Correct, fusebox - stop lamps 15A. Power is drawn from the IGN fusible link, but if that's blown you won't have indicators or hazard lights for example.

Yes, or when you installed the switch you didn't fit it properly. (missed it by that much . . . . :P )

Honestly can't remember how a brake switch works but can you connect it without fitting and depress it with your finger to see if it works. then at least youd know if it was a fitting issue or a switch issue... pretty picture 2!!
