Ok, Have a slight problem, I don't have brake lights on the EB. Indicators, lights work, but fuse is blown on stop lights. If I replace the fuse and turn on the lights it's fine until I hit the brakes, then the fuse blows so I don't think its the brake light switch as it's obviously working cause it's completing the link.

Any ideas would be appreciated, I've run out of them for now.



Genie Headers, Redback 2,1/2 exhaust. BA XR8 Intake.

Recently installed any audio gear into your car? I'd be looking for damaged wiring in the boot & under the rear seat where the loom runs.

I'm also not sure if this is in the right section either.
