Hey guys Been troubleshooting my brake light issue and need some help. I have all other lights, 4 way flashers and all. Just no Brake lights. I have replaced the brake light switch and still have issue. So there is a 3 way power plug that connects to the brake light switch, orange, white and blue wires I think. When I check if I have power there I get some weird numbers, like 1.2-1.7. So what kind of power numbers should I Be seen with the ORANGE and White wires? What fuse actually controls the brake lights? Any more idea’s?

have you tried looking in a manual or doing any more research on specs? i would've thought no more than .5 volts but am unsure myself. I go to school today i can ask my teacher to double check.

have you checked to see if the constant hot wire to the brake switch has power

Are you confident you're checking to a good ground? A voltmeter only sees the difference in voltage between two points

I found my issue, it was the white wire coming down from the steering column, somebody did a Hack splice job. Always check the electrical tape connections. LOL
