    NC2 5ltr Fairlane brake lights

    Hello, I’m hoping someone can look at my voltage drop test readings on the brake light circuit? I am a bit worried by the readings on the positive wire. I have not done voltage drop tests before but YouTube helped & also did them on my headlights & tail lights to see what’s what. So I got the gist of what’s going on & it seems you should have under the battery voltage once all tests are done when added up & readings should be around 0.5v or less on a positive+ to positive+ or earth- to earth- wire. From what I have learned I have resistance I think in my positive wire but as I have never done this maybe it’s normal on the brake light circuit? I can only think something maybe feeding off that positive for power? I have attached the wiring diagram for EA - ED. Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks I ran 2 tests. Car off was done after other tests & is why voltage is a bit low. For the test when car was running, was done after a drive about 15mins later.
