Question about 2001 Chevrolet Astro

1 Answer

My 2001 Astro van does not have brake lights, the top led brake light works, but the others do not. The turn signals/parking lights work, no brake lights. Where should I start looking? Could this be at the switch or is it more likely a wiring problem after the led brake light, but before the main brake lights?

The problem is probably your turn signal switch. I know it sounds weird, but the brake lights work through the switch. If the third brake light works, then the brake light switch works, the turn signal switch works the lower brake lights. It's the switch under the steering wheel inside the column...not the easiest or cheapest thing to replace, but should fix your problem. If you decide to do it yourself, tie some wire to the connecter on the end of the switch wires at the bottom of the column...that way when you pull the wires up throught the column, you can use the wire you tied to them to pull the new connector and wires back down through the column.

My brake and hazard lights don't work on my 2001 Chevy Astro Van. Turn signals work fine, running lights work, and the top brake light works fine. Replaced bulbs, no change, fuses are fine. Where do I look...


Buy a cheap multimeter and measure your voltage at the bulb when the brake lights are supposed to be on. You should have 12vdc. Is your 3rd brake light and brake lights on the same fuse? If not, measure to see if you have 12vdc at the fuse itself.

Sound like a bad turn signal switch. I would bet if you wiggled the switch in just the right position the brake lights would turn on.

Try pulling the fuse or the relay marked DRL (Daytime Running Lamps). More than likely each headlamp has its own fuse and relay.

Also, ensure that your headlamps work when you turn on the switch!

95 chevy astro van no brake lights


Check the stop light switch on the top of the brake pedal arm inside the vehicle. It may be stuck but can be checked very easily. Push the button in and out... should go smoothly and turn the lights on when depressed. Cheap to fix if that's it...
