Brake lights won't work for a 98 Chevy silverado z71 k 1500

Asked by Mar 22, 2015 at 11:03 PM about the 1998 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Cheyenne Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I'm having the same problem. I have a 98 z71 the blinker on the passenger rear wasn't  
working so I got new circuit boards and replaced both sides with bulbs as well. The
blinkers were working. Went to the store and the fuse to the blinkers blew. I changed it
and it blew 2 more times every time I would turn the right blinker on. I replaced it one last
time and they started working again and the fuse has yet to blew but now my brake lights
aren't working. The signals work and when I turn my lights on the tail lights light up but
when I press the brakes nothing... I've changed relays, fuses, brake switch, all bulbs
circuit boards in the tail lights and checked for bad or cut wires. I'm at a complete loss.
Any help would but gladly appreciated!
