I've read that you need to jump pin 5 at the switch since it probably isn't getting power from its own wire. (most probable cause is a flimsy boot on the wire harness in trunk area) Pink has power. Have yet to back trace and up the fuse size. Brake lights will use 10 amps so make sure you don't burn anything else out tapping power

This is more than likely a grounding pro inlet. Did you try replacing the Relay #7 in the front fuse box? I circled it for you in this picture I added. You don’t need to buy a new one. You can switch out one you know works from a different area in the fuse box. Also, when you pull out the original one, make sure the metal parts are clean, shiny, free of corrosion. If they are not, that could be the issue. Gently clean them with a wire brush, fine grit sand paper, or an Emory board. If they are shiny and it still doesn’t work, it’s probably a bad relay. They can be purchased at your local parts store for around ten bucks. Good luck to you.

Yes my connector behind the bumper the bracket snapped and melted on the exhaust and melted the wires together so they was shorting out on mine I cut the connector out along with the bad section of wire and wired them together with heat shrink tape!

I had the same problem. Turned out to be the rear lights wire was too long n was toughing the muffler. Got it spliced n taped up & immediately all lights worked & never had that problem anymore. Never did I think it'd be such a easy fix

I'm having the same issue on my 2012 dodge charger rt. The lights turn on when parked. As soon as I go down the road they turn off. I still have signals and break lights just no running lights for the rear. The front work fine.
