Yeah.

The blinker and brake on the 06 got to the major side on the 07.

For the 06 wiring look at this link.....ignore most BUT look at the lower corners. That shows the 5 wires and their id.

Then the upper corners show the 3 wire plug from the 07.

Basically you combine brake and blink and everything else is 1 to 1.

Re: from06 harness to 07+ rewire tails

Is this for connecting to an after market LED? Or is it for stock to stock. Oh, and thank you!

You need to ignore most of this diagram. You don't need that box in the middle.


The 06 harness has 5 wires. Lower corner of diagram explains what they are.

07 Tail has a 3 wire and a 2 wire. 2 wire is reverse and ground. 3 wire is br/bl, park, and ground.

The 06 has a brake and blink separate. You need to combine those and put to the br/bl on the 07. Everything else is just wire for wire.

If this us still confusing please describe exactly what you are doing or trying to do .

Not too confused, but the box in the middle was my question. That answers it though. Seems pretty simple. This is for someone else that I'm switching smoked tails with and he needed to know before he sent me his tails, because he bought a new stock set online and they were 06 wired. Thank you very much!

Rob, you don't happen to have a schematic to wire up the rear fogs on an srt? I'd like to make a harness. Also I would like to put LED bulbs in them. Thanks!

I never had the rear fogs so can't help there. But it can't be hard.

Just need to find a bulb holder that fits. Try some Google searches

Re: from06 harness to 07+ rewire tails

I thought one of the vendors was selling an adapter harness, it was not cheap though, $100 I think.

Exactly. 100 for 2 small sockets from the HELP rack. Few feet of wire and split loom.

I am serious about the HELP section. I can recall some char on the red site MANY MOONS ago. Try a google.

If you get the sockets then I would buy a trailer wire kit that goes between the plug and the housing. Chop that up to meet the needs you want for the fogs. Like brake and blink or just lights or whatever.

Re: from06 harness to 07+ rewire tails

I guess I could just wire a few wires from the brake/ blink wires, but for LED's I might have to incorporate a resistor somewhere. Hmmm! Anybody that has anything would be appreciated.

If you add led in the rear fogs BUT have a regular bulb in tail no resistor needed.

You can easily tap whichever wire you want. I use the hitch wiring so no cutting PNP.

The only thing we need is a socket that works in the rear fog. If you want brake and blink you need a 2 filament bulb and a 3 wire socket.
