My brake lights are not working. 3rd brake light does work so does the cruise control. The running lights all work except for the right side top one. Checked all the fuses & they all work. Replaced the bulbs to no avail. I'm thinking brake switch but need some better advice if it could be anything else.
Do you

If the 3rd brake light is working, it's not the switch. Check the grounds.

Exactly what I did this weekend. Then I took a step back & realized I didn't check individually the lights, turns out the lights I bought before although same # didn't work & the other light that the running light worked only, the duel filiment was half dead. Felt pretty stupid, replaced all lights & everything works, lol.
Now to try & fix the main issue alot of ppl have I've read. Service 4wd! Switch works fine, TCCM gets no signal but far as I've read it could also be the transfer case shift control so guess I'll replace that before the TCCM, sucks not to be able to get a straight answer what's wrong, even dude at shop couldn't figure out which one, I can do them both myself so I'll at least save some $ that way.
Any info on that problem would be greatly appreciated of course!

Ok. No worries, been there, done that.

Do me a favor and open another thread for the trans/transfer case issue and describe the issue completely for us.

Opening a new thread for the second issue allows other users to find it by searching for that type of problem. In the meantime, I'll start doing some research on it on my end.
