If both brake lights went out at the same time, I'd suggest checking to make sure you have a good ground. Also, check to see if the turn signals are operating. If not, it I'm almost sure it's the ground.

When I attach a float to my ute I have indicators only but no brake or tail lights

Check all fuses under the dashboard, usually on the drivers side for any that are burnt out. The location of which fuse does what, like works the tail lights and brake lights should be clearly marked/printed on the board that conntains the fuses. Replace them if necessary. If that doesn't solve the problem, then check the actual bulbs behind the lenses to see if the 12 volt bulbs have burned out, and replace them if necessary.

Brake lights don't work. Bulbs, fuses and brake light switch all okay. Center brake light works and the running lighs work.

Filaments on actual bulbs might be burned out, pull the socket out from the back of the tailights and do a visual check on the bulbs, replace if needed...

Hello, Well there is not much more it could be unless you have a shorted wire or a burned fuse. I would normally think that the turn signal canceler was bad but the 3rd brake light will still work if that is bad so I would check all fuses and for bare or shorted wires.

Rear Brake lights do not work. Brake light in rear window does.

pull your turn signal switch all the way back and hold it like your turning on the brights now hit your brake lights did they light up more than likely yes your problem is your turn signal switch.

My brake lights dont work or front lights. could that be a fuse or need to buy bulbs or worse.

with brake lights, there are many possibilities.
first check the fuses. look at your owner's manual for the location of the fuse box. also,
for the brake lights, there's usually a switch built into the back side of the brake pedal. these can become loose , get unplugged or even just wear out.of course, they could be burned out. by front lights, i assume you mean headlights. either way, once again check the fuses, also check the bulbs themselves. if none of this works and you are having this much trouble with the electrical system, you might want to take it to a tech.

No brake lights have turn signals and running lights

There is a switch on the brake pedal that makes the brake lights come on. You may check that to ensure it is working properly. You can also check the bulbs to make sure the high filament hasn't burned out in them.
