Might be a simple explination but my mates got a NM Pajero and the tail lights on the rear guards dont work.The rear bumper has blinker/tail-brake lights and up on the guards there is Blinker/reverse/tail-brake? lights but when you remove the lights the globe is only a single element globe.Marked on the body of the tail light ass. is 12v25/5w(from memory) which would make sense.There is only one wire going(power) in and the globe holder wont accept duell element globes(pin positions). Whats the go all you Pajero owners? Thanks All

Those lights are blanks because the spare wheel means they aren't visible in accordance with the ADRs. So they make the bumper lights the main lights and avoid the issue of non complying tail and brake lights.

ADR's is the excuse MMA will give you. But that only means that they need to put lights in the bumper to be ADR compliant. There is no reason to reduce the functionality of the lights in the guards.

Prado 90 series and Jackaroos have those lights connected and operating as well as those in the bumper.

Yes but the Paj has the three lights. the Two side lights and one at the top. The right hand middle light array does have a globe and is the fog light. Whilr thr main lights are turned on you press the fog light button on the right hand lower part of the dash and there you go. A real bright annoy the driver behind 4th light. It goes off when the lights are turn off or the engine.

I have a reasonably modified and equipped 2001 NM Pajero Exceed and have been reading with interest the items on the Pajero tailights. To me the ADR requirements are absolutely insane ... sure there's a high-mount stoplight ... so what? Mounting important and essential lights low down in the rear bumper is decidedly dangerous -- especially at night and in wet weather. Surely someone has come up with a kit or means of utilising the mid height "pretend" lamp clusters. If any one knows od an auto electrician in Sydney who can do, and has done, this conversion could you please advise details. Will be eternally grateful to find a way of making the Paj safer.

Thanks
