None of the 3 brake lights work. The bulbs are fine and all the fuses are good. Does anyone know what the next thing to check would be? Trying to get this taken care without going to the repair shop.

Hi
With all three out the brake switch up on top of pedal is the culprit. Check it maybe out of adjustment when pedal is depressed switch closes and turns on brake lights.
Thanks for donate

How would we be able to tell if the switch is just bad and needs to be replaced? How would we go about making an adjustment to the switch? We think that we have located where the switch is, but can't see how to adjust it or tell if it needs to be replaced. Thank you!
