No brake lights

All 3 of my brake lights do not work. I have checked the fuses & they are ok and the brake switch on the brake petal seems to be working I can hear it click when it makes contact. is there a relay or something else I am missing?

Hi! I'm sure I've had dealings with this problem before? I understand the switch for the brake Lights click? but have you tested the switch for functionality? i.e. popped a multi meter across the terminals for a circuit test? if not then remove the brake light switch from the top of the pedal assembly the get someone to hold the switch while you touch the two terminals with your probes off the multi meter, remember to have the meter set on Ohm or resistance and audible if possible? you should hear a buzz or see the display dropping to Zero when the switch is releases i.e. open, when push (Button in) buzzing should stop or full reading shown on display.
Well done you've FixYa'd it.

2005 jeep liberty brake lights don't work, none of them but fuses and brake light switch are good.

maybe brake light switch located near your brake petal needs adjusting...its simply a push button that the brake petal hits as the brake petal is depressed usually u can just pull on them toward you and they'll "self-adjust" after pressing on brake petal...push on brake petal with ur hand and make sure this button is depressed while the pedal is down...

My brake lights don't turn on when i press the brake petal.

assuming fuses are ok and the new bulbs are the correct fitment(there are many different types) check the new pedal switch again.
some are adjustable for length. check when you push pedal down that the switch is NOT still in contact with the pedal. if it is then you may need to adjust it to make it shorter, sometimes just pulling the pedal upwards can be enough to do this.
good luck

Rear lights all work with the exception of the brake lights on either side, changed bulbs and checked fuses but brake lights still do not work

look above the brake petal for a switch that is attached to the petal linkage-it is either unplugged or hung up/misaligned.

Headlight dont come on and no blower for heat as well as the brake light stays on

hi did you check your fuses theres a set of fuses under your hood, and in your car check your owner manual it will tell u were they are located. you will have a burn or broken metal bead in the fuse if it blowen also after checking fuses check your light bulbs. same go's for the fan check the fuses if not blown check the fan switch with a test light, if it works check the fan motor itself i would suggest bring it to a shop if the fuses are fine. it is a big job to do on your own the air system. the brake light if its staying on it should be as simple as a break petal switch located on the break petal itself it mite of just sliped out little white button just slip it back into place

Reverse lights not working

When you press the brake petal it activates a switch located under your dash. Just follow your brake petal up until you see something that compresses when you apply the brakes. It is possible that the switch is not lined up or needs to be replaced.
