Question about 1995 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
I have a 1995 Chevy Monte Carlo, the brake lights are not working at all when pressing on the brakes.
I changed the bulbs and changed the brake switch. It still not working. Checked the fuse and it seems fine but did not change it to a new one.
Can you please advise on what I should do ...
Hello all; I figured out this one; it is indeed the turn signal switch. There are plastic tabs that hold the whole assembly together under constant friction when you use the turn signal. They eventually wear out. I was able to fix mine on my own. I had to take the air bag out and everything! The easy way to figure this out is to take out one of the brake lights from it's mount, lay it in the trunk connected and fold the seat down, so you can look back and see it go on as you pull the turn signal lever slightly towards so and step on the brake. That's how you know it's your turn signal control. you can either replace the control or fix it with washers and lithium grease like I did. It wasn't really hard. I used the Haynes manual and bought a stearing wheel puller. Still cheaper than the dealer or repair shop. I paid $60 overall.

I had to replace the turn signal switch on mine as well. Not cheap if you take it to a garage.

I had the same problem and I had to replace my turn signal switch. Have someone watch your lights as you press your brakes and wiggle your turn signal switch.

Check all the other lights as well. It could be another bulb out on the car. If the lights are wire in series a bad light on the front of the car can affect a light on the rear.
