Actually, it sounds like the real problem is a bad turn signal switch...non-functional brake lights are a classic symptom in W-bodies. I just went through that very thing at the beginning of the year.

Thanks an f-load youve been very helpful :)

i'm assuming the wire colors didn't change:

 

pink has +12V when key is in run position

orange has +12V at all times

 

pink goes to fuse 30(10 amp)

orange goes to fuse 5(15 amp)

I'm thinking it was around $65.00...mine needed the SWRC wires, which made it cost a bit more. Not 100% that price is correct, but it's close.

Yes, it was my first signal switch replacement. There's a nice writeup elsewhere on the list. You'll need a lock plate compressor, and a steering wheel puller, most parts stores like Autozone will rent you one, then refund your money when you return it. Hardest parts are being careful with the airbag, and getting that stupid lock ring off of the steering shaft to remove the lockplate, without destroying it.

Oh that's not bad at all, did you do it yourself?
