Question about 1979 Pontiac Firebird
Already changed brake light switch and my brake lights still dont turn on and all of my fuses are good also my dimmer light dosnt work and i already changed the soor jamb switches ?????
As Someone Has Stated The TRUNK Wiring Harness Is A BIG Probable Culprit Here<<<IF
You have Checked for Brake Light POWER @ the Switch Going IN & OUT and it is GOOD, The Harness for Body going to the Rear of Car This Includes Under the Back Seat as there IS Where the Harness Travels to Get to the Trunk.
As for Dimmer Light Im Not Sure as to What you are Refering to, HEADLIGHT DIMMER Or "DOME Light" Dimmer For Headlights this Will Be the Switch itself. And for DOME LIGHTS this is a Reostatic switch Incorperated with the HEADLIGHT Switch and the Fix for this is Simply REPLACE the HEADLIGHT SWITCH. I Truely Hope that I Have Helped you here or Added to the Help you have received from Others. Thank You and GOOD LUCK

If you feel up for the challange, you can trace the wiring and use a multi-meter to see if the voltage is reaching the sockets. Also do the same for the fuse box. You can also use a test light for this is you have one.
Also check all wiring in trunk. Make sure all connections are tight. Mabey have a short in dimmer switch. How is the cluster lights? You can also test the headlight switch to rule that out.
