re: Brake lite problems
You might want to check the wiring that goes from the left trunk area and
connects to the truck lid. It runs next to the left side hinge. Myself and
others have had problems with the wiring breaking and fraying from the
constant flexing caused by opening and closing the trunk.

| Hi again, Y'all,
| Well, here I am again with more problems. :-(
| Now my brake lights are not working at all. The ground

| may be faulty. Just one problem. I couldn't find a switch
| on the pedal. :-(
| Oh, I'm dealing with an '89 200TQ.

| master cylinder(^ that's s'posed to be a "p" above here).
| Have I found the

| bad switch? It ain't nuthin' like I expexted to find.
| (Maybe I should get
| me a set of Bentleys?)
| Recent repair history:
| turbocharger intercooler replaced
| turbocharger hose replaced
| several belts replaced
| brake pressure accumulator replaced
| left front wheel bearings replaced
| Coming up:
| brake pads all around
| struts inserts
| My project for the coming week: get the bloomin' brake
| lights working.
| Any suggestions/advice will be greatly appreciated.
