CHMSL brake light not working...but rear brake lights are
Have a 2002 Ram 4x4, 4.7l. Truck failed inspection (North Carolina) due to my over head CHMSL brake light is not working when I press the brake pedal. My rear brake lights are working fine. I replaced the bulb (which looked good) and checked the fuse (#24) for the CHMSL light, which was good.
Any ideas as to what it could be? Was thinking the brake light switch, but I would think that none of my brake lights would work if that were bad. but I am not sure after looking at the wire diagram showing only the CHMSL light being fed by the switch??

I didn't get a ticket for the light out, got one for expired tags. In NC your vehicle has to pass inspection before you can get your registration renewed. It failed because of the chmsl not working.
I replaced the switch last night...still does not work. Dug out my light probe but it decided not to work. I have a hand held tester, but no idea what to set the dial to or what holes to plug the leads into. There is about 20 options to set the dial to and 3 inlets to plug the 2 leads (one black/one red) into.
