    aight well it's a '78 and I got no brake lights i checked the bulbs and the fuses and it ain't neither one of those. I think it may be the plastic switch right above the brake pedal that makes the connection any body else had this problem or got a solution for me before I get a ticket. Preciate the help

    Unplug the switch and run a jumper wire across the two connections, or if there's only one (I don't remember) ground it and have someone see if the brake lights work. If they do it's the switch.

    If you knew the truth, you too would be against marijuana prohibition!

    I'd go ahead and replace that switch anyway because it's probably never been replaced before. Also, check the connections from the wire harness out back.

    Check and make sure you still have turn signals and hazard lights. They are all the same part of the bulb if they all work then it's your switch.

    preciate it I figured out it was a fuse that was hidden way back up in the corner after I replaced the hazard fuse(which was blown too) and the brake switch
