Default Raxiom Gen5 tail lights

I installed these today and everything works fine as for the tail lights but my third brake light doesn't come on anymore. I was wondering if that was normal.

Thanks

Damn, I don't have those but that cannot be normal since that third brake light is required by law. Everything plug in well during installation?

I didn't check the bulb I guess I was thinking more a long the lines that it had something to do with tail lights. Ill have to give that a whirl tomorrow when I get a chance

None taken. I know that the head units Raxiom offered were/are garbage. The Tail lights seem to have good reviews so we will see how it goes. Id been going back and fourth on the tail lights for a few years now and thought the hell with it. Lets so how they do. So far I like them unless they are the culprit of my third light not working. Ill dive into that today.

Center should should be wired directly to the brake switch, in case of tail lamp
failure, it still works. The Tails are SBJ controlled, where as the center mount is
a separate circuit to the brake pedal.

Can't find the right diagrams on-line... Just similar ones...

Sure enough the bulb was burnt out. How about that.

I updated mine with an LED:










I can adjust it some by moving the LED closer or farther from the refracting
lens.
