My brake lights tend to work now and than...(the running lights work blinkers hazards etc) I am not getting anything from fuse # 41 doesn't blink flash whatever...the brake switch flashes when pressed in..D: they stopped working sunday morning but by the night they were back on... I noticed yesterday they stopped working..what could be my problem? I don't get no signal of power(when pressing brakes) all the way to the back..

Well...Would it be ok to place an inline fuse directly from the brake switch to the fuse box? splice into it?

Brake wire is typically a ground. So that won't fix the issue.

Have you tested the switch itself?

Yes, the switch is fine. Power comes through when pressed in...even onto the cable coming out of it.. but the cable going into the fuse box does not

Saw on another forum when googling fuse an it said check fuse under hood. The guy had an issue with his clutch cable rubbing a wire.

Also there was talk about #33 fuse as well as #41

Just said it was a 30amp. That should help narrow it down
