Brake lights not working. It's not the brake switch.
My brake lights do not work. I have checked every fuse and bulb. I have pulled the switch, took it apart, cleaned it, used a multimeter to check it, triggered it manually, still nothing. I have applied the multimeter to the brake light sockets, not a fraction of a volt when the brakes are pushed. I checked the power going into the break switch, I get 11.5 ish volts. I am pretty certain it is not the switch. I can't find a wiring diagram for the break lights, so I don't know where to test next to pinpoint the problem. I just know it's some where between the switch and the bulbs.
Also, it may be relevant, the light on my towing package no longer comes on when pressing the breaks. A while back, when i had to pull a trailer and the lights weren't working, it was due to a bad ground on those little four pin towing plug thingies (technical term). I only replaced one at the time, and bypassed the six pin and plug instead just plugging it directly into the 4 pin on the trailer. I have since replaced the other side and reconnected the four pin to the six. I don't know if that's relevant.
