Answers :


The brake lights get their power from the "lights" fuse. Find the rear brake master cylinder. There's a metal line that comes out of the cylinder and goes towards the rear wheel. Follow this line and you'll come to a tee fitting with a pressure switch screwed into it. Check to make sure the wires are firmly attached to the switch. Use a test light and check for voltage to to the orange/white wire with the ignition switch in the ON position. If no voltage, you'll have to trace the wire back to it's source. If you have voltage there, jumper across the switch with all the wires attached and see if the brake light shines. If not, you've got a problem with the wiring going back to the brake light Good Luck Steve
