The neutral switch needs replaced. It cost me about $350. It also cured a non-starting issue.

I have a 92 Buick roadmaster. How do i get my brake lights to work on the rear of my car? The light in the window works fine including all the rest of my lights. I've changed the brakes switch and bulbs...

The lower brake lamps are wired through the turn signal switch. The hi-mount brake lite is wired differently. Do the rear turn signals work? If so, I think the problem is the turn signal switch. Your lower brake lites and turn signal use the same bulb filament, just not at the same time. Just my opinion.

Can anyone tell me how can I fix my back lights from my astro van 1999 I turn the switch on the front works but not the back

Check the tail light fuse and check the bulbs. most likely have dual element bulbs so make sure both are good.

Rear fog light not working.2004 toyota rav4

I guess that your refering to the backup lights? They have their own fuse and aren't imune to having the bulbs burnt out. The bulbs are easiest to check as they may be black in color or knocked out of their holders. The back up light switch is part of the neutral start switch and they will have other problems like no start if it's bad. wiring and their plugs are also possible mainly if the car as been in an accident or other bending action.

96 Chevy Lumina, failed inspection because of no brake lights in rear on either side, middle brake light work but, not brake lights on back of car. Tried checking fuses and even changed bulb, still no...

replace the turn signal switch in the column.its also known as a multifunction switch. you have to remove the cover around the steering column to access the switch. The brake light wiring also goes to this switch.

That is your problem, the backup switch, it is on the side of the transmission.

Gauge lights and tail lights do not come on unless brake pedal is pressed

Hi ...... the brake pedal circuit is 'live' even when the ignition is switched off. Its sounds like you have a 'short' between the brake circuits and the rest, my guess would be at the back of the car. Have you had any work done lately ? Or heavy object in the boot/trunk ? Check ither side of the boot/trunk (behind or near rear lights) for chaffed, broken or melted wires. Make up a simple bulb testing lamp, one 12v bulb with a wire on positive and one on negative and place these wires into/on the wires going to your rear lights (neg' to earth) ......... this will tell you if the circuit has power going to it and by going back along the route you'll pinpoint the damaged or problem area. First step is to make sure both rear light clusters have good earthing points.
Let us know how you get on.

Brake lights on saab 900 2.3 95 model year

If there is no brake lite switch on the arm of the brake pedal then look to see if there are two wires hanging down with a plug on them, as perhaps the previous owner removed the brake lite switch with the intentions of replacing it and just never got around to it.
