    Does the turn signal work? It could just be a bad ground/socket. Sometimes these things can make the best technicians go crazy.

This may sound silly, but the brake light electrical system is wired throught the directional signal switch. The bulb uses the same element for stopping and signaling. On a stretch, the socket may have a bad ground. Try to verify that power is making the socket. If it's there, then it could be the ground.

Stop in at an Advance Auto Parts place and get new fuses. That's all that's needed.

2004 Honda Pilot, right rear brake light doesn`t work. I know it`s not the light bulb because it works for the turn signal and hazard lights.


Chances are that is the bulb. Its a dual filament bulb. The brake portion of it is burnt out. try swapping it with the left side and see if it works then. If it works, get a new bulb.

I had the same problem that the brake light / turn signal on the right side didn't work (in the 2006 Dodge Caravan it's the same bulb). After a long search I found the problem: There was corrosion on the contact of the bulb assembly. After scraping off the corrosion everything works now.

There were problems with the circuit board assemblies on the earlier years of the Envoy. Also check the socket for the brake light, make sure the contacts are OK.

License plate lights do not work. Bulbs changed still does not work. The right brake light does not work. Changed bulb and plug. Turning signals work, tail lights work. All works on the left side.


Well for the license plat you might wanna check the fuse. and the brake light if one works fine then I'm sure you need a new bulb in the other side. Good luck

Running lights work but no blinkers or brake lights. Changed fuses and bulbs no luck


I'm inclined to believe it is the turn signal switch. When you select left or right, the brake light is removed from that side, and the flasher is connected to the bulb instead, making the brake light on that side flash as the indication that you plan to turn. You have lost everything, but the simple answers check out.

If you have lost signals, brake lights and tail lights, then it is more likely that the ground supplied to the bulbs is not working, since the tail lights share noting in common with the brakes lights and turn signals but ground.

If the tail lights work, the fact that the brake lights and rear turn signals share that switch starts to look meaningful — even more so if the front turn signals also don't work. But the front signals and the rear signals use different circuitry in the switch, so it would be something more mechanical in the switch than electrical in that case.
