the connection between the battery and the brake lights

if the tail lights work but not brake lights then its most likely just a blown fuse or it could be the switch at the top of your brake pedal arm.

A bad brake light switch, and it is bolted to the steering column in under the dash.

I am having the same problam on a 1999 silverado have u got any help.

Brake lights indicate when a vehicle is about to stop. When brake lights stop working it is important to check the wiring, the fuse, and the light itself. It could be that any of those need to be replaced.

Check the brake light switch. It should be mounted on the upper part of the brake pedal or the brake pedal frame. If the brake lights go off when you unplug it you have a stuck or shorted switch.

If emergency brake is on 1 click it turns daytime running lights off. Pull out on emergency brake handle and see if this fixes the problem.

depress the emergency brake. That will shut off the DRLs.

I found this on my 1997 Silverado and found the connection from the wiring harness to the back OS the switch itself was loose, I could wigle it arouns and make the lights come back on.

replace the relay under the hood Also check brake lights switch had the same problem switched bulbs and worked fine

Mine was found on the stearing column near the brake pedal. Changing it did not solve my problem. Neither brake light in the fenders work. The brake light on the cab works. The courtesy lights do not work when I open the doors. The courtesy lights work when I use the remote to unlock the doors. We checked all fuses, lights. They are all good. My Chevy dealer has never heard of this problem but was willing to check it for a hefty fee.

push your parking brake one click and it will turn them out

you probably have a bad fuse. I would check that first if i were you.

Bad stop light switch? Located at the upper end of the brake pedal under dash area

Yes, it has brake lights.

My 92 Silverado right front brake sticking why

daytime running light module under drivers side dash

Yes they indeed have brake lights...

The brake light switch is under the dashboard, attached to the brake pedal. Try the break pedal, up underneath the dash. This is usually a switch which will open with the lightest pressure on the pedal, which is why some people's brakelights are on all the time. Driving with one foot on the brake pedal means driving with your brake lights on. Which increases the reation time of the the following driver. (End of Sermon.)

Then the brake lights are out but the middle one still lights up. (:
