I can press the brake pedal and the brake lights go on. When I turn the headlights on the taillights and brake lights will not work. I have replaced the brakelight switch and that didn't work. Anyone have any suggetstions

I'd use a testlite on the bulb socket. At the rear socket, probably two terminals in the socket, one is for turn/brake not at the same time, the other is tailites. Use metal part of vehicle for testlite ground. Have helper turn on headlamp switch and step on brake, if both terminals in the socket are hot, I suspect a problem with the socket ground terminal.
