Does just splicing the 2nd set of globes into the existing wiring dim the 1st set at all (for any that have made both sets of lights work as tail and brake)

not that i noticed. they are in parallel when you splice them in like that so all it does is drop the overall resistance and increase the current

It will drain on your car
Nwo I don't know if that model has what the 626 has which is a rear tail light warning system to tell you when your rear brakes lights out but!

take note your adding current or load where it is not desgined for. The J-spec cars usually I find have this already covered.
If you note when you complie a full J-spec car, we cut the 2nd set to meet ADR rule's Syline a good example a fully complied one will only either have one setof tails and two brakes or one tail and two brakes.

on the mazda's it's removed automaticly in the factory.

In most cases easy fix, as I've seen it done on mazda's toyotas and pulsar alot. Increase your battery size or best a better Alternator , preferbly not the crap mitsubishi unit. Get a good Bosch with lots of low down amps and you will find you will have no problem.

I've have plans for my own with different boot lid and 2nd series lights yet I'm only putting in the 5watt tails but also I've already got the mouting.

oh yeah other way to stop current draw and it's quite good - use LED's for the tails.

i just did this mod $2.50 per socket from the wreckers with globes. Only thing is when you have the lights on and then hit the brake pedal, the lights go out for the second set of brake lights.

I swapped over the 2nd set of bulbs with the bulbs from my original set of brake lights and they started doing the same thing. The filaments are in tact but it wont light up the second filament.

I'm thinking about trying new bulbs. Any idea wheres the best place to get replacement brake light globes?

your wiring is the wrong way around...get a test light and rewire the sockets...

doh! test light... thats what i should have asked for christmas!

I just grabbed the sockets off an existing BG at pick and payless in blacktown. So yeh, if anyone is in search of a rear tail lights for a BG there, make sure you check to see if the brake light sockets are still there!
