Check to see if the brake light switch is working first by putting a jumper on the switch that is located just above the brake pedal arm.
This switch is pushed when you press the brake pedal, and turns on the brake lights just like turning on a light switch.
I may be out of adjustment too.
Otherwise, you may have all the brake light bulbs burned out.
I would try a new bulb in one brake light first.

My 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 cruise control will not turn on. I've checked the fuses in the fuse box on the side of the dash but they were all good. Another issue i have occasionally is the brake light


Probably neither.
The brake light switch could knock out the cruise.
You might check the computer for trouble codes, but you'll probably need a shop manual to get the test procedures for the cruise control.

Brake light relay?


If it were a grounding problem then they wouldn't work at all so that's out. Sounds like the brake sensor isn't installed correctly

2003 silverado 1500 v-6 brake lights dont work


ljones, Did you check the "VEH stop" fuse in the left side instrument panel fuse box. There are 3 stop light fuses, 1 for all the stop lights located in the under hood fuse box. 2 in the left side IP fuse box. 1 for the upper stop light and 1 for the lower stop lights. The fuse box in the IP is where the upper and lower stop lights split. Let me know.
