Hi Guys,
Can anyone tell me if there is a way to hook up your brake lights and turn signal lights on the same bulbs? my problem is that when I bought my 69 camaro the tail lights on the outside bulb are running lights and turn signal,as for the inside bulb it is the running light and the brake light, I don't think that this is correct nor do I like the way it looks,I saw a 69 camaro the other day and his turn signal was flashing with both inner and outer bulbs so I know it is possible,I didn't get to see how his brake lights worked but I imagine they were the same as the turn signals,it looks alot better and also normal when both inner and outer lenses are flashing and braking so could someone please let me know if your's or someones 69 camaro uses both inner and outer bulbs to run the running lights,brake lights,and the turn signal lights,please let me know how I have to wire it to correct to my problem.

My 68 is that way stock. The inner set of lights are white and are for the back up lights only. The outrer set of lights has a dual filament bulb. There are three wires from the socket --- one is ground (negative) the other two are positive (one from the brakes and one from the turn signal).

Not sure how 69's are wired stock.

ps. This thread would probably get more replies is it were posted in the electrical section.

If you have the standard 69 tail lights, the change is easy as I did this. Buy new lamp sockets for the 1157 bulb and splice them where the bulb is not flashing. I have a standard set up and NOW both the inner and outer bulbs flash and the same bulbs light up whrn the brake is applied. The other solution is to replace the tail light harness in the trunk with a RS harness.
