[V6-12v] Stoplights cont'd

The fuse was fine, given I was looking at the right one, number 6 in the 
box, 5A fuse.  I did some fiddling and all four lights (the two old lights 
and the two purchased lights) worked fine, so whatever is wrong is something 
in the wiring from the switch to the light itself.  I was under the 
impression that the lights I am talking about are turned on when the brake 
is pressed, I am correct, right?  I wish I had my technical manual CD here 
instead of back at school.  Anywho, hopes this triggers some help.  Thanks 
in advance, Nathan.
