I have a 1992 RS camaro 25th anniversary edition, I have had several problems with it but corrected most. Now the problem I am having is my brake lights do not work and the brake light on the Dash is always on. I replaced the bulbs and checked the fuses disconnected the E brake(They didn't work anyways) what else can I do the 3rd brake light isn't working either. All other lights work I am stuck and need help bad!

The one with the vacuum hose is for the cruise control. The vacuum dropout is a backup in case the electrical switch doesn't kick the cruise off when you tap the brake pedal.

Fastest way is to measure the voltage on the two wires. As I recall, there is an orange feed wire that should have voltage all the time and a white wire that should have voltage when the brake pedal is pressed.
