Did you check for a switch at your pedal that may be faulty? Power in at one side, and out the other when pedal depressed.

bulb sockets clean and not corroded

with all lights off (power off) i have used a plumbers wire brush for 1/2 " pipe to clean out down inside sockets as over time water will find it's way in there and cause problems

I recently replaced the front rotors, brake pads and master cylinder in my 2003 Durango. I've since discovered that the brake lights are not working, including the 3rd brake light in the tailgate. I...


Hello, Well there is not much more it could be unless you have a shorted wire or a burned fuse. I would normally think that the turn signal canceler was bad but the 3rd brake light will still work if that is bad so I would check all fuses and for bare or shorted wires.

Right brake light out changed bulb and fuse still wont work


Check the brake switch located above the brake pedal. It may be shorted or faulty. Check the wiring to make sure that it is not broken anywhere.

Brake lights do not work


If your fuses and bulbs are all good, then look above your brake pedal and you will see your brake switch up along your brake pedal arm. It will either be between the brake arm and the firewall so when you brake it pushes the switch in. Or it will be between the dash and the brake arm so when you brake it pulls the switch out. Most likely this switch needs to be replaced

Rear lights wont go on but brake lights work


Fuse box is a good place to start, and check under hood for power distribution box with more fuses.

Brake lights on my accord 2005 wont work with new bulbs


The brake lights are activated when you depress the brake pedal.  When depressed the brake light switch, which is located on the brake pedal level, allows the circuit to be complete.  Check for power on one side of switch then depress pedal and see if it allows power to other side of switch.  Keep me posted
