Brake lights do not illuminate. Checked fuse, bulbs and wiring. All were operative. Had brake lamp switch replaced. Lights still not operational. (new stop lamp switch was the same manufacturer as the one that is currently under NHTSA investigation.) since new part didn't work, old part was reinstalled and new one returned to dealer. The dealer wants to charge $300 just to tell me why brakes won't work and is aware of what has already been tried. Brake lights still not operational.
