Hey guys. I've got recon taillights and 3rd brake light and an aftermarket light bar from eBay that ran about 80 bucks...

I noticed upon install the difference between the running function of the lights and the actual brighter brake function is not very much of a brightness difference....

Didn't think much of it until someone actually flagged me down the other day and told me that tho it looks great he almost hit me because he couldn't tell when I was braking bc there was not much brightness difference...

Anything I can do about this to make the difference brighter? I got all these leds primarily for safety so people see me better, and they arent doing there job, I have been rear ended once as well and my hitch destroyed the fromt emd of a taxi thatdidnt stop in time, i saw her texting so it wasn't my lights fully at fault but still..... I'm very good at wiring but not so knowledgeable of relays, transistors and the like

Any circuit I can set up to increase brightness difference of my brake lights, turn signals and 3rd brake light?

Unplug your ebay light bar and see if that fixes it. They look cool but I have seen them mess up all kinds of things before. I had a buddy that his shorted out or something and blew every fuse in his truck

I put led plug in style bulbs in my old truck and they threw all out of whack. They made my 3rd brake light stay on and caused my abs light to come on. Maybe there is a problem with the taillights themselves.
