Your turn signal switch is bad. The brake lights run through the turn signal switch. check the plug-in for burned wires or bad connections before you buy a switch.

Be aware there's 2 types of turn signal switches for 64... 1st design and 2nd design. The 1st design (1963-64) unit uses a different bolt pattern on the cup and the repop switches are crap quality. 1st design original is imprinted with SAE Q63 . 2nd design (1964-65) replacement is available from AC Delco and it's a good one. It is possible to upgrade the cup to 2nd design if you can find one.

is the repop for the 2nd design (mine) no good either, i noticed a nearly 100 dollar price difference?? and do they come with all the contacts etc... i read another thread on here where a dude dropped his contacts and (springs?) the lil metal tabs in the switch, some of mine fell out and i can't figure how to put'em back .I have all the pieces. is there somehow to explain how they go or do i jus need to buy the switch? and believe me it's no show car, I jus need brake lights..lol

The 2nd design replacement is from AC Delco, it's excellent quality. You"ll never have to worry about it again (for 40 yrs:)). Does this help?
