    Check fuses first!!! Then scan test needed to find what direction to go in! Possible clock spring, horn working ok? Air bag light on? Just have it scanned, save all the guess work, if fuses are ok!!

    You can, if you know how, check the brake light switch. It has 2 separate circuits, 1, is normally open and the other is normally closed.
