I just purchased a 95 Chevy c35 truck and am having troubles figuring out why the brake lights don't work.  I have checked the bulbs and they are not burned out.  I also checked the the brake pedal to see if the brake swithc and I don't find one.  What can I check to troubleshoot this problem?  all the other lights seem to work (running, turnsignal, backup).

Found the problem.  I pulled the stop light switch(brake light switch) and opened it up.  the connectors that get pressed together to make contact, where corroded.  Inside the switch there are 6 metal connectors, 2 witch make contact with each other, when the brake pedal is depressed.  I  Cleaned them with some sand paper and reassembled/installed in the truck.  Wallah... I have brake lights.  I could of easily replaced the stop light switch but this saved me $10 and a trip to the parts store.

It wasn't that long ago that I went to Autozone two or three times a week. I haven't been there at all lately. I think it's because $10 always turns into $100!
