My brake lights went out, everything else works, turn signals, regular lights... I had everything checked, the brake switch under the brake pedal (replaced it), the actual light bulbs, the fuses, etc....It's just not getting power to the lights (had it tested), a mechanic said there's a break in the wire between the fuse box and brake lights? I'm not sure about that...has anyone had this kind of problem? any suggestions would help....Thanks, Rich

Hey Rich, There's a "bulb check relay" on these cars, it's what turns on the Bulb Check Light. Check that the power signal is reaching the relay from the brake light switch, and that the power is leaving the relay going to the brake light bulbs. Good Luck!
