Check the ground wire & leads, if not try the multi-function switch in the column

The brake lights are routed through the signal light switch.
Looks like that will be the next switch to replace and the problem.

SOURCE: Brake lights don't work. Replaced bulbs, checked

Yes, you need to of course check the voltage coming into and going out of the brake light switch, if 12 Volts are there going out and coming in while pressing on the brake pedal, your brake lights aren't getting a good ground or there is a break in the circuit between that switch & the lights.

On occasion the tail lights will work with a weak ground circuit where the Brake lights won't. Best way to determine this is to just hook up the 12 volt tester to the Brake light hot wire & there at the bulb ground, then in an area away from the bulb that has a good possibility of contact/ground.

Really that's it, if the 12Volts is getting to the bulb but it isn't lighting, if you aren't getting the voltage there and the brake switch is hot on both sides when pressed, the break in voltage will have to be traced from that switch to the tail light to find the problem.

good luck.

1 brake light doesn't work... good bulb and fuse


Lights are usually on a dual circuit! Left and right have separate fuses, check all fuses or check the fuse diagram on fuse cover or manual to identify correct fuse!

On my 2007 Dodge Nitro the third brake light & towing brake lights dont work, i've checked all the fuses related to this problem and are ok


INSURE THAT THE LIGHT UNIT IS NOT DEFECTIVE. AUTO ELECTRIC DIAGNOSIS BASICALLY IS FAIRLY SIMPLE.
1. CHECK THE CIRCUIT FOR THE FIRST POINT YOU HAVE POWER.
2. CHECK THE LAST POINT YOU DON'T HAVE POWER......THE PROBLEM LIES BETWEEN THE 2 POINTS

Both brake lights went out at the same time i changed the bulbs but the brake lights still wont light up when i depress the brakes but my rear lights still work


ok so what your saying is that the tail lights still work but no brake lights work, you've replaced the bulbs, next step is to check the fuse for the brake lights, if its bad just replace it, if its good, you need to check the brake light switch thats located at the top of the brake pedal arm, ( up under the dash where the brake arm attaches to the mount, you will see a switch,,, sometimes they just get stuck, so depress the brake and see if the switch is moving at all, if not, remove the switch and replace it as long as the adjustment looked to be correct.

When I press the brake pedal only the left brake light comes on. The bulbs are good and the fuses are all good. Replace the right light modual but still no help. this is on a 2008 Dodge Nitro


How do you know the bulb is good? Even if it uses the same bulb as the tail light it is always a different filiment. But if you tried replacing the bulb and the fuse than it has to be the wiring. If it's a 2008 it should be covered by the warranty, I would bring it into the dealer.

I replaced a cracked rear tail light with an after market new light. Now the brake light won't work but reverse lights and directional signal do. The bulbs are fine as I've moved them around and...



  • If there are no brake lights period the check the stop switch (brake light switch)
  • This is attached to the upper part of the brake pedal itself. Should be a little wire off of it. When that goes bad the brake lights will not work at all.
  • Please note that the fuse for "brakes" is ABS only and has no bearing on the brake lights themselves working.

Where is the fuse for rear brake lights on 2007 Dodge Nitro located?


In the fuse box, under the hood on the drivers side. There is a detailed map of what fuses do what on the inside of the box cover.
