Hey all. I decided to swap out the bulky fender for a slim-lined tail light. I went with the British Customs fender eliminator kit, since it's a bolt-on, "plug and play" option. So I thought.

First, I removed the fender and unplugged the factory tail light. That was the only thing that was unplugged.
I then mounted the underbody plate and tail light, and plugged the tail light in. From there, I plugged my turn aftermarket signals into their respective plugs using the BC turn signal adapters, which prevent me from having to splice any wires.

Now, none of my turn signals work. Even the front ones, which were working fine before. I then unplugged the aftermarket light and turn signals, thinking something was defective, and still nothing on the front signals. I plugged in the original, stock tail light and signals. NOTHING.

Not only that, but the brake light is no longer engaging. Occasionally, it will completely turn the light off, but a few minutes later, it goes back to doing nothing. Attempting to, again, rule out a defective part, I plugged the stock unit back in and the brake is no longer activating the brake light on the original unit.

Could I suddenly have a grounding issue? What else may be causing these mishaps? I am completely perplexed.

Starting with the most basic, have you checked the fuses? The fuse box is under the righ hand side cover. I think it's fuse no 7 for brake lights and indicators but you can double check in the handbook

Not sure of his year, my ‘15 has #7 to indicator relay and #10 to brake/tail light(side light as well, if you are bone stock).
