57 Brake Light Woes

HELP!! I cannot get the brake lights to work on the 57. Here is what I HAVE checked: the turn signals which use the same filament as the brakes are working for both sides, there is 12 volts going into and out of the pressure switch when the brakes are pressed, if the wires are reversed, the brake lights work when the headlights come on. I am positive there is a good ground and no short in the wires from the dash back, or the turn signals would not work. There is current coming from the switch, but not getting to the harness that goes down the side of the car. The harness from the dash back is completely intact, and every other light on the car works.

I am completely stumped!
