Expert:  David H replied 7 years ago.
I researched service info,the 2000 DHS uses light emitting diodes(LED)instead of regular bulbs for the stop lamps.the lamp assembly is serviced as an assembly.   sorry for the confusion.I have yet to have a problem with LED taillamp assemblies unless they are cracked.

light emitting diodes(LED)instead of regular bulbs, GEE. No the tail light are NOT cracked. The brake ligh does NOT work. I purchased bulbs that I now learn from you that do NOT apply. What do I need now?
Expert:  David H replied 7 years ago.
You need to be sure that the lamps are the problem.are all brake lamps not working,this includes the high mount stop lamp as well as right and left stop lamps.
