Hi there

 

You could have a bad stop lamp switch ,, grab a flash light and look under the drivers side of the dash , ,, follow the brake pedal up and you will find the stop lamp switch ,, unplug the switch and use a paper clip or a jumper wire and jump White/Red wire to the Yellow/Gray wire and this should cause the brake lamps to come on ,, if it does then you have a bad stop lamp switch

if the brake lamps do not come on , then I would check fuse number F31 in the fuse box under the hood ,,

we can go back and forth on this page

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
