wiring truck cap

I have a 05 F-350 that I added a truck cap to . It has the LED third brake light on the back and the dealer is having a hard time finding the right wire to tie it in. He keeps setting it up and it blinks with the left blinker. ANy idea where to find a brake light wire that wont blink.

thanks

Michael

If I remember there is a wire in the harness for the trailer that is labled for the third brakelight, or is labled like chmsl or something like that.

Mine is just spliced into the harness that plugs into the tail light.

Edit: it actually plugs into a plug that is spliced into the harness so you can just un-plug the wires if you want to take the cap off.

Under the dash, before it goes to the blinker switch. Possible to put it off the trailer brake controller wire that works it.
