    Now why would you want to do that?
    I do have full electrical wiring diagram for 80-87. I would be happy to scan and send them to you if it would help.

    It appears the switching is done in the directional. When the brake is applied the power goes to the grn and yel to turn on the brake lights. When a turn signal is introduced the appropiate wire is "disconnected" from the brake power lead and sent to the flasher which turns the light on and off isolated from the brake. The only way I see you can do it is run a seperate wire and add a new brake light

    No need to get pissed off, Man. I'm with Eagle86K5 on this one trying to figure out what you are asking. Are you saying that when you step on the break pedal, all your turn signals come on.??????? I don't get that from your post, just guessing, but if this is your problem, we can help you, but not if you don't explain it.

    so, basically, the turn signal activates the brake lights, one side at a time? damn.
    i guess i will have to run a wire back there. i was hoping to avoid that.
    i want to use separate lights for my turn signals, not the combo brake/turn/marker light.

    and i wasn't pissed.

    well you misunderstood...
    the wire with the power goes to the brake switch, from there it goes to the turn signal switch, when in the neutral mode allows the power to be sent to BOTH back lights for braking. When you press on the brakes the power is sent to both lights. Now when you use the turn signal, it interrupts the wire going to the appropiate light and sends it to the flasher to make the light on that side blink. It would be easy to isolate them if you want.
    And if you want better explaination we can go to the chat room if you like.

    ok, i want to isolate them.
    i cut the yellow wire at the socket, and ran it to another light. now the other light lights up when i use the turn signal, like i wanted. but the brakes also activate this light, and don't activate the bulb in the original socket.

    Now go to the brake light switch and run a new wire from it back to the light you cut the wire off of.

    okay you already cut the yellow wire from one side to a new light, now run the green from the other side to the other light. Then run the power wire(the one with 12volts on it with the pedel pushed down) to the rear lights that you just cut the wire off of. Now when you push down on the pedel the rear lights should come on . And when you hit the turn signal it shoul illuminate the new lights.
