There were 2 systems used, 1 was a switch under the dash that was attached to the brake pedal and the other was a switch that was screwed into the master cylinder under the hood, as both system had switch problems that would be the place to start, make sure that they have power in and power out when the pedal is depressed, if you have power in but not out replace the switch, if you have power through the switch then double check your turn signal switch as the turn signal switch cancels brake light on right or left turn but it maybe bad and cancelling both lights. Hope this helps.


On a 1963 the switch is down on the brake pedal. It just may be out of adjustment. The bracket and the plastic get old and slip down. better off just replaceing the brake light switch on the back side of the brake pedal


In 1965 I belave it was they put a switch in the master but that had nothing to do with the brake lights it was there to let you know your brake fluid level was laow. Hell they still use that system on Fords
