Oftentimes, the wires going into the pigtail on the back of the brake light switch break internally. You can jump the pigtail with a paperclip and wiggle the wires to see if the lights come on.

My 1998 ford club wagon makes noise when I hit a bump. What do u think it is

My 1998 ford club wagon gears are very loose and now the service engine light is on


I don't mean to be disrespectful but if you haven't replaced the bulbs, consider that. Both bulbs have burnt out on me before.. REMEMBER there are more than one element in a Brake Light so it can appear to work in Running light mode, but not work on Brake mode. Replace both bulbs to be sure. IT was the answer for my daughters car.
