a few weeks ago i was backing the car out of the garage when my gf told me my brake lights were out. when i checked them out all 3 brake lights were out, and the drivers side reverse light. i checked the fuses and didnt find any blown fuses. i checked the wiring and so far havent found any loose, frayed, or crimped wires. I would assume that maybe its the brake pedal switch but that wouldnt explain why 1 reverse light is out. does anyone have any input on the situation? Also, the turn signals and lights work.

I don't think you are getting power to the lights. Do your tail lights work? If not its definitely not getting power.

When I get off work I'll take a picture of what I need to unplug and re plug to get the brake lights to work. I had the same thing happen a few months ago.

Silly, but check the bulbs to see if at least one of them is coincidence. I thought the third brake light had seperate wiring but maybe I'm wrong. That's alot of lights to be out at once....

well, i did the plug thing and still nothing. i guess ill try the brake switch under the pedal. just doesnt really explain why the reverse light went out at the same time. when i get around to it ill try replacing the switch. in the mean time ive been driving my beater anyways.
