My brake lights (as well as rear turn lights) stopped working 2 days ago. I checked the fuses (all okay) replaced the bulbs (all burned out) and the defective stoplight switch. The center brake light now functions correctly, however the tail lights still do not function (brakes or turn signals). Where should I look next?

Did you check for voltage, anywhere? Your lower brake lites are wired through the m ultifunction switch. The stop and turn use the same bulb filament at the rear, just not at the same time. At the right side rear, Dark green wire is voltage for stop/turn. Black wire is ground.

Check for voltage at tail fuse, head lamp switch turned on.
