Brake lights and rear turn signals

Hi! New to this forum and skoolies, and learning as I go. Thanks in advance for any suggestions. We have a 1999 Freightliner 8 window (31') FS 65 chassis skoolie with air brakes that I am just getting started on. My break lights and rear turn signals aren't working, and I have a few questions about the wiring.

- Is there a brake light switch, and where can I find it on my model? I have looked on the floor near/around the brake pedal and the driver's area but can't find it (mostly because I am not exactly sure what I'm looking for).
- The fuses look unusual to me, where can I find replacements or can I use standard fuses? See pic.
- As far as I can tell there is only one wire that goes to the lights in the back. I removed the two wires that seemed to only connect to the door alarm. Unfortunately I didn't check the brake lights before I did this (I was by myself, and yes, lesson learned). Did I screw up the lights by removing the door alarm wires?

Thanks for your help. Click image for larger version

Sorry I didn't answer your question with my post. Was so happy how easy the led switch over was I was posting on that instead of paying attention to your problem. My error. My console on the 1999 is such a rats nest that I try to avoid looking in there.



Maybe someone else can help you. My bus us an International and the fuses are standard blade fuses.
