Thanks for the info but I should have explained a little more.
There is a connecter cable of 3 wires that goes across the rearof the trunk from one set of lights to the other. At some point, someone had replaced the wires on one side and joined them to the three wires coming from the other side. Unfortunately, the new wires are not the right color code.
At the moment, the wires from the drivers side come from the turn signal, reversing light and brake light circuit, so are basicaly the three vertical terminals of the connector block. On the passenger side, they go to completely different circuits.
I have all my lights and hazards working on the car without joining these wires but cannot get the turn signals to work. I connected them in a way that the turn sigals worked but using the brakes caused the circuits to fuse. Basicaly, I have tried a buch of solutions over several hours which haven't worked and have left me with a pile of blown uses. I have fully checked, cleaned and made sure all connections are working and there are no bad grounds or faulty bulbs.
I am guessing the drivers side is correct as the wire colors match the right circuit as described above. If someone could take a look and tell me which wire from the left goes to which terminal on the right, it would be really helpful.
