I had the same problem when I changed my bulbs before. A fuse had blown and caused the bulbs to not function. The fuses for the brake lights should be inside the car on the drivers side (depending on the model some may be on the passenger side). If you don't see a fuse listed inside the car then it may be under the hood in the fuse box there. Pull any fuses out that are listed for brake lights or equivalent and inspect them. Inside the fuse which is plastic you should see a continuous metal circuit, if the fuse is blown it will be obvious, there will be a break in the metal circuit. Replace the fuse with a new one making sure that you put the same exact same amperage back in. If it has a 10 stamped on the top of it make sure you put a 10 amp fuse back in. They are color coded as well to help simplify it.

IF YOU ALREADY CHANGED THE BULBS THE PROBLEM IS PROBABLE A BRAKE SENSOR SWITCH UNDER THE DASH LOCATED ON THE BACKSIDE OF THE BRAKE PEDAL LEVER IF THIS DOES NOT THEN CHECK YOUR FUSE BOXES

Brake lights do not light up when peddle is pressed. bulbs have been changed and, fuses are good


If the high mount light works, and you know the bulbs are good, the problem is probably in the turn signal switch.

Regular lights work but when u press brake only passenger brake light goes on, i changed the brake bulb which was bad but still no brake light when pushing brake on driver side


sounds like you have a short in the drivers side brake light. it may be due to corrosion in the bulb inlet.try cleaning the bulb socket itself with wd40 or add bulb grease to the bulb. you may have a broken wire to it also.check with a test light to confirm you have power to the bulb when brakes applied,this will take 2 people 1 to press brakes and1 to check for current with a test light at the tail light itself. you may only have corrosion in the brake light bulb socket,so,,do this 1st. with lights off,, remove the bulb on driversside, add a little bulb grease to your bulb,insert it into the bulb socket,and then remove the bulb again,do this 3 times,make sure the bulbs getting connection. then apply the brakes and see if the light comes on. thank you for choosing fixya.com

When i press brake pedal driver side brake light quits working but other wise it works fine?


That has a double filament bulb in it. One is for the tail light and the other for the brake and maybe the turn signal. If your turn signal flashes the tail light and not an individual turn signal bulb it will behave the same way. The way it works is that the tail light filament goes off and the brighter brake light filament comes on. The brake light half of the bulb is out. If you change it, change the passenger side too, it will do the same shortly if you leave it in. They tend to go bad in pairs. Good luck.

My brake lights stop working . So I replacd yhe light bulb but the brake light still don't work.


I know what it is. I have the same problem. Try, when pressing the break, pulling your turning signal lever towards yourself, but not all the way to turn on the brights. If your breaks light up then you need a new turn signal switch. Part of the switch disables the break lights when that flasher comes on, but when it goes bad, it wont let the lights com on at all.

Brake lights


do you have a 3rd brake light like on that is on the roof or in the rear window? if so does it work?
the brake lights are usually a 2way bulb so just because the lights work doesn't mean that brake lights will. if the 3rd brake light works replace the brake light bulbs if none of them work including your 3 brake light. check into having your brake switch changed. that is the switch under the brake pedal. when it is pressed the brake lights come on and when released they go off. if the bulbs do not fix the problem than try the switch.
