Having problems with your 2006 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 2WD ?

I have a 2006 Chevy Silverado 1500 4wd, and both of my brake lights stopped working, but the light above the bed of the truck still works. I have checked all the fuses, changed the bulbs, and checked the brake switch, and changed that just to check. I still cant get the brake lights to work. I traced the power and it works all the way to the junction box, but not out to the brake lights. So I bought a new junction box, and I am still not getting any brake lights. Any idea's on what else it

Hi, I have a 96 windstar. One of the wires on the brake light switch down at the brake pedal has broke at the plug and then when I went to repair it touched the steering bar and sparks flew. Once I repaired the wire I still had no brake lights and couldnt shift out of park. I then checked all the fuses and changed two blown ones, I dont know what they were because the cover is missing and none of the fuses are marked. But still same problem. I then checked the power to switch and there is none.

Brake lights will not illuminate when brake is pressed. However, the signals work along with evening lamps as well.

I have changed the brake light switch, I actually tried two switches, because I still have the same problem, the lights stay on. It started out to where I could tap the brake pedal and the lights would go off, so I am wondering if I could possibly have gotten 2 bad switches , or is there something in line that I need to check. I have not checked any of the bulbs at this time , and was considering doing that before any further testing.

1995 S-10 Blazer. I don't have any brake lights. My turn signals work. I put in a new brake switch on the brake pedal but I still have no brake lights.

I know the turn signal and brake lights were on the same fuse on the older cars, but I'm not to familiar with the newer cars. Thank you for the help.

I have had my driver's side front wheel bearing changed twice and still have issues with the ABS light coming on sporadically and hearing the noise when turning sporadically.
