Follow the wires back farther and they should come to a factory connection that you can snap apart. The connection should be under the bed between rear bumper and before the rear axle. And grind the srew off, drill it out, or something along that lines.

I have 89 bronco 2 my brake lights turn signals both work my tail lights don't work have check fuse n blubs what might be the problem


The turn signals and brake lights use the same circuit and filament in the bulbs. The tail lights are on the other circuit which comes from the headlight switch.
Do you have power on the tail light fuse ?

Where is the throttle position sensor on a 2003 jeep liberty


On top near the back of the engine you will see a metal throttle cable. It is just to the drivers side of this cable above the spark plug wires. There are two screws holding an oval shaped sensor with a wire connected to it.

How to change break switch on 89 mustang


  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Unplug the wire harness at the connector from the switch mounted at th brake pedal. The locking tab must be lifted before the connector can be removed.
  3. Remove the hairpin retainer, slide the stoplight switch, the pushrod and the nylon washers and bushings away from the pedal and remove the switch. NOTE: Since the switch side-plate nearest the brake pedal is slotted, it is not necessary to remove the brake master cylinder pushrod and washer from the brake pedal pin. To install:
  4. Position the switch so the U-shaped side is nearest the pedal and directly over/under the pin. Slide the switch down or up, trapping the master cylinder pushrod and black bushing between the switch side plates. Push the switch and pushrod assembly firmly toward the brake pedal arm.
  5. Assemble the outside white plastic washer to the pin and install the hairpin retainer to trap the whole assembly.
  6. Assemble the wire harness connector to the switch. Check the switch for proper operation. Connect the negative battery cable. NOTE: The stoplight switch wire harness must be long enough to travel with the switch during full-pedal stroke. If the wire length is insufficient, reroute the harness or service, as required.

No you cannot just connect the 3rd brake light to the left/right brake light, chances are they also function independently as turn signals. The type of trailer wiring harness you speak of is usually installed by unplugging the wiring harness and plugging that connector inline. The two sides of that harness should plug back together.

Have a converter to hook up trailer lights but can't find the t to plug it in to


It may be behind a access panel all the way towards the back of the inside of car. you must access the wiring harness for rear tail lights this is usually behind the left side rear access panel in the car.
