Final Answer

Chances are the cause of the defective light or brake lights circuit on your Chevy is a simple problem.
Moreover, you can blame most of these problems on little or no maintenance, according to James E. Duffy in "Modern Automotive Technology."
Of course, there is also the possibility of a hidden short or open somewhere in the middle of the circuit. But before you begin pulling wires, start troubleshooting at the most obvious places to get your lights back in working order.
