1) Cleaned inside connector (wire harness) with CRC contact/connector cleaner; especially slot#3. Visually I now see copper instead of corrosion..
2) Jumped connector slot#1 to 3; but still no brake lights.
Looked for Light Failure Sensor. (1) Looked in trunk on driver side or left side, (2)removed cover, (3) found black box, (4) saw 6 wires (yellow+blue, blue+red, blue+red, black, and white) all attached to a connector. Problem, I did not see a green+white wire.
Also saw a yellow box.
Plan to look again tomorrow. I wrote down the wire colors (based on the wiring diagram)which I should see connected to the sensor. If I can find the sensor I plan to do the tests as instructed.
But if the black box above is actually the sensor please let me know.
