where is connector for z tech rack
 
got rack fitted but couldnt find wiring for led light
i read on a past post that they have been found behind trunk light
should i take that out and have a look? mine is a 99 lt
i also read one where someone spliced into brake light which ran up behind speaker, if this is the case is it a singular wire? and what colour is it
any advice will sure be appreciated

Pull the courtest light in the top case. The wire is taped to the wire for the trunk light and it's a beotch to get loose. But it's there.


Good Luck

John

I got a dentists angled mirror and a flash light. Wouldn't have wanted to pull as hard as I had to on a wire I wasn't sure of

Thin pliers will do it, but make sure you have the right wire!! ;-)
