Default Re: Canít get brake lights to work (new wiring)

There is power to the tur switch but it is for the turn signal function only. That's why your brake lights work anytime you apply the brakes but your turns only work when the key or ignition switch in this case is on. Again no disrespect , Tim
You are correct. No problem on catching my mistake. If I was right all the time I would have made more money!
