The rear brake shoes etc., are mounted to the backing plate. If it's rusted or damaged, it will need to be replaced in order for the brakes to work properly & safely.

I have a Saturn L200 2003 my back lights come on but when I push my brake in the brakes lights don't work


You can start by checking the brake sensor behind, on the top side of the brake pedal to see if it's still in place and is touched when pressing the pedal.

The bulbs can also be burnt as there may be 2 filaments inside each one.

Hope it helps

Brake lights on my 2003 Saturn L200 won't come one but the center brake light does light. Tail lights are working as well. Would this be the brake switch under the brake pedal?

I just solved a similar problem on my 2003 Saturn. The tail light assembly had gotten wet on a stormy night with the trunk open. There was no problem until the weather turned cold. After looking at the fuses, relays, brake switch etc. I got my trusty voltmeter out. Testing the voltage on the light blue wires in my tail light connector I found the required +12Volts for the brake lights when the brake pedal was pressed. Checking the lamp sockets I found the 12 volts was still present when the brake pedal was pressed.

The water that leaked into the bulb connectors (right and left) and spread the contacts when the water inside them froze! Blowing out the water and pushing the contacts back together solved my problem! Lesson...Keep the trunk closed when it's raining hard and dry out the bulb connectors if they get wet.
