Brake light Electrical Problems solved

I thought I would post how my problems were fixed in case anyone has the same thing happen.

I had all kinds of crazy sh&t happening.
First the brake lights where failing and it caused my truck to continue running while I turned off the key. As soon as I pressed the brake pedal the engine would die. This also caused my interior(SW) lights to come on when I pressed the brake. Then my multi-function ECU light up in smoke.......Recently I had some fuses blowing on the fuel pump and the rear right and right front marker lights where dimming....with some great advice from this site everyone seemed to agree there was a short somewhere in the harness. SO the whole wiring harness was pulled out of the frame, not very hard I was told. Large sections of the harness where worn down to bare metal in three areas from rubbing inside the frame rail. These areas were siting in water pools inside the rails. Replaced a few of the bad sections, taped the hell out of it to water proof it and tucked it up against the fuel line leaving it outside the rails.

Everything works for a very small repair bill!

This site rules.......oh and so does this

Great place to buy Rover parts:
