Not sure what model you have but, looking at the brake pedal to see if the brake light switch is plugged in and the wires not broken is a place to start. Depending if your model has yellow turn lights in the rear is the next place to check. The car or truck is old enough for the bulbs to be burnt out and of course if you were hit of hit something with the brake lights on they tend to fail too. If thiers no yellow lights in the back you can turn on the hazard lights to test the bulbs and connections but if thier yellow your only testing the turn signal lights and you did'nt report that as an issue. The fuse can be blown but if it is theirs likly to be another problem that still nereds to be found. If the car or truck has a trailor connection this has always been a good place to look for troble. If the fuse is blown it's a good idea to watch how the new one blows just to see where the problem needs to be looked for. If it blows just plugging it in the problem is before the brake light switch or the switch it'self. if only after pressing the brake pedal then it can be the wires a badly installed bulb or light socket problem. If it does'nt blow ttill after the brake pedal is pushed then I'd remove the taillights and get the bulbs out and remove them. With the bulbs removed I'd check to see it it's still shorted. if not install them one at a time not reusing any that appear bad replace trhem with new ones.

Turn on lights brake lights on, depress brake pedal no change rear lights, lights off press on brakes running lights vanity mirror and dash display light up while brake is depressed

After what it started to act like that? Something was done on the car recently? I'd say there is some mix up with the wires somewhere.

Tail lights work but right brake light doesn't

I had a similar issue with my lincoln, it turned out to be the wiring to the socket, was corroded and broken. Since you have done the other things this would be the next plausable place to look. hope this helps

I have a 2001 Isuzu Trooper & the brake lights are out. Tail lights & blinkers work, the fuses & bulbs seem to be ok..what can I look for now?

There is a switch that is located above the brake pedal. It is called a brake senden switch. Make sure that it hasn't just lost contact with the brake pedal, that can happen, if it is bad, then it is a cheap fix

Abs light on dash is lit brakes are good

Did some research and found that the module that connects to the ABS pump (next to battery) to be the problem. ISUZU wanted $3,200.00 to fix it. Bought one off of a wreck for $146.99 (LOL, yep, $146.99). Removed battery, disconnected the large cable going to the ABS, unclipped the 3 brake line clips on the top of the fender so the ABS pump could be removed and swapped the electronic modules- did not have to penetrate the brake lines at all. Took me 20 minutes. Restarted Trooper and ABS light went out.
