    I JUST BOUGHT A 1997 DISCOVERY DIESEL, THE BRAKE LIGHTS IS WHAT I CANNOT GET WORKING.
    THE HAZARDS WOORK FINE ALONG WHEN APPLYING THE BRAKES THE MIDDLE OR THIRD BRAKE LIGHT WORKS BUT NONE OF THE REAR BRAKE LIGHTS. COULD IT HAVE A SWITCH SOMEWHERE. BULBS ARE GOOD BECAUSE MY FLASHER WORK. ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRCIATED..THE ONLY FUSE UP FRONT IN HOOD I FOUND WAS ALSO GOOD :question: :)

    welcome to the forum, and if everything is fine then it might be in the wiring or connections

    welcome to the forums ,, ,, u have 2 circuits on u'r brake light switch ,, one is for the thrid brake light ,, and the other for the regular brake lights ,, u can try to change that first ,, very cheap to do ,, but IMO i feel that u have a turn signal swtich problem ,, since the Main (not the third) brake lights run thru it also ,, i know u said the turn and hazzards work ,, but if one curcuit is bad in that switch the brake lights will not work ,, if u are good and mechanically inclined ,, i can tell u how to ck the turn signal switch ,, if not ,, try the stop light switch first

    I have a freightliner chasis...all the turn signals work, along with the hazards and third brake light. I would be willing to try anything. I am mechanically inclined and have test lightks and fluke meters
    I appreciate the response since we are trying to leave thursday, but i need brake lights
