    I think it is on the left hand side by the radio just below the emergency flasher.

    If the stop lights are not working typically it is because the switch has failed. The switches were never designed to last 50 years with 6 bulbs. They typically fail every few years when the car is used daily. I have never heard of a Cougar brake lamp circuit breaker failing, but of course anything is possible.

    I was able to locate the circuit breaker (had to remove the dash pad). Brake lights and hazard warning lights not working. Tested the circuit breaker with a test light. It had current coming in from the battery side, but nothing going out on the brake switch side. Purchased a new 15 amp circuit breaker. It has current coming in and going out. Brake lights and hazard lights working fine now. Do not know what caused it to trip. The only thing I changed before it tripped was new tail light bulbs. Thanks for your help locating the circuit breaker. Mike
