Question about 1999 Mazda 626
My brake lights dont work and i have checked the switch,fuses and bulbs and all are good.
I hope I am not too late. I am a certified mechanic and also have a 99 mazda 626 with the same issues. It was driving me nuts and I had no electrical schematic to help me see what was on the brake light circuit.
I found the solution. Do this if you have checked everything else.
1-Check all bulbs. Replace bad ones
2-Reach under the dashboard on top of the brake pedal assembly you will see the brake light switch. Grab the switch and turn it counterclockwise, it will come out. No need to remove the wire plug from it. If the switch is good at this point your brake lights should be on. If the switch tests good the your last resort is the turn signal switch called multy function switch. Replace it and your problems will be solved. I went to a local junk yard with a philips screwdriver and pulled one out of a vehicle. The cost was $5.37. Good luck let me know

Connect a length of wire from switch to bulb on the positive `s . if this works then there is a break in the loom
