There seems to be a break in the electrical circuit which is not getting contact, which only happens after u pull the ebrake one notch, however if it is not causing any operational problems then continue to do so till more probs arise.....................sodeep

    Pulling the handbrake one notch is not going engage any pressure on the brakes, but if it lights up all gauges, then no harm in letting it one notch high.......sodeep

Replaced the bulbs and checked fuse but the brakelights fail to work. Could it be a switch.

Yes, it could be the switch behind your brake pedal.

  1. Remove the driver's side instrument panel trim panel/sound insulator.
  2. Detach the switch electrical connector.
  3. Remove the switch from the retainer by grasping it, turning the switch 90° counterclockwise, and pulling it toward the rear of the car.

The brake light switch (3) is mounted on the brake pedal support (1) and secured with a retainer (2)

To install:
  1. Insert the brake light switch into the retainer until the switch body seats on the retainer.
  2. Pull the brake pedal upward against the internal pedal stop.
  3. Turn the switch 90° clockwise in order to lock it into position.

NOTE Proper switch adjustment is achieved when no clicks are heard as the pedal is pulled upward and when the brake lights do not stay on without brake application.

  1. Attach the switch electrical connector and test the switch for proper adjustment.
  2. Adjust the brake light switch, as follows:
    1. Detach the switch electrical connector.
    2. Remove the switch from the retainer by turning it counterclockwise 45°, and pulling it toward the rear of the car.
    3. Insert the switch into the retainer until the switch bottoms out against the brake pedal and the switch actuator button is fully depressed.
    4. Snap the switch into the retainer by turning it clockwise 45° until a click is heard.
  3. Attach the switch electrical connector.
  4. Install the hush panel/sound insulator.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.

The installations of alarms I have seen over the years were with few exception very very poorly done, and always the cause of the electrical issues like yours and 100's of other problems, the alarm installer always denied there alarm was at fault, but when I restored the factory wiring the problems went away, HUM!, I will bet if you restore the wiring that everything will work again as designed.
