Adding more brake lights
« on: September 08, 2020, 10:28:48 PM »
I bought two LED pods which flash when activated to use as additional brake lights.  I looked around back there but couldn’t find the right wire going to the brake light.  Anyone know which one it is?

The easiest way to find it is to track it back from the light itself. There's a plug there so you can disconnect and test to find the right one.

Another option - if you are willing to shell out $200 - get the EZCan device. You won't need to cut/splice any wires (it detects pressing the brake) and you can make it blink, strobe, etc (there are several modes).

It can do much more, obviously... I also connected it to my aux leds and the Soundbomb horn.
