Brake lights on 306 TDi not working, bulbs and fuses ok

Was driving tonight and heard a clicking noise coming from area around the fusebox. When stopped it appeared I had no brake lights. All the Fuses are fine. Could it be relay problem or the microswitch?

    Thanks for that will pass it on to my mate whos gonna take a look see tomorrow

    Well it appears the brake lights weren't the clicking problem. They weren't working but that was the micro switch so god knows how long they had been out for!

    The clicking was cause by the head light connection on the indiator "Stick", so we're now trying to source one and hoping it doens't involve removing the steering wheel!

    Thanks for that. Unfortunately couldn't source the part up here and my mate wasn't keen on removing the wheel as it's got an airbag on it. Have managed to work out the clips so I have lights to drive and am taking it down south to my folks and they are getting it fixed next week

    The help has been much appreciated, thanks again!

    hi if i remember right it is a complete switch if it is the steering will have to come off but its not that big a prooblem once you get the cover off the steering wheel and see the retaining nut undo as far as you can without taking the nut off completely your supose to use a puller but if you grab hold of the steering wheel at qaurter two and quarter past and pull evenly as hard as you can just rocking the wheel side to side while pulling it should come off the nut left on is so it doesn,t hit you when it comes off best of luck paul

Clicking noise brake pedal

It possibly is the brake light switch, this is mounted on the top of the brake pedal, check the brake lights are working? The switch is not normally loud enough to hear? Check the area around the brake pedal, make sure things like heater air pipes are secure and away from the pedal. If the brakes are ok and the brake lights are working, it has to be something fouling the pedal.

2006 Chevy Trailblazer...the top "third"

Brake light problem - if bulbs and fuses (#34 and #43 in rear fuse panel) are good, then only other possibility are the circuit boards where all the tail lights are located.

Noise coming from rear is the mode control actuator in the rear HVAC unit, it is trying to move a stuck blend door.
