That should be an LED light assmebly. There shouldbe two screws holding it in place. Remove the screws and pull out the lens. There will be a two wire connector. Make sure there is power on one wire when the brake pedal is pressed. Make sure the other wire has a good ground. If both of those are good than the lens will need to be replaced. They $80 to $100 dollars. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

SOURCE: My brake lights dont work on my 2001 chevy blazer.

A very common issue with these is the multfunction/turn signal switch in the steering column.GM has a recall on this problem you should contact your local dealership have your VIN number to see if your vehicle is included in the campaign. If so the repair should be minimal cost or no charge to you at all.

Cruise control and rear hatch doesn't work, also rear brake lights staying on when driving, would this be a stoplight switch failure?


yes. The CC uses the signal from the brake light switch to operate. Rear hatch? sounds unrelated unless you are referring to the 3rd brake light. Depending on your car there may be a rubber or plastic button the brake arm rests against when not being pressed. This may have broken or fallen off.

I need to change the brake light but can't figure out how to get the cover off and it is not in the manual. Do you know how to get to the bulb to change it?


Most 3rd brake light covers are held on with 2 plastic screws located on the sides, or the cover is just a push fit, easily pried off with a thin blade such as a putty knife screw drivers sceatch it up badly

How do I replace the LED third brake light on a 2001 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer?


there are 2 set screws in the ends of the light, remove these 2 screws, open hatch and look where the wire runs pull rubber grommet seal and disconnect wire at connector, careful that other end does not pull back in, i tie string on it before disconnecting so i cant loose connector inside. then close hatch and carefully pull up 3rd light (it is held by double sided sticky tape) clean surface with wd40 and then windex to remove goo from old tape put wire through on new 3rd light and connect wires, peal covers off sticky tape align press down and replace screws. suggest ordering 3rd light from internet it is lot cheaper than GM

the lock is probably gummed up. you may have to have someone push lightly on the glass while pushing the latch switch to make it move. if not then you can remove the back panel and actuate the latch manually by pulling on the cable. then clean it with brake cleaner and lubricate with graphite.
