Sorry for delay. Had planned hospital work doneNo brake lights
Factoy switch broke apart. Replace re special order for moving pedals.Compared with 2500 an 1500 LT Sub. Five wire.Now power into switch on orange the did on other trucks.Applied power to orange and switch B+ out on white wire which powered othe two brakes.No brake power on tailer plug.Tested stop fuze in truck wall and under hood.Toggled Flasher light, but runs to yellow lights, not brake red lights.Where would we find lost power to switch and out to brake lights?Thanks

So if I understand correct. At the brake switch the orange wire has no power but the STOP LP fuse is good and powered?

When you remotely power the white wire at the switch the brake lights still do not work?

I will not be able to move forward on the diag until you can verify those tests since your not confident. Below is that diagram you asked for.

No.
Wrong!
NO power at.....
Fuse on side of dash
Fuse under hood
Wire to switch orangeWhen B+ is applied to orange wire at switch, it will switch power to white wire out put.Then that white power wire powers nothing, as in brake lights or trailer light plug.?????
Need power to:
1 fuse
2nd fuse
Switch orange input.To power out of switch to power brake lights and trailer plug.On track yet Sir?
Chevy Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 2 years ago

Thanks for confirming all that info. No power to the STOP LAMP fuse under the hood, that means the fuse box has failed and needs to be replaced.

Remotely powering the brake switch white wire and getting no brake lights, leave the white wire powered and see if the VEH STOP and VEH CHMSEL fuses under the dash are powered.
