"Help" Brake lights don't work

"Fixed" It was the energency flasher switch as mentioned in the previous thread. A little WD 40 and pushing it off and on a couple of times and now they work, what a weird connection with the brake lights. Thanks again to the posts in the previous thread.

The connection to the brake lights & the flashers (& turn signals) is this. When you use the signals or flashers you are (jeep is) actually flashing the brake lights. They all share the same filament in the bulbs. Try working the flasher switch from time to time to keep the contacts in the switch clean.
