The driver's side brake light on my 2003 L200 is not working. I checked the bulb & fuse and they were both fine.
Next, I removed the driver's side brake switch and used a tester to confirm that the circuit is closing when I press in the plunger. That was working.
So I went to the wiring socket and checked power there using the tester. On the driver's side socket, the pink wire is only showing.03 volts.
Same test on the passenger side wiring socket gets 12 volts.
I got under the dash and followed the pink wire from the wiring harness all the way to the wall to the engine compartment and there were no breaks or tears in the wire.
So, is there a fusible link somewhere between the fuse and the brake light switch socket that I can check? I'm at my wits end with this one.
The only other option I can think of is to try and jump the hotwire from the passenger-side switch to the driver's side switch to get the brake light working.
