Question about 2000 GMC Sierra C/K3500

1 Answer

Brakes lights won't work, replaced bulbs no good,

I think my hubby put trailer lights on wrong, and blew brake light switch, we put new bulbs in but not working, we know there is a switch under brake area but not sure where on this truck and how to get to it. PLEASE if anyone knows where it is and how to remove that would be great. We replaced the relay switch also so I think this is our last option.

Hook up to my trailer , when i apply brakes my trailer lights flash


Most trailers use a single bulb system with the bright filament used for the brake and turn signal, and the dim one for running light. Your truck, however, has a separate bulb for brakes and turn signal, thus requiring the use of a logic box to operate the trailer lights. Get one from parts store, install and all should be good.

All fuses are good - brake lights, rear running lights work fine. but the reverse lights won't come on when put into reverse. Any idea what might be going on? As far as I know the bulbs are still good...


You will need to either replace or adjust your backup switch, it is located on the transmission next to the shifter. Hope this helps, thank you for using FixYa!

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.

Ford f150 2002 has no brake lights


yes there is. Above the brake pedal there is a switch tat turns the lights on when you press the pedal. It is tough to replace due to the lack o room to put your hands. but is an inexpensive part.

1996 Chev Silverado K3500 dually, no brake lights


Check at the light socket in the rear, where your lights don't work. You need a test light or a voltage meter, and check to see that you have a groun there, power for your parking light, and power to the brake light. You should have power for the parking lights seeing that it works, and a ground. Just verify that your power for the brakes is getting to the bulb, or not. Just a good place to start.
And you are correct that if the third brake light works (top) your brake light switch is fine.

Hooked my 2007 Sprinter camping trailer to the factory lights/brakes hook-up located below bumper of my 2005 Silverado 4x4 extended cab truck. Everything works fine except for the right trailer turn...


Is this a 4 way or 6 way connection system? If your truck is wrong, then all factory equipped trailer package harnesses would be wrong, tell your trailer guy...I don't think so.
Is this the first trailer you have hauled?
Let me know, and we will go from there.
