Hi There!!
The brake lights (2 bottom) will not light when the brake is pressed. The third one (top) works fine.I have changed the bulbs,fuse and brake switch. Does anyone have any other recommendations? I am not the most mechanically inclined person, but willing to try! Many thanks and love the forum!!!

Ok - there's a junction box under the trim panel next to the liftgate (near the bottom passenger side corner of the liftgate in the van (not on the liftgate)) - there are a bunch of connectors going to it (9 of them) - the connector which is 5 pins across on the bottom, then has one 1 pin, a space, and then 2 pins on the top (connector should be green/white in color) - (pins 2 and 3 - they go to white/black wires (both are the same - these are the two pins which are by themselves on the top of the connector)) - check to see that those two pins see 12V relative to ground when you push the brake pedal - if they do, then the issue is in the door, if they don't it's in the junction box. The top brake light is controlled via the brown 4 pin connector which goes to the junction box (pin 2 - it's the one which also has a white/black wire going to it) so if that light is working, then everything upstream from the junction box is just fine.
