wiring issue!?!

Asked by Dec 29, 2010 at 01:05 AM about the 1977 Jeep CJ5

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just bought a 77 cj5. The tail lights need some work. The previous owner installed two
new light assemblies. Well needless to say it wasn't done right. I spent 2 hours trying to fix
the mess. But how do you connect a 3 wire assembly to 4 wires???? Every way I tried didn't
work. Can any one help me with this??

1 Answer

675

What does the 4th wire run? There should be running lights brake lights and backup lights. Why not replace with original equipment?
