    Hi all,

    A quick question. Just noticed both brake lights don't work. But the top panel of small brake lights do work? The fuse is fine, and so are the bulbs. I know it can't be the brake light switch.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers, Bhav

    Damn, didn't know that the top one still works if its the switch! I just replaced it less than a year ago!

    Lessons learnt for using Euro Car Parts I guess...

    Cheers peeps, will be getting the switch from TPS this time.

    How the F*!k can the middle brake light work if the switch is broken?
