Question about 1996 Chevrolet Blazer

1 Answer

1996 Silverado. All 3 brake lights don't work. Flashers do.

Fuses have all been checked good. Bulbs work--because flashers work. Trailer plug mimicks the truck issue. Under the hood fuse box--we swapped the brake relay with the identical AC relay--no change. Switch on the brake pedal is very hard to access--doesn't seem likely that would be issue.

Brake lights and turn signal don't work???

turn on the emergency flashers(e-flashers)if they work check the bulbs at the same time.if this is good then check the may have a problem with the turn signal flasher needing replacing.this is a different flasher than that of the e-flasher,looks the same but a different flasher.usually located on or around the fuse panel under the dash.the brake light problem could be a misadjusted switch or a bad switch.the switch is at the base of the brake pedal and has two wires to wire will have power all the time and the other wire will only have power on it when the brake pedal is pushed.if not then the switch will need replacing.check for broken wires at the switch as these sometimes break causing a problem.

I have a stock trailer, have tail lights but no brake or stop. My problem is that I can only find one wire going to this unit. Seems to me there has to be a wire for each filament. What am I missing...

the bulbs are 2 filaments right? there has to be 2 wires unless there is a ground wire (3 wires) every trailer has to have a Running light, Left turn, right turn, and ground. th ebrake and turn signals work the same wires. you dont say what kind of truck you have, but some trucks have fuses for trailer lighting. put the 4 way flashers on and see whats wrong. if you have flashers you should have brake.

I have a 05 silverado all three break lights do not work. When I hook up my boat the break lights on my trailer function just fine. And all bulbs and fuses are good any ideas.

Have you checked the bulbs? Some people don't beleive all the lights can burn out at once but when one brake light is on they are all on and for the same amount of time.
If the bulbs are fine then check the connection where the trailer plug is to the main harness. Some of those connectors go between the main harness and the tail lights and the connector can go bad.

Brake lights

If you have an aftermarket trailer towing plug on it, that's where i would look first. Something is shorting out in there, or you have a broken wire or ground somewhere. Proabably near the back where gravel stones can hit.

1996 Chev Silverado K3500 dually, no brake lights

Check at the light socket in the rear, where your lights don't work. You need a test light or a voltage meter, and check to see that you have a groun there, power for your parking light, and power to the brake light. You should have power for the parking lights seeing that it works, and a ground. Just verify that your power for the brakes is getting to the bulb, or not. Just a good place to start.
And you are correct that if the third brake light works (top) your brake light switch is fine.

2000 Dodge Ram - No hazard flashers

Possibly blew out the hazard flasher unit. Check the flasher unit (usually there are 2, one for directionals and one for flashers).
