Brake Lights Went Out
On my 2000 Ford Taurus Wagon, my brake lights all went out together. I pulled out the fuse and it looked good. What next?

Check the brake switch on the brake pedal.

How do I check it?

I would do a continuity check on the switch, make sure when you push it in that it conducts. Then check for +12v on one of the legs, the other should go to either the brake lights directly, a relay or a control box.
