What should you check next if the fuses and bulbs are good but the brake lights will not work on a 1999 VW Beetle?
Your brake pedal, when pushed down activates a switch, usually located up under the dash fixed to a stationary point, where the brake pedal arm is hinged, making contact with the brake pedal arm at some point. When the brake pedal is pushed down, the switch activates and allows current to flow to the brake lights. Most likely, your switch has vibrated loose from its mounting, and or it is stuck. Locate the switch and check its function. It may need to be adjusted..a simple task which may clear up your problem. Hope this helps.

Why don't the brake lights work but the flashers and running lights work if the bulbs and fuses are good?
The brake lights and tail lights are separate wiring systems. Even some of the bulbs may have two separate bulbs in the same glass housing. If the bulbs are in fact working, then the next step would be to test the brake switch under the dash. When you depress the brake pedal the switch is pushed creating a connection to turn on the brake lights.

I would check and make sure that you have the right light bulbs installed. For your brake lights, it may take a double filliment bulb. If you put a single filiment bulb in, the lights will remain on all the time. If your bulbs are correct, i would double check the stop switch which is right above the brake pedal. My 1994 requires 1157 bulbs for brake lights, and 1156 for everything else. (Reverse, Signal)…

Are you talking about ALL the lights, or just the dash lights? If it is just the dash lights, you might have a bad ground for the dash electronics, or bad connection at the Dash Dimmer control. But if you are talking about headlights, too, check the gound wires on the battery... perhaps wiggle them around until the lights flash. The brake light switch should not do this. It only controls the back lights. if…
