One of two things cause this corroded or poor chassis earth at the bulb holders or the circuit board that holds the bulb is faulty.

I have 97 suburban that i changed the brake switch but the brake lights work intermintten what else could be the problom


this one is tricky. I know that gmc had a problem with the hazard button dropping out the brake lights except for the third light. There was a recall so you may be in luck if it includes your vehicle, or it maybe switch that detects the brake being depressed. I had that problem w/1999 Jimmy and my cheap fix was to jump each side off the third brake light. I used the top bulb in assembly and disconnected the wire that feeds the brake light but left running light wire on. Havent had a problem since.

Is there an adjustment for the stop light switch on a 99 GMC Yukon. I have replace it and my brake lights still do not work. Park lights work fine.


There is no adjustment. The park lights are on a different circuit than the brake lights.
Do you have a third brake light that works. Its also on a different circuit but works from the same switch. Do your turn signals work. They use the same filament as the brake lights.
Also, the brake light circuit goes through the multi function (turn signal) switch.

Since the brake lights and turn signal lights use the same filament in the bulbs, the brake light circuit will pass through the turn signal switch. When a turn signal is used it cancels out the brake light for that side.

Let me know if your third brake light and turn signals work in the rear.
Also, if youy have not already, check/change the bulbs. The type of sockets those lights are in also get burned so look at them well.

I have a 1995 GMC Sierra an the third eye brake light comes on but the other brake light dont work


Could be both bulbs have burned out at once. Or could be the brake light switch. The third brake light and the normal brake lights operate seperatly. Or could be the wires.
