I am trying to understand the wiring diagram for my Sprint. In the engine bay near the washer pump I have another wire, it's black and red. According to the wiring diagram it connects to a Sovv.
Can somebody please tell me what a SOVV. is?

Hi Carl,
It's actually SOVY, named, I think, for the manufacturer. It is a device attached to the brake master cylinder reservoir consisting of a float connected to a switch. When your brake fluid level drops, the switch turns on the "brake" warning light on your dash. The device itself looks like a can which screws onto the brake reservoir in place of the cap.
