If your other brake lights work, it has to be a problem with the wiring.

Where the wiring comes out of the car body to the rear boot door.check that its not broken.usually with opening and closing of doors where there is wires coming out of the car body to doors can cause them to fracture.

Why are trailer LED running lights too bright? 2005 Jeep/2007 Harley. FIXED!! :)


brake lamps and parks are swapped
brakes are the high current lamps and much brighter.
you have them backwards.
AH ! LED lamps
and you really mean
the brake are too dim,,and parks are too bright.
and what is it not.?
it's not the jeep putting out too much voltage to TAILS. sorry its 13.3v to 15v running, on all cars.

what is it.?
well the lamps for tails/blinks are low power LED lamps. (like there relic cousins)
and brakes are higher intensity LED lamps (by LAW)
same with incandescent, (LED dont change DOT laws on candle power, sorry)

1998 chrysler town &country brake lights dont work but the 3rd one does


do your dash lights go out too? .. corroded wires (you can do an insulation breakdown test), or its grounding out in the console, but that would most likely blow the fuse. check to make sure u r looking at the right fuse too, wires can be connected to other random components, for example you may find your horn doesnt work either. and being as you have 3 brake lights, it may be possible they are on 2 diff fuses

hope this helps some!

I have A 2001 accord coup.The two main brake not working #rd dose


Here I assume that by refering to the 3rd light which means the one in the middle works fine.If this is so then it means that your brake switch located near the pedal are working perfectly here..So next thing you need is a meter and read the voltage reading at the connection point of the wiring to both indicators or brake light connection.Hopes this gives you an idea what to do.Good luck

My cruise control doesnt work on my 2004 f150


Is the switch on the end of the brake master cylinder good? There has been a recall for these I think. Check all fuses? Make sure brake lights operate normally.

Can I wire extra lights into the 3rd brake light?


Thats alot of work that you could just put into fixing the lights.

This might sound dumb, but make sure your tailights have the right biulbs in them.

If all is good there, then check or have checked the actual sockets for the bulbs.

I bet thats where your problem is.

The brake lights my 2000 Chevy Blaser do not work, the turn lights work and the running lights work and the brake light on top of the blazer is working


We bought a 2000 Blazer in '02 and one day I noticed there were no brake lights, but the 3rd light on top worked fine. I did some research online and found out there was a recall on this problem due to the hazard switch on the column. I also found out if I wiggled the hazard switch a certain way, the brake lights worked. I was able to get by for awhile by wedging a 'widget' beside the hazard switch button and the hole in the column cover. This worked fine until someone would knock the widget out of place.
I finally got around to having the switch replaced at a local dealer. All was fine until last week when I was told the brake lights were out again and I found out my hazard lights didn't work either. I changed out the switch assembly myself this time, and once I had it out I saw what happened. The brake light voltage comes in to the assembly on a white wire, and the first contact this goes through is on the hazard switch. In my case the contact had obviously overheated from the brake light current and melted the plastic holding the contact in place, thus breaking the circuit to the brakes. Either a poor design or too much current for the circuit to handle.
Soooooo now I am in the process of replacing the four bulbs in the tail/brake light assembly with 3 watt Luxeon LED plug-in replacements. The current draw of the original bulbs was measured at 2.2 amps at 13.8 volts, times 4 bulbs makes about 8.8 amps that goes through the contact in the hazard switch whenever the brakes are stomped. The LED replacements draw .2 amp each, so times 4 will be .8 amp or less than 1/10th of the original equipment bulbs. These LED bulbs in my opinion are as bright or brighter than the original equipment and hopefully will help from burning out another switch assembly.. David
