This problem is caused by the turn signal switch being being defective, the brake light circuit for the lower lights runs through this switch, it is a common problem on may GM cars in these years.

Dodge ram 1500 wiring diagram

Three places to look. 1) Brake lamp fuse, 2) Turn signal switch and 3) the brake pedal switch. Brake light power comes from the fuse up to the turn signal switch down to the brake lite switch on the brake pedal and then on to the light bulbs. Start by putting the 4 way flasher on. If the brake lites flash, then the bulbs are good. That eliminated the fuse too. so the problem is the other two.

My brake lights went out, i changed bulbs, checked fuses , nothing seems wrong but still no brakes

try taking a look at the brake lite switch located down by the brake lite switch. Test it with a multimeter or test lite.

Stop lites out but stop lite in back window works. Blinkers and hazard work. The fuse box contents do not match the fuse box diagram. Only think I noticed is that the ABS light does not come on at all...

An easy way to test the switch is to jumper the wires together. If the brake lights come on you know the switch is bad. If not, then you have to look elsewhere in the system to solve the problem.

Brake lights will not work.

check all your fuses if fuses are good check brake lite bulbs see if they are blown. if bulbs are good get a test lite see if you have power to the bulb sockets have friend apply brake pedal you test power going into bulb socket if you have no power brake lite switch behind brake pedal could be burnt out. p.s dont forget to check all fese relays when checking your fuses.

Ford E-150 brake lights

I don't know the model year, to look up wiring diagram? Do you have a high mount brake lite? Does it work? The highmount and lower brake lites are routed differently, the lower brake lites are usually routed through the multifunction switch, the highmount brake lite isn't wired that way. Did you check voltage at brake switch for brake lites, that is a fused circuit.
Usually the lower brake lites and turn use the same bulb filament, but, not at the same time.
