It's the turn signal switch at the steering wheel, that is the problem. Very exspensive to get replaced,and to hard for an amuture to do.

If you have checked all fuses and bulbs sounds like ur turn signal switch in ur steering wheel. I had the same problem and was switch.

Try the turn signal switch in the steering column. I know it sound stupid but that is the problem and they are not cheap. At a service shop besides a dealer you are probably talking around $200+. I had the same problem, sometimes the rear brake lights would work and sometimes not but window light always worked. Good Luck

if you 3rd brake light still works it is most likely a fuse. If none of your lights work usually it is the brake light switch located on the top of the brake pedal. Although there could be some odd wiring issue. Chances are it is the switch.

Does the 1967 Pontiac GTO have a separate fuse for the brake lights?

If everything else works but the brake lights, check the brake light switch. It's mounted up under the dash and when you push the brake pedal a spring loaded plastic rod extends, making the connection inside the switch to light the brake lights. This is a pretty common wear item.....and fairly inexpensive.
