Headlights work brake lights work but no running lights

How do i remove the sensor for the rear tailgate?

1) Locate and remove sensor.
The sensor is located under the drivers tail light. Unclip it from the body and then unplug it.

2) Bypass the tail light circuit.
Connect the tail light signal wire (Green) to the tail light wire (Green w/ Red Stripe). I recommend using wire tap in squeeze connectors that way you dont have to cut any wires.

3) Bypass the brake light circuit.
Connect the brakelight signal wire (Green w/ White Stripe) to the brake light wire (Red w/ Blue stripe) and the the 3rd brake light wire (Red w/ White Stripe). Again all three of these wires are to be connected together.

4) Throw away your broken Tail Lamp Failure Sensor
Do not plug your sensor back in. Doing so will cause the annoying orange lamp failure warning light on your dash to stay on. Leave it unplugged ant the light will stay off.

5) Test your work
Turn on your lights and make sure your tail lights work properly. Have a friend step on the brake pedal, and make sure your brake lights work properly as well. Dont forget to check the Third brake light.

2000 kawaski kvf 400 quad, brake lite stays all the time will key is on, brake lite switchs for front and rear checked out ok with ohmeter, what may be the problem?

If the switches are operating normally, then you either have the running light wire and the brake light wire switched or you have a short. Two wires have probably rubbed together and are allowing both wires to have power. More likely mud or dirt has gotten into the tail light and the actual light bulb socket contacts are shorting across each other . I would disassemble the tail light and more specifically the tail light bulb socket and look for corrosion, shorting, or a damaged contact plate. Also carefully inspect the wire harness for damage (crushed wires) and proper plug in at connection points.

Brake light

I am trying to hook up my Acerbis LED tail/brake light to my '01 EC250. I can get the tail light to work but not the brake light. I am running the all stock electrical except for the headlight and tail light are Acerbis units.I guess is if anyone has any experience with this tail light set up? I spent all day trying to figure this puzzle outIf you have the wiring hooked up as described in the previous post try hooking the tail lamp wire up to the brake lamp. Does it work then? If so the brake switch may be defective. If not then either a bad ground or switch. Trace the wiring from the brake switch to the connectors and unplug it. You will need to test it with an ohmeter and see if it is turning on and off as you work the brake. If the switch is working you either have an open wire or the brake light bulb ground is not good.,,
