I was recently pulled over for having no brake lights. While the officer was checking my license the brakes began working again.

I have checked and changed the bulbs in the brakes and they still do not work. My blinkers and brake above the trunk do however work. I do not have an owners manual to check the fuses. I was told that this may however not be the problem as the blinkers are still working.

Do you have and advise? If it is a fuse issue, where do I start to look as I do not have an owners manual to refer too?
Do you
have the same problem?

If the 3rd brake light working (middle brake light )
then its not the fuses you need to check wiring and combination switch

You need a TEST LIGHT AND OR A VOLTS METER
check wiring harness
and also step on the brakes and try to move the signal switch in every possible way
and if you get a brake light most likely the switch is no good
