need to get an adapter.

In any case, the color codes on the pickup are:

Tail lights -- pink/blue
Brake Lights -- green/yellow
Left turn signal -- gray/blue
Right turn signal -- gray/red
Ground -- black
