Fuse is not blown. Waiting on my friend to bring his multimeter. But now that I think about it, I think I know what’s tripping it ( which is really weird cuz it didn’t happen to others I know).

I got new led bulbs in the headlights which got the resistors and whatnot. And even when I turn my brights on, it doesn’t show on dash, when before it used to. Maybe it’s making some sort of short there?

Go to Harbor freight buy anything get free multimeter. I had one for 10+ years and never let me down. I bought a nice one and chucked it. Ended up getting another free one and now the nice one just hangs on the peg board.

Funny you say that, cuz I was trying to use my HF one right now and literally just took a dump on me so I had to toss it. That’s why I’m waiting on my friend to bring his.

you certainly should always have a test light in your tool box and a multi-meter too if you can swing it, especially for the trail. There's a decent Craftsmen digital multi-meter at Sears for 15-20 bucks, you don't need anything fancy.

you and your buddy who's coming over with the multi-meter will need to do an open circuit test to verify if there's power at the socket. If there is power, ground is bad somewhere. If there is no power, there's an open in that power circuit.

ypu should find and post the 3rd brake light wire diagram, maybe the 3rd brakelight switch/relay is on the negative side of the circuit

Its race season right now
It's kinda end of the season now..

Right now figuring out how we are going to stuff 40's without cutting a bunch of stuff, and without too much hacking to the fiberglass to make them clear at full stuff. New rules changes will allow us to run 40" inch tires, underdrive and most importantly, a bigger motor..20191221_074058.jpg

So thanks to all your guys’ input. Got a multimeter, figuring out there is no power at the wires. Instead of finding the issue and spending a lot of time taking off headliner. I Ran a wire from my tail lights to the third light and made it work.
