97 Powerstroke Brake Lights and Third Brake Light Not Working

Hello Guys,

I recently bought a 1997 f350 powerstroke and it did not come with a bed. Ive been trying to hook up some temporary tail lights and cant figure this out. I managed to get the lights to work when you pull the light knob out but when you push the break neither brake lights work or third brake light.


I checked all fuses and none are blown also.


Any help would be great! Thanks!

Zach

IIRC the center stoplight bypasses the multi function switch. need to check stoplight switch input and out put, power into switch will be hot at all times.

when i was in the auto parts scene i sold my fair share. but no ware near as many as government motors cars

the obs's dont have near as many problems as the superdutys and 97+ f150's had (think they used the same switch).
