SOURCE: 96 monte carlo rear window brake light works but

This is a common GM specific problem. Your turn signal switch contains an elaborate networking device that has to cancel brakelights while running a turn light. Often times the ground within the turn signal switch is lost causing your situation. After investigating such other possibilities as fuses and loose grounds it may become necessary to replace the turn signal switch. Thank you, Dana

What is wrong with my brake lights the one in the back window work but the two bottom ones work what is it


there may be a relay or fuses in the engine compartment in a sealed box compartment. The window light may be a different relay or directly wired somehow to the brake switch on the brake pedal.it could be a blown globe. but i am assuming you checked that out also.

HOW TO WIRE BRAKE LIGHTS FROM THIRD LIGHT 97 MONTE CARLO


Instead of improvising, why not get the stop lamps working the way they should be. You must be getting power through 15A fuse 23 in the fuse block and the stop lamp switch, otherwise the high mounted stop lamps would not work. Stop lamp power is routed through the turn signal switch and is applied to the tail/turn/stop-lamps. That should solve your problem

Brake lights dont work. even after changing the bulbs. the light on the panel works fine. but the rear brake lights connected to the rear end do not.


Sounds like brake light switch is bad. It's mounted just above your brake pedal under dash. It's a pretty simple fix, unplug couple of wires and unclip switch, reverse to install.

1997 monte carlo. 3rd brake light works, but tail lamp brake lights do not.


The 3rd brake light working does reveal that the fuse is good, and the brake switch is good. Check the bulbs, sockets, and the wiring between the brake lights

Brake lights erractic on 1996 Monte Carlo


It could be wiring, a bad ground, a defective plug to the tail-light, the tail-light itself, a loose fuse, or a dirty or faulty connection at the hazard switch. If it is the hazard switch you can try to actuate it (on and off) 6 to 12 times. This may help clean off the contacts and let the brake lights, return to normal.
