No brake lights

I have changed all the bulbs, checked all the fuses, fluid levels and trees. They still don't work. What could it be!

Brake light switch may be bad or mis-adjusted.

How do i fix the brake lights on my mercury sable. all the other lights work fine


Does your car have the `lamp out'indicator system? It's more complicated.
My manual shows fuse #28 , a 15 amp fuse powers the brake bulbs.Is this the one you changed?
A bulb can be out for a long time and you don't notice it,then the other burns out and you think they both went out at the same time,but they might not have,see?
So check the bulbs and make sure you got that brake switch installed correctly. don-ohio (:^)

Brake lights won't turn off even with fuse out


the circuit is shorted to the bulbs somewhere in the wires there is a short causing power to bypass the fuse and constantly run to the bulbs

I don't believe there is a separate fuse for the high-mount brake light. Never was on older cars, that brake light is just spliced into the rear brake lights. Have you checked the bulb?

A light like a small light bulb light up when the brakes are push


a warning light like that is normally one of 3 things. all fairly easy to sort out,
1.
blown bulb on brake lights. check and replace bulbs as needed.

2.
low brake fluid level in reservour. check fluid in reservour is up to the maximum mark/line and fill if needed.

3.
the brake pads have worn down to the minimum thickness and need changing.

Camry CE 2001: Changed the brake light in the


hi the rear high level brake warning light in rear screen ? works with the other two brake lights at same time when you press brake pedal with ignition on ? so may i suggest you check the other brake lights are working ? if not ? check these bulbs? reason being that from the symptoms you describe that high level light is staying on ? it would suggest that the brake light switch at the pedal is not operating ie not putting brake lights off when pedal is off and would suspect the brake lights have been on for some time and burned bulbs out due to the brakelight element in bulbs are high wattage if you check on what i have suggested? and is the case ? come back and will advise you how to adjust brake switch easy diy hope this helps? best wishes from the uk
