Question about 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix
No brake lights. The brake light in the back window works but not the two rear lights. I have tail lights and signal lights. Was told there is a switch in the steering column that was bad, Is this true. This switch is expensive 400 to 500 dollars so told by the mechanic. I was also told there is a switch behind the brake pedal. This sounds more realistic to me but I am not a mechanic. Can you set me straight.
I have the same problem and it is the switch... I ran a wire from my back window light to my brake lights and it works great. saved 600.00 bucks and only took 20 min Danny

If the bulbs are OK then yes it is the turn signal switch, the brake lites run through that switch, the hi mount third brake light doesn't, this is a common problem on late GM trucks and cars. I looked this switch up here is the part number.
