All lights work, but brake lights, new bulbs and fuses and brake light switch


Well, you've replaced everything between except the wire. You need to verify if voltages are present either with a voltmeter or a test light. verify power on both sides of the fuse, then make sure the brake switch has and passes power. If the turn signals flash the brake light, then test the turn signal switch as well.

Most hazards flash brake lights not the turn signals, double check your signal bulbs. Try to get it to flas fast and visually inspect which bulb isn't working. Then replace that bulb

The rear turn signal and brake lights on my 95 Cad. STS aren't working.The front flasher is on.But at twice the normal speed.I've checked all the bulbs and they're fine.What would be the next process of...


On GM cars when the lights flash at a high rate of speed there is a bulb that needs replacing. Many of these bulbs have two filaments, with one burnt out the light will still turn on but the part that lets it flash is gone, it will appear fine though. You'll have to replace the rear bulb(s) as the one in the front is working still. This should solve the problem.
