View Full Version : No brake lights

The brake lights on my 1994 5-speed SC quit working. The fuse is good and I replaced the brake light switch on the brake pedal but still nothing.

I tried to jump the leads on the plug to the brake light switch with a paperclip and the lights do not come on (there is no voltage across the two terminal in the plug).

The bulbs are fine and the hazard lights work.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Check the wiring into the multi function switch; then check or replace the MFS.

Does the Center High Mount Stop Light (CHMSL) light up? Or no?

Also, do you have a multi meter so you can check for voltage at certain spots of the chain? Or a "trouble light"?

Found the problem. The wire going into the brake light switch plug was broken. Fixing it was simple but crazy-awkward. I think I need to see a chiropractor now.
