    Brake light issue

    I have a 2002 WRX wagon and the rear brake lights, including the led in the window, are no longer working. I checked the fuse and it seems to be ok. Any other ideas?

    Not sure where the connector is for it, but if you connect your multimeter to pins 2 and 3 (2 is top left if you hold the connector with the tab on top, 3 is bottom right), you should see less than 1 ohm resistance with the brake pedal not depressed, and with it depressed you should see greater than 1 Mega Ohm.

    Found a diagram, it's B65 as shown here:



    Man, I just love electrical problems.

    How many miles are on the car vehicle? I know this might sound like a long shot but did you check all the bulbs? I had something similar to this on my Legacy and I had like 4 bulbs out back there..Something simple to check...If no bulbs are burned out back there I would be checking for power and ground at each connector while the brake pedal is depressed...than go from there as mentioned...
