    Well, I finally got my new Chevy 3500 cab & chassis. I had a flatbed installed, but the flatbed came with 2 red lights and 1 clear on each side. The chevy is set up for 1 amber, 1 red, 1 clear. So now my bed is wired wrong and I have to go figure it out. Mash the brakes, and all the turn signals stay on. Guess I had better get started tracing it out.

    Its easy to make your lights work I don't know what type of lights you are using are they Grote or Truck Lite ?

    What you need is lights that are stop,tail and turn I assume your lights are the wrong ones.

    You just need to pull the plugs out of the back of the current lites and take a test light to see which wire is what.

    After a few cuts, splices, and new wires I got it fixed. :)

    Not yet. Once I get them, how do I post them here. I tried posting pics on another site and they are usually too large.

    thanks
