Over the last 2 days, I have been plagued by troubleshooting this car's brake light problem. The stoplight fuse keeps blowing when the brake pedal is pressed. I have disconnected the lights altogether via their inline connectors in the trunk (both stop lights have burnt out in the last 2 days as well. And have been replaced), and pressing the brake pedal still blows the fuse. When I disconnected the connector from the stoplight switch on the brake pedal, the fuse did not blow (of course). Suspecting a possible internal short on the stoplight switch, I replaced it, and pressed the brake pedal BEFORE I reconnected the brake lights. Again, the fuse blew. With the brake lights disconnected, I am at a loss as to what would cause the fuses to keep blowing. Uinless the neutral safety switch is to blame. This same fuse disables the transmission release button on the shifter, keeping the car from coming out of park. Any suggestions at this point would be greatly, greatly appreciated!
have the same problem?
