Well the wire works, but it is posing a new question.
To those who have done this mod so far, here is the question:
Go outside, get in your car, and step on the brakes. Does ANYTHING light up? Note, I did not say, put your lights on. Nor, did I say, turn the car on.
I just finished connecting the jumper wire, the coding was already done. When I step on the brake pedal without the car on, nothing happens, not even the third brake light turns on. When I step on the brake pedal with the taillights on and the car off, nothing happens. When I step on the brake pedal with the car on, and lights off or on, my brake lights function.
Is anyone else having this issue? Did we miss something?
