87 Fleetwood Brake Light Problem

Asked by Nov 18, 2013 at 03:57 PM about the 1987 Cadillac Fleetwood D'elegance Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have an 87 Fleetwood with brake light problems. The center (high) brake light works, but the left and right brake lights don't. Also the right rear hazard light does not work even though all of the bulbs are good. All turn signal lights work(front & rear), taillights, parking light, and side marker lights all work fine. I understand there may be some sort of relay that goes to the lower brake lights. If there is, where is it located and how do you check it.  Thank you in advance for any help that may come.

possible multi function switch (aka blinker switch), brake light and blinker both run through the switch the center one is the only one that doesnt run through it. It is located on the steering column. Sounds like it has a short in it.
