My center brake light quit, and I discovered that there was no continuity between the connector on the inside left side of the trunk (behind a lining) and the connector adjacent to the bulb socket, so I bridged it with heavier-gauge wire (12ga). The light works again, but I find that the alarm sometimes goes off when I open or close (no matter how gently) the trunk.
Any ideas what is happening here? Could using a different gauge wire
(the original was probably 16ga or maybe 18ga) upset the system's
equilibrium? What is it that the alarm system is sensing?
