3rd brake light works but the other brake lights do not. I have no power from the white wire from the connector on the steering column. I did the search and found out it may be the turn signal. I want to cover all my bases so I changed the brake switch, bought the turn signal and I have a steering column on the way. My question is do I need to change that lil box out too and if so what is it actually called? What does it do? Thanks in advance.

the box is for the keyfab/lock unlock doors ...nothing to do with the lights.

Sounds like your turn signal switch is bad.

The 3rd brake light does not run through the switch.

not on mine

Mine is a 9c1. I should have said that. My box that I'm speaking of has a relay molded into it and wires sticking out of it. When I first bought the car I figured it was something not needed anymore so I cut the wires... Wrong move. No tails/brake or any lights it the rear. I tried to get one fron autozone to replace it but I don't know what its called. My car didn't come with the lock/unlock keyfob as an option. These wires coming out of the relay box go directly to the rear brake light harness.

Don't forget, 9c1, could be some sort of wig-wag module for rear tail lights.

Black relays behind the back seat are for the 6J6 rear 'lollipop' brake lights on the 9c1 police package.

lollipop?... huh?

Does that mean it could be a bad relay? Can it be taken out and rewired? Do I have to have it? If so where can I get another one? Could you explain please because I've got more questions now than when I started.

LS,

I sent you a "PM" (Private Message) about posting photos, which you can access by clicking on the "Private Messages" in the upper right-hand corner of this screen (you may need to scroll back up to the top to see it).

HTH.

picture sent

I emailed a picture to wolf and fooserguy. When they get a chance one of them will post it for me. If some has the color codes for a 96 9c1 and I can just cut this thing out you can consider the black box gone!!! I'm holding until someone can confirm that I don't need it.
