That is not it.

X1 has a light blue wire close to that one.

X1, X4 and X6 have light blue wires.

What do you mean by "close to that one"? I do see other light blue wires, but not in position 2.

I don't have a diagram of the connectors for markings of the X. You will need to do an ohm check from the third light to the light blue wire. You may have to check the ones on the connectors that have light blue wires.

Hi again. So, I was wrong, that wire was actually just a little different shade of blue. The diagram is accurate. I found a damaged wire and repaired it. Now with everything back together, I still have no power at that terminal number 2 leaving the BCM.

Okay, if you found the wire from the BCM to the third light and repaired it and there is no power when the brake is applied, then the BCM is the issue.

Okay, isn't odd that the only thing not working is that light considering all it controls?

Yes, but that module controls about 100 things or more and if there was an issue with the wiring such as a ground on the power wire, it may have damaged the internal control circuit just for that section.

You need to replace the BCM and have it programmed to your truck. This is a module that must be programmed.

Thanks, but it's a 2500. Who does the programming? Dealership?

Any shop with a Tech 2 scan tool. It can be any private shop and they will be much cheaper.

A dealer will be more than double a private shop.
