Look for broken wires or with a test light. follow the wires checking from the fuse box back to the brake lights checking every so often in between the light wires and the fuse box.

My 1995 nissan xe 4 cylinder 5 speed truck is not getting any power to the brake lights. I have checked the fusses, I have checked everything and replaced the bulbs. Still no lights.

I am pretty certain I can help you with this!
The part of the truck that "energizes" the brake lights in under the dashboard and is connected to the metal framing by the brake pedal.
The brake light switch has at least 2 wires attached to it, and when you press the brake pedal, the switch has a pushbutton that is supposed to release and activate the lights.
If you will take a strong light down to that area, roughly in front of your knees whilst driving, you should find this plastic switch is bad, broken, or out of adjustment.
There is also a white plastic button that goes into a hole in the brake pedal that could be missing.
God bless your efforts.

Brake Lights Dull or Flickering - All Cars

Dull or Dim Brake Light Repair: If your car has a dull or dim brake light it is dangerous to you and other drivers. A dim brake light is a mystery to most people because the bulb is working, just not correctly. First confirm a new and correct brake light bulb has been installed. Next, turn the ignition key to the "on" position and have a helper depress the brake pedal. With the bulb installed touch a grounded test light to the outer bulb holder ring. If the bulb brightness changes the bulb socket ground has high resistance and needs to be repaired or replaced.

Flickering Brake Light Bulb Repair: A flickering brake light bulb can be very distracting and annoying. A brake light flickers because the power or ground is being obstructed momentarily. The most common cause for this condition is a loose fitting bulb socket. To check for this condition remove the brake light bulb in question, while a helper hold their foot on the brake pedal move the bulb around slightly in the socket. If the bulb flickers replace or repair the bulb socket as needed to regain proper brake light bulb operation. If the brake light bulb socket tests ok wiggle the brake light fuse and wiring at the brake light bulb socket, brake light switch and turn signal switch (American cars). If the brake light bulb flickers repair the component or wiring as needed.
Preferred Procedure: Always replace brake light bulbs with manufacturers recommend replacement bulbs. If you cannot find the correct replacement bulb part number consult an auto parts store for additional manufacturer information.
Common Problems
When brake light bulbs are replaced with the incorrect bulb causing no or dim brake light operation
If the brake lights stay on continuously it could mean the brake light switch has failed or an adjustment is needed.

The brake lights on my 2006 trailblazer are not working, all others lights blinkers etc are working, checked and replaced bulbs and fusses

Thanks for choosing FixYa Rick and welcome. You probably have a bad brake switch. It is located right above the brake pedal in the cab. The pedal hits the switch and activates the brake lights. It is a round looking chrome cylinder usually. Change it and the brakes should work. It cost 10$-30$.

Horn dose not work and tranmission locks in park, I belive the fuss is blown,

I may can help with the transmision part. Will your cruise work? If not,this is your fix.
Sitting in the driver seat, to the left of the gear shift is a small tab that says shift lock overide. Pop this tab off and push a small screw driver down until it releases the lock while trying to shift into gear . To fix the problem replace the brake light/cruise control switch. (can be found at most auto zone stores $40-60). It is a pin switch located just above the brake pedal. Mash the brake an you will be able to see it operate. Easy to replace.
