Newbie needs help

Morning all. I have a 95 YJ 2.5 4 that I'm having a brake light problem with. Ok to start with ALL lights work on the front. Headlights, flashers, directions etc etc. On the rear I only have tail lights. No hazards, no turn or brake lights. When I turn on my directionals the green arrow stays solid on both left and right. I checked the brake light switch. I looked for a diagram but couldnt find one. My BLS has 4 wires on it. I do have power on one coming into it and power coming out. When I press the button the power is broken so I would think that the switch is fine. My question on that is out of the 4 wires are only 2 suppose to have power? Also I pulled the bulb and have no power going to the brake lights. Could it be a ground?

Thanks in advance all!

Correction. I have no directionals at all! Hazards work in the front but not in the rear.

I got it. Guess that is what happens when you try to work on your Jeep at 530 in the morning. It was where the trailer harness was wired in. Removed that and connected the original wires and they all work now!
