Stop lights are not working, But high stop light works fine
My friend has a 1997 Chevrolet Silverado. He has had it shipped to New Zealand. Have had a trailer base wired in for trailer lights. The fault I have now is , I have no stop lights operating at the rear of the vehicle, but the high stop light still works. I am after a wiring diagram for steering column which shows wiring terminations for all the lights.
Re: Stop lights are not working, But high stop light...
You can pick up a 97 Chev Silverado Haynes mechanics manual. It has all the electrical diagrams towards the back of the book. Canadian Tire has them you may be able to get one off of ebay maybe Amazon.

Instead of improvising, why not get the stop lamps working the way they should be. You must be getting power through 15A fuse 23 in the fuse block and the stop lamp switch, otherwise the high mounted stop lamps would not work. Stop lamp power is routed through the turn signal switch and is applied to the tail/turn/stop-lamps. That should solve your problem
Assuming it's a K1500, 15A STOP/HAZ fuse 1 in the instrument panel fuse block is the source of power. If the stop lamp switch checks OK, and the center high mount stop lamp is OK, the cruise control system gets input at this point and may be defective. Fuse 1 also feeds power through the turn/hazard switch to the stop filaments of the tail/stop/turn lamps and these presumably are OK
use a testlight turn on the LS light ground the test light touch the pin inside the lamp socket if it lights look for a bad ground if it does not check your fuses or, run a new power wire under your truck secured with zip ties from the switch
I am having the same problem on an 04 2500hd there isa 15 amp stop light fuse inside the cab on the side of the instrument panel and a 25 amp stop light fuse under hood. you could also have a break switch issue the switch is located up on the break pedal linkage you should have power on the white wire when you push the pedal in (check with a test light) in my case I have a broken wire along the frame rail in the harness it is a light blue wire,
ljones, Did you check the "VEH stop" fuse in the left side instrument panel fuse box. There are 3 stop light fuses, 1 for all the stop lights located in the under hood fuse box. 2 in the left side IP fuse box. 1 for the upper stop light and 1 for the lower stop lights. The fuse box in the IP is where the upper and lower stop lights split. Let me know.
