I should start by saying hi to all. I am a new to corvette action center. I rececntly purchased my first corvette, a 1987 yellow coupe, and like it very much. It does have a few issues which is what brought me here.

The most difficult one so far has been the lack of brake lights. I have checked the fuse good and there is 12vdc to the fuse when the ignition switch is on. I have checked the switch at the pedal and it is good. The turnsignals and flashers work fine. The schematic shows the wires from the brake switch going into the instrument cluster. Any tips on how to further troubleshoot this will be appreciated.

How did you test the pedal switch?? I think it is the switch. Have you tried powering the brake lights after the switch it see if they light? I would try this first.

Tested the switch by removing it testing the resistance with a multimeter. the switch opens and closes when actuated. I like the idea of powering the lights at the switch.
