Now neither brake light operates!

It started out that the left brake lamp was inoperative. (upper bulb) Bulb looks good so I replaced the circuit board and now neither side comes on. No taillights either, but the headlights work. The two fuses regarding brakes are both good. (front bay) The turn signals and the hazzard lights all operate (the center bulb). What am I missing?

What chassis? Need more info...
Turn signal switch is a culprit if the brake and turn share the same light.

DynoMax chassis. The taillight circuit boards are '05 Dodge Ram 2500. I wouldn't think air pressure would be an issue. The right brake light worked by itself, and all I've done is change the circuit board and I've lost them both.

If one worked before you changed the board, then that is where you should start looking for the problem. Look for broken wire, shorted wires.

Be sure to check for good ground. A bad ground could take out everything shared on a single circuit.
