'60 Buick Brake Light Not Working

I have a 1960 Buick LeSabre that I recently purchased.  Today someone pulled up beside me and said that my brake lights weren't working.  I've checked the turn signal lights and taillights and they work, but the brake lights won't come on when brakes are pressed.  I thought perhaps it might be a fuse problem...

Also, when I opened the back compartment near the light to check wiring, there I found two small wooden boxes that had wires attached... What in the world could that be,,, certainly not factory stock..  Do they go to the flamethrower exhausts perhaps???

Any help greatly appreciated

First, let me say that the wooden boxes are a mistery. Have not got a clue.

As for the brake lights. If the lights work with the headlights on and the directional signals work, then look for the switch not working. It is usually located directly over the brake pedal, but farther up inside the dash.
Sometimes the directional signal can cause the same thing. The brake light system runs throught the directional signal system. This is how you can have on light flashing while the other is solid red, when braking with the signal on.

Brake light on


2 things cause this 1 is the parking brake is not fully released 2nd is that the brakes were bleed incorrectly and the proportioning valve switch has slid forward turning on the light if your brakes were repaired recently the you can try to reset the valve by stopmping on the pedal hard 4 or 5 times if this does not work you will have to take it to a shop to have the position rod reset now understand this is for the red brake light not the abs light

2000 buick lesabre wont release out of parkwhen brake peddle is step on


Check if the brake lights light.
The switch that controls the brake lights also controls the release mechanism for the shifter.
The switch is located up on the brake pedal under the dash

Rear brakes need ajustment on Buick Lesabre


I don't know if this works on a Buick but I have had two cars that the auto adjusters worked when you used the parking brake, I rarely use the parking brake so I got in the habit of working the parking brake 20 times or so at oil change time.

1993 Buick Lesabre Brake Lights & Signal


I hate to tell you this but its going to be a tough issue to find. You will need to check all the light bulbs are the correct bulb. Make sure they are correct not what was in there. I would check the brake switch on the brake pedal to make sure it is ok. then you will need to trace all the wires to find the short.

No brakes in my 1998 buick leSabre


running master low enought for brake light to come on, you might have got air into system, if that is the case you will have to bleed out the breaks. worse case, it would need a new master cyl.
