Back Off brake light install question
« on: July 15, 2013, 12:54:34 pm »
I have a Back Off unit for my brake lights.

Question: which wire do I splice into for the brake lights, is it the black and yellow one?  ::)

You'll need to use the BLUE wire that goes to the brake lights.  The BLACK/YELLOW wire is the ground.

My two cents...

When I read the documentation that came with my Back Off light kit, I needed to refer to my Clymer's manual in the back pages for the proper color wire to splice.  Nice to have a manual when the Internet is not around.
