    Brake light wiring and turn signal

    Hi there, I tried searching and couldnít find anything definitive. If itís there I apologize as I write this on my lunch.

    Bought new turn signals that also taps into the brakes. Anyone know which one the positive and negative is in the turn signal without using a multimeter?

    Also the brakes have three wires Iím guessing one is for like a running light cause itís always on and one is the one for when you press the brake (3rd obviously negative). Anyone knows which one is which? Didnít wanna have to buy a multimeter to check.

    Plan is to use the factory wiring harness from old turn signal and solder it to the new turn signal and Iím gonna cut the one for the brakes for the brake function of the turn signal.

    And I guess while weíre at it, front turn signals taps into the DRL too so same question 😁

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    Multimeters are cheap. However, have you tried just connecting it to a pair of the turn signal wires on the new taillight? If it lights up, then you're good. If not, flip them.
