Your brakes are prob. worn out. Worn brakes = bad braking performance. When the brake linings are worn out, the brake fluid level goes down so far (as the pistons have to push further to stop the car) that the low brake fluid warning light comes on.

If the brakes are so bad you have to push "very hard" this is a serious safety issue. Please get it corrected before some kid walks out in front of you.

You might wanna have your rear brakes checked along with the rear brake calipers or cylinders, as well as the rear drums or discs, depending on weather your car has rear drum brakes or rear discs brakes. Some cars come equipped with brake sensors that let you know when theres a problem. It would also be a good idea to check you brake fluid level.

Fuses keep burning out; rear lights don't come on when brakes are applied. Is there a connection between these two problems?


There is a problem with your question
from what you say the brake lights do not come on when the brakes are applied --that would most likely be a faulty brake light switch
The fuse blows when the hand brake is applied indicates a short after the hand brake switch before the brake indicator in the dash that lets you know the hand brake is applied
you say that the rear light come on when the light switch is turned on--does the fuse blow then , when the brakes are applied or only when the hand brake is applied
a clearer question with a lot of detail ( make , model year , engine size etc)will get a closer answer

Only the front brakes on my 2008 town and country appear to be applying


Have the proportioning valve checked on it. This valve reduces braking power to the rear brakes under hard braking to keep the rear brakes from locking up due to less weight on rear wheels. When malfunctioning it can cause the rears to not apply at all.

Third eye works no rear signal or brake lights


The high mount brake light gets its own signal from the brake light switch (on the brake pedal). Or at least the wire leaving the brake light switch will splice, one wire to the high mount brake light, and the other for the rear brake lights is routed through the turn signal switch, and coordinated there with the turn signal wires to the rear brake lights. The brake wires and turn signal wires share the same wire, and same filament in the bulbs. It is kind of complicated, but brakes applied with no turn signal, brake light wire goes from brake light switch through the turn switch and out to the bulbs. If brakes applied with turning signal, non blinking brake light wire goes from turn switch to rear light, while the turning signal wire will go through the flasher relay, and then to the rear light to cause blinking.

I hope that makes sense. It appears the problem may be in the turn signal switch for both the turn signals and the rear brake lights.

No brake lights (bulb works when lights are on), no rear turn indicator lights(front turn indicators are working and rear bulbs do not appear to be blown)


The first thing i would check is the stop safety switch located under the brake pedal or brake pedal arm. If this piese has failed there will be no current to the brake lights when you apply the brakes

It sounds as if you have a bad earth to either one or both of your rear light clusters. If it only happens when you indicate in one direction then that is the offending side.

Rear brakes wont apply consistantly


1- brake system low on fluid,
2- improperly bled (air in lines).
3- Master cylinder (applies equal pressure to all 4 cylinders) is bad.
