Left Hand only SIgnal and Brake lights on a 2008 chev 3500 cutaway not working


Turn signal/ multifunction switch. Replace it. All the exterior lights run threw it except the high mount brake light. Check the brake lights. If the high mount works and the others don't . That is a sure sign.

Turn signal,brake lights not working


I would check for voltage at the turn signal switch. The brake lights go thru the turn signal switch, except for the high mount light.

My 199 Ford Expedition-Left turn signal and brake light in rear does not work. I had the buld changed last Sat. And it was working for almost a week...But now I was told by a friend that is not working...


It is very common for the light bulb socket to become minorly burned. You need to replace the socket. They are less than 10$. Hope this helps. TJ

2001 Town & country brake lights not working, but the third brake light and tail lights are working. I also just replaced the brake light switch thinking it was the problem, but it wasnt


I think the brake light and turn signal are on the same bulb on these, correct?

If so do the turn signals work?

If they do than I would bet that the turn signal switch itself is the problem. The power for the brake lights is routed through the switch (except for the third brake light that is supplied power directly form the brake switch). The turn signal switch will interrupt power from the brake switch and supply power from the turn signal flasher depending on if the right or left turn signal is engaged.

Sometimes wiggleing the lever or pushing the four way flasher button with the brake pedal depressed will intermittantly cuase the brake lights to work. If this is the case than it is the turn signal switch that is causing the problem.

Jaguar xj6 break light cancels signal


Replace the turn signal switch. Bad contact inside causing a crossing of the circuits. When the turn signal is applied it should open the brake light circuit allowing for just the signal to work. Doesn't sound like the switch is doing it's job.

99 Chevy Tahoe... Rear turn signals, brake lights, and hazards


I had this problem, and to be honest, it happened to the left side about a week later...it's the board that the bulbs plug into...it's a very common problem with this model. So popular that you can normally get the socket board off the shelf at a parts store! it's extremely simple to replace, and I replaced all the bulbs at the same time!
