156 Brakelight failure - HELP!

Hi everyone,

my 02 plate 1.8 156 seems to have suffered brakelight failure. All 3 rear brakelights have stopped working yet all of my other lights, indicators etc are fine. Have changed the brake pedal sensor but stll the same fault. All the fuses seem intact but i'm not entirely sure which ones cover the brakelights anyway as the owners manual is a bit confusing!

Does anyone have any ideas as to what it could be? Surely all the bulbs couldn't have blown at the same time including the parcel shelf brakelight? They all seem fine too!

All help greatly accepted!

the fuses should be in the main fuse box, to the right of driver knee.

middle row, 1st & 2nd form left... both a re 10 amp

3rd brake light is MIDDLE fuse bottom row.

it is possible that the brake light bulbs are blwon & so are the 10 1.2w bulbs in the 3rd light or else its disconnected.

easiest to chek the bulbs of the 2 main brake lights....

in the boot you'll need an 8mm socket to take off the 2 nut son the cover & then just unlcip the little circuit board..... these are the lights that are par tof the car, not the boot.

BTW your car is a alFa not @lpha
