RE: re: [T3] Proper operation


<x-charset iso-8859-1>Yes, there are quite a few vehicles which share the filament with the
turnsignal and brake light.  I believe this is why there was such a
significant decrease in rear collisions when the federal government
legislated center-mount brake lamps in 1986.  The latest feature I have
noticed is the flashing centermount brake lamp on a new Lincoln Town Car (a
hideous land yacht).

I was under the impression that some US cars (not VWs) used the brake light
filament as the indicator, so if you turn while braking one brake light is
on constant, and the other is flashing. I wasn't suggesting that the brake
lights blink on and off as you stop ;-)
