It's me again. I almost have the squeak problem fixed. The parts store doesn't open until tomorrow, I'll know then. In the mean time I tried fixing my right intermitten brake light. After chasing the wire, I discovered that coming down the steering column from the turn signal cam to the plug the red (Brake)wire doesn't have a receiver on the opposite end of the plug! The problem is... How does it get power to make it intermitten, and if there is some sort of jumper in the plug, why else would it be intermitten? Originally I though it was the after market turn signal cam. (I'm still not convinced otherwise). Does anyone have any experience with this? I don't have a wiring diagram, other than the Haynes manual, plus I don't know how to read them. Thanks for the help.

The brake lights in old mustangs are always troublesome.Since its only one side in your case ,it sounds like the builb socket.You may need to bend the socket contacts a little to ensure contact with the builb.The power runs through the turn signal switch,to the brake light switch and then to the rear.
