Question about 1999 Jeep Wrangler

Left turn signal stops flashing when brake pedal is depressed.

Hazard flashers also stop working when brake pedal is depressed. The right turn signal works properly. Flashers and turn signal begin to flash again after brake pedal is released.

There is a ground problem, most likely in the tail unit itself, but a ground problem is hard to find and easy to fix. reground the system, the turning unit, and the problem should stop. About the hazards, I don't know...... some times in older cars, that is the way it works. because the brake and hazard element in the bulb is the same and the old cars used a break in the power, but the new cars use a break in the ground. any way, chase the ground down first, it is usually the cause.

Where is the stop lamp or brake lamp fuse and panel for a 2007 cadillac cts?


Kevin , this is a very complex way of stoplamp control , I will post GM service Description and Operation of how they work an let you deside if you want to tackle this ! Do the center high mount brake lights work ?
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 bas relay close and battery positive voltage is applied through the bas 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.

There could be a code stored in the EBCM - electronic brake control module - DTC B3903 Stop Lamp Relay Circuit
DTC C0278 Brake Pedal Position Sensor Not Calibrated
there are several other codes that pertane to the brake lights . you could try Replaceing the bas relay !

Need to locate ebcm for a 1996 tahoe


The ebcm has nothing to do with the brake lights , the ebcm - electronic brake control module is for the ABS - anti-lock brake system !
Stoplamps
Voltage is available at all times through the STOP/HAZ fuse to the torque converter clutch (TCC)/stoplamp switch. With the depression of the brake pedal, the contacts in the TCC/stoplamp switch close. Voltage is available from the stoplamp relay on pickups, or the TCC/stoplamp switch on all of the other vehicles, through the turn/hazard switch to the left stoplamp, the right stoplamp, and the stoplamp lights. If a turn signal is in operation, the stoplamp on that side flashes as a turn signal. The other stoplamp serves as a stop lamp.

My turn signals stopped working suddenly on my 1992 ford probe lx. Prior right side was blinking faster. Changed signal switch next to steering column changed turn sinal/hazzard flasher by the clutch...


If this is not working on the right side and is OK on the left side then one of the indicator lamps on the right side has blown out. The reduced load on the right hand indicators causes the flasher can to flash faster.
Try turning on the hazard switch then walk around your car to see which lamp has blown out.

Would a bad Flasher relay cause the brake lights not to work?


The flasher does not stop the brake lights from working. Check # 18 fuse in fusebox under lower left side of dash. if it's ok, the brake light switch, on the brake pedal arm is next. light green wire with red stripe is hot if fuse 18 is ok. Depress brake pedal, light green with no stripe should have power. if not, replace brake light switch. If light green wire has power with pedal depressed, combination switch under the steering is next. Remove the cover from around the combo switch {under the steering wheel}. depress brake pedal, light green wire should have power. If it does, pedal still depressed, orange with light blue wire & wire with light green & orange should have power. Those 2 wires are brake & rear turn signal wires. { The turn signal switch should be in the middle, not right position or left. while checking for power in the last 2 wires. Good Luck drvolt.

My 2000 cavalier signal lights stopped working all together....both directions. the hazards still work, but i cant get my left and right turn signals to work.


Probably the flasher, as I think you have a separate flasher for the turn signals under the dash above the brake pedal. It is probably next to the hazard flasher. If you can't find it, turn the hazards on and follow the sound. The turn flasher is probably next to the hazard flasher. Please let me know if this isn't the problem or you have more questions.

I have a 2000 Pontiac Montana and when I step on the brake pedal with the lights on or when I put it into reverse both turn signals indicator on the dash light up. Also with the light on the left turn...


Sounds like your hazard switch is going bad. There were a few years where the switches for the hazard lights would go bad, and since they overlap two systems; the brake lights, and the turn signals/flashers, it would cause all sorts of crazy things to happen. Because of the circuit overlap, normally if you step on the brakes while the warning flashers are on, the flashers stop working. You'll have to replace the switch for the 4-way flashers, and it should fix you right up. Don't go to GM for this, as they'll sell you the same known defective switch. Go to some place like Rockauto.com, or autozone, etc and get an aftermarket switch that has had this problem addressed in its design.
