F150 BRAKE LIGHTS

2000 Ford F-150

Electrical problem
2000 Ford F150 V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 209, 00 miles

The brake lights on my truck have quit working, it started as an intermittant problem, now they do not work at all. The fuses are good, the brake light switch has been changed. The cyclops light on the cab works fine and always has.
Inspection of the wiring harness from the engine compartment back to the brake lights has revealed no indication of a broken wire or a short.
I do most all my own repairs and such but this one has me scratching my head.

Is sounds like the problem is in the turn signal switch. The brake lights go through it, but the center brake light does not, check it out and let me know. Replace the switch if needed, its not to tough and the switch is not to bad, must get it from the dealer though.
