You should be able to find the wiring diagram by searching the net. Then stick the wires for the brake light into the thing for the sidelight, which sounds like your plan.

Otherwise go for trial and error, but that might take a little while. When you pull a wire out and the brake light turns off, you know that's your boy.

best thing to do mate is get a mulitimeter out, attach the ground to a known working earth point then use the other wire on the plug. Push the brake with the ignition on and with the pedal pushed the voltage will go upto 12v (or slightly more) and then repeat with the sidelights switched on.

Then you know what colour wires you need to switch round Oh yea remember to get higher wattage bulbs too.



Also have you considered swapping the foglights over with the brake lights?
