Default No brake lights

I have a Ď91 Xj 4.0 auto with 240,000 miles. All of a sudden, the brake lights went out. When I turn my lights on, they work fine, so it canít be the bulbs. I changed my stop light switch, new bulbs, head light switch, and Iíve got nothing. I jumped the wire from the stoplight switch to the brake light, and before it would work. I tried it again yesterday, I didnít work. Iím also blowing my fuse 15 a fuse for the tail lights and interior/dash lights. What should I try next?

It sounds like you have a wire short. I don't know hoe electronically inclined you are but this can be a nightmare. I had no tail/brake/dash lights for a long time and I decided to stop replacing things and just take it to a guy who I knew could fix it. I still don't have all of my gauges working but he fixed my lights. Try to follow the circuit from end to end and see where the short may be if you know what you're doing
