The brake lights do not work. I checked all fuses-both boxes, none are marked brakes-but all fuses are good. The bulbs are good, I replaced the switch by the brake pedal.

The tail light, turn signals and four ways all work.

I do not know what else it could be.

Thanks, Paul

Hello,

You must be losing power somewhere it is a straight shot from the switch to the bulbs. Here is a guide to show you how to test for power and the brake light wiring diagram below. See if you are getting power at the switch. Also test through the combination flasher.

Check out the diagrams (below). Let us know what happens and please upload pictures or videos of the problem.

Cheers

I had this problem as well. The brake light switch was bad. They must have gotten a defective one.
