Question about 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser
We have checked fuses and bulbs and all are good. we bought new brake switch but car wouldn't go into gear, put old switch back in and got car in gear. whats our next option? all taillights, blinkers work. just no brake lights
The brake switch tells the shifter lock system that you have your foot on the brake so it can go into gear-so this must be working in the old switch-how many wires are connected to the brake switch-follow the wires up under the dash to see if anything has been cut or rubbed through- Denny

Check for faulty wires at the fuse block, had one fall off from the block itself from the rear, or it could be a wire break somewhere along the way.
Stop Lights and Blinkers are independant fuse.
Tail lights are on there own fuse and could be a wire break in the rear or removing the bulb and using a metre check for signal at bulb socket where trouble is, Check for disolored connections, Green in color or simular, could be a bad connection which in turn is not letting the curent to other side, Causing a short and loss of power to all remaining lights in curcuit.

SOURCE: tail lights out
If your front parking lights come on, you have a wiring issue, or body control module issue. If neither front or rear come on, I would suspect the switch.

Have you checked for power at the sockets? How about power out of the
turn signal switch? Is the third brake light also not working? If that
bulb is good and there is no power at the socket than you have a bad
break light switch. Check for power in and out of the switch with the
brake pedal depressed. You can also unplug the brake light switch and
jump it to confirm the lights work.
I can get you the wire colors if you need them.
