Question All three brake lights are out???

Hey guys/gals.. this may be a simple one - although I don't know what I could be missing....

All three (right, left & center) brake lights aren't working?!?!?

PARKING LIGHTS ARE WORKING...:rtft:

TURN SIGNALS ARE WORKING....:rtft:

I checked the STOPLIGHT fuse - its good (replaced anyway)

Checked connections on the pedal switch too - all seems tight
Also lightly scraped the buttons for 3rd brake light (just in case)
What is it? Any ideas?

I checked the large relay box under the hood... but don't see anything there that (I think) has any bearing

Do you have an aftermarket hitch with an inline connector for trailor lighting installed? If so, check the connection there. Sometimes the connector works loose or goes bad. Other than tracing wires, that's the only thing I can think of. It's highly unlikely that you blew all 3 bulbs.

check the brake switch to make sure it is working not just plugged in. I.E. Is there power on both terminals when the pedal is depressed?
