    My driver's side brake light does not work, but the directional signals all work. My repair shop said I needed a new light switch assembly for over $200.00. for just the part. That seems awfully expensive to get a light working again.

    Have you checked the wireing from the switch under the dash above the break pedal?

There should be a switch attached to the break pedal support bracket that is activated when the break pedal is depressed(even ever so slightly). It is a make/break cercuit that is activited when the break pedal is depressed ever so slightly... this is the reason why in traffick one might see someone "on his breaks" with his brakes on (LIGHTS ARE LIT) but he isn't slowing down because he is just letting his foot ride on the pedal. Some times when cleaning out the vehicle, removeing matts or reaching under the dash or trying to fix something else the wires may become detached by accident when an arm is pulled back in a cramped condition. The switch is small and is usually a small button that is kept from closing the circuit when the brake pedal is untoutched.... but move it slightly and the button is nolonger toutching the pedal arm and the circuit is allowed to close and the lights go on. The switch is sometimes located in a light sheetmetal bracket that allows it to be adjusted by pushing the switch close to the pedalarm or linkage when it is in the relaxed (or untoutched position).

Which fuse is for the brake lights on a 2000 olds bravada? how is it labeled?

During stoplamp operation, power is supplied from the STOP LP fuse in the underhood fuse block through CKT 1540 (ORN) to the TCC/stop lamp switch. When the brake is depressed, the contacts of the TCC/stop lamp switch close, routing power to CKT 17 (WHT). CKT 17 supplies power to both the VECHMSL fuse and the stop switch contact of the hazard switch. From the VECHMSL fuse, current flows through CKT 1320 (LT BLU) to the high mount stoplamp and high mount stoplamp resistor. The ground is provided by G450 through CKT 1350 (BLK). From the stop switch contacts of the hazard switch, current flows through the turn signal switch to CKT 1418 (YEL/BLK) and CKT 1419 (DK GRN/WHT). CKT 1418 (YEL/BLK) supplies power to the LT TRN (rear) fuse (which feeds the LH rear park and turn signal lamp terminal A) through CKT 618 (YEL). Ground is provided by CKT 1350 (BLK) to G450. CKT 1419 (GRN/WHT) supplies power to the RT TRN (rear) fuse (which feeds the RH rear park and turn signal lamp terminal A) through CKT 619 (DK GRN). Ground is provided by CKT 1350 (BLK) to G450. When the left or right turn signal is turned ON, the appropriate turn signal will flash. The opposite side will remain ON in order to serve as a stoplamp when the brakes are applied.

My96 olds. Bravada blinkers wont work, when i turn on either blinker all 3 brake lights in back blink on and off (like emergencey flashers are on)I replaced both flashers andhave no burned out bulbs

You are going to have to register on BBB INDUSTRIES
FREE Documentation site...

because... These are REAL GM drawings &
Technical Service Bulletins... (TSBs).

Get onto your SIGNAL/BRAKE Schematic Drawing
and figure out where your "SHORT" (cross-over) is

This is where the REAL technicians use tone tracers...
and open circuits to halves (50, 50) to isolate FAULTED CIRCUITS.

If you don't "open" the circuits... the tone will travel
everywhere... or no where.

97 Olds Bravada My brake & hazard lights don't

There are TSB's for this issue. I chased this issue for months on mine. Go find the TSB's, there's troubleshooting pointing out the faulty part. It could be, the brake light switch, the hazzard light switch itself, the multi-function switch. I had replaced all of these and still had the problem. Wiring that goes from the brake switch to up near the fender was shorting against the fender. I replaced the pigtail, problem fixed. Best bet to help you, is find the TSB's for this problem.

Abs brake light coming on.

Your Antilock Brake System (ABS) has a problem. The ABS will not work at all as long as the light is on. A common problem is a bad Front Wheel Speed Sensor. This system also uses the signal from the Vehicle Speed Sensor that is mounted in either the differential or the transfer case, depending on if you have 4 wheel drive. There are many other things that can cause this light to come on, but these are the most common. You will need to have your Electronic Brake Control Module (EBCM) scanned to find out why it has turned the light on.

Main brake lights not working, third light works, turn signals work, all fuses are good, what could be the problem? 02 Olds Bravada.

Most likley the brake light switch. It has 2 different sides. One for the third brake light and one for the lower brake lights. It is inexpensive and can be changed easily. Good Luck
