98 gmc sierra 1500 cargo light not working? Brake lights work though

I bought this truck used and every bulb that could be burnt out or not replaced needed replacing. Truck has 140,000 on it but it is clean all around. Only problem I have not been able to figure out is that the cargo light on the cab all the bulbs were not working so I just bought new ones. Well that fixed the break lights up there but the cargo lights still do not light? No blown fuse that I can figure. Light casing was cracked and water might have gotten in there but have nothing to swap out to try something else.

Any Idea's

If water got in there ,there is a good chance that the socket itself is coroded and your not getting a good ground. i would check that out and it's a good bet that you have to replace the socket. please rate this....thanks

95 gmc c1500 third brake lite works but cargo won't


The cargo light will only work if the lights in the cab are on. Turn them on then flip the switch for the cargo light and it should come on, if not then it is probably an electrical problem.

The 3rd/high brake light is not working .. replace light bulb with a new bulb. nothing happened. checked to see if fuse is good couldnt find it.. besides the fuse what could be the problem.. 2001 gmc...


Brake light switch. If I remember correctly, the third brake light works off a seperate circuit from the other brake lights so part of the switch could be bad.

2007 GMC Sierra 1500 My high brake light not working,checked bulbs and fuses,there good.What should i look for now?


check for power to the brake assembly. the socket board in high mounts are prone to have problems. if you have power to the socket board then it needs replaced.

I have a 1989 gmc 1500 and cant get the brake lights to work i bought a new switch and they still dont work. also i got new bulbs my taillights work but the brake lights do not.


First I would check the fuses. You may have two fuse boxes. One inside and one under the hood. You can check for voltage on both sides of the brake switch to verify proper operation. That's where I would start.

My tail lights dont work or break lights but when i depress the break pedle my cargo break light works...i drive a 02 GMC serrira....my hazards, turn signals, and back up lights work


It sounds like you have burnt out bulbs. All those other lights that you say work are all different bulbs. The tail light bulbs have dual filament so that they can perform the tail light and brake light function. You should change out your bulbs and that will probably solve your problem.

My two tail lights both work, and the third brake light works, but the two backup lights in it are not working. i replaced both bulbs but it still will not work. is there a fuse i need to replace, or is it...


if the two lights your talking about are in the 3rd brk light assembly, those are not reverse lights they are cargo compartment lights ...... the reverse lights are in the brake light assemblies- if they dont work replace the rev light sw on the tranny

Brake lights quit working.


if all fuses and bulbs are ok get to the brake switch and see ifits stiff or stuck, if it just has two wires on it you could join themtogether to see if the brake lights come on though obviuosly dont leave them joined.Good luck davelee
