Okay, we got upset with each other. As a result, I reread the entire post. This is what messed me up:

thanks for quick response but abs. This is 1985
its check engine
I thought we were dealing with the light in the car (parking brake light or a light to indicate a brake problem). After rereading the post, it is with the exterior brake lights. Is that correct? If so you said the brake light switch is getting and sending power, there has to be a break in the wiring or a ground problem. Since the flashers work from the same circuit, chances are the ground is okay. However, they can be touchy. Let me know if this is the case. If so, I'll try to find a schematic to help you trace the wiring. As you most likely know, if the power is coming out of the switch, there has to be an open circuit between the lights and the switch.
Honestly, I have answered nearly 40K questions. Actually, electrical problems are one of my strong points. Listen, I'm not an !@#$. Now that I better understand the problem, I feel I could help.
Let me know.
Listen, I do this to help people. I give up my time to do so. I would like to help you get the problem taken care of. I just need to be clear on the problem. I was wrong with what I was saying because I was thinking it was a different problem. If you want me to help, let me know if I am correct with the problem being the brake lights (exterior) and then let me see what I can find. Actually, I'll start looking now for a schematic to see if there are any places that look like they could be a problem area.
By the way, some of the mid 80 GM vehicles did have a very basic ABS (rear only). That is why I said check the computer for codes. If it isn't flashing, that is a good thing. But as you mentioned, if it doesn't have ABS, that does nothing for us.
Get back to me so I can send the schematics (if I can find them) I will look now.
