Thanks, but I'm slightly confused. The bottom (red) bulb has two filaments. A dim one for running lights and a bright one for brake lights.

Did you connect the brown wire to the dim filament or the bright filament?

It kind of sounds like you did what Bob did and wired the red brake filament and the amber turn filament together.

I did not wire them together.

The Red light uses both filaments and the Amber only one.

I wired G/Y and return to Amber then Brown and return to Red. Choosing which of the light bulb wires to go to return made the G/Y signal from the Amber affect the Red light, confusing but it works.

I tried wiring everything to Red but then the signal lights at the top of Mouse blinked with the turn signals - very weird.

This doesn't sound right ?? Are you calling the white/ground wire "return" ? The ground wire goes to the bulb socket, or housing, not to a wire that contacts the points on the bottom of the bulb. On my Uhaul, the tail light ground is a white wire that is attached at the top bulb socket. Bob
