I Added a 3 rd LED brake /tail light above the hitch I installed . It operates as a regular Third brake light ; I also added two additional brake lights on My Yamaha FJR . None of them flash unless i tap brake pedal.

I did it to my '09 Subaru years ago. Simply add capacitor in line with third brake light. Don't remember the size. OR you can go buy it route. Here "how to video"...

Ours came with that system from the dealer. They had been sitting on this car for so long, they didn't even try to recoup the cost of the system from us.

We have used these systems on our motorcycles for years. And they are relatively cheap. That system is WAYYYYY overpriced at a dealer. LOL

Video was helpful, where does one find said capacitor?
Norm it was years ago and I bought it at radio shack. However, honestly I don't remember the size. Maybe some electrical guy on the site can help.
