Default Help with pressure brake switch

I have installed a Redhawk deluxe light kit on my 2010 Club Car precedent. I have the lights and turn signals working, but I can't seem to get the brake lights working. Unfortunately there are no instructions with the brake switch or harness and no wiring diagram. There are three wires (red, black and brown) that come out of the main harness that connect to the brake switch harness. I'm not getting any power there and with no wiring diagram to try and troubleshoot I'm stuck. Anyone have experience with this kit and application?

Default Re: Help with pressure brake switch

I have one of these.... Typically the way it works, is the rear lights will already have a power source and a negative to them to light them up.

The Negative (not calling it ground since you're not grounding to the frame on a cart)is the only negative you need since it will complete any circuit at the light receptacle. At the tail lights you should have three leads:

1. 12v + for the running lights
2. 12v + for the brake lights, turn signals.
3. 12v - to act as ground.

So with this switch or any brake light switch what you normally have to do is run an additional circuit to the tail lights... So 12v + to the switch from the power source, then back to the lights from the switch to the lead that is the +12v for the brake lights, turn signals. The light receptacle already has a negative so when you hit the brake light switch, bam you have lights.

So in short... you have two, possibly three circuits going to the tail lights.
