If you have a meter.... check the bulb socket for 12V DC with someone applying the brake or watch for a 12V DC pulse on the meter when the meter leads are on the socket contact with the emergency flashers on. (+) lead to socket contact and ( - ) lead to chassis ground. If you have the 12V DC on the socket contact then there is a problem with the chassis ground wire.
\015\012The brake light socket has 2 terminals. One is for the tail light 12V DC power when the headlights are on and the other one is 12V DC only when the brake lights are supposed to be on. (i.e pulse hazard or brake applied light on)

\015\012 Also check the BRAKE light fuse in the fuse box located on the front of the left kick panel wall drivers side with a black cover. (4" x 2.5") There is also a fuse and relay box on the left side of the engine compartment. (4" x 7")

\015\012The wire color connected to your NEW brake switch that leaves the switch for the tail lights is the same color on the rear of the car and terminates at the tail light assy quick disconnect connector.
