    Yes, I see where the bulb goes into a gray unit, but nothing is attached to the gray unit to make it operate.

My brake and hazard lights don't work on my 2001 Chevy Astro Van. Turn signals work fine, running lights work, and the top brake light works fine. Replaced bulbs, no change, fuses are fine. Where do I look...

Buy a cheap multimeter and measure your voltage at the bulb when the brake lights are supposed to be on. You should have 12vdc. Is your 3rd brake light and brake lights on the same fuse? If not, measure to see if you have 12vdc at the fuse itself.

A friend of mine has a 1997 Honda Accord coupe. The rear window brake light is not working. I took the bulb out, but it looks fine. However, there doesn't appear to be any wires connected to it. I...

The bulb plugs into a socket. You should have positive voltage and a ground at the socket. Without testing for that (with the brake depressed) you are guessing. Did you try another bulb?

I have A 2001 accord coup.The two main brake not working #rd dose

Here I assume that by refering to the 3rd light which means the one in the middle works fine.If this is so then it means that your brake switch located near the pedal are working perfectly here..So next thing you need is a meter and read the voltage reading at the connection point of the wiring to both indicators or brake light connection.Hopes this gives you an idea what to do.Good luck

2001 Honda Accord All brake lights out except 3rd brake light


To me it sounds like a grounding's an 8 year old car so quite
possibly the chassis ground that the tail lights connect to is no longer
good. Probably a black wire going to a bolt screwed directly into the body of the car. Have to unscrew it sandpaper/wire brush clean the connection
coat with vaseline (prevents re-rusting) and retighten. Good luck!

1991 Honda Accord brake light probelm.

Check the prones inside the connector that you plug into the brake light module. You may have to squeeze, wiggle, tilt each one to see which one is not connecting all that good. I know it may sound confusing. I tried to explain the best of I could.

89 Honda Accord brake light and turn signal seem connected

Looks as though you have earthing problems.
I would make sure that the earthing is O.K on flasher and brake.
You would then find your symptom disappear.

Hope that sorts it.

If you are referring to the "brake lights" at the rear of the Accord, then it would be the brakelight switch mounted on top of the brake pedal that needs checking. It is most likely shorted. There are instances that the wires/connectors might also require checking over while at times, it could just be a spring missing.

If on the other hand, you are referring to the brake indicator in the dashboard, then that signifies that your brake fluid level in the reservoir is getting low and would require topping. It could also indicate that some of your brake pads are getting thin.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
