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.

THE TURN LIGHT RIGHT BACK NOT WORK


If one tail light works, it's not the fuse box. It's either a ground wire off on that side , or a wire chafed along the curcuit. Your fuse for parking lights is for all four. If you have three, it's definately not the fuse box. You did not say what type of vehicle you have or I could have told you the best places to look for a ground wire. And I'd like to know if signal, brake, and reverse lights on that same side work at all. Let me know what your car is and we'll go from there. Please rate this solution thanks

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

Brake light bulb Issue


A bad socket is a common enough problem that it is likely that, rather than a wiring problem. Just splice in a new socket, if you can, or whatever is easier and cheaper (like a tail light assembly from a salvage yard).
Of course if you have a voltmeter or testlight, you can check at the socket electrical connector for power when it should be there-when the brake is pressed.
