Question about 1998 Chevrolet K1500
Hello, i have a 1998 silverado 1500 and my brake lights aren't working, turn signals, parking lights, and hazards lights all work fine. I have replaced all fuses in the dash and i have test the relay switch under the hood and changed the brake light switch on the pedal. issue started when fuses blew b/c there was live wires on the wiring harness that was for trailer lights. i have removed the trailer light harness and the fuses no longer blow but still no brake lights. have used a test light and there is no power to the wire that goes to the brakes. bulbs are good and the board that the lights plug into is good b/c i have connected it to another truck and tested.
my assumption from this is that there is a wire thats loose somewhere or frayed.....any suggestions
The first thing is to check for power at the brake light switch,there should be power to one wire the other wire power up when pedal is pushed, this will tell you if it a power loss if theres no power to switch, if theres power to switch and through switch with pedal pushed then loog at the connect for signal switch its near column big connector as brake light power goes through switch you may have fryed that wire have some watch lights as you wiggle but this is only if you have power at brake switch. if theres no power then double check fuses even in the engine compartment, mostlikly it a fuse the wiring should not of burnt with a fuse in line, theres fuses in engine fuse box that also control lights.
