2002 F-150 Topper wiring question

3 posts in this topic

I recently purchased a pickup topper/cap from a private party for my 2002 F-150 and last night was looking to at least wire up the 3rd brake light.

The place that originally sold the topper tipped me off to look for a lime green wire near the rear driver's side bumper and that would be the "3rd brake light" wire to tap into. They would have been more than happy to help me locate the wire, however, I am in the cities and the company is up in the Fargo/Moorhead area.

I tested a couple of different green wires with my circuit tester and it seems they were all for my left turn signal. I understand that the turn signal is also the brake feed for the tail lights, however I definiately don't want my 3rd brake light blinking every time I make a left turn. They stated there is a "3rd brake light" feed back there. Maybe I missed a green lime wire?

Any help on what wire (color) could possibly be the right feed?

Thanks,

Steve

It would make sense to have it back there, I did some digging in wiring diagrams, the lg brake light wire doesnt go to the back of the truck as far as I can tell. You may have to run a wire from the brake light switch, or just tap into the LG wire at the high mount light, then run a wire back there. The diagram shows the wire to go back there, but when I look at the connectors that are back there, none of them show the wire to be back there.

I did find the wire this weekend. I had started at the trailer hitch wiring and followed it back removing the wire loom. About 18 or so inches back from the trailer hitch it "t's" off to the drivers side taillight. It was there I found it taped off.

Thanks again!

    • Dishwasher for me if I don't get to them right away like thirdeye.
    • I sprayed mine almost a month ago.  An ortho product that seamed to work.  All that's left is the dead grass it choked out.
    • Now that rubechat forums are history....   Lets light this place up...Rubes!
    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
