Check all your grounds, fuses, just all the obvious things. If that doesn't solve it I think the third brake light is ran through your turn signal switch.

I would use a test light to see if you are getting any power back there at all first.

Have an audi a4 quattro 2005 convertible problem is 3rd brake light will stop working and than work again. i also get dash warning when it goes out. will replacing brake switch fix this. also 2nd issue...


The brake light issue isn't likely the the brake switch (since it sounds like your other brake lights are working properly). It's likely a bulb in the third brake light. When the filaments get old they sometimes lose and regain contact as the car vibrates on the road. Change the bilbs and see if the problem goes away. If it doesn't, look for a bad wire connection around the third brake light. Also, have someone verify the third brake light isn't working from the back of the car when you see the alert, it could be a bad sensor.

My fuse keeps blowing for brake lights golf v6 4motion please help


Sounds like you have a short or some bad wires. If everything is fine in regards to wires, connections, grounding, proper fuse size (sometimes you get the wrong fuse), and there are no shorts, I suggest running a voltmeter and checking the power through there. You should never be above 15 volts

2001 ford sports trac brake lights not working ,


This may be a simple fix, where the wheel jack or washer bottle is located in the back behind the panel, there should be connectors for the rear lights, it is possible that the plug has been dislodged, remove the panels and check the plug connections. Good luck.

99 JEEP BRAKE LIGHT WONT WORK..THIRD BRAKE LIGHT WORKS


on chrysler products the third brake light is run independant of the body control module, try checking the fuses that run the brake lights and see if any are faulty if not check you have voltage at the switch and a signal getting to the lights.

Centre brake light works but no outside lights


Hello,
From your very brief description I would purchase two replacement bulbs for the lights that aren't working, although you may have looked at them and they seem o.k. the filiaments on the brake light side are heavier than sidelight ones so if fused sometimes you can't see the break in them.
As your third brakelight is fully functional this is the reason I would be looking for replacement.
I hope this helps? please remember to appraise my FREE effort and press that Blue button if sorted, Thank You!

get a manuel from an auto parts store. in this manuel it will have etm(electrical troubleshooting manuel) it shows the brake lights and wires colors of wires. trace the wire color from the fuse using the diagram. purchase a test light from wal mart to see if your wire has power. if it does there may be a bad connection or component but hte etm shoud show you what components are on the circuit.any questions email me at jacobtaylor3@yahoo.com
