Best thing you can do is stripe and rip.. (carefully) the complete Bulldog system off your vehicle. I see so many splices and dices into every possible wire or harness connection from some of these alarm systems I now say 10-20% of problems are from immobilize or Anti thief systems. Regards, Once its cleaned up you can track down the brake lighting issue.

Any suggestions on which site to go to for a complete hire to remove one. I found one lastnight but it wasn't for a truck
