Brake light bulbs replaced and no light when brake applied

check the brakelight switch at the bottom of the brake peddle it could be out of adjustment, with the brake peddle released the switch should just push in a little bit and with the peddle pushed a little the switch should be away from the peddle to turn the brake lights on, hope this helps you.

2001 Chevy lumina all lights work except the beak lights even after replacing peddle switch

To the best of my knowledge, here is how that works.
There is a "hot" wire that goes from the fuse box to the switch at the brake pedal. There is another wire that is activated when the push button is released by the brake pedal and the electricity then goes back to the brake lights.
Find a person familiar with a test meter, and see if there is current to the brake light switch. If there is, then see if the current is there (when the pedal is pushed) at the other wire. If so, go and remove a brake light bulb and see if current is coming to the rear of the car.
Be blessed.

I need a wiring diagram for a 98 chevy suburban. My brake lights don't work. Checked fuse bulbs and brack light switch.

above the steering column there is a 6 way plug, it is an actual jumper harness to the brake switch it is held in place by a rosebud, pop the rosebud out and check the plug for being fully seated, I have seen many of these that have been partially pulled apart and it actually breaks the circuit/and can short it out, other than that if thats o.k. then your turn signal switch in column is defective.
