I just put on my spoiler from ebayand I was wiring it this morning I cut the black and orange wires going to the third brake light then attached the black and red wires to them
When I went to the back to see it work the led strip on the spoiler works and the third brake light is off as planned
The problem is my left rear taillight is not on but the right one is
no, you are suppose to wire it into where the 3rd brake-light is on the rear deck. Basically unhook the 3rd brake light, the wiring harness on there, drop through the hole in the deck lid, and plug it into the brake-light from the spoiler.
I'm confused there are supposed to be two was to do this one was by splicing into the wire from the trunk that's what I did but I couldn't find the orange and black wires behind the trunk support so should I just undo what I did and reattach the wires a cut?
before you do anything, locate the correct wiring harness that is on the rear deck of the trunk (between the 2 6x9 speakers). Unplug it from the 3rd brake light. there is a hole there that the harness fits in to go into the trunk. Now run the wiring harness from the spoiler, to the plug that was originally plugged into the 3rd brake light. if you still have a problem with it lighting up, you may have a bad circuit in the LEDs of the spoiler
I just put everything back the way it was I reconnected the third brake light wires that I cut so not the 3rd light and the right rear are on but not the left rear I don't know if there was any way that I wiggled a brake light wire but if there not next to each other idk how I could do that is there any way to heck if I have a dead bulb this just seems like too much of a coincidence for the light to be out after working with the wires
