Fixing the van taillights

Standard

I finally made some time to fix the taillight issue in Wun Tunn Zoop

 

My issue with my taillights is pretty common. What happens, at least in my case, is that when I hit the brakes with the headlights on one side dims out. It comes down to a short in the harness. These harnesses are readily available because of this very common issue on the Express vans. I have had the two new pigtails for a while now but have put off putting them in. And I am replacing both just because. I like my brake lights to work right!

It wasn’t too hard just a lot of trim to remove in order to get t o the inner structure where the cable hooks to the harness. Once that was all removed then it was a pretty simple r&r of the individual taillight harnesses. Then a quick light check validated that all the work paid off and the stop lights work as advertised. Excellent!

So I feel a whole lot better and can drive at night with no issues. On to the next project.
