Going to sound strange. Check for a problem with the signal switch in the steering column.

Check the fuses under the hood, 99% of the time that's what the problem is.

HOW TO WIRE BRAKE LIGHTS FROM THIRD LIGHT 97 MONTE CARLO


Instead of improvising, why not get the stop lamps working the way they should be. You must be getting power through 15A fuse 23 in the fuse block and the stop lamp switch, otherwise the high mounted stop lamps would not work. Stop lamp power is routed through the turn signal switch and is applied to the tail/turn/stop-lamps. That should solve your problem

96 monte carlo rear window brake light works but not brake lights. tail lights work, blinkers work, replaced brake switch and bulbs still not working


This is a common GM specific problem. Your turn signal switch contains an elaborate networking device that has to cancel brakelights while running a turn light. Often times the ground within the turn signal switch is lost causing your situation. After investigating such other possibilities as fuses and loose grounds it may become necessary to replace the turn signal switch. Thank you, Dana

Brake lights dont work but third brake light does and all other lights work


Sounds like either both bulbs need replaced or a wiring problem. Check bulbs first if they are fine use a test light to see if there is current to the bulb if no current trace back to see where current stops and repair. Also if you have current check your groundsfor the brake lights.

1998 Chevy Monte Carlo. Brake lights won't work.


you give some good clues. because your third brake light works but not the other two, and because you sometimes get brake lights if you have turn signals on at the same time, i would say that some wires got crossed up with your other taillights. check out the power wires back in the taillight assembly and the wires that run back to the taillights. something is mixed up back there, now you just have to find it. if all else fails after you isolate which wires are the brake light wires get some new wire, same gauge and roughly same length, remove a bit of insulation but don't cut the wire in two, and put the new wire in as an overlay. if having the new piece of wire there makes the brake light work you found the break in the wire. you can cut out the bad piece and fasten the new piece in. you can solder it if you have the equipment to do that, or you can buy some squeeze in place connectors at the car parts store. either way, good idea to tape it up when you are done. hope that helps

Brake lights don't work


check the multi function switch. I hava a 96 chevy monte carlo and I had the same problem . I changed the multi function switch and the brakes lights now work. the rear brake lights run thru the switch on the turn signal circuit. try it and see.

I have a 1995 monte carlo and the brakelights wont work but the brakelight in the back glass works we changed the brake light switch and that didn't work


Have you checked to see if the ground wire from the brake light harness in the trunk came off, broke or loosened up? The third brake light has it's own ground wire. That's why it still works. Have you checked the fuse? Just throwing some suggestions out there. Best wishes to ya.

No taillights, brake lights or turn signals


This is usually caused by a defective multifunction switch, see it quite allot, the clue is the 3rd brake light, it is on a separate fuse and does not run through the multifunction switch on the steering column.
