are all fuses OK?
you should have an open circuit when no brakes applied ie: lots and lots of Ohms
when either is pressed you should have a virtual short, ie no or very little ohms
do you have continuity to the brake light?
are all other lights/indicators OK? check earth/ground to the frame


there's a start for you

Dont think you can swap out a bulb type for an LED light mate without modification.

Has the light worked before. IE was it going then it broke or is it a new setup
