well, i did the brake light mod as per the thread in the information forum. is the back-up light also supposed to go on with the other 5 bulbs when hitting the brakes?

No...you should only have the two upper lamps and the two lower (outer) lamps lit when braking.

I just did this mod a few weeks back and everything works fine. My stock fuses are also doing just fine.

Sounds like you might be making connection to more than one pin...did you make sure to use insulated connectors so they don't touch the other pins?

i didn't use the insulated connectors, but i did check to make sure that they weren't touching. i had to jumper the two connections on the passenger's side to get it to light up, like the instructions said.
