    So I have had problems w/ my trailer lights and finally decided to try to fix it by tapping into the wires straight from the taillights. Looked good I had power and thought all was good. So now I'm gonna move my truck but when I tried to crank it the gages went all the way to the right then when I turned the key over all I got was a clicking sound if I turn the switch off and turn the lights on everything goes dim. I thought I grounded out or something so I went and undid all my work. Now I'm totally stumped. Anybody got any ideas.

    Your point is what? Chevrolet's break down, so do Dodges. Guess what does does Toyota.

    check the alternator just to make sure that it is charging the battery. and why does everything have to become a dammed ford vs chevy vs GMC vs dodge debate? i personly prefer GMC, but i like the ford F-350 and F-450 dually, and i like the looks of a dodge 2500 especialy with the cummins. and i'd give my left nut to have a new toyota tundra quad cab 4x4 as a personal daily driver. ya'll need to grow up and stop with this S and just get along with each others truck. and yes, this is one of the younger guys(17 years old) saying this, so ya'll should be ashamed of yoursleves. the bunch of animals that you are.
