3rd Brake Light

Okay, so the PO cut the wires and removed them when he pulled the stock tire carrier and the light assembly.

I installed known-good stuff from my dead jeep today. I replaced the bulb just in case. No-go.

I realized the PO had herculined over the contacts in the tub. I scraped them clean and lightly sanded the surfaces. They make firm contact with the contacts on the set I installed today, again, known to be good.

I did not damage or stretch or yank the wires or contact boots that I know of. But there is no dang light when we hit the brakes. Not even a brief flicker to indicate something being loose. It is dead.

How do I run the wires inside the tub from the contacts to where the line branches off from the main brake lights? Where would this be, anyway? I am pretty sure that the PO cut or damaged them at some time in the past. I hope they are merely cut and need splicing. I hope he did not remove them!

Any ideas, here?

Thanks!

The terms "PO" and POS" are interchangeable when referring to the guy who used to own my TJ.

Just noticed that there is a forum for lighting. Sorry for the clutter, folks.
