When driving the right brake light does not come on. Have noticed that when the steering wheel column is up the brake light comes on. When the steering wheel is adjusted down to drive when you stop the car the brake light does not come on.

Just a thought, but I figure with an electrical nightmare, you need as many posibilities as you can get. There is a switch behind your brake pedal. when you step on the brake, it contacts a button on the switch, which allows power to get to your brake lights. Maybe one of the wires coming from the switch is catching the steering column mechanisms. I hate electrical stuff. So, I wish you the best of luck. I sincerely hope that I could be of some help.

I changed the entire steering column in my 92 s-10 and now have now brake lights at all no power going to the brake light switch itself and no left blinker but the right side works and turn the flashers on...


Check the brake light fuse. Check that one of the brake light fuse terminals has power at all times. Power for the brake lights goes from the fuse panel to the brake light switch, before the brake light wire goes into the steering column.

Try having someone watch ur lights as you tilt the steering wheel in different positions and pressing on the brake in each tilt position. Sounds strange but the brake light go through teh wiring in the steering column. I drive with my wheel tilted higher than normal to keep BOTH brake lights working.

Passanger side brake light issue


Yes! It is a faulty turn signal assembly. You can try actuating the hazards several times, to try cleaning the contacts but if there is no change then replace it. In case you want to know, the wires from the brake switch, go up into the turn-signal assembly then out to the tail-lights. To fix it, disconnect the battery, you will need some tools. A steering wheel puller, a steering shaft compression tool, 1/2" drive ratchet, metric sockets, cir-clip pliers, a couple of small picks, #2 philips head screwdriver, and some torque-head screwdrivers. carefully pull off the horn cover( may have a couple of scews holding it from the other side), unplug the horn wire (push and twist), remove the cir-clip, remove the nut, mark the area where the steering wheel and shaft meet (use white-out), press off the steering wheel, Compess the shaft, remove the retaining clip(with the picks), remove horn spinner base, remove turn-signal assembly. I need to step back alittle bit, the plug, to the turn-signal, is half-way down the steering column, to unplug it you need to remove the lower dash panel, the bolts holding the column up inplace. The plug is in clear sight but the wiring harness is inside a plastic sheath, you'll see what I'm talking about.

Drivers side rear turn signal and brake light not working


I've noticed the same problem with my 2001 Ford Exployer Sport Trac. When my girlfriend drives my truck she raises the steering column, and when I'm driving, I lower the column. I noticed when I was driving recently the left front turn signal kept flashing quickly, thought it was the bulb, but changed and still happening. Today I took apart the steering column cover and noticed the wiring for the turn signals and hazards were loose. To fix this problem I pulled the wires out of column more as to not stress the connection. So far this has fixed the problem.

Brake light don't light unless steering wheel is all the way up


Check the turn signal switch. The brake lights run power through the turn signal switch. If the switch is bad or the connections are bad it will cause your problem.
