Only one click up though. You don't want to be dragging the rear brakes.

wouldn't they be connected to the Accessories circuit? maybe it's possible to re-wire it so they aren't part of the accessories circuit and only controlled by the stick on the side of the steering column?

The lights on the Yukon will soon go out, well at least one won't work. I see more of those styled trucks and suv's with only one light working. I wonder why?

[/ QUOTE ] I've noticed the same thing around here. I'd say 80% of the new style Chevy/GMCs I see have one running light burnt out.

I for one like them (But they where in use in Berlin germany back when I was stationed there.) you have alot more visability
with them (Crash avoidance) If you want to turn them off I don't have any good ideas, but the ebrake will turn them off on the 96 tracker.
