2003 Rubicon - Brake Lights won\'t work

My friend's 2003 Rubicon's brake lights gave out recently. All 3 don't receive power when the brake pedal is pushed.

EVERYTHING else works... hazzard, parking lights, backup lights.. etc....

We checked the appropriate fuses behind the glove box... and gave the fuse-box under the hood (next to the battery) a once over.

We tried to follow the wiring... no noticible issues. Its a 2003! Everything is clean and pretty!

Any ideas where to look?

Thanks guys,

I'd check the brake light switch. It should actuate when the pedal is depressed, may have a wire disconnected or just be faulty.

Hmm... is the brake light switch attached the brake pedal?

Thanks,

I'd just skip the headache of trying to figure out what's wrong and take it straight to the dealership that it was purchased from. It's a 2003 for gods sake. I assume it still has its warranty?

Yeah.. that's plan B. I think he didn't want to give up his wheels for a day or so... especially if its a 20 cent fuse that he just couldn't find.

Plus..he owed a 93 for years, so the concept of a warrenty is a little foreign. [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
