Brake Light Tap On 2003 Jeep Wrangler
Have searched this forum but still would like suggestions on the best place to tap into the 2003 Wrangler's brake light circuit to power the LED to be installed in the coach cockpit. Am in the process of installing a Roadmaster BrakeMaster
We acquired the Jeep with our previous motor home and it included a Brake Buddy which worked fine with it and continues to work flawlessly while being towed by our current coach, a 2003 Windsor. I'm replacing it to gain some storage room that was needed when the Brake Buddy was not in use. The BrakeMaster should be quicker to hook up and unhook too.
The Jeep brake lights come on when the coach brakes are applied or when the Brake Buddy applies the Jeep brakes. The directional lights work as designed. It's all seamless and there are no conflicts. No fuses have to be removed and no switches need to be flipped when hooking up the Brake Buddy.
I need to find an accessible wire in the Jeep that goes "hot" with 12VDC when the Jeep's brake pedal is depressed. NOT when the coach's brakes are applied but when, and only when, the Jeep's pedal is depressed. This is needed to illuminate the LED indicator in the coach to show that the BrakeMaster is applying the Jeep's brakes when it's supposed to.
Naturally the coach brake lights should continue to illuminate the Jeep brake lights as they do now.
