Why would the brake lights stop working on a 1994 Buick Skylark if the fuses and bulbs are okay?

Answer

the brake light switch down at the brake pedal is most likely bad .

Answer

First, use a test light to check to see if the bulbs are getting power. If not, check the stop light switch. This is the switch connected to the brake pedal. When the brake pedal is pushed, this switch closes the circut and causes the brake lights to come on.

Answer

The brake lights are wired through the hazard switch, Turn the hazard lights on and off several times, the brake lights should start working.

the hazzard swith has a little plastic piece that dry rots over time, go to junkyard and by the switch, very simole job, cost me 25 cents

It's under a panel door that says FUSES on it that's under the dash over the brake pedal.

I've got a '92 skylark, and had a problem with the brake lights staying on even after the car was off. There is an adjustment that is connected to the brake pedal that you can adjust the tension on. It's kind of a pain to get up under there unless you're skinny though.

The only thing common to all those lights (but not to the center brake light) is the hazard switch. I'd check that next. On my 96 Century the hazards override the signals and brake lights meaning that the signals and brake lights must be wired into the hazard switch somehow.
