    I have a 2002 GT, I have no problem with the running lights and turn signals but no brakes when the brakes are applied. I have replaced the brake light switch, put a new pigtail and have looked at the fuses. Everything looks great but I am still do not have brake lights. Does anyone have an idea on what I could have missed?

    Have you checked for power at the brake light switch? Have you tried jumping the connector directly?

    Have you tested the fuse? I burned out my brake light fuse over the weekend and when I pulled it I couldn't see that it was burned out. (My eyes aren't getting any younger!) I tested the fuse and found that no current was going through it.

    You can test these fuses with a meter or test light without unplugging them. Poke the test leads through the two holes in the top of the fuse. Check all of them just in case you identified the wrong location.
