97 blazer rear light problem

HI Guys, Both tail lights have stopped working on my 97 blazer. The number plate light and high level light no problem. The brake lights work but stop working when the head/side lights are switched on. All bulbs ok. I'm led to believe it might be the multifunction switch on the steering column? Any help would be really appreciated.

The 3rd tail light on an 96 Concord. Where is that located?


You do have a high level stop lamp. Don't believe I've ever heard of a high level or 3rd tail lamp? Start the vehicle, in park, parking brake set. Turn on your headlamps, look at rear tail lamps, anything out?

I have a 97 suzuki sidekick and tailights work on and off right side works then stops working then left side works and licence plate light doesnt work at all i believe its a ground but dont know where to...


ok the full wiring is online, need that, a real FSM? for 1996 , same as 97
but not same 4sp tranny. i got confused, but seems the tail(parking) lamps are dead. you turn the Head lamps 1 click and some lights are dead.
there are a huge number if lamps in this circuit. Front and rear corners, all side lights x4, and dash maps, cig, lamp , ash tray lamp. radio lamp. shifter lamp (A/T) . and lic. plate.
for sure its wiring, if any lamp gloes, fully the HL (head light ) switch is good. so the wiring is bad to those lamps. the left rear has the trailer connector behind left rear Tail lens. see that. is it molested?
inspecting all 4 corners of care usually reveals collision damage , and
wires never repaired. you can use a volt meter to find this easy, have one?

HOW TO WIRE BRAKE LIGHTS FROM THIRD LIGHT 97 MONTE CARLO


Instead of improvising, why not get the stop lamps working the way they should be. You must be getting power through 15A fuse 23 in the fuse block and the stop lamp switch, otherwise the high mounted stop lamps would not work. Stop lamp power is routed through the turn signal switch and is applied to the tail/turn/stop-lamps. That should solve your problem

2002 Chevy Blazer, rear brake lights do not work but the third light above the window does. Replaced bulbs and still not working I have the same problem got a fix it ticket the other.  Did you guys...


Trace the wiring as it comes from the laft and right brake light. May have to remove the brake light covers. Sounds like a crimped or shorted wire leading to the brake lights, possibly a loose or broken ground wire. One of the wires leading from the fuse block to the rear oif the vehicle could also have been damaged if the door sills have been removed by someone earlier to install things like speaker wires, etc. Also check to see if you have tail lights and directional signals.

When you replaced the bulbs did you get bulbs with double filiments - one acts as the tail lights, the other serves as the brake lights (both inside the same bulb). Compare the ID numbers on the bulbs with those which are required for this vehicle, but you should clearly see two different filiments inside of the bulbs when viewed from the side.
