Electrical Demon question.
I have noticed here in the past 2-3 times Ive driven he truck, that the brake lights come on all of a sudden. I notice it because my little brake controller lights up. I have not verified that the rear brake lights were on, but I'd swear to it cause i saw the reflection in the back window from the third brake light. Sometimes I can smell some electrical burning also, smells like its inside the truck, but I can smell it under the hood also. Its not constant, just hit and miss. kinda like the brake lights, sometimes they come on, then they go off. its weird.
Where would I start looking for this problem? I thought about taking the brake controller loose and doing away with it. The wires were cut from the bed mounted plug(where 5th wheel was) some time ago. I tapped the brake controller, and it did nothing for the light.(was looking for possible loose wires and such.)
could it be a faulty brake switch on the brake pedal?
any help is much appreciated!
