So my running light, all of them front and back no longer work properly. They only turn on when the brake light should.
Let me explain what I have done.
I just replaced all my lights with LEDs. In the front it was just plug and go.
In the rear, I replaced brake light with an LED and the rear TS got relocated to the license plate holder and got some LED that also have red running lights and brake lights (as well as amber flashers.) This obviously required a lot of wiring, which I know I did correctly because it all worked fine after installation. I tapped into the Blue wire from the tail light for the brake light, and the red light for the running lights. I also changed the relay to a LED Flasher Relay.
So I figure, 1 of 2 scenarios...
1) Grounding out-probably somewhere I wired since I didn't mess with the existing grounds.
2) Running Light wires somehow got crossed with brake light wire. I only suspect this because the way I wired the extra wires from the rear TS pass through a very tight spot and maybe the insulation wore off and they are touching?.?
Anyone have any suggestions how I should proceed? I am thinking about redoing all the wiring and getting rid of the bullet connections with some 3 or 4 wire connectors (depending on if they are for front or rear), and bundling everything from all the lights to make it nice and neat.
