Check your brake light switch. If your car has cruse control, set it at a safe speed and step lightly on the brake pedal and release. If it doesnt disengage then brake light switch is bad.

I just bought the car the turn signals work in the front but not in the back whats the problem?


Have you checked the bulbs already?
Don't know what kind of car you are dealing with here.
Most vehicles - the brake lights and rear turn signals share the same electrical circuit to the rear tailights. Usually the turn signal switch will separate which signal goes to the back.
Do your brake lights work? Is there a High mounted stop lamp and does it work?
I have seen a Hazard Switch be ON and fuse blown causing the Hazard Flasher to be inop - which prevented the turn signals from working. Turning OFF the hazard flasher brought back the T/S.
Check the rest of the lights - see what does and doesn't work - and do the front turn signals flash? Stay On? Or flash really slow?
Let me know what you find out and if this helps you at all.

Sounds like your multifunction control switch needs replaced. Its location is on your steering colum.

No turn signals,brake lights. have tails lights. all fuses in fuse box under check out ok


The turn signals and the brake lights go through the hazard switch. Try cycling it a few times and see if that solves the problem. If the fuses are good and the 4way's don't work, I would suspect that switch.

Tail lights, parking lights and dashboard lights on 2004 grand marquis are inoperative. Headlights, turn-signal lights, brake lights, hazard lights, back-up lights all work


Tail lights, parking lights and dash lights are all on the same circuit...I'd go to the fuse panel under the dash and check the fuse for those lights....usually referred to as accessory lighting in the owners manual and is usually a 10A fuse.

Hope this helps...

I have a 98 eclipse. I was putting new tail lights on and then the signals stopped working along with the brake lights. the fuse to the brake lights had burnt so I replaced it. The signals however are...


IF THE TURN SIGNALS STILL WORK IN THE FRONT, THAT MEANS THE FUSE & THE FLASHER ARE OK. IF THE SIGNALS DON'T WORK AT ALL CHECK TURN SIGNAL FUSE & STOP / BRAKE FUSE. ARE YOU SURE THE CORRECT BULBS ARE BEING USED?

88 olds cutlass, no brake lights


Your brake light circuit runs thru your turnsignal switch if your hazard switch is on your column I have seen numerous inop brake lights caused by faulty turn signal switches.
