Question about Kia Sorento LX

1 Answer

All of my brake lights are out, including the thrid one. We had all of the fuses checked and they are okay. We brought a new brake light switch and that is not the problem. We don't know what else to check or what could be the problem. The vehicle is a 2003 Kia Sorento LX. Please help.

If your dashboard lights are also not working, try to switch the 30 amp relay with the air condition 30 amp relay, they are the same type of relay. Plug that in, make sure it is the correct direction. Then try your tail lights. If that doesn't work, use a volt/amp ready on the relay slots themselves to see if you get power to that slot.

I have a 2010 chewvy malibu and the thrid brake light comes on. but not the actual taillight portion of the brake lights. checked the fuses. does any one have a wiring diagram for this vehicle.


That is usually an indication of a bad turn signal switch. The lower 2 lights pass through it first so the turn signals can cancel the brake light as they share the same circuit.

My break lights dont work.fuzes and bulbs are ok ?


For starters it is spelled "Brake" light...LOL . Sounbds like you may have a brake light switch that has gone out. In yor owners manual does it show more than one fuse for the brake lights? Most vehicles with a thrid/highmount brake light split the brake light power to either the left and third brake light and the right brake light or vice versa, or posibble 3rd brake light on its own fuse. I would check if all of the brake light including the 3rd brake light dont work. If no lights work at all it leans toward the switch which controls all or them to activate hence the brake light switch. It should be mounted on your brake peal arm or to the main base. The pedal lever activate the switch when you depress the brake pedal.

Brake light s not working but third light does. and flashers work


Does the 3rd brake light turn off & on with the stomp of the brake pedal?Do the normal running light work?Their is more then one location for fuses for this vehicle.. did you check them all?One is located in the engine compartment far as I know it does not have a separate fuse for rear brake lights.The second one is of course under the dash.The thrid is a rear power distribution box located near the spare tire... btw other fuses could cause this issue like towing light fuse possibly.. so make sure you check them all. Of course start with brake lights first.

I have a 91 ford f150 and the brake lights wont work and the rear right blinker is dim. Can you help me?


Check System Fuse - A fuse is used to protect the brake light circuit from amperage overload. If the fuse has failed it will not allow the electrical current to continue to the brake lights. To check the fuse, first locate the brake light system fuse in the fuse panel which is either under the dash or under the hood in the power distribution center. Connect the test light to a ground like an engine or dash bracket and turn the ignition key to the "on" position. Using the test light probe both sides of the fuse. If the test light illuminates on both sides the fuse is okay continue onto the next step. If one side of the fuse illuminates the fuse has failed and needs to be replaced. If the fuse fails as soon as it is replaced or when you apply the brake pedal the brake light electrical circuit is shorted to ground. Rarely a system short can occur, a car repair manual is needed to find the wiring schematic for the brake light circuit. Once the brake light wiring has been located inspect and repair as needed.

Check Brake Light Bulbs - All cars have three brake light bulbs that create the brake light illumination affect. If all of these brake light bulbs fail no brake light operation will occur. I know what you're thinking, you might say all three brake lights at once? But in reality one brake light went out at a time and you did not notice. People only tend to notice something when they almost run into the back of your car to help persuade them to inform you the brake lights aren't working. Remove any of the brake light bulbs to confirm the bulb is okay or burned. After the bulb has been removed inspect the filament and replace if failed. If the brake light bulbs are okay continue to the next step.

Checking the Brake Light Switch - A control switch is used to connect the brake light electrical circuit. This switch is located near the brake pedal lever. Basic switches have just two wires, power in and power out to the turn signal switch. Use a test light that is grounded and with the key in the "on" position test for power at one side (wire) of the switch, then press the brake pedal while testing the opposite side (wire). It should illuminate the test light, if electrical power is connected through the switch go to the next step. If no power is detected through the switch the brake light switch has failed and replacement is required. If your car is equipped with more than two wires integrated into the brake light switch a car repair manual is needed to locate the proper brake light circuit wiring.

Internal to many GM brake light switches are two circuits. Have you tried the switch at the petal?

2002 Chevy Suburban Break Lights are out, fuses are okay.


Check the brake light switch at the brake pedal, try and activate it by hand, if still no brake lights, would recommend replacing this switch. Hope this helps.
