My 2003 Silverado was hit and the right rear lense was broken. I went to the local dealer and replaced the lense. Now all I have that works is the back up lights on both sides and blinkers. I have no brake lights on either side. I have running lights on the left and the licence plate light on the left and nothing else. Could this be a wiring harness problem?

Re: Brake lights not working
Sounds like you may have a harness cut on that side. did your lens come with a new harness? there is a junction block under truck where rear lights plug into. also check your fuses underhood and see if you see anty visual damage on harness

There was a recall on this, see your local Chevrolet dealer....

2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer
ON CERTAIN SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES, VIBRATION AND HEAT MAY CAUSE THE TAIL LAMP/STOP LAMP BULB TO LOOSEN IN ITS SOCKET. IF THIS OCCURS, THE BULB MAY FLICKER AND EVENTUALLY BECOME INOPERATIVE.
AN INOPERATIVE BRAKE LAMP WILL NOT CONVEY THE DRIVER'S INTENTION OF STOPPING TO DRIVERS IN FOLLOWING VEHICLES, AND AN INOPERATIVE REAR TURN SIGNAL LAMP WILL NOT CONVEY THE DRIVER'S INTENTION TO TURN TO DRIVERS IN FOLLOWING VEHICLES. BOTH OF THESE FAILURES CAN INCREASE THE RISK OF A CRASH.
DEALERS WILL INSPECT THE TAIL LAMP/STOP LAMP ASSEMBLIES, AND IF NECESSARY, REPLACE THEM. THE RECALL BEGAN ON NOVEMBER 22, 2004. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT CHEVROLET AT 1-800-630-2438, OLDSMOBILE AT 1-800-630-6537, BUICK AT 1-866-608-8080, OR GMC AT 1-866-996-9463.

These are not related issues. The problem is a really common one. Most likely the circuit board is bad. I sell about 4 a week for these trucks. You can pick them up for around $20 at your local parts store.
Hello, If you are unable to fix yourself, than yes you can drive it to local shop. You still have front brakes working. If you can repair yourself start by removing rear tire than brake drum and look for broken parts. Most likely they will fall out when you remove drum. Replace worn or broken parts which are inexpensive for your car. Check for leaking fluid from broken break lines and check fluid level under hood. Keep me informed N I'll help. Paul
If you have an aftermarket trailer towing plug on it, that's where i would look first. Something is shorting out in there, or you have a broken wire or ground somewhere. Proabably near the back where gravel stones can hit.
Well, have you checked the fuse? Maybe stick another one (of the same size) in there anyway. If that's ok, then check the stop light switch. It'll be somewhere along the brake pedal linkage/ arm under the dash or under the hood around the linkage or master cylinder. Look around. You can short across the wires temporarily to see if they light up and then you'll know if that's it.
