If you have power to the bulb, try grounding the other wire. How did you check the bulbs?
I do not have power to the bulb just the switch. I tested the bulb socket to the frame to check ground, the socket is grounded. I tested the bulb for continuity on the 2 filaments. And its fine
High mount and rear stop lights are on the same circuit so if the high mount is working, problem should be at rear. Test the bulb socket Orange wire for battery voltage when brake switch is turned on.
Will need help. Will try it when I get some, I cant see all the sockets going bad at the same time that would 4 of them.
You can unplug the brake switch wire and use a jumper across or use something to hold the brake pedal to activate the switch.
Can someone please tell me how to replace my brake light switch. I have a 94 Mitsubishi Galant GS. My brake lights stay on even after the car is turned off.
