    A 15 Amp fuse marked Stop protects the brake light circuit. Check the green/ red wire at the brake light switch (at the brake pedal for power , when the brake pedal is pressed the green /white wire at the switch should have power or the switch is bad. Green/white then runs all the way back to each brake light bulb. Check that the White/ Black wires at the bulb holders are making a good ground.
