The wire will be red and maybe you've got to tie in to the side brakelights to feed the center.

You should be able to tap into either brake light as long as your turn signals are separate from your brake lights. If they are the one and same bulb, you will have to add a diode to keep that 3rd light on the camper from flashing with the turn signal. The diode is a 1 way item, meaning it can be installed backward and the 3rd light won't work. You could go to a local stereo shop to radio shack to get the diode and they can show you which way to install as well as ensure you have the correct parts to install.

I have a rear brake light on a camper shell I want to hook up on a 2006 dodge dakota. What is the best way to do this?


Good Morning, I have seen this done and done this same thing before. Normally you will just tie into your bake light at the tail light depending on how it (the camper) is set up. You could also tie into the one into the third brake light. I hope this helps you out it really isn't bad. If you have any more questions pleae feel free to let m know.
Thanks,
Joey

Can't get the lights on camper to work when I turn on a signal light both tail lights on camper flash thats the only lights that work . I drive a 2004 silverado


if they camper was wired for an older/other make of truck it might be different check to see if the yellow(left side turn/brake) wire maybe connected or crossed with the green(right turn/brake) wire,also see if the plug in wiring under the rear bumper is a stock plug in or if some one tried to go cheap and use"scotch-locks" on the tail light wires and crossed something under there,the parts store sells a plug in tester for your truck's particular plug that will tell you if the truck has the issue or if it's the camper,also check the ground,hope this helps,and good luck

it is not just amatter of getting power ,the brake control [elctric] runts through the trair plug as well.what is needed is to break into the traier socket harness pick up each wire with atest light so you can join into it and run the wire tp where you want it.I would have thought that the factory trailr socket would all have been in the correct places anyway

No brake lights only one above rear window and on camper shell


I recently had the same issue in my '05 Silverado... I believed it was something more dire, but it turned out that i just needed to replace the taillight bulbs. After getting stopped twice by cops within a month's time i figured it was at least worth a try to replace the $5 bulbs before spending hundreds on a mechanic to do it for me.

there will be four wires going to your lights you will have to test each wire to see which wire is for the brake light and tap into that wire. on all ford rangers one bulb controls everything so you can't just hook it up thru your bulb so you will have to hookit up thru your wires. it's not that difficult but you will have to have a helping hand. and test till you find the one for the brakes only.
