Hello Ron,
I have an 05 Silverado which I replaced the cab. Everything works except the brake lights. I have asked just answer earlier in spring and the first mechanic bowed out and the second one was asking me to try stuff but not really following up . So I asked for another mechanic and he closed the session.
Now I am starting fresh with you. Fuse has power on both sides
Expert:  Ron replied 1 year ago.

Okay are you getting power at the break light switch?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ron is the brake light switch on the brake pedal? If yes there is no power to the brake pedal.
Expert:  Ron replied 1 year ago.

Yes the break light switch is on the top of the break pedal. Power to the break light switch come from the break light fuse located in the interior fuse panel on the brown wire to the switch. See the wiring diagram in the link below for reference. Do you have power in and out of the fuse? Copy and paste the link to your browser to open and view it.

I'll print out this diagram today and start working on it Tommorrow . I've checked this before and there is no power to brake pedal and fuse is live on both sides. There is a plug hanging down under dash that is live and with a continuity tester goes to brake fuse. I will show you a photo of it. When I changed the cab, I'm thinking I plugged something in wrong or missed a plug.

If this wire is coming from the break fuse that it need to be connected to the connector for the break feed at the switch. Look at the wiring diagram when you can and let me know if you see a connector number and Ill look for a location.

Ok great let you know
Expert:  Ron replied 1 year ago.

Sounds good. Im here all day if needed.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I looked at the drawing you sent. I don't have power to the fuses in the cab that I have highlighted in red. I also could not find a spot for that plug and have a couple more which I'll send you photo's of. Thinking they are accessories ? There is a wire plugged into the brake pedal presently.
Expert:  Ron replied 1 year ago.

With out being there to see what you are trying to do all I can doe from here is provide you with the complete power distribution wiring diagrams which show you where all the power supply's come from. See them in the 6 links below. Have a look at them and see if this will help you find the source.
