Stop lights do not come on when I press the brake. Running lights work. Stop lamp fuse is good. Any suggestions of what to look for or what/how to test? Are there any other devices on the stop lamp circuit? Thanks.
check the bulbs, then check the sensor in the back of the car. Remove that back interior panel, the one right next to the brake lights, and there should be a small box on the passenger side. You might need to replace this.
I believe the brake switch is fine. I put test probes in place of the stop lamp fuse and everytime I pushed the brake the needle would move. Do you know of a way to test that little white box? Is that what you meant by the "sensor"? I also have a feeling this might be the problem.
Thanks for the advice. I disconnected the switch harness, and crossed them together with a tester. The needle went down (it was set on dcv). What does that mean? The lights did not go on. When I place the tester on each side of the fuse socket, the needle jumps up when I hit the brake.
