Hooking led lights to my 570 and 450.
Have a wire off led package that connects to brake light so all led's light up red when applying brakes. So,put test light on each of 3 wires on 570 and easily found the brake light wire,as test light lit when applying brakes. Went to 450 and none of the wires I test confirm brake light, 1 wire gets no light up from test light, 1 wire lights up right away with test light and stays lit when applying brakes,& the last wire is hot too but test light goes out when applying brakes. Why is this happening?

Brake light on the 450 is the brown wire with a white stripe - brown is ground and red with a brown stripe is the taillight. What color are the wires you are checking?

The 570 EFI, X2, EPS & PREM use the same color code - the 570 ETC used an orange wire for the brake light

yes, the brown with white stripe should be the brake light wire but when Iput test light on it the test light goes out instead of being not live when applying test light to it and lighting up when hitting the brakes,instead test light reads hot upon touching withtest light and goes out when applybrakes? What the heck?
