Help for thedid you check to make sure the bulbs are ok? If you have then I think you will need to make sure that there is no corrosion in the bulb sockets and none in the wiring connections to the bulb housings. I was looking to correct the same problem. I have read elsewhere, that sometimes tightening the screws that hold the bulb sockets in might do the trick.

Alas, I (like you) hope it is not a short. Although, my radio in my 91 accord goes out sometimes too...weird. Anyway, I note also that there is no fuse for brake lights listed in the kickpanel access to the fuse box or the one under the hood. On that note, I have read elsewhere that the turn signal fuse may be at issue. Needless to say, this sucks.... cannot afford tickets for bulbs out. some, I am out -- cause I have to go fix my similar issue now while it is early. good luck JEM
