Question about 1997 Mitsubishi Galant
The brake lights keep coming on and off. I changed brake light switch twice and checked fuses and it is still doing it.
If you adjusted the switch you should have no continuity there.....Lights are not being lit from switch. Short?

If lights don't work, they either have no power, or no return earth. Therefore, remove a stoplamp globe and measure the voltage present in the globe socket. Next with a mutimeter, or battery powered light circuit, check that the globe sockets are in fact earthed to the frame.. If the earth is ok, and there is no power present, then you have a break in the wiring between the stoplamp switch and the rear of the vehicle.

Check the wiring going to the chassis holding the brake light bulbs. In the trunk when setting groceries and other items inside someone may have knocked a wire loose.
When you say none of the brake lights did you mean turn signals and parking lights as well on thefront and back?
