JDM redlines question

Postby garebare8520 » Mon Jun 10, 2019 11:37 am

So I just finished cleaning up my redlines and rewired them, however when I turn on my headlights my third brake light lights up as well. I also have the jdm digital cluster wired up (pain) which might be a factor. I remember someone saying that in japan third brake lights were optional. So can I utilize my third brake light or not? Also how the heck do you guys upload pictures here, I spent years restoring my 86 and cant share with everyone.

Your 3rd brakelight is hooked up to the running lights, but needs to be connected to the switch.

I didn't have to rewire mine- i just let the extra sockets dangle without bulbs.

Okay I will just unplug the 3rd for now, I had to relocate a wire maybe because its a gts hatch harness in a sr5 coupe. Thank you.

Did it work okay before you swapped the taillights?

I think I figured out what was wrong, I noticed my parking and turn signal turned on when I pushed the brake pedal, weird. A friend at the time working at cartoys wired up my alarm and I’m thinking he integrated all my lights when the alarm is activated. So frustrating.
