Need help. Have a '68 F100 flareside. My brake lights are always in the "brake" position, meaning it looks like I'm standing on the brakes. This only happens when I also have the lights on, even in the parking light setting. So I spent the last two days re-wiring from the fire wall to the tail lights. Found some mushy 4-wire connections in the bay, fixed them too. Put a new fuse in, turned on my lights, turned my key to ON. Had turn signals at this point. Hooked up my brake switch with my finger on the plunger keeping it off. Let fly on the switch and the 20A fuse blew. Began chasing wires thru the dash, but it's getting dark and I can't think straight after chasing this ghost in the machine. I read the other posts and someone suggested the turn signal switch. Is this correct? With the blown fuse I have ON brake lights, none if the key is off. Hook up the brake switch, and either blow a fuse or start a fire if I try to jump or tin foil it. I need help, this is driving me crazy.
