4.2 TRUCK SIDE BRAKE/TURN SIGNAL WIRING

On the 2009 – 2012 truck, there is a separate plug for the brake/turn light and for the reverse light. This section covers the brake/turn light wiring required.

1.) Take the H13/9008 male connector and grind off the locking tab. This will allow the connector to fit into the truck female connector.





2.) Leaving yourself approximately 6-inches of wiring, you will want to connect your LED Tail Pigtail wires to the H13/9008 male connector, as identified below.



3.) At this time you will need to wire up a load resistor to prevent your 2009-2012 truck from showing a “Bulb Out” error message. The load resistor must be connected between the ground and brake/turn driver.
a. Extend the power leads from the load resistor to a length of approximately 6 inches.
b. Connect one side to ground, and the other side to the brake/turn signal wire.





4.2 TRUCK SIDE REVERSE LIGHT WIRING

On the 2009 – 2012 truck, there is a separate plug for the brake/turn light and for the reverse light. This section covers the reverse light wiring required. The 2013+ LED tails use a 7443 reverse light, which is more powerful than the 921 style light used in the earlier trucks, which means the existing reverse wiring must be adapted to the 2013+ LED tail wiring.
The 2013+ LED tails share a common ground between the reverse light and brake/signal lights, whereas the 2009-2012 trucks have separate ground for the reverse and brake/signal lights. Due to this, the ground from the 2009-2012 reverse light will not be used for this installation.

1.) Take the male EV6 style connector, and connect the reverse light driver as follows:
