Do you know what you're asking for? The wiring diagrams consist of
well over a dozen 11x17 pages.
I'd suggest eBay, but the listings I see are mostly for CDs and
do not look trustworthy.
www.helminc.com has new OEM manuals. These are the finest there is.
Howdy. I didn't know there was SO many!!!. My prob had to do with
my tail lights not working when the emergency brake was DOWN aka off.
Stop & tun signals OK but needless to say, not too good at night with
no lights in rear. I tracked it down to the small switch on the
emergency brake. When brake ON, the tail lights stayed on but they I
put the brake down, tail lights went OFF..
Seems the switch on brake was kaput so disconnected so I ran wire
from switch to ground and now the lites stay on with emerg brake off.
Only prob is now he Emergency light on dash stays light even when the
brake is off. That is OK with me until I find a good switch.

This is odd. The parking brake circuit is /totally/ separate from the
taillight circuit. They don't even use the same fuse.
That switch should be OFF when the handle is down. You've wired it ON,
which is not the correct answer here.
The fact that jumping the PB switch lets your taillights illuminate
suggests you have a ground or power problem, not a parking brake switch
problem. The parking brake jumper wire is now providing ground or power for
Did your license plate lights work before you jumped the parking brake
switch? If not, you definitely have a ground or power problem.
You don't say if you have a hatch or a sedan. Has the car been in rear-
ended at some point? In the hatch there's a ground connection behnd the
trim panel inside, between the taillights. Body shops sometimes forget to
reconnect this ground. The same ground in the sedan is under the parcel
shelf. Sometimes people disconnect it while installing speakers and forget
to do it back up again.
Have you checked ALL the fuses? Checked to make sure there's power to the
hot leg of the 15A taillight/license plate light fuse? That fuse is kind of
in the middle of the bunch of skinny fuses in the under-dash fuse box.
