2 out the the three brake lights do no work, only the 3rd (center) light works. I have checked the bulbs and fuses and found no problem?
Can you help? Is it a wiring problem or what?
Thanks,
Pete Klumb

If the brake light switch is faulty (your answer) why does the center brake light work fine?

Because the high mount stop lamp runs on a separate circuit. It is ran through a relay, the main brake lamps run through the switch.
