I've been having some problems with my brake lights lately (not working), and the judging from the code I was getting I had a bad brake light switch. So, I bought 1, changed it, no fix. Bought #2, had greg help me install it, still no fix. I had my car in for inspection/emissions, so I had them look at it, and fix it. He slapped yet another brake light switch on it, passed emissions/inspection, but then the light came back on when I left the shop. So, I called Chris White up. He said he'd give me a hand Saturday. He thought it was a bad connection when I called and he had a quick fix if indeed that was the case...but it turned out not to be the case at all...it turned out to be a dead short somewhere in the brake light switch wiring. now comes the ripping and tearing...
BINGO!!!! The wire running in the hatch to the 3rd brake light was sliced open (as you can see). Easy fix that turned into 3 hours...ug. Just needed to pin-point it, that's all.
^^ went through 7 fuses trying to figue this one out. everytime I would press the brake, the fuse would blow (because of the dead short).
to Chris White (at Olivers for you CePA folks) for helping me on this one. I would have never figured this out on my own. Thank YOU!!!!
