you have to pull the feed wire off the brake switch to supply power to the new third brake light. get a test light and test the wires on the brake switch....one is hot all the time the other one gets hot when you depress the pedal....that is the one you need. do not take it pull your power from the rear light it might have an intergrated turn signal wire. which would make your 3rd brake light blink.. ok.have fun! you have to pull the feed wire off the brake switch to supply power to the new third brake light. get a test light and test the wires on the brake switch....one is hot all the time the other one gets hot when you depress the pedal....that is the one you need. do not take it pull your power from the rear light it might have an intergrated turn signal wire. which would make your 3rd brake light blink.. ok.have fun!

How do you bypass the brake light switch on a 1998 Cadillac Catera?

If your attempting to install a DVD player (in dash) in your car and need to bypass the brake light wire in order to be able to play it while driving its not too difficult. the brake light wire goes hot when the brake is applyied (to power the brake light itself) the DVD player uses this wire to know when the brake light is on or off based on if the wire is "hot" or not. simply splice the wire into a constant power source like the main power wire to your in dash unit.

Can you tap a wire into the left brake light wire and run the new wire under the car and tap into the right brake light wire to make the right brake light work?

Yes I actually did it yesterday on my land rover I could not get my tail light to come on only my brake light. Use a decent wire like one side of a good speaker wire will do it's what I used. Tie it into the "hot" or positive wire of a working light into the positive of the non working. Make sure the lights you are tieing together do the same job i.e. Q brake light to a brake light. If that doesn't work check your ground. Also this only helps if the wiring is bad that is sending the light the signal if the fixture is bad you will have to replace it.


Why do you have power on every light wire except on your brake light on the passenger side in your 1993 dodge shadow?

Probably a broken or shorted wire, or perhaps a faulty ground. I'd check the ground wire first before tracing the hot wire. Both brake lights should be on the same circuit, so, if the problem isn't in your ground, it'll be between the plug and the point where the brake light wires split off from each other.

When you changed the brake light fuse on your 94 Chevrolet Cavalier you noticed that when you push the brake the clock turns off upon releasing turns back help?

I would think that when you changed the brake light fuse you moved the power wire going to the clock, or somehow have loosened the wire for the clock at the fuse panel. You need to find the power wire to the clock and check all this out. Look for any wires that are hanging down and touching the brake pedal arm. This will be a power wire that is hot all the time, ignition on or off.


Why would a brake wire on a 1998 Honda cbr 600 always be hot?

As in electrically hot? Because the brake lights are required or were required to work with the key off.


Is the red wire hot or the white wire hot?

The white wire is always identified as a neutral wire. The only time you will find the white wire "hot" is in residential home wiring. This will be the return wire from a light switch back up to the light fixture. Code specifies that this conductor has to have a coloured tape identifier to show that it is not a neutral but a current carrying "hot" conductor.
