Does anyone know which is the brake light and which is the backup light? My colors on the connector are only Green in the middle and two whites. This is the same on both connectors.... When I tap the brakes I get power on the green wire according to my meter...Oh and by the way I am an a Electrician so I know the Physical connections are right but I do not have a diagram to tell me the wire colors...
Thank you for any input you may have...
Try searching this site for threads on wiring diagrams. There have been a few in the last week or two and several links to wiring diagrams available from Pirate 4x4. The wiring for the lights (front & rear) is also covered in manuals like Haynes (they aren't accurate for all their wiring, but I believe this part is OK).
