Does your vehicle have cruise control? Is it 4 door or 2 door model? If 4 door than brake lamp switch should only have 2 wires, white/tan and red/black.

My wiring diagram is not matching up to what you're describing. Are these wires solid colored or do they have a stripe on them? Is this a Stratus R/T?

Schematic is showing only 2 wires. A green/black wire going to fuse box and a green/orange wire that splits into 3 sections, 1 for cruise control, 1 for ABS and 1 for the brake lights.

Checked it again and I see 4 wires that were cut I will try to get a picture of them tonight. One is green with orange stripe no breaking off in sections on this, one is yellow one is light green and the other is green with no stripe. I bought this car used and it came as is. I just want my brake lights to work, I really don't use cruise control. The light always stays on this so I removed the fuse
