Brake lights not working

How do I tell if the brake lights not working is a wiring problem or the light switch? I've located the switch to near the radiator, how would I tell if the switch is the problem?

Thanks

Re: Sticking brakes?

Thankyou, it's a massive help....I've had a bit of experience with cars that are about 20 years old, I can seem to identify a problem but lack the confidence to be able to sort it out myself.

Seeing as we have a long weekend coming up I'm going to try all of the above and see how we go

My 1st question is how to tell whether the head gasket has failed? The oil seems a bit watery to me but I'm unsure how to tell any other way IMG_20200517_135259....
