There's been a couple threads recently talking about the brake light diodes on our chassis.

Recently while Installing the BrakeSwitch I was working under the dash and cut several wire ties that held the brake light diodes in place. I thought a picture of them might be handy in case anyone needed to replace them.

The brake light diodes are to separate the signals coming from the exhaust brake and brake pedal switch which both energize the brake lamp relay.

Ignore the notes about wiring, since that was for the BrakeSwitch. The brake light diodes are the cylindrical tubes about 3 inches long covered in black heatshrink tubing.

Yeah, I was gonna pipe up about that 3-way splice yesterday, but never said nuttin'. I shun those little blue splice connectors; seems they always need revisiting a couple years down the road. JMHO.
