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.

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.

My Chevy dealer has never heard of this problem but was willing to check it for a hefty fee.

Why would your tail lights work in your 1996 Silverado Z71 4-wheel but not the brake lights Is it a brake light switch Where's that located?

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.)
