03 AIH Outlaw wiring issue

Hey i found your fourm and hoping someone here can help me out. I have an 03 AIH Outlaw and have a problem with the rear lights. Running lights work fine but blinkers and brake lights are very dim. So dim i have to unhook running lights just to see them working. Volt meter is showing 7-8 volts to blinker and with brake. I have tried running a new ground but same problem. Everything else is 12.1. After doing research it looks like the smart signal has gone out? Am i on the right track here?
Was looking at the NAMZ Hot Box if it is my smart signal that is going out. Has anyone here tried one?
Thanks so much for the help guys much appreciated!
Jeremy

Sounds like your troubleshooting is on track....Majority of the time it is a bad ground..I had the same kind of problem with my bad lands box so I just wired in a cheap blinker bought of ebay..
I hate the smart junk..sorry I can't help you..

Thanks for the reply! I think i will just go that route so maybe i dont spend $ on another set of problems. Is it ok to just tap the power from the brake switch and wire it to the lights or should i put a relay on it?

it does not matter where the 12v comes from . You don't need a relay for the brake lights, however if you want your blinkers to stay on after you let off the button, you will need a latching relay...I did not use one ..I don't mind holding the button down...it makes it simple.. As long as the idiots behind me know I'm turning..I'm ok..
