Do you have voltage to the Orange wire at the brake light switch? If so, do you have voltage on the White wire with the pedal depressed?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ive got it all the way to the distribution block at the tailgate. It drops just a coupe of volts aftr the block.

I don't believe this is the right diagram. Lt Bl on mine is running lights. And my turn signals are integrated into the brake lamp. Turn sognals work dk blue goes to each brake lamp.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I checked the 15a fuse both ohm and voltage in the box. That is OK. White wire out of boo good. I know it must have two wores going back for brakes and turn signal to control them need to know wich ones they are but the end up BL at the light.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I got to take some of that back. Checking with the flashers Dk Bl and Lt Bl carry the signal to the junction box Dk Bl goes out to the taillights. I get turn signals no brake lights. Need correct diagram as I cannot figure out if it is the directional switch or something before that.
Expert:  Dave Nova replied 1 year ago.
The brake circuit and turn signal are separate. Brake light bulbs are the upper bulbs, turnsignals are lower bulbs. Double check upper bulbs, bulb connections and power to upper bulbs with brake pedal depressed.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I think you are looking at the wrong year or trim model. Uppers are running, middle brake/turn, lower back up lights.

2005 chevy silverado 1500 LS
Expert:  Dave Nova replied 1 year ago.
I am looking at schematics specifically for the 2005 chevrolet silverado. I also own a 2005 silverado and the brake light bulbs are the upper ones. If your truck is not configured in this way, I can opt out and let another expert try to help you with your issue.

Well the repair is not done. I habe put in a patch that's all. I am put of town and will be back on Friday. I have to test other areas. I am wondering if there is any other jubcture after the 15a fuse where it could have failed.
