the connection between the battery and the brake lights
Headlights? Brake lights? Tail lights? Signal lights? Courtesy lights? Dash lights? Check engine lights? Need more info please.
Check the brake light fuse. If you have 12 volts at the brake light switch I would suspect the signal light switch is at fault.
The head light switch is shorting out ,or a bad connection
Check the ground wire. You have a bad connection somewhere.
There could be a severed connection somewhere along the line, or it could just be a blown fuse
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.
Look at your brake pedal where it connects under the dash. The problems you are having are both related to the brake pedal. There is a safety feature that won't allow you to shift your tranny until you have applied the brake, and since your brake lights are not coming on, there is either an electrical connection or a mechanical connection that is not working.
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.
The tail light/brake light bulb has two filaments. If one of the filaments is broken, you will get either only tail lights, or brake lights. If a new bulb doesn't work, then you have a broken wire or bad connection in your plug-in.
The tail lights and the stop lights work off of different circuits. The stop lights work when the brake pedal is depressed while the tail lights work when the light switch is turned on. Look for a burnt fuse or a bad connection.
It can be connection wires, bulbs or fuses.
If everything else works but the brake lights, check the brake light switch. It's mounted up under the dash and when you push the brake pedal a spring loaded plastic rod extends, making the connection inside the switch to light the brake lights. This is a pretty common wear item.....and fairly inexpensive.
Rear loom ground not contacting. Bulbs burned out or missing. Brake light switch or connection to it is fubared.
A bad ground wire is the most common cause of turn signals and brake lights not working. The ground wire connection might be corroded.
The flasher unit for the indicators. Pressing and releasing the foot brake for the brake lights. Turning the light switch on and of for the others. If it is not any of these then there is an electrical fault, possibly a loose connection.
Yes, it has brake lights.
It has a separate fuse .I bet you have a trailer connection. The correct fuse is noted in the owners manual.
bad connection/short or burnt out brake bulb. Check the harness both under the steering wheel and at the lights.
First things first you need to check your fuses. In the owners manual you will find the location of the fuse that relates to the brake lights. Take the fuse out and hold it up to see if the connection is broken if it is replace and the brake lights should work.
You probably have a loose wire connection in the brake light sockets. Insert a nail or probe tip into the back of the light socket where the wires are inserted and test the brake lights. (The socket can appear perfectly normal and the wires may even seem well attached.)
Low beam head lights? High beam head lights? Day time driving lights? Tail lights? Brake lights? Dash lights? Signal lights? Dome light? Glove compartment light? Trunk light? License plate light? Courtesy lights? Give us a clue.
Yes they indeed have brake lights...

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