Just swapped my EB's dash over.
I labled all the connectors except for the brake switch one... theres two cables that will fit

The one with Green/Red for both wires, the brake lights are on constantly no matter if I press the pedal or not.
The one with the Blue and Orange wires, the brakes don't work if I press the pedal or not.

Which is the correct connector so I can narrow down whats wrong.

So are you running full EF/L dash and BEM?

With the plug that nothing happens, have you tried with the ign on??

I noticed in my conversion that the brake lights only work with ign on, which confused me for some time before i relised.

Oh. So your using the same or same kind of loom?

Well test you brake switch to make sure you didnt bump and f**k it, because thats what it sounds like has happened, and it would have to be the the plug that makes it go on constant.

Try this, it sounds like tha bomb diggity.

Nup, took it out... tested it with a lightbulb, works fine.

Put it back in, still doing the same as before.
I'm getting tempted to solder up a workaround.
