Hi, welcome to JustAnswer!. This is Ed.

I'll need to know the make, model and year of your vehicle to give you a fuse location.

If you're not sure of any of these, just shoot me the last 8 digits of the VIN and I'll be able to decode it from here.

Thanks and talk shortly,

Thanks. Be right back.

That would be Fuse 3 in the underhood TIPM fuse and relay center. It's a 10-amp unit.

It feeds the brake switch directly, with output being split between a straight feed to the Center High-Mounted Brake Lamp/ CHMSL (or 3rd brake lamp) and the other leg going into the TIPM to signal the TIPM to switch brake lamp output to both sides.

Not the fuse can you send me the part number for the break switvh?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Fuse is fine,
Expert:  Dodgerench replied 7 months ago.

That looks to be a 05083344AA switch. I don't have a part price, but expect it to be under $30.

Replaced the break switch still no break lights ( the deck break light is workin) no power to the bulb sockets on the sides though.
Expert:  Dodgerench replied 7 months ago.

Sorry, but this has escalated to a diagnostic situation. Scan tool information is required for inputs to the TIPM for brake lights, side to side. I'll opt out to open the case to other experts.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

Was the switch adjustment lever rotated after the switch was installed?
