It appears that a wire was "cut" coming from the stop light switch that goes to the stop lights. How this happens I have no idea. I suspect that when I took the car to get an electronic trailer brake assist installed about 2 months ago has something to do with it. I can't comprehend how a wire would cut itself when neatly harnessed with other wires.
Before taking it to the auto shop I did notice a white wire that had been cut. I assumed that it had been joined with the electronic brake assist box. Now magically that same wire is no longer cut.
Chances are I had been driving around since the electronic brake assist was installed without brake lights.
