Tail lights work but not brake lights? change bulbs? check for voltage in bulb holder while brake pedal being pushed?

I had to run a wire from my brake switch to brake light bulb. Splice into white wire on brake switch. And run it to the blue wire behind brake bulb. This is a temporary fix.

Try changing out the Multi Function switch in the steering column.

christopher thank you for that temp fix it worked, the funny thing was i disconnected the wire after seeing it work. so i can run the wire in the truck under the seat, and i pushed the break and its now working without the bypass wire, but if it start doing that again i'll retook up the temp wire again permanently. thanks again.
