Normally backup light don't have two filaments just one.



6 wires each really?

if that is true, I bet that you can have 3 different intensity on the backup lights. I'd tie the two leads for the backup light together for maximum brightness.

What make and model are they? Is there a schematic online someplace?

I wish there were a schematic, I've hunted high and low for one but to no avail yet.

They are Maxxima M85415R series light.

And they require two of these plugs per side.

Well when you get them, play around with the connection on the backup light and see what lights up what.

ok so I got the wiring figured out on the tail lights, installed new electronic flashers on the fuse box and now my backup, blinkers, brake, and marker lights all work as they should. (At the rear of the vehicle) However I have no front blinkers, the markers light up as they should but don't blink with the rears.

So after the tail lights, that only leaves a few issues still outstanding. Let me list them out and see what some dialog can do for my issues.

1. Fuel gauge still doesn't work.
have good ground
pink sending unit wire is plugged into a brand new sending unit
gauge spiked to full one time, other than that it has not registered or moved at all.

2. Speedo and tach both stay illuminated all the time when battery is plugged in.
wired them up no differently than the other gauges, but they do not respond to the headlight switch like the other gauges. Other gauges will dim and turn on how they should when the headlight switch is used.
Is there a orange illumination circuit that isn't tied to the the headlight switch that I might have accidently wired these two gauges to?

3. Front turn signals don't work.
Have installed LED rear lights, not sure if this is affecting things at all.
Also have installed relay upgrade onto front headlights.

4. Haven't wired up manifold heater, or electric choke yet

5. High beam indicator light doesn't illuminate when high beams are turned on.

Ok thats all I can think of right now, the list is getting smaller and smaller.

rears flash, fronts don't illuminate or flash. They illuminate when I turn on marker lights though.

At any point, have you replaced the turn signal switch yet?

Try pulling or pushing on the switch to see if that has any effect, do they flash with the hazard flashers?

I swapped out the stock column with a GM tilt column.

Pushing and pulling on the switch made no difference, still no flash. Hazards only flash in the rear as well.

I'd think I'd start from the bulkhead connection and see if the signal is there.

Easiest to reach anyway. Use a test light to see if you are getting signal.

Do check to make sure the plug on the column is plugged in all the way...

Also, got a picture of your bulkhead connector? trying to figure out which one you have,....

Let me see if I can dig up a pic, I'm sure I've got one somewhere.

another thing I noticed this morning when I went out to check the hazard flasher was that my dash indicators light up a lot brighter with the hazards activated vs the blinkers. Seems a bit odd?

To be visually noticeable, yes, that is odd.

Either one is drawing too much current making it dim or not getting enough current.

Make sure the wire is running to the TS and not something like a sensor someplace.
