I have a '96 STS. None of the brake lights/running lights are working except for the strip/3rd brake light(s). The "brakelight" fuse is OK. I checked the bulbs and they're all OK too. Would this have to be wiring issue? Thanks

The main harness for rear lighting comes together near the left trunk fenderwell. Sounds like you have to start there - pull the carpet and look for bad body grounds or poor connectors.

It was the ground. The ground wire in the trunk on the left side under the carpet. I took it off and the metal was actually painted (at the factory I guess), so I sanded it down to bare metal, put it back and they all work. Who'da thunk that it would go "bad" 13 years later?
