SOURCE: Problems with brake lights on my 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

YES -- process of elimination. Obviously there's a short circuit in the Brake/Headlight circuits - right? Blown fuse(s) is/are evident of this -- would you agree? Which fuse(s) is/are blowing? An analysis tells you that the only time a fuse blows is when the headlamps are turned on -- correct? Otherwise, brake lights work normally -- right? OK. Head lamps have relays which turn them on. Here's a wiring diagram of the 2000 Hyundai Sonata (NOT the Jeep Grand Cherokee)
7a9e354.jpg a663f53.gif It would appear the problem is with one or more bulbs or sockets or both. As you many notice, there are no connections between the headlamps and brake lamps except the parking lamps (which share the bulbs/sockets)
c7068ec.gif When the headlamps are turned on, so does the tail lamp relay. As you can see, these bulbs/sockets are 'DUAL' filament to ground (series-parallel circuit). Just a guess here - the short is in one of the lower rear brake/parking lamp bulbs/sockets.... just a guess.

SOURCE: Hyundai Excel brake lights stay

Mine does the same and I am currently getting it fixed.
Basically the brake pedal, when not depressed, is placed against a switch which turns off the brake light (even when the car is not on). There is a rubber disc that connects the two, which in my car has disintegrated into bits. If I stuff things between the two (like the crumbling bits of the rubber disc) the brake lights turn off, but as soon as I use the brakes again, the bit I stuffed in falls out. You can look at it yourself, but it is in a difficult spot around the top of the brake pedal.
At this stage I am been advised that I must replace the whole switch, but I am contemplating finding an improvised solution (like tap washers) as it seems a simple problem to fix.

B LIGHTS NO WORK


"B" lights? You mean brake lights? Could be the brake light switch. I'd start there. It's fairly easy to replace. To check the brake switch, remove it, and see if the piece that pushes in is stuck be gently pressing on it and if it doesn't press in, gently pull on it to see if comes out. If it doesn't not freely move, that is probably your issue. The brake pedal assembly presses it in when you step on it. For a 2004 Forenza, the part # is 37740-85Z22. If you have a 2005 - 2008 Forenza, the part # is 37740-86Z21. Both are under $20.

Signals and brake lights work when the vehicle lights are off , but when the vehicle lights come on my right turn , right brake , and right running lights don't work at all


I would render a guess that there's a bad ground somewhere. If you have the service manual, or a recent Chiltons, there may be a usable wiring diagram. You'll need a wiring diagram like that to troubleshoot. Otherwise, you'll be lost.

Brake Lights all of a sudden not working on my 1995 Tahoe. Checked fuses and lights. Neither burnt out.


The turn signal switch and the hazard switch are likly places to look. To checjk the fuses is'nt to take them out and look at them but to test to see if power will go though them, I use a test light ( a tool that looks like an ice pick with a wire coming out of the handle and the handle is clear with a light bulb inside). with the clip connected to a good ground as you touch the back sides of the fuses the light will light if it only lights on one side, the fuse is blown ( does'nt matter what it looks like ) a bad fuse can look good. the turn signal switch is involved as is the Hazard switch. If you pusth the hazard switch and the lights light good then you know that the lights and the sockets are good. You also know that the wires are good . With the key on the turn signals should work front and back ( thier different cicruits) If only working in the front the turn signal switch is bad provided the hazards worked all the way around. Does the high mount stop light work? It works off of it's own circuit on the brake light switch and if no lights work your back to the fuses only after you checked to see if the high mount bulbs are good. Your car is plenty old enough to have them be burnt out. If the high mount doesn't work with the bulbs known to be good and then you check with the test light to see if the power isd getting to the brake light switch. One wire is hot with the key off and another comes hot with the key on ( the cruze control switch in the brake light).

The brake lights won't go out. I pulled the fuse so the battery doesn't go dead, but can't figure out why they are staying lit.


on your brake pedal there is a switch that controls your brake lights over time it comes to lose just enough for the switch won't come in contact with the pedal

Hi: I have a 1998 Chevy Blazer 4.3 The brake lights and turn signals don't work.... HELP


Sounds like you have a bad multiple function turn signal switch. A couple things to try With your foot pressing on the brake pedal, Press the four way flasher button up and down, press and hold it down, pull up on it, or wiggle it. If the brake lights come on during any one of those replace the switch. With the key in the run position pull, push, the turn signal lever slightly. If the turn signal or brake lights start to work replace the switch. Let me know if none of those work, they usually do, and I'll get you some more in depth diagnostic info.

No brake lights on my 02 blazer, i have running, turn, and hazard lights. replaced brake switch and nothing still. theres a auto start system on the truck that came on it when bought used. its hacked in...


Check for 12 volts coming into the brake light switch. If you have that you should have 12 volts exiting the switch when the brake pedal is depressed. If you have that and the center brake light works you have a problem with the turn signal. If the center light doesn't work you probably have an open in the brake light circuit between the turn signal switch and light bulbs. If there is no voltage at the brakelight switch you have an open circuit before the switch. I'm assuming the fuse is good.
