Breaklights dont turn on to my 97 oldsmobile cutlass supreme

Hi, first check the 15 amp Stop Light Fuse. If that is good, pull the connector off the stop light switch above the brake pedal and connect the orange and light blue wires using a paper clip in the end of the connector. If you can get the lights to come on with this paper clip, replace the stoplight switch. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

No brake lights

If the fuses are ok, replace the brake light switch on the back side of the brake pedal. You can test it by disconnecting the plug from the switch and use a jumper wire or paper clip between posts on the plug, lights come on, bad switch.

No brake lights need to replace brake light switch

Its on the top of the brake pedal. Unplug the connector and check for 12 volts firstif you have a multimeter set it 20 DC volts you should get 12 at connector. If thats good set the meter to OHMS low scale take jumper leads connect to switch terminals aliagator clips then clip to the probes on the meter and push the brake pedal the reading should change if the switch is good from open when depressed to closed when no force applyed to the brake pedal. If there is no change then the switch needs to be replaced. Remove the clip from the pin that slides through the pedal and the switch slide out the pin install new switch reconnect the connector slide pin back in and install the clip. check to see if brake lights work

Brake lights dont work

Check the brake light switch, it is down on the brake pedal lever, you can dis-connect the wire connector at the brake light switch and check for broken wires at the connector, and then jumper the connector with a paper clip, if the brake lights come on then replace your brake light switch.

There might be more than one switch attached to the brake light pedal lever, the brake light switch usually only has two wires going to it when there are two switches.

If there is no problem with the brake light switch then you can suspect the turn-signal switch to be at fault, as all of the running lights, turn-signals, brake lights, and hazard lights are all ran through the turn-signal switch. You can also try stepping on the brake pedal and wiggle around the turn-signal switch and see if the brake lights flicker or come on.
