Okay, about to trade multimeter for 3 pound sledge.

95 GT 5.0 ragtop 5 speed.

Anyone out there know what could cause brake lights to work when keys are in pocket, but do not light when car is running?

back story:
had concerned driver inform me my brake lights didn't come on.
okay so if all lights out, probably wiring or switch (had wires break at connector before) wires good, replace switch I'm golden right? ha. check and ta-da lights.

in mini mall parking lot do not see brake lights in rear view. so get home and set up for light replacement. finally got bulbs, replaced and check, yes there be lights. start up car. and now no lights.

So profanity ensues, and debating mechanical agitation with a sledge hammer.

Does anything else not work?

The brake circuit goes through the turn signal switch, my guess is that you are missing a circuit off that switch.
