Question about 2000 Chevrolet Tahoe

1 Answer

Brake lights??? I have a 94 ford explorer and my right brake light wont work. Well, it works, but only most of the time. Everytime I go take a driving test, it won't work so I end up going to an auto shop and it will work perfectly when they look at it. The diagnostic told me that I needed a new multi function switch, whisch cost 600 dollars( I paid 800 for the SUV) and I cannot believe it. I went to buy a brake light switch and the guy told me that the wire on the light plug was cut and needed to be replaced, that will cost 8.99. So...how do I fix it myself???

Tail lights on my 1995 for explorer work but brake lights wont come on top bar brake light works but bottom brake lights on tail light dont work what could be the problem


your brake lights also go through your turn signal switch,also known as the multifunction switch. You will have to remove the cover around the lower part of steering column to gain access to the switch.

98 Ford Explorer Brake lights not working,top brake light does


I had a similar problem like this with my 98 explorer once; neither brake lights worked and the top one stayed on very dimly at all times. It turns out both of my brake lights went bad at exactly the same time, which for some reason made the top light stay on. Felt like an idiot, but all I needed to do was change the bulbs.

94 ford explorer brakes


HI, i recommend inspecting the brake peddle switch located near the brake pedal foot lever under the dash. this switch may be malfunctioning or the wires that connect to the switch housing may be lose as well.

If the switch checks out ok, i would then move to the entire wire inspection. Inspect the wires that run to the brake lights to see if they are lose or torn or corroded. if you notice any lose or corroded contact clips, re[place the entire wiring that connects the brake to the electrical current and switch.

Most of the time its bad wires but, dont forget to check the switch that is linked to the brake peddle. this is a known problem spot also. these switches can go bad over time...

2001 Explorer Sport ,Rear Driver Brake Light and Turn Sig. Broke


Rear lights are double filament bulbs one side for the lights other side for the brake/turn signals so it still may be a bulb. Do u have a test light or volt meter you can check to make sure u have power there when brakes or turn signals are activated. Or just try another bulb.
