Rear brake lights inop...3rd brake light works fine...
I have checked fuses under hood and on left side of dash...all seem fine. Is there a rear fuse block on this vehicle? Some research I have done says to check fuse #34 VEH STOP in the rear fuse block. I cannot find a rear fuse block. Is there such a thing? I have also changed the stop light switch and confirmed there is power at the white wires when depressing the brake pedal....my cruise is inop also, I see from the wiring diagram the white wire from the brake pedal switch runs through the multi-function switch...any relation?
Switch module in steering column will need to be replaced or the brake switch itself at the pedal. There was actually a recall for the pedal switch that came out in early 02 Usually the switch in the column about $125.00 at the aftermarket parts stores

Fuse boxes located under dash.under hood.in a small plastic cover on left side kick panel on drivers side.should be marked lights or tail-lts. Is all lights on rear of vehicles out or just one side or part of one side as any lights work fuse is still good.brake lights also if they work fuse good.access bulbs from trunk remove 6 screws pull cover.remove wire plug push light socket in turn back counterclockwise.
The fuse block that contains the brake light relay is under the left side of the rear seat.There is also
a fuse block under the right side of the rear seat. Another behind the dash under the steering column. And one more under the hood right front corner of the engine compartment. If the relay is
good, check the brake light switch for constant 12v in and 12v out when peddle is pushed.
The brake light switch is under the dash at the top of the brake peddle. Hope this helps.
Some of these had two fuses for brake lights. One for the top/center stop lamp and another for the rear left and right brake lights. Usually one said "stop" and the other said "brake" and one was in the underhood panel while the other was in the dash fuse panel. It's not uncommon to blow a brake light fuse [LR and RR] if you tow a trailer but some of these had seperate fuses for the trailer lights also. If you have a test light check both sides of the two fuses for power [ignition key on] while stepping on the brakes. It should at lest narrow your search a bit.
The body mounted brake lights, are on a different fuse than the upper light. Check fuse #12 a 25amp fuse in the fuse block under the hood on
the left fender. The upper light fuse #16 a 10amp fuse in the rear fuse
block, under the left side of the back seat. Hope this helps.
There is brake switch that is located on the brake oedal bracket, just to the right of the steering column mount. Youl need to remove the left side under dash panel to get to the switch and connector.
If the brake lights are inoperative, check the fuse.
If fuse is Ok, check the voltage at the light bulb socket when switch is not presed and when is presed. If there is no voltage back to the light bulb replace brake switch.
Check the Inside Fuse Box with a Flashlight for Blown Fuses. Then Check the Fuse Relay Box Under the Hood. Check the Fuses in that one to, If the Fuses are all good, Locate the Illumination, and Brake. Replace these Relays. That should get them back on, Let me know!
