SOURCE: Brake lights do not work

This is a well documented problem, replace the turn signal/multifunction switch to correct this issue, this very problem happened on my GMC, it is a 99 as well, replaced the switch as instructed by a chevy forum member and it fixed the problem

SOURCE: I have a '05 Ford Ranger. I bought a camper shell

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.

SOURCE: I am trying to wire a camper shell on my 2003

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

SOURCE: Bought a camper top for my 2005 Ford F150 PU.

The after market CHMSL ( Center High Mount Stop Lamp ) is in the wire harness bundle on the driver's side frame rail, under the plastic cover. Some have found it easier to get to it in the driver's side kick panel. When you pull up the driver's side door sill, pull the carpet back, and you will find the grommet for getting into the cab of the truck

Here is the page from the EVTM for the Stop / Turn lamps that shows the after market CHMSL connection

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.

Checked fuses, dash lights don't work, gauges do work, tail lights don't work, turn signals work and brake lights work.head lights work but no running lights except when using turn signal. help.


take out the plastic panel on the drivers side in the cargo area. tucked inside the body where the taillight wiring is you will find about 6 to 8 wiring plugs. disconect all of them (dont forget to mark them as you disconnect each one. put in a new fuse and turn on the ignition. start connecting them one by one, you will hear the fuse blow when you connect the one thats bad. it should be either the rear window defroster or the rear wiper. it may sound like a lot of work, but it's pretty simple. hope that works it did for me.

I just put a leer camper shell on my 1991 chevy truck now how do i wire up the brake light on the camper shell so that the light does not blink when i put on the turn signal i heard there is a wire you tap...


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

You have to use a voltmeter and start tracing the wiring starting at the taillights. Check for 12 volts working your way up the wiringf to the front of the vehicle

1998 Chevy Monte Carlo. Brake lights won't work.


you give some good clues. because your third brake light works but not the other two, and because you sometimes get brake lights if you have turn signals on at the same time, i would say that some wires got crossed up with your other taillights. check out the power wires back in the taillight assembly and the wires that run back to the taillights. something is mixed up back there, now you just have to find it. if all else fails after you isolate which wires are the brake light wires get some new wire, same gauge and roughly same length, remove a bit of insulation but don't cut the wire in two, and put the new wire in as an overlay. if having the new piece of wire there makes the brake light work you found the break in the wire. you can cut out the bad piece and fasten the new piece in. you can solder it if you have the equipment to do that, or you can buy some squeeze in place connectors at the car parts store. either way, good idea to tape it up when you are done. hope that helps

The right brake light sensor is located in the trunk area by the right rear taillight assembly.
