1991 Lexus ES250 Rear Brake Lights

In my 1991 Lexus es250, my rear brake lights do not work. I have checked the fuse and it is fine. The bulbs are new. I could not locate the module under the dashboard by the driver seat. (Next to the hood opener button). Can anyone tell me what to look for next? I do not want to spend much money and i also do not want to replace the harness. Thanks in advance!

First of all the brake lights are always in the rear only!!. take the light bulb out and while some one is appling the brake pedal check to see if yo have power at only one terminal of the socket, then release the brake pedal and make sure yu dont have power at the same terminal , now if you had poer in one of the terminal then you have to replace the socket for the brake light bulbs.

look under the dash board right at the brake pedal switc where the brake light switch is located and make sure that the wires are not broken, you can also do a quick check by just disconnecting the brake light seitch and then jump the terminal off of the brake switch and you should have light if the light works this way then you have to replace the brake light seitch

Have you probed the tail/brake lamp socket to see if power is there or you just assume it is? also make sure the ground is good for the brake lights Do that if not done already and let me know.

Replaced the brake light switch completely, but as soon I hit the brake pedal, the brake light warning light comes on again indicating that there is a light out in the rear. But all the lights are working,...


If this is a newer lexus, then its very clever. It WILL be a blown bulb, but when a bulb is out, the car lights the next nearset bulb to substitute. Have a closer look at the rear lights and check all the bulb filaments by eye.

1991 Montero and the brake lights and rear turn signals will not work. Do I need to replace a certain harness?


Check the bulbs, sockets and fuse first. Most brake lights and rear turn signals are the same bulb and or element in the bulb, so that is where I would look first. Sometimes moisture can get into the light sockets and wreak havoc, so look for corrosion too.

Check the brake light switch under the dash near the top of the brake pedal, the button might be stuck in, or the switch is bad.

Left rear brake light stopped working but bulb and fuses are OK.


These are Dual Function Bulbs. They control the Parking Lights and the Brake Lights. This Bulb is Burnt out on the Brake Coil inside the Bulb. I have actually seen Bulbs that were Bad But you could not Tell by jast looking at them. It should be fine with a New Bulb. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Left and right brake light doesn't work but center lights does


check behind the brake peadle for a little button that pushes in and out when the peadle is pressed(this is your brake light switch) some cars have more than one of theese. manualy let the button out if the light works the switch is good if it does not disconect the harness from the switch and take a small piece of wire and jump the two prongs on the harness if the brake lights come on then you need a brake light switch. if this doesnt work check for power at the switch. if no power you have a bad fuse if there is power and you already jumped the wires to the switch then you have a broken wire between the switch and the tail lights.
