Nothing is hooked up currently. Before I started taking things apart, the tail lights didn't work at all (they did when I got it, it looks like on of the brown wires corroded through right at the base of the connector on both sides), and one brake light didn't work (also was working when I got it).
Did the pink wire jump the 2 brake lights together, perhaps?
There's only two connectors per side on the brake wire, and since it has to connect to both the brake and the tail light, I don't think that's the case?
Do you have a multimeter? any voltage when brake pedal depressed?
I do have a multimeter, but I've never used it before. I got it in anticipation of this process.
Good bulbs and fuses? Sure?
I am sure the fuses are good, as I got a fuse tester thinking that could be the problem. The bulbs were fine when I got it, and all it's done is sit, but that is a possibility, particularly for the one brake light that wasn't working.
Pics of actual wiring might help someone assist. Brake lights worked before the wiring mods, correct?
most connectors are available from digi-key
Thanks for the link for the connectors! I took some in to the auto parts store, and he'd never seen them before. lol I'll keep poking around.
