Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** you for visiting the site.

Is there power to the brake light switch?

Fuses good?

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
I changed all the fuses because I bought the car used and it had no cover with diagram.

I see, thanks. Is there voltage to the brake light switch?

Expert:  Super Mechanic replied 12 months ago.

A phone call would not be in your best interest. I am not able to draw diagrams or give instructions over the phone.

It sounds like possibly a bad brake light switch.
