Question about 1986 Saab 9000

Brake lights don't work

All 3 brake lights don't work in my 86 Saab 9000. I have checked the fuse and the bulbs - all work. Could it be a faulty ground wire or brake switch? If so, where do I look and how do I fix?

It could be a faulty brake switch.

it is located at the brake pedal. the brake pedal itself is the one pushing the brake switch to turn it off. it is a normally closed switch.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Check your fuses, even fuses not associated with lighting. If all ok it is probably the muti-funtion switch on the steering column, It is the switch that your turn signal lever connects to.

My break lights aren't working and its not the fuses


Check the bulbs and brake light switch.Switch should be around the pedal area unless it is fitted with a remote rod , then just follow the rod to where it goes through the firewall.

My brake lights don't work and it's not the fuse. I don't know how long they have been off. I got pulled over and i was told they didn't work


first get a 12-volt tester and test the socket if the sockets are good check the brake light switch on top of the brake pedal itself and check all of the fuses too.

If there is no brake lite switch on the arm of the brake pedal then look to see if there are two wires hanging down with a plug on them, as perhaps the previous owner removed the brake lite switch with the intentions of replacing it and just never got around to it.

Rear lights


Check the lighting fuses, if these are ok you have an open circuit somewhere. You will need to check it out using some kind of circuit tester to find the fault.
