have any of you guys had a problem with your third brake light not working? I changed my tail lights and third brake light to led. I have a cargo light but not 3rd brake light. Any one have any ideas about what might be a problem?

Could be a defective brake lamp switch. Have you checked for power and a ground at the bulb socket?

Check Fuse #24 (15A). If not that, and the old lamp doesn't work either.....I'm with Randy on the switch. :smileup:

I know that this thread (even with relatively recent replies) would be considered "old" on many other forums but any more, that doesn't seem to be the case on this forum ?.

So, I'm glad that the OP's problem, as well as that of several others, was solved. My question would be why would a fused circuit powering a single bulb "blow" in the first place? I'd have to suspect that the conversion to LEDs might have something to do with it.

It would be interesting to know if this has continued to be an issue for those with this problem and since they now know how to fix it, just haven't been posting on the issue. Just wondering?

this same circuit typically also runs power to brake controller on 3rd gen and possibly other gens
