brake lights reply

thanks. useful info.

out of curiosity, where do you get these diagrams?

i also don't know how to check for power. i do have a multi-meter. can i use it and do you know how to do it or is it too complicated to explain here?

up until now, i have mostly used the continuity tester just to see if it is a complete circuit.

also, if this helps, i used a short wire to bypass the brake switch near the pedal and i still did not get brake lights. does this mean anything.

thanks for your patience.

Multimeter is perfect for this. Just set it at the lowest DC voltage OVER 15. Red wire touches to power and black wire touches to a ground.

Easier to use is a 12 volt test light which can be purchased at a parts store for around $5.00

While your'e at the parts store, purchase a Hayne's manual for your car. A lot of guys here put down on these manuals, but they have a lot of good basic info.
