I give up. Haynes manual no help here. Got a rusted out "stop light checker" effectively disconnecting the l/h brake light. Tried to by-pass the unit but when a jumper is connected to the r/h light wire the fuse pops. I have a good digital meter but I'm not sure of the circuits at this point and don't want to mess up further. Nor do I need another "checker" . (r/h light is ok as are all other rear light functions on both sides) Ideas??

Replace the unit? I might have one here. I think its in the area where the right rear taillight is, am I right?

Thanks Shawn. Right re location - its a small canister about the size of the intermittent wiper controller and is bolted to the rt. rr. inner fender well and tied into the main harness at that point. Replacement is a last resort at the moment. Anyone else have ideas re:by-passing?

Easy to replace though. I just pulled it from the parts car and sent the car to the crusher. If you want it just pay the shipping and I will find some bubblewrap and a little box.
