99 Beetle - brake lights and interior temp lights out



I have a 99 Beetle, and recently the two rear (but not the center) brake lights stopped working. I opened the fuse box and checked the fuses, they all look fine, but now, in addition to the brake lights the interior clock and temp display (near the rearview mirror) aren't lighting up when I turn on the headlamps.

Can someone tell me which fuse controls these two sets of lights? And if it isn't a burnt out fuse, its not likely both brake lights would burn out together, is it?

Thanks for any help in advance!

Brake lighs stop working


Does the 3rd brake lamp illuminate? If so then your problem is multifunction switch.If it doesn't do the following checks.
Check for power to and thru the brake lamp switch itself.If you do not have power to the switch check fuse no. 10(20 amp) in the interior fuse panel.If you have power to the switch then depress brake pedal and make sure you have power thru the switch.If this is ok the check Fuse 22(20amp) with brake applied..
