Flashing 3rd Brake Light??

My third brake light flashes like 10 times every time I brake. It's quite annoying and I was wondering if that is something I can fix or do I have to buy a new 3rd brake light to keep it a solid red?

Re: Flashing 3rd Brake Light??

someone must have added one of those flash modules cause I can tell you no WK come from tjhe factory that way.

go remove the light, its 2 small torx IIRC, and see if somehing attached behind there.

Where's that at? Near the fuses or near the brake light?

Re: Flashing 3rd Brake Light??

Mines apparently been burned out for awhile now, it did that once and then it died, it may be shorting itself out on something? Where can you get a new one?

Re: Flashing 3rd Brake Light??

I have one on my motorcycle, got it from 3rdbrakelightflasher.com or something close to that.

Dane, why do you want to stop it from flashing? It's suppose to attract attention from the driver behind you so they don't rear end you.

Re: Flashing 3rd Brake Light??

i fixed it. There was a small black box with the power and ground leading into it so i just cut the thing out. It's working fine now. Who on earth would put that flashing shit on there in the first place?

Re: Flashing 3rd Brake Light??

I think it would be nice at times... I hit traffic occationally on a portion of freeway with cement walls on the left and right, if a car breaks down or if there is an accident there is no avoidance route and it turns into coming around a corner at 65 and mashing on the brakes, I ALWAYS pump the brake pedal when I come up from stopped traffic from at or above the speed limit just to make sure mary behind me putting her makeup on realizes she needs to stop before plowing into me.
