    Brake Lights Out

    '00 Grand Voyager, all brake lights are out, bulbs are good. I'm on vacation with my family and am trying to spend my time efficiently. Is there any chance that the brake light switch is not the fix?

    Yes, it could be the switch that runs the emergency flasher, as all brake wires go thru that switch too, intermingled with the turn signal wiring.
    I would guess you need the 4-way flasher switch replaced if the brake switch isn't working.
    You could test the brake switch by driving 45 MPH, engage cruise control, then see if the cruise control goes off when you press the brake pedal. If that works, the brake switch is good and the 4-way switch is bad.
    Let us know what you find out. Good luck my friend.

    Good idea about testing the switch via cruise control operation.

    It was the switch. Took about two minutes to fix; the switch was $20.

    Thanks for your help.
