I could be wrong but I believe there are 2 fuses. One is under the hood in the fuse block and the other is in the fuse panel either on the side of the drivers side dash board or under the dash on the drivers side. Open the drivers door and see if there is a removable panel there. When you replaced the switch, did you test the wires witha volt meter to see if you have power at the switch? Did you test the main line for power at the tail lights?

ljones, Did you check the "VEH stop" fuse in the left side instrument panel fuse box. There are 3 stop light fuses, 1 for all the stop lights located in the under hood fuse box. 2 in the left side IP fuse box. 1 for the upper stop light and 1 for the lower stop lights. The fuse box in the IP is where the upper and lower stop lights split. Let me know.

SOURCE: 1996 Chev Silverado K3500 dually, no brake lights

The chevys with red brake lights and turn signals do two things and I've fixeds alot of them. Looking at the tail lights with the hazard flashers on. both sides flash with nothingeles on? Or are the hazards yellow? if they're red and the third eye does work the turn signal switch is possible problem but it doesn't let the blubs and the circuit boards in the taillights out as they can fail and do some really bad stories the wires for the brakes and the turns and the hazards are the same ones and if the turns look right and the hazards look right then the turn signal switch transmites the turn too as this doesn't work part of your story can't be true

Why don't i have any tail lights on my truck? no fuse in the fusebox for tail lights can anybody help me please?


Have you checked that your break light switch has not gone bad? It's located at the base the of steering column, just behind the brake pedal.

Also, check the brake light circuit. Start at the fuse box under the hood and make sure the brake lights fuse is not blown, the terminals are free of corrosion and that the connections are tight. Then check the brake light switch on the bake pedal arm.

Brake lights not working on my chevy silverado 2005


Check your fuse. If fuse is good check for voltage into the brake light switch and out of the switch when the brake is pressed. You will need a 12v test light to do this.

98 silverado no brake lights


The first thing is to check for power at the brake light switch,there should be power to one wire the other wire power up when pedal is pushed, this will tell you if it a power loss if theres no power to switch, if theres power to switch and through switch with pedal pushed then loog at the connect for signal switch its near column big connector as brake light power goes through switch you may have fryed that wire have some watch lights as you wiggle but this is only if you have power at brake switch. if theres no power then double check fuses even in the engine compartment, mostlikly it a fuse the wiring should not of burnt with a fuse in line, theres fuses in engine fuse box that also control lights.

98 Chevy pickup brake lights just stopped working has 2 separate fuses both are fine One relay labeled brake it tests OK Stop light switch replaced Rest of the tail lights work fine What else could B?


have you tried to find the brake pedal switch? follow the brake pedal under the dash and there should be a switch that the brake pedal presses to activate the lights when you push it in . if everything else has been checked then I suspect that the switch has moved enough to not work or it may be just bad. let me know if this was it.... hope this works

Brake lights dont work


put a test light directly in the light socket see if the power is being tranfered from the fuse box to the sockets if not check for a in line fuse or a frayed wire.
