That leaves the microswitch or the wiring.Verify microswitch is working first and the check wiring continuity. The microswitch closes as you press the pedal and transfer power to brake lights.
If the microswitch is O.k then it will be the wiring that is at fault.

hope it helps.

Brake lights not working

A few things to check:

1. I had a car burn out both brake lights at the same time. Be sure both bulbs are good.

2. Did you verify the fuse didn't blow again? If it's blown you'll need to track down the short.

3. The next ting to check is the switch that activates the lights when the brake pedal is pushed.

Brake lights don't work, turn signals do. is there a fuse in the fuse box for them?

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. There is a fuse for them in the box. May be named tail lamp or back lamp. If the fuse and bulbs are good, it is probably your brake switch. It is located right above the brake pedal. It controls the brake lights coming on. It will need changed if the fuse and bulbs are good. Thanks for using FixYa.

2001 Porsche Boxter 2.7L. No brake lights at all, brake light switch is ok and has power going to it, but no power to the rear lights

Faulty Brake light switch ubder the brake pedal would have been my firs as well but if you haco rear lights at all it could be either a fuse or a faulty head light switch whisch controls that.

No brake lights 2003 Boxster

check under and around your entire brake pedal assembly in the car. there may be a contact switch or something like it being blocked by dirt or object.

Turn signals work but the brake lights do not how do i get them to work? i already changed the flasher.

I have a 2001 Ford F150, my brake lights dont work. Ive replaced the bulbs, checked the fuses,and the brake switch on side of the brake pedal was replaced. I still dont have any brake lights. My third brake light works fine, along with my running lights,flashers, blinkers.

2002 boxster roof is stuck down

Jun 20, 2009- Hi, try the below, it worked for me. Just cut and pasted mine. Hope it works for you.

All sorted, thanks. I did check the fuse and it was OK. Thankfully I found another problem the same on here which suggested it might be the microswitch under the handbrake lever which de- activates the hood. Prior dismantalling the centre console I thought, maybe if it's stuck a bit of wiggling of the hand brake might just do it. I released the handbrake and pressed it down with a bit more than usual force several times repeatedly into the off position. Lo and behold, I pressed the button again and it worked!!! Hooray for the internet!!! Thanks so much, had the pound signs flashing before my eyes for a moment!!!

Rear Running Lights Out

Check the 10 amp "Tail" fuse. This controls the running lamps.
Note that the rear bulbs are "dual filament" bulbs, and even though the brake lamp feature works, the running light feature in the same bulb can be bad.

2001 dodge ram 1500 brake lights

I would guess the brake fuse ( this does not use the same fuse as the tail lights/blinkers) or the ground for the brake light bulb.
