Here's a link to the stoplight switch,it is connected to the brake pedal,it may just be loose,to remove,just disconnect electrical connector,loosen nut and remove.You may have to adjust it so it will push switch in.If this doesn't fix,you can take part back and get refund.

SOURCE: 1994 toyota camry taillights are not on, but break lights are on,

I would remove the Lamp Failure Senor module form the driver side of the trunk area, it is on the side brace, behind the interior carpet on the driver side. Disassemble it, and look for burnt components. If the Sensor is OK; look for a broken wire on the driver side arm that holds the trunk open. It is red or green, or red/green tracer. Broken wires in this area are common to that model.

Why my break lights wont come on and tail lights do wats wrong


the brake switch sends power to the turn signal switch and then on to the bulbs. Brake lights are on a separate fuse. Check both areas for the problem

Hazard lights, break lights, turn signal lights wont work. Ive changed all the bulbs and they still wont work.


have you checked to see if you have any power to lights. it might be a blown fuse! if you do not have a book on where the fuses are call auto-zone and they will tell you. or pull one fuse at a time to check. check to see if any power to bulbs. good-day ! if you have problem it might be a ground wire to lights.

Break lights wont work changed the break booster and switch still no break lights


Your turn signal switch may be the problem. The brake light circuit runs through the turn signal switch. Do the basics and check for a blown fuse, broken light bulb or bulb holder.

Break lights not working properly


hi
silly thing to sugest but would you have the brake/side light bulbs in the wrong way? if you look closley at the bulbs there is two pins either side on the round silver part. 1 pin sits higher than the other, make sure you fit the bulbs in the bulb holders to match the pins on the bulb sounds complicated but it realy is an easy mistake to make.

My brake lights stop working . So I replacd yhe light bulb but the brake light still don't work.


I know what it is. I have the same problem. Try, when pressing the break, pulling your turning signal lever towards yourself, but not all the way to turn on the brights. If your breaks light up then you need a new turn signal switch. Part of the switch disables the break lights when that flasher comes on, but when it goes bad, it wont let the lights com on at all.

1999 accord wont shift out of park and no break lights.


u have a problem with ur break light switch,,, its at the brake pedal and is threaded into the brake pedal bracket, if u have a new one and are going to replace it, disconnect the connector, loosen the 14mm nut and remove the switch by turning it counterclockwise...install ther new switch by turning it clockwise and tightening the 14mm nut then reconnect the connector...be sure to adjust the switch or else the brake lights will stay on at all times...draining ur battery and possibly burning out ur bulbs...this also releases ur trans from park to put into gears
