Hello, my name is***** the turn signal and parking light on left rear work? Thanks.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
the turn signal and parking light work. Brake light does not work. Can you help me with this?
Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

Yes, this most likely means the multi function switch "turn signal switch" has failed as brake light circuit goes through this switch. Do you have a multi meter to do some testing? Thanks.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have meter. Where is the multi function signal switch located?
Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

The multi function switch is the turn signal/wiper switch. It is called a multi function switch because it serves multiple functions. I would just replace, there is no reason to test as there is nothing else it could be since turn signals work that proves wiring/connections are good. Let me know if you have more questions or if there is anything else I can do to help. Thanks.
