Drivers side brake light not working. they are LEDs. The tail light and turn signal work, everything works on passenger side. Tried new assembly. same thing, no brake light. Cleaned grounds Checked brake/turn plug terminal on the harness with the brake pedal depressed with voltmeter, no voltage. Can't be brake switch because other side works

Under the bed on the driver's side close to tailgate area should be a ground. Did you clean/check ?

Jiggle and/ or cycle the hazard button. IIRC, all brake lighting goes through the hazard light switch, for the taillights.

Try putting regular bulb and see if it is working?
If yes, then the LED is bad.
LED can go bad despite what the seller say.

Tried this tonight and it worked! Both brake lights are on, may need to get into the steering wheel and check wiring/grounds
