I have a solution for you and it is your turn signal switch. I replaced mine and all of the lights work now. It is a pain to put in since you have to take off the steering wheel to replace ti but it will work after that. The switch is less than sixty dollars but ti will save you from getting a ticket

My break lights wont work. The bulbs are fine. I'm just wondering how to check if its a problem with the sockets?

most likely, if all the fuses are okay, it is the switch at the top of the brake pedal under the dash - you should get 12 volts to the switch, and 12 volts through the switch when you press the brake pedal and the switch is activated - hope that helps - have a nice day :O)

My backup lights do not work bulbs good 1986 chevy c1500

If the bulbs are good than you need to use a test light and make sure that there is power to the light socket. if there is not power than you either blew a fuse or there is a break in the wire somewhere

My break lights are not working in my 1999 Chevy lumina LS, the mount back light is working but the two back break lights are not. The blinkers work. What to do?

Check the bulbs and then check the wiring to make sure one of the wires has not been pinched or cut. The problem has to be somewhere between the mount light and the taillights

I have a 98 chevy lumina and my dash lights and rear running lights went out. I found a fuse under the hood labeled parking lamps that was blown. I assume that this is the problem but everytime i put a new...

well unfortunately you have a short. Try pulling the bulb sockets out of the lenses. You should be able to get to them from the trunk. Take the bulbs out and see if the sockets look normal under the bulb. Also see if you can trace the wires through the trunk to see if they got pinched somewhere. Let us know if you have more questions. I have a couple troubleshooting posts here:

The brake lights wont work. The brake light over

the break light wire on the lumina runs through the blinker switch or multifunction switch on the colum.. check there as well as at the tail light sockets. on the late 90s gm cars the sockets had a tendancy to rot away... use a test light at the brake light wire in the trunk and have a friend apply the break. if there is power then may have to get new tail lights. or replacement bulbs.

I have a 89 jeep wrangler and the rear passenger side turn light, break light, or tail light will not work. It was working and still is on the front. I have checked bulb and fuse and I cant find. Its like...

Like any bulb, it needspower and ground. Probe the contact in the bulb socket with a test light and check for power. If you have power, use the same ground you did for the test light and connect a short piece of wire there and probe the socket with the bulb installed (insert down into the socket between the bulb and socket) If the light comes on re-ground the socket.
If you get nothing for power check the harness closer to the switch...if nothing there you may need to check the signal switch to make sure an internal contact hasn't failed. I'm betting it's a bad ground though.

Brake Light Problem -1997 Chevy Lumina

The ground wire in the trunk area, coming from the brake light harness, might have come off or really loose. Hope this will get your lights working again. Best wishes.
