Do front or rear signals work? Does the center high mount brake light work?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Front work on all functions work. But only the back running light work and the center night mount only the cargo light work no break lights at all

Did all problems happen at the exact same time? This usually means the totally integrated power module has failed but the center brake light doesn't go through power module so that would work is module was the problem.

Where is that located?
Expert:  Dan replied 3 months ago.

It is built into fuse box under the hood and needs to be reprogrammed at dealer but since front lights are working and center brake light isn't working some testing needs to be done. Lets start by checking to see if gray/red wire going to brake light switch has power. If so jump the gray/red wire to the white/tan wire and then check to see if white/tan wire at high mount center brake light has power. Let me know, thanks.
