Brake lights
I recently had a problem with rear calipers seizing , where now I noticed my brake lights are not coming on , I checked the fuses and they are o.k.
Could it be possible that the bulbs are burnt out and how many are there for me to check if this is the problem?
Should the brake lights come on engaging the front hand brake or only the rear when rear brake is applied?
Thanks for any input,

Brake lights should light up with either front lever or rear brake pedal.

ON the interstate I think there are just two lamps one either side in the side luggage container.

On the Aspencade there are two extra in the rear trunk.

I doubt if all the bulbs have blown, unlikely.

More likely in the case of the rear pedal check to see if the switch needs adjustment.
In the case of the front, remove the connectors from the switch, turn on the ignition and jump the two wires together if the lights light up then you know it's the switch.
Check for voltage at the front switch Green/white wire.
The only stupid questions are the one's that are not asked.
