Did you check the actual globes and fuse first?

Ok if you have cruise control there will be two brake controllers down there the cc switch has 2 electrical inputs ports (fig 1) one may be free as this is for trailers with electric brakes , and the brake light switch has one electrical input (fig.2).

Also the main reason these fail is because the button gets gummed up and seizes so when you take it off test the button funtion if its stiff or stuck you can repair it, the switch is two parts joined by plastic wing clips use a flat blade screw driver to take it apart then clean and lube (dry lube).


I did this to my SS last week.
