Three places to look. 1) Brake lamp fuse, 2) Turn signal switch and 3) the brake pedal switch. Brake light power comes from the fuse up to the turn signal switch down to the brake lite switch on the brake pedal and then on to the light bulbs. Start by putting the 4 way flasher on. If the brake lites flash, then the bulbs are good. That eliminated the fuse too. so the problem is the other two.
Just had a similar question last week, and the solution was a bad socket/bulb holder. You might try and see if there is current in the brake light wire leading to the bulb holder. I have used a jumper wire and a safety pin to test the wire behind the socket. I pierced the plastic insulation of the brake light wire with the point of the safety pin, and either use a tester or even a good working bulb and a good ground wire. Be blessed.
if these are the turn signal lights check the fuses, if they are good try the bulbs if the bulbs work in another socket then you need to replace the the multi-switch that is located on the steering column.
Hello there, The name of the part you are looking for is called a brake light switch, Fairly simple to change and relativly inexpensive. It is located behind the top of the brake pedal. Just a thought for you, I would suggest replacing the tail light bulbs first because you can have running lights and turn signals but the brake portion is burnt out.
The only thing left to investigate is the signal switch itself. The brake light system runs through the signal switch so it can effect both systems. Start with the simple, like, is a wire loose? Look at the base of the steering column. Check plugs and such. I believe you'll see it's in that part of the system.
