    Underdash fuses 1 and 5 feed the brake switch. With key on, 2 wires at switch connector should have power. I've seen broken wires, melted connectors, or maybe damaged harness due to add-on security system.
    Is that the correct switch? Is it properly installed so that it is "floating" on the mounting bolt?
    The "center brake light" is on a different circuit. Is that working?
