Can you tell me if the rear brake lights are working when you step on the brake pedal?

 

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
No they stopped working too

ok- You are going to need to replace the Brake Light Switch. THis switch controls both the brake lights, and the Shift Interlock (which allows you to shift from Park when the brake pedal is depressed). This switch is located at the top of the brake pedal arm.
