    Hey, so just today i was told that none of my brake lights were working. Its hard to believe that all 3 of my brake lights to go out. so i was thinking maybe it was a fuse blown, or my brake switch out?

    any ideas?

    Or even a bad ground. Check the fuse then check the switch first. The fuse is marked stop and the ground locations are 1G 1E and yes it could be the switch. Check that too. The grounds are located 1G is the drivers side kick plate cover and the 1E is the passenger side kick plate. So chances are it's the fuse or the switch.
