    Brake lights all out except the one up on the package tray. Pulled the fuse (conveniently located in a box under the rear seat) and it tests good. Put the fuse back and the brake lights all work now as they should. So, is there a relay in the circuit? None of the relays in the box under the seat are labelled to indicate they relate to brake lights. Anyone have any insight here?

    Find a Factory Service Manual. You will need it if you want to keep and work on that car. I have them for my 98 Riv, and believe me, you need them, they are NOT optional.

    Think the package tray brake light is on its own circuit. Brake lights on own circuit.

    Will do! Meanwhile, does anyone know if the brake light circuit runs thru one of the relays in the rear (or front) fuse box?

    Check the turn signal switch. Have somebody watch the brake lights while you play around with the turn signal switch. They won't always work that way, but if they do, the switch is bad. Also, if the hazard switch is on the column, wiggle that around .
