Have you Checked the Harness under the Rear of the Bed for the Tow Package? These Truck usually have the Plug Harness installed from Factory and can sometimes come Undone.

    Should be a Relay in the Under Hood Fuse Box for the Lights, Brakes, ETC. I would check there first. Let me Know what you Find!

    Ok The next step is to get a Voltmeter From any auto Parts Stor and Start Searching through Wires Starting from the Brake Lights Back to the Fuse Box. I know it is Time Consuming and Frustrating But, That is all that I can Think of from this Point. Just helped a Lady this Morning and it Worked. Keep me Updated!

1988 chevy 1500 everythingworks exept brake light turn signal ok tailghts ok no brake lights

Since the turns work in the back, that means the brake bulbs are good. Brake lights and turn signal lights share the same filament in the bulb.
There is a fuse for the brake lights. Then, there is a brake light switch on the brake pedal. You need a voltmeter or test light, after checking that fuse is good. Need to check if fuse has power on it. This is one of those fuses that are hot at all times-as long as battery is connected, voltage should be going through the fuse and up to the brake light switch. Check for power both places. The switch on the pedal is a simple on-off switch. When brake is depressed, the spring loaded switch is turned on-passing power on towards the brake lights.
But then the brake wire goes into the turn signal switch before going on to the brake bulbs...however, since your turns work good, I doubt if there is a problem in the turn switch. First check if the brake light switch is sending power on when switch is on.
Let me know what you find. Good luck.

Can't get 1998 Chevy Pickup 1500 out of part also has no back up lights. Have already replaced brake switch and Park Neutral Safety switch but still have problem. Any advice?

Have you checked to see if the fuse is blown? The brake lights have to work to get the truk out of park as thepower from the switch opens the gate in the steering colum to let the shifter into gear.the brake light fuse is in the underdash fuse panel. while checking fuses check them all as some circuits effect others so any blown fuse can cause this problem eventhe fuse panel under the hood. The tailight circuit boards are well known to fail and cause blown fuses so unplug the tailights at the light change the fuse and try to ge it out of park If it works plug one at a time the tailights in and you'll find your problem the circuit boards are a common problem so they can be aquired at most parts stores.

Fuse good told that brake electric wire bad. what

There is a "Switch" that is pressed by your Breaking foot lever of most vehicles. Grab a flashlight and look for it, Turn the key on and see if you get any voltage to this switch. If you do get voltage to this switch, have someone watch the break lights while you jump the 2 wires. If you have power to it and jump it but still no lights, You must replace the faulty wiring.
