Brake light/ Ignition switch

Post by Sonarman » Mon Mar 13, 2017 8:48 pm

I have a question.
Does the ignition have to be on for brake lights to work?
I am troubleshooting rear flashers not working and notice rear brake only work with ignition switch turned on. All other lighting circuits work.

Both of mine operate the same way - ignition switch has to be on for the brake lights to work.
