Default Re: Precedent brake light pad install question

Sergio, I have a 2006 electric Precedent. 12v is always present, headlights and turn signals work even with the key and run/tow off. LED lights in the rear. I am adding a pressure pad switch on the face of the brake pedal. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe I can still jump the green/white and solid blue wires and leave out the relay, as current will only flow through the brake light circuit when my foot is on the switch. I'm thinking that the relay and timer is more for the stock switch, which is closed when the parking brake is on.

Sripes136. I believe that Sergio IS saying that you will need a second relay that is activated by your brake pedal to power your brake lights.

Answered my own question. Jumped the green/white and blue wires. No power at the switch connectors. Checked all the wires at the nine-pin connector to the turn signal switch. Brake light wire was pushed out. Not enough to see, but far enough not to be making connection. Once that was corrected I had power to the switch. Pressure switch wires are as thin as headphone wires - 22 gauge at best - they'd probably act like a fuse and burn up with incandescent light bulbs. Anyway, it's passed the smoke test and I have brake lights.

I ordered a relay and may put it in the circuit if I get motivated.

I think You should definitely use a relay for incandescent lights, even for LEDs if they are more than 4 watts for each rear brake light.

Those pressure switches are normally not designed to handle much current.

If you drive your cart at night, these strobes are really good for LED lights:

Under 10 watts of LEDs:

More than 10 watts of LEDS:
