    I purchased some new rear taillights for my 87 Chevy Stepside. The wiring must be all wrong since the brake light is now the reverse light and the running lights are not really bright.

    I have three wires coming out of the bed... yellow, green and brown.
    The wires from the lights (purchased at Classicparts.com) Ones Brown, white, and red.

    Two are together and one is seperate. If any one can help me out with what wires go to what I would appreciate. I am looking for the wire id on the truck and I will figure out the lights.

    Just checking if you ever got this problem figured out???
    the brown is of course for tail lights. Ter green and yellow is for break lights and signal for left and right.... Which two are together??? the white is normally ground on most of the lights coming out now the red would be hot, and the bround would be tail light. Hope this solved your question....
