SOURCE: 2003 silverado 1500 v-6 brake lights dont work

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

SOURCE: Brake lights don't work. Replaced bulbs, checked

Yes, you need to of course check the voltage coming into and going out of the brake light switch, if 12 Volts are there going out and coming in while pressing on the brake pedal, your brake lights aren't getting a good ground or there is a break in the circuit between that switch & the lights.

On occasion the tail lights will work with a weak ground circuit where the Brake lights won't. Best way to determine this is to just hook up the 12 volt tester to the Brake light hot wire & there at the bulb ground, then in an area away from the bulb that has a good possibility of contact/ground.

Really that's it, if the 12Volts is getting to the bulb but it isn't lighting, if you aren't getting the voltage there and the brake switch is hot on both sides when pressed, the break in voltage will have to be traced from that switch to the tail light to find the problem.

good luck.

Brake switch or the release switch for the shifter. Could be wiring, doubtful though.

My brake lights stay on while driving my 2008 chevy 1500 Silverado any solution


I've seen lots of problems with brake switches on these style pickups. Usually they stick on. That also prevents you from being able to set your cruise control, because the engine computer sees that the brakes are on, when they're really not. If you have access to a scan tool that can read codes and data, there should be a Diagnostic Trouble Code stored in the engine computer related to the brake switch. You can also verify by looking at data in the scan tool that the switch is actually staying "applied", when it really should be "released".
If you don't have a scan tool, reach under the dash by the top of the brake pedal and unplug the brake switch. If your brake lights turn off (ignition key has to be on for brake lights to work), then you've found your problem.

Cruise does'nt work all the time have to pull back


the brake switch is what is used to disengage the cruise, so I would check to see if the brake pedal is slightly contacting the switch to keep the cruise disengaged..it is located just on the back side of the brake pedal arm up under the dash...it may be out of adjustment or maybe just plain defective

Why do the brake lights stay on my 89 chevrolet silverado 1500 truck? If II pull back on the brake pedal and the brake lights go off.


Sounds like your brake light switch, which is behind the brake pedal, may have failed. They are simple and inexpensive to replace.

It looks like a bracket, that wraps around the brake pedal arm, and it has a cylinder type switch that makes contact with the brake pedal arm. When the brake pedal is pressed down it pushes the cylinder switch together which closes the circuit and makes you brake lights come on.
