07 Cadillac CTS 2.8, both Corner brake lights not working…

Customer Question
07 Cadillac CTS 2.8...

07 Cadillac CTS 2.8, both Corner brake lights not working but third brake light on trunk does operate correctly. Fuses not blown bulbs have been replaced and still only have one of three brake lights working..

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the brake fluid? How's the level and when was it last changed?

Car has 38000 miles and brake fluid level is fine

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your CTS yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have checked the fuse, I have replaced the bulbs, and I'm spent hours online researching, still no answers

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Sure! When I make right-hand turns into parking stalls the brakes fail!!!

No it has not been resolved yet, have been waiting for a correct answer from your team... I have been on many forums on both these issues and seems to be a reoccurring problem for many CTS owners

hey how are you

we have a brake light switch under the brake pedal, check connection or replace that is the most likely problem

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
is there multiple brake switches? Because as I stated there is one light functioning. If the switch was bad, I wouldn't have any lights at all.

not just one, but part of it internal could be bad

As I had stated, I needed a technical answer. I have already done all the basics myself. My second question was never even attempted to be answered. This site has been a waste of my time and money.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Both problems still exist and nothing has been suggested that I hadn't already checked myself.
