Pastor Norman, Pastor Dave here.
Since you already replaced the left rear brake light bulb and that didn't help, please take that bulb socket out again as you did before, and find a way to test the bulb contact for electricity when the brake lights are on. You should get 12 volts out of the "hot" metal contact.
If the other two lights are on, and you have no current in the socket, you either have a bad socket, or a broken wire somewhere.
One way is to go back a few inches and skin off the insulation of the brake light wire and see if there is current back a few inches from the socket. Cover with tape when you finish.
If you decide to cobble a solution, you could run a good wire from the other brake light that works and splice it in to the dead wire.
Be Blessed.

    That should be a fuse under the dash somewhere.

The bulbs should be a dual filament bulb, but, it sounds like you did get them if one side works and the other doesn't, and you changed both. Do you have running lights on both sides? if not that would lead me to think there is something wrong with the connection somewhere. try going to where the bulb is and start wiggling the housing and wiring around the housing, and see if you can make the light flicker on and off. If so, its in the wiring.

SOURCE: How do I replace the Rear Brake light bulb of 2001 Toyota Sienna?

I have a 2001 Sienna and have had to replace most of my tail light bulbs.

The bulbs that are mounted in the fender (wrap arounds) have acess panels in the van's interior that easily pop out and expose the back of the light assembly.

However, the bulbs that are found in the lift gate are a different matter. You have to remove the whole interior panel to the lift gate to expose the light assemblies. Go to your auto parts store and get a tool to help pop out the plastic retainers from the lift gates metal frame. Don't force the retainers out. Go slowly and gently so that you don't damage the interior panel. If you are really gentle you might even get to reuse the retainers.

Good luck!

You have a problem in the wiring at these bulbs. Since all of them aren't working then the problem is between the bulbs and the ground: the wires that go from the bulbs to the body of the car are either no longer attached to it or the connection(the bolt that tightens them on the body) is covered in rust and that insulates it.
Find the connection bolt by following the wires, clean it with wire wool then unscrew it an clean the copper connectors from the wires and the body with fine sandpaper until the metal shines. put all back together and cover it in grease to protect it against future damage.
BTW you can't get the bulb out because the corrosion has got in there also: just force the bulb out and then clean all the bulb slots with sandpaper until they shine. Don't forget the brass blades from the bottom of the slots, the ones that make contact with the plots on the bulbs.

07 cadillac cts has no brake light all fuses are good and replace the brake switch.still not working any advice


Stop Lamps
The brake pedal position sensor is a resistive device used to sense the action of the driver's application of the brake pedal. The brake pedal position sensor provides an analog signal that will increase as the brake pedal is pressed.
The brake pedal position sensor receives both a 5-volt reference voltage and a low reference signal from the electronic brake control module (EBCM). When the brake pedal is pressed, a variable signal is applied from the brake pedal position sensor to the EBCM through the brake sensor signal circuit. The fuse block left rear supplies battery positive voltage to the bass relay switch through the BASS fuse. One side of the bass relay coil is permanently grounded at G402. The EBCM supplies voltage to the bass relay coil upon receiving the signal from the brake pedal position sensor. The switch contacts of the bass relay close and battery positive voltage is applied through the bass relay switch to the center high mounted stop lamp (CHMSL), and to the turn signal/hazard flasher module through the stop lamp switch signal circuit. The ground for the CHMSL is applied from G402. The turn signal/hazard flasher module then supplies voltage to the left and right stop lamps in the tail lamp assemblies that have ground at G401 and G402. For export vehicles the stop lamps receive battery positive voltage directly from the bass relay.

Do you know where the rear fuse box is ? Check BAS fuse 15amp. and the bas relay , should be marked on the inside of the fuse box lid . The rear fuse box is located

Fuse Block - Left Rear
In the passenger compartment, under the left side of the rear seat at carpet
Power and Grounding Component Views
Electrical Center Identification Views
Fuse Block - Right Rear
In the passenger compartment, under the right side of the rear seat at carpet.

If fuse and relay are ok your best would be to take to a cadillac dealer .

This is most likely to be your brake switch near your foot pedal then. They can come lose, or just break completely, rare, but it happens.
Get down on the floor and check up behind your brake pedal, it should look fairly obvious where it is then.
Good luck with it.

1990 Volvo DL Sedan Brake Lites Work but Also Come on With Running Lites


Is there a switch on the left side of the dash that has a red lens and a wavy line across it? If so, you have a rear fog light switch and it has been activated, causing your brake lights to come on each time you turn your headlights on. Flip the switch and the rear lights should display only the parking lights with the headlights on.
