For those of you that do this regularly, I'm sure this is obvious. But for me, it was an interesting learning opportunity:

The wires for the taillights in my speedway motors harness are yellow, green, and brown. Yellow for left stop and turn, green for right stop and turn, and brown for running lights.

For anyone who has ever had to wire trailer lights, the color scheme is the same! So if you have done one, the same applies to the other.

Hope this helps someone else new to car wiring like me!

"Hey! I sound like Darth Vader!!
GM and Dodge are the same. Ford always seems to want to do their own thing.

If I remember the full monte correctly:

Yellow - Left
Green - Right
Brown (sometimes Black) - running lights
Blue - brakes
Red - Stop lights
White - Ground

Since, these days, most tail lights are combined, red is now used for 12V+. Good for keeping the electric brake breakaway battery charged.
