Im trying to connect a 3rd brake light to a 99 camaro is the green wire postive


Hi William, To begin, the usual color coding on American vehicles is black is ground. To test this, take a long length of cable and a test light. Connect one side of the test light to battery positive and and the other cable connect to the black wires one at a time. If the light comes on normally you have proved the ground connection, then do the same with the other. Next connect the test light to the green cable and the other cable to the black. Press the brake pedal and observe if the light illuminates. If all is well, connect the black cable from the third brake light to the black cable of your car and the red cable from the after market brake light to one green cable from your car an insulate the other. Then go ahead and mount the third brake light. Regards John

When i hook my trailer to my 2002 ford superduty i have no running lights on trailer.brake and signal lights work fine.WHY?


Hello, if you only have taillights on the trailer and no side markers, check your bulbs first. The bright side is used for the Brakes and turn signals and the normal filament is used for the running lights.

If you use a test light you can find the pin on the connector which runs the Running lights. Sometimes the wiring harness will pick up the running lights off of the taillight in the bed of the truck. You would look for a wire going up into the taillight housing from the Trailer plug.

If you are the original owner of the truck there was a small package of Relays and wire ends that came in a plastic bag. It could be stored with the jack. This package had wire color information and instructions for Electric brakes. It also color-coded the Trailer plug-in socket as they use the extra pin holes for the Electric brakes. All the wires are discussed.

If an aftermarket unit was wired in the running light, the wires could be any color. The industry tried to put in a standard, but instructions still say if you don't have one color, its another. That is still vague.

These diagrams will help assist you and I have always had success using these diagrams to properly wire trailer connectors, and all of the connections should be soldered well and also use heat shrink tubing. Let me know if you require any further assistance.

Tail light wiring connectors and wiring diagram


A test light checking each connector would be faster and easier to do. Maybe somebody may have a illustration for you but by far a simple test light is all you need with a helper turning on the different lights as you check them out and writing all your findings down

Right side trailer brake light does not work


Did yo check the fuse panel inside the truck its located on the drivers side dash , you have to open the driver side door, in there is a 10 amp fuse that is linked to rt trailer brakes and rt turn signal for the trailer, if the fuse is good there is a black box under the dash located on the floor on the driver side, just to the left of the break, thats where must of the plug in wire harness is for the trailer breaks!
