Please Test Voltage + on the ORANGE wire at the Brake Switch, under Driver Dash
Test Voltage + on the WHITE wire at the Brake Switch, under Driver Dash with Pedal Down.

Don if the brake light in the back glass illuminates when the brake pedal is pushed doesn't that mean the switch is good?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago

so u r dis regarding the

'crash avoidance light controlled by the brake pedal?

Chevy Mechanic: Don - Mo Lurch, Auto Mech / Electronics replied 2 years ago

.

please wait for response, as it takes time to type & look at diagrams
in response to the back glass;

Yes, that was not mentioned.......
Then you need to test the Rear Harness connection into the Turn Signal Switch on the WHITE wire with Brake Pedal down

I am sorry for what appears to be Bad Service, but I can only answer to the Information you provide.
IF you are referring to the ORANGE wire at the Brake Switch

IF there is Voltage + on the ORANGE wire & there is NO Voltage + on the WHITE wire with Brake Pedal pushed, then REPLACE the Switch, as the Switch appears to be bad
ORANGE wire supplies Voltage + to the WHITE wire thru Switch when Pedal is pushed
