Hello, my name is***** you blow a fuse for these lights the system shuts itself down. The fuse box under the hood is known as the totally integrated power module. When a fuse blows and it detects a short in the circuit the module shuts this circuit down. The only way to get it working again is to use the right scan tool to remove the fault from the computer so that it will work again. I hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more help.
This would not show up in the regular powertrain trouble codes. You need a scan tool like a DRB or another high end scan tool. Regular generic scan tools cannot read this system.
Exactly. Most good shops should have a scan tool that is capable of this. It should be at a fraction of what the dealer costs.
This happens because the brake lights are the highest amperage draw so it does this to protect the circuit.
Yes, it simply turns off the circuit even though it is fused with other circuits. The module should be fine.
