Question about 1997 Buick LeSabre

1 Answer

Brake lights do not come on!

I have tried replacing the fuse and my brake lights still do not come on. They were working before I replaced my flasher for my turn signal. I do not know if that is a coincidence or if I accidentally disconnected something? It is not the bulbs. The center brake light that is above in the window works fine.

I dont have a diagram but the brake light switch has to feed the turn signal switch, Either that wire has a bad connection, or the turn signal switch is bad. Jiggle the turn signal lever and see if the brake lights try to work.

I think that your flasher is bad I believe that the 4-ways flasher is a seperate flasher unit it should be in the fuse box and look like the 4-way flasher , to find the flasher turn on the 4-ways and you can feel it or hear it flashing and lok for the flasher for the turn signals

Time to change the flasher unit, it's usually close to the drivers side of vehicle and behind a fuse box access panel and will have something like "12v 23/98W " on it. It's a largish cube shaped componant and may be water damaged !

SOURCE: my 94 buick regals turn signals and brake lights

could be brake light switch but i would be more inclined to think the signal switch is bad, the brake light circuit goes from the pedal to to the turn signal switch then to the taillights

If you already tried the bulbs, fuses and relays:

There's a switch on your brake pedal arm the controls the brake lights. It may need to be replaced or adjusted.

2003 GRand Prix, the 3rd brake light works , replaced bulbs and fuse under brake pedal, brake lights still don't work, any ideas?


The button is stuck in? Which button? If it is the flasher button then I would think that is why the brake lights and the flashers don't work. If it is the button behind the brake pedal that is stuck in it should keep the brake lights on and that would stop the flashers from working. I need more clarification on which button you are talking about being stuck.

Most likely this is a brake light switch issue. Replace switch.

If your emergency flashers don't work, all flasher bulbs are fine, but flashing too fast, then check and replace Hazard light switch.

Brake lights run through the hazzard switch. There are known problems with this, and the multifunction switch. You may need to buy a new hazzard switch and OR the multifunction switch. Before you do that, check the pigtail that goes into the brake switch up by the fender, make sure it's not shorting out up there. Happened to me!

Brake lights and turn signal don't work???


turn on the emergency flashers(e-flashers)if they work check the bulbs at the same time.if this is good then check the fuses.you may have a problem with the turn signal flasher needing replacing.this is a different flasher than that of the e-flasher,looks the same but a different flasher.usually located on or around the fuse panel under the dash.the brake light problem could be a misadjusted switch or a bad switch.the switch is at the base of the brake pedal and has two wires to it.one wire will have power all the time and the other wire will only have power on it when the brake pedal is pushed.if not then the switch will need replacing.check for broken wires at the switch as these sometimes break causing a problem.

No brake lights 3rd brake light works just put all new bulbs in.checked all fuses even under the hood,does this vehicle have a flasher fuses because those dont work either. both turn signal and rear lamps...


car should have an emergency flasher. If it isn't working, it could affect the brake lights. might be the same unit as the turn flasher but different relay inside. Is your fuse panel behind the glovebox? manual says flasher is in the fusebox. It's worth a try replacing this flasher unit. Looks like this:
