Installing a rear brake light kill switch means that you have the option to turn off your rear lights, which is surely not a safe idea, especially if you’re planning on driving around like that. However, it is possible to do and it’s highly recommended that you add a buzzer or some sort of signal as well so that you know when it’s on to avoid getting a fine or worse.
These diagrams use relays to connect your rear brake light kill switch:

I would like to install a brake light kill switch, and i dont know how to go about doing this the proper way. I want it so when i flip the switch it kills the brake light and then lights an indicator lamp, and buzzer so that way I know when I have it on. Also when we are on the topic, I am have seen people make a rear light kill switch so basically one switch kills the entire rear of the car, axillary lights, tag light, running lights etc.. but also being able to keep the headlights on. How difficult would it be to do these mods?
*yes yes i know, its a bad idea. i just think it would be one of those cool o’ look at this mods*

Best way is with relays, but I don’t have time to draw a diagram now.

I would have said use 1 relay and switch the ground wires for all the lamps at once. But that is just me.

Wouldn’t it be easier to kill it at the brake light switch output ???
