Have someone hold their foot on the brake so you can see which one to change, if you look at the one thats working it will tell you which one has to be changed

I have 1991 Nissan maxima. All my lights,tail lights and brake lights work EXCEPT my left brake light. Changed the bulbs and still dont work. Can someone help?

Pull the bulb back out and look in the plug. They get corroded and the tabs will spread apart and/ or break off. Bend them back if they are there, replace it , if not.. If it looks good, you need to use an ohm meter and check continuity of the tabs to the wire. They usually break close to the plugs.

I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the brake lights are not engaging. I have changed out the brake stop switch, the center brake light bulb was melted and I changed that bulb out and it works when I...

Remove the bulb & use a volt meter to check for power. Harbor Freight has a digital volt meter on sale for right now for $ 3.00. Carefully touch the red probe to the connection in the bottom of the socket & the other to a good ground on the body. Have someone step on the brake, if you have power the problem is the socket ground, the metal connector on the side of the inside of the socket. With a pair of needle nose pliers you should be able to remove the connector to clean it & inspect it for corrosion. If it can't be cleaned to get a proper connection you may check a wrecking yard for a replacement. They can also be purchased at a dealer's parts house.

I have an 86 volvo, brake lights were working then suddenly not. Ive checked bulbs, wiring. Tale lights work, headlights work, but no brake lights. Please help .....sincerely, girl that doesnt know...

It coould be the brake light switch, the wiring or the bulb failure relay under the dash. You will need a test light and a wiring diagram to find the problem. If you can get someone knowledgable about cars to help you, I can send you a wiring diagram.

How do you change the brake light on chevrolet caprice 1992

Hello Friend:

To change your brake light on your Car is Done from inside your Trunk, You'll need to open trunk, and on either side there is a cover on the left and right side,That will be removeable.

Just remove the cover with your Hands and it will expose your Wiring to your bulbs and you'll see a metel socket that holds your Light Bulbs, Just turn or Pull that socket out that the Wiring goes to.

Now you can remove your bad bulb and replace it with a new one.

on a Caprice you'll have 2-3 Bulbs in the Lighting assembly just have someone Push down the Brake Pedal. So you can see the Light thats not Working.

This will get your Brake Light Working. Since its only 1- Bulb thats out Eliminates that you have a Bad Brake Light Switch. If both sides are out it could be your brake light swith.

2005 scion both tail lights out changed bulbs changed fuse still out

Your brake switch may need adjusting. Also,you may have bulb receptacles that are burned out, so the new bulbs won't light up. Your car was made between July 2004 to June 2005, so your car is about 5 years old, so something can either be warn out or burnt. Use a testlight at the brake light cluster while someone else pushes on the brake (car might need to be on). Good luck.

When brake pedal pressed side lights come on

hello zeeko1 , over here when that happens its because someone put a single element bulb where a double element bulb goes , now this bulb you take out to fix the problem , look at the bottom of the socket see if it has 1 contact point , then look into the hole where the bulb goes , i bet you see 2 contacts , this single contact bulb is shorting out into the other circuit back feeding voltage to other circuit . cheers mate !

Thanks for using FIX YA !

My brake lights wont come on on my 2003 chevy impala

Some cars have two brake switches under the dash. Try manually pushing the button on the switch while someone looks at the brake lights. It may just need adjusted. Good luck. Please rate me so I know how I'm doing. Thanks.
