Is the connector that fell apart going on to the big stud on the starter?
That could have been your problem all along.
But finally got my login to work and I have verified that the brake lights are hot all the time.
They do not go through any type of control module or relays.
The horns are also hot at all times.
So if these items stop working then the problem is somewhere in the main power from the battery to the fuse box there is a corroded wire or connector that is jut barely allowing enough amps to flow through it to run the lights and little stuff, but when you try to start the engine the amp draw is too much and an "open circuit" happens at the point where the corrosion is.
