My stop lights don't work. I replaced stop light switches. Rear stops replaced.I checked power going to stop light switches. No power going to new switches. I don't know what to do next.

Check fuses 10-11-12 then check black red wire from ignition switch see ifyou are getting power there. If fuse is blown it may be short so see if you can find the broken wire.

Then the switch may be bad, a burnt up connection/shorted wire etc. The switch must be turned on of course so I don't know how you checked it.
