Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. Have you noticed if the high stop lamp is working or not?

Chevy Mechanic: Todd M, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

When I say high stop lamp, I mean the brake light in the center that is mounted separate.

Chevy Mechanic: Todd M, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

If you have checked the fuse already, and the center high mounted lamp is not functioning either, then the switch is faulty. If the high lamp does function, then you will need to test the white wire coming from the brake switch for power when the brakes are pressed. If the white wire is getting power, then you will need to replace the turn signal switch. Here, I am attaching the electrical information for the circuits so that you will have a clear understanding. I am also attaching the description of operation just in case.

None of the brake lights are working. We checked the fuses and they are good.
Chevy Mechanic: Todd M, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

I understand. If this is the case, then you will need to replace the brake light switch. If the fuse is good, then the switch is faulty. Here, I am attaching an electrical diagram where I have highlighted the information that shows the circuits that you are concerned with. As you can see the high lamp doesn't go through the turn switch. It gets its power from the brake switch. This means the brake switch is faulty. To cure your issue, replace the switch.

I can hear the switch click when I push the pedal down. Approximately how much would it cost to replace a switch?
Chevy Mechanic: Todd M, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

Here, I am attaching part and labor pricing information for the stop lamp switch. The labor pricing is listed in hours and depends on the hourly rate of the shop. $50 should cover it. Total.
