Rear LED light bar help!

Hey guy I just bought a three light led bar that usually goes on trailers and such but anyway, the grounds itself by touching the metal and my question to you is what wore can I tap into in the rear that I can have it on when my light are on and gets brighter when I hit the brakes, thanks!

Most of those lights are trailer identification lights, meaning the lights are on or off. Did you get one that actually is a brake light and a running light? How many wires come from the unit? If it's one of these:



It's a trailer identification light and can only be a brake light or a running light depending on which wire you tap into, not both.

I decided that I want to run it as a rear running light since its new and was free anyway, so what wire in the trailer hook ups can I splice?

If you want them to be both run and stop lights you need to install Eclipze Module

works great. Have installed quite a few of this on boat trailers to give more brake light
