You'll have to follow the wiring to find the short to ground. You may need a wiring diagram to know what to look at.
It could be in one of the tail lamp sockets, or in the wiring harness.

SOURCE: No tail lights on 1991 Chevy Silverado. fuse is good

sounds like a broken wire in the harness. look around the bumper area,sometimes along the frame. may have to peel back some tape covering. also if you have a trailer harness look closely at those.

SOURCE: Brake lights don't work. Replaced bulbs, checked

Yes, you need to of course check the voltage coming into and going out of the brake light switch, if 12 Volts are there going out and coming in while pressing on the brake pedal, your brake lights aren't getting a good ground or there is a break in the circuit between that switch & the lights.

On occasion the tail lights will work with a weak ground circuit where the Brake lights won't. Best way to determine this is to just hook up the 12 volt tester to the Brake light hot wire & there at the bulb ground, then in an area away from the bulb that has a good possibility of contact/ground.

Really that's it, if the 12Volts is getting to the bulb but it isn't lighting, if you aren't getting the voltage there and the brake switch is hot on both sides when pressed, the break in voltage will have to be traced from that switch to the tail light to find the problem.

good luck.

SOURCE: 2003 Chevy Silverado SS brake lights aren't

Sounds like the turn signal flasher module has gone bad. It controls the brake lights and turn signals. It is located under the drivers side of the dash. If is a rectangular black box with a grey connector and 8 or so wires connected to it.

On my 2008 Subaru Outback, my rear tail lights are on as they normally would be, however, when I step on the brake, the brake lights do not come on (for both left and right), but the spoiler brake light...


There are a few items to check: Fuses [ should be listed as stop, or brake light ] there's a reason if blown, Bulbs [ they have an average life span, you may have 2 that happened to burn out at the same time ], Wireing [ may have a cut or broken wire in a harness in the rear or a trailer light harness problem if equiped.]

Push brake paddle no brake light


The brake lights are not working due to fault in brake light fuse. Or the other reason is fault in wirings if the fuse is checked out OK. If both the brake light fuse and wirings checked out OK then its time to check the brake light switch. To find the switch follow the brake pedal up and look for a small black plastic switch with a small wire bundle going to it. Grab hold of the switch and gently try to push up or down on it. Many a times moving the switch solves the problem in other cases the brake light switch needs to be replaced. Thanks.

My brake lights arent working!


Normally you'll find a brake switch at arm of brake pedal, up under dash. Switch should have 12v going in one side, when pedal not pushed, and both sides when pedal is pushed.
