For 2 days I seem to have been driving around with no brake lights. I know this because I just got my MOT only 2 days ago.

So Need some help with this one.

Things I have checked.

1. Bulbs all working fine.
2. 10 Amp Fuse good.
3. All other lights work fine.
4. I removed the two pin plug from the brake light switch on pedal and put a bit of wire so it made a loop thinking this would make the lights come on but nothing, is this the way the brake light switch work?

Anything else I can check ?

Hey, do they work when the engine is turned off, or is there nothing at any time? I would test the switch by the brake pedal with a multimeter, and check it connects and disconnects - there is a guide somewhere on here on refurbishing them.

Right been out in rain and checked the brake switch with a multi meter and got 12volts at it.

Removed the cable and put meter across the two pins and pressed the pedal have continuity put plug back in and pressed pedal got 12volts on both sides with pedal pressed.

So next question is where does the wire run upto the brake lights?
