    Default Brake lights.....???

    OK , I removed the dash in my 72 so I could replace all of the bulbs in the dash. I replaced the dash, hooked everything back up and started the car, perfect except for one thing.
    I can not find the wires to the brake lights! Off of the brake pedal is a small switch with two wires that signals the brake lights to come on when pedal is pushed...I can not find the wires that are supposed to connect to this spot!!

    I looked all over...what happened.

    Can someone look at their Z and see from what direction those two wires come from? Firewall, upper dash, side of car ?? ? ? color of wires ???

    any help greatly appreciated.

    They come out of the harness bundle on the steering column, and both wires are typically green with a white trace.

    At least, that is true on a '71. A '72 might be different.
