Porsche 1990 944S2- brake light issues

I just bought a 1990 Porsche 944 s2, none of my brake lights work, i changed the brake switch, I cleaned the connectors of the ground wires located in the trunk(with sand paper and wd40) and checked the fuse under the hood - (which was good) bulbs look good from what I can tell - still no rear braking lights - what could the problem be ? Can anyone help ? - Thanks L,

SOURCE: roof

My roof just stopped working this morning. My owners manual says that on the left rear side, in the trunk, when you pull back the carpeting there is a place for a crank. You use the spark plug wrench that came with the tool kit, although it is not with my car.

SOURCE: 1991 Lexus ES250 Rear Brake Lights

first of all the brake lights are always in the rear only!!. take the light bulb out and while some one is appling the brake pedal check to see if yo have power at only one terminal of the socket, then release the brake pedal and make sure yu dont have power at the same terminal , now if you had poer in one of the terminal then you have to replace the socket for the brake light bulbs.

look under the dash board right at the brake pedal switc where the brake light switch is located and make sure that the wires are not broken, you can also do a quick check by just disconnecting the brake light seitch and then jump the terminal off of the brake switch and you should have light if the light works this way then you have to replace the brake light seitch

SOURCE: Porsche 1990 944S2 Airbag Reset

When you put in airbags, you need to put new airbag sensors as well. If you leave the old sensors in, your airbags MIGHT deploy again. When you change both airbags and both sensors, the system resets itself. I have done this operation before.

SOURCE: 2003 Toyota Camry - Both Brake lights not working

Lok in the trunk on the left side, behind the carpet for a small plastic box with a bunch of wires going to it. Look to see if there is brake light powe coming in with the pedal depressed. If so, and no power is coming out, you need to order and replace the "taillamp failure sensor".

Brake lights do not turn on

are you sure the brake lights come on when you turn on the headlights? usually the tailights come on. easily mistaken for brake lights.

if brakes are working fine except that the brake lights do not come on - then usually the problem is with the switch that should activate the brake lights when you depress the brake pedal.

quickest and easiest (and safest) solution - take it to an auto electrician.

Have you checked for good grounds? Sometimes water or wetness will help with conductivity. Grounds are all over the place and are usually corroded, braking the bond. Make sure that all grounds are clean and secure.
