If none of the bake lights work than start by checking the brake light fuse. If it is good than check the brake switch located under the drivers side of the dash and near the brake pedal lever. There should be power in all the time and power out when the pedal is pressed. If that checks out it is entirely possible that all three of the bulbs are burnt out. So it wouldn't hurt to check them as well. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

Warnimg brake light


What does the owners manual say the light is for ?

It won't go off until you diagnose & resolve or
repair why it is on.

When you ask a question we need lots of detail

We can't answer every question when a light comes
on & you don't provide a vehicle,engine & all the details
in the manual about the light & the vehicles driveability issues

When I turn my lights on my tail lights work but when I hit my brakes the don't light up I have a 2001 vw beetle????


the brake lights don't light up or the taillights don't light up? the brake lights are brighter than the tailights so the tailights won't show up whenbrakes are applied. if no lights work when brakes are applied then check for a bad ground at the light assembly.

My ABS/Brake light in dashboard is on .


I didn't have that issue,but I had a 1992 dakota with
rear abs only & I just unplugged the module under the dash

I'm all for diagnosing everything & having it factory stock & working

But you don't need abs on a 4x4 that old & the rear hydraulic
abs unit ,gets so rusty that it is sad.

If you ever replace rusted brake tubing, remove it

They don't check that in inspection

Is it not obvious to you, that you have a possible
system malfunction in the ABS Braking System?

The light is on & you should be giving us what ever
codes you have,if you have a question.

Any light on the dash of any vehicle,you need to have it
checked out ,diagnosed & repaired in a few days, or don't
continue to use any vehicle with problems.

And don't clear the light,you need the codes to find
out where to start on solving the issues

I have a 1996 dakota with no tail lights. The brake lights work. I think it may be a fuse, but I don't have a manual to see what fuse it may be,????


Why would it be a fuse?
You have front parking lights? Then no fuse

If it was a fuse ---would that fix it -- NO it wouldn't
Why do fuses blow?

Have you even removed the tail light housing & checked the bulbs,
or checked the sockets for ground or under truck for wiring
harness issues?

Don't need a manual to check all fuses under the dash &
in the box near brake booster

My ABS and TC lights are both on. The first came on and I figured my brakes needed changed, however after the change, they both still come on, and my brake pedal rubs, like it won't stop.


Nothing to do with brake rotors/pads etc

You have an ABS Braking System Malfunction
that needs to be resolved

The abs controller is doing odd things & it
really isn't that safe to use right now

Try a local repair shop

Have them check the codes & only
diagnose & repair the abs issue,
don't need a dog & pony show on other items

Have them prove they can do one job at a time
