Where on a 1978 Jeep CJ5 do the brakes trigger the brake lights to work when the problem is that the rear turn signals work but not the brake lights?

The switch is located at the top of the steering column near the brake pedal. There is a bracket attached to the brake pedal that contacts and opens the switch when the brake is not being applied. Push on the brake the switch closes, and the lights come on. Look up the switch on or equivalent to see what it looks like. It's very hard to spot where it's at. Good luck Answer i believe there is a switch on the brake pedal lever near the top. I will go look on my jeep when I go back outside. Also, the brake light circuit has its own fuse separate from the signal lights.
