Pinpoint Test G: One Or More Stoplamps Are Inoperative Normal Operation
The stoplamp switch is provided voltage through circuit 10 (LG/RD). When the brake pedal is applied, the stoplamp switch routes voltage to the smart junction box (SJB) through circuit 511 (LG). The SJB then provides voltage to the stoplamps through circuits 1783 (RD/WH), 1374 (TN/LB), 1728 (LB/OG), and 1363 (WH/RD). Ground for the stoplamps is provided through circuit 1205 (BK).
check the fuse box under the hood on the right side, fuse#59 and #67 are 30 amp fuses for the smart junction box, if they are good check fuse #15 stop lamp switch(10amp) locate in the fuse panel in the right kick panel, if its good then you could have either a bad stop lamp switch or either a bad smart junction box, have you ever notice any leaks on the right side of your car around the kick panel (wet carpet)? there is a TSB with water leaks in that area which could cause corrosion to the terminals to the SMJ which could cause your problem or worst short out the SMJ,
Disconnect all the SJB connectors.
Connect all the SJB connectors and make sure they seat correctly
if you still have a problem then it looks like you'll have to visit your local dealer, they will hook you up to the computer and pull some codes to track down your problem.
