2021 ford ranger third brake light

Anyone have any insight on installing the third brake light connection on a 2021 ranger? I am absolutely useless when it comes to this and could use a little help. More specifically, which wire do I tap. Thanks!

Following because i have the same question. Do you have the LED tailights with BLIS?

I will try to pull my tail light and look at which wire i tapped into tomorrow.
I have the blis and led.

That would be awesome! Thanks

I just did this last week on my '19 ranger, stock led lights with blind spot. The ranger hasn’t seen a true update yet so 2019 should be same as current. Got this diagram off ranger5g and worked like a charm. This is labelled as a left tail light but it seemed to be flipped horizontally for me, so pay attention to the layout in regards to where the clip and the empty positions are. If I remember correctly, the positive at position two was red, and the ground at one just next to it was black. Open your tailgate and remove the two screws with a socket wrench on the inside of the taillight, then pull straight back on the outer edge of the taillight. Don’t be gentle; it sticks hard, especially the top clip. You have to strip the conduit back a bit to access the cables but it’s easy to push back in place once you’re done; I’d recommend some electrical tape to add back in some weather protection. Here’s the original 5g post which was for a softtopper: https://www.ranger5g.com/forum/threads/third-brake-light-for-softopper.6784/

Beat me to it, thanks for saving me pulling my break light housing to check it again!

I was waiting to see who was gonna post this! @aglissmann, I was about to go pull mine apart to see as well! I personally drilled a small enough hole for the wire near the top, and inside the bed, of the tail light. Added a drop of silicone to seal the rest of the hole and everything works like a charm.

Got it wired up! Thanks everyone.

Here are pics using the gfc supplied taps.
