I have found that the ignition switch needs to be on for the jeep brake light to function. Anyone have tips for wiring the notification light in a 2015 wrangler?
If you are still searching for this answer, I have it.
The blue wire that runs between the operating unit and the breakaway goes 12v hot when the system operates. I would attach the red wire from the LED to this blue wire and keep the same ground to the black wire. When this is done the LED will illuminate every time the system activates.
On a side note, my experience with those wranglers makes me think if the jeep is set in tow mode, that switch will be active.
If you have not checked for power with the jeep set to tow, That may help you out.
Best of luck and happy trails!
