I guess that your refering to the backup lights? They have their own fuse and aren't imune to having the bulbs burnt out. The bulbs are easiest to check as they may be black in color or knocked out of their holders. The back up light switch is part of the neutral start switch and they will have other problems like no start if it's bad. wiring and their plugs are also possible mainly if the car as been in an accident or other bending action.
replace the turn signal switch in the column.its also known as a multifunction switch. you have to remove the cover around the steering column to access the switch. The brake light wiring also goes to this switch.
Hi ...... the brake pedal circuit is 'live' even when the ignition is switched off. Its sounds like you have a 'short' between the brake circuits and the rest, my guess would be at the back of the car. Have you had any work done lately ? Or heavy object in the boot/trunk ? Check ither side of the boot/trunk (behind or near rear lights) for chaffed, broken or melted wires. Make up a simple bulb testing lamp, one 12v bulb with a wire on positive and one on negative and place these wires into/on the wires going to your rear lights (neg' to earth) ......... this will tell you if the circuit has power going to it and by going back along the route you'll pinpoint the damaged or problem area. First step is to make sure both rear light clusters have good earthing points.
Let us know how you get on.
If there is no brake lite switch on the arm of the brake pedal then look to see if there are two wires hanging down with a plug on them, as perhaps the previous owner removed the brake lite switch with the intentions of replacing it and just never got around to it.
