After finding that my stop lights were staying on, I unplugged the connector to the switch, and the lights still stayed on.
In the '87-'89 lighting system diagram in Haynes it shows a wire from the stop light switch going to the rectangular "stop light checker" which is grounded.
To be able to drive the wagon safely i would like to isolate that wire, which is apparently grounded, and replace it with another one, but--
Where is the "stop light checker" located?

Thanks, but the parking lights are not on, which is OK with me. I can do without them--illegal to drive with them anyway--but I can't risk driving with stop lights that are not functioning properly.
