Brake lights quit working
I was adding an LED brake light kit to my 2000 LT. I ran the wire off the harness behind the rear lens up under the top case and out to the light strip. Anyway, to make a long story short, I pinched the wires while installing the top case and shorted out the brake lights. I assumed it would have blown a fuse but upon checking, I noticed that the fuse was a 15 amp while the manual calls for a 4 amp. ( I suppose the PO did this??)
The fuse did not blow and I do not have any brake lights. I checked the bulbs and they are all good, so do you guys think I blew the brake light relay? I did some research in the archives and from what I can tell, I need to take off the right side tupperware, and the relay is somewhere under the gas tank? Is this correct? By the way, I am supposed to leave in the morning for a trip through the Ozark mountains with another couple, I don't think that will be happening....
