You obviously have a short to ground on one of the wires to the back (if it was the front the brake shouldn't blow the fuse). the most common problem is usually in a trailer light harness. if you look under the drivers side rear of the truck, down under the tail light there will be a plugin junction. pull this plug-in apart and see if the fuse still blows. if it does then the problem is forward of that connector, if it doesn't then the problem is behind that plugin. be sure to check for "green death" (electrical corrosion) at all joints especially any trailer hook ups.

SOURCE: Tail lights don't work on 1998 Chevy Silverado.

check the wiring from the tailights back to the fuse panel, it sounds like an open connection. if i recall correctly check under the dash on the drivers side near the fuse panel for a bunch of wires in a bundle and look carefully for a wire or two that are cut/shorted/or seperated, you can also check under the drivers side kick panel by the hood release.

Just a thought but you may want to look at your multifunction lever. The brake lights have a contact in there and it may be bad. Not uncommon so I have been told. I replaced mine but be warned the multifunction lever will set you back almost $200

98 silverado no brake lights


The first thing is to check for power at the brake light switch,there should be power to one wire the other wire power up when pedal is pushed, this will tell you if it a power loss if theres no power to switch, if theres power to switch and through switch with pedal pushed then loog at the connect for signal switch its near column big connector as brake light power goes through switch you may have fryed that wire have some watch lights as you wiggle but this is only if you have power at brake switch. if theres no power then double check fuses even in the engine compartment, mostlikly it a fuse the wiring should not of burnt with a fuse in line, theres fuses in engine fuse box that also control lights.

Brake light dont work. 2006 chevy truck, 4.8L 2wd


Some of these had two fuses for brake lights. One for the top/center stop lamp and another for the rear left and right brake lights. Usually one said "stop" and the other said "brake" and one was in the underhood panel while the other was in the dash fuse panel. It's not uncommon to blow a brake light fuse [LR and RR] if you tow a trailer but some of these had seperate fuses for the trailer lights also. If you have a test light check both sides of the two fuses for power [ignition key on] while stepping on the brakes. It should at lest narrow your search a bit.

I cant find where my brake light fuses are for my 03 chevy silverado. the left brake light is out and the bulb is fine, but I dont know where the brake light fuse is.


If your right side brake light is working then it won't be a brake fuse as all brake lights are on the same circuit. Check the wiring harness connection for the left side.

ljones, Did you check the "VEH stop" fuse in the left side instrument panel fuse box. There are 3 stop light fuses, 1 for all the stop lights located in the under hood fuse box. 2 in the left side IP fuse box. 1 for the upper stop light and 1 for the lower stop lights. The fuse box in the IP is where the upper and lower stop lights split. Let me know.
