Ok disreguard my other answer, you have ot remove the positive battery cable when pluggin in the new circuit board, or it will cause a default in the computer system, so remove the positive battery cable and plug the circuit board back in, you should not have a problem then.

Left brake lights may have short in wire ( not working)


Not a short, or both brake lights would not work. I suggest you have a defective bulb socket or bad socket ground, check the ground at the socket.

2002 Chevy Malibu. Left side brake lights not working. Brake lights come on when car is started, so I know that (new) bulbs are fine. Any ideas? Right side lights are fine.


the socket (or board) that the bulbs are on are known to go bad. its actually a common repair. the lights coming on when vehicle is running is just a parking light not the brake light. you either installed the wrong bulb(needs to be a double filament) or the board is no good. Good luck

Right break light is not working on my 2000 malibu. Switch light bulb but break light does not work. Turn signal works and hazards work..


is it both lights? If yes, check 15 amp stop light fuse first. If good, check brake switch above pedal.

If only one brake light isn't working, you have a broken wire. See diagram below to trace wires.

Tail lights do not work all lights work but the back lights do not work. I change the fuse but lights still don't come on. all the other lights work is there other fuses i need to replace


if the bulbs are ok! check bulb socket to see if you have power.with test light, if not make sure sockets are clean. check the bulbs first, because they are a double filiment bulb. for brakes and tail lights. did you change the correct fuse!! it is located in interior fuse box on drivers side end of dash. its on bottom left side of fuse box. its labled "stp lps". hope this helps,

I just bought NEW bulb for brake light


There aren't separate fuses for the left and right brake lights. So if one side is working and the other isn't you can rule out a fuse. Was the bulb socket corroded at all? Check for power and grounds at the socket by back probing the wires (of course, while having the brakes applied). If you have a good power and ground at the wires, the problem lies in the socket assembly. Should be available from the dealer for about $30 or so. It's also not out of the question to have a bad bulb out of the box. It's rare but just to rule it out, try it in the socket that works.

Good luck.

2004 ford focus brake lights on when side lights on


This problem sounds like a short in the lighting system. Since the side lights get brighter when you press the brake pedal, you have power crossing from the brake wire to the marker wire. Try removing the left rear brake bulb and se if the problem continues. If it does, reinstall the left bulb and try removing the brake bulb on the other side and see if that fixes the problem. If the problem persists examin the wires closely for broken insulation.
