Question Need Help!

I have no brake lights, but my tail lights work. I checked the fuse and their good. Could it be a relay?

Change the bulb! The bulb has two filaments, one for tail lights, one stop light. The stop light filament is likely done!

Are they not working for front and rear brakes, or just one? I would check the pressure switches.

Smile Brake Lights

Thanks to everyone for all the help. I took it to the mechanic and he found the problem. The brake lights were stuck on. He removed the front pressure switch and it tested fine. It looked new. No wear at all. The lever its self was not clicking it off. It didn't seem to be worn at all. When he reassembled it he noticed alot of play up and down in the lever. He then shimmed it and it seemes to work just fine. Says he's never seen anything like this before.
