Question about 2003 Chevrolet Impala

1 Answer

My brake lights wont come on on my 2003 chevy impala

My husband changed the stoplight switch, checked all the fuses, and bulbs none of them were broke. My signal and tail lights still work just not my brake lights. I do have one bar style brake light on the trunk that lights every time I touch the brake, but the main two won't light up. How do I fix this so I can get a state inspection sticker?

Some cars have two brake switches under the dash. Try manually pushing the button on the switch while someone looks at the brake lights. It may just need adjusted. Good luck. Please rate me so I know how I'm doing. Thanks.

I already replaced the stoplight switch on my honda 2003 and my brakes still won't work. What could be wrong?

check the bulbs on the back,or if a power goes on the back whilst braking,or you might have a fuse blown.

My husband's 2008 chevy impala will not shift out of park?

first check to see if any fuses are blown. the interlock is not releasing if the fuse is good there is a switch on the brake pedal that signals the lock to undo check to see if there is power to it. if these two things are good the lock release on the column may be bad and not releasing the gear shift. hope this helps

2003 Impala Brake lights dont work

The brake lights are routed through the signal light switch.
Looks like that will be the next switch to replace and the problem.

2004 chevy brake light fuse keeps blowing...fine when you replace the fuse but then when you step on the brake it blows (the fuse that say BRK SW}

you have a short somewhere. if it is the brake switch fuse it is probably the brake switch which should somwhere on the pedal arm or actuated by the pedal arm. also check your bulbs if you haven't already. hope this helps.

Rear Brake Lights not working, 3rd light is working

check the fuse for the stoplights. Even though the 3rd one is working it should be on a different fuse. With both of them not working even after you changed the bulb it would seem to lead to a fuse.
