Could be 1 of 2 things. a wiring issue, or the bulbs may simply need to be pulled out and contacts cleaned. sometimes the bulbs contacts will wear or get a film of humidity on them causing them to intermittenly come on and off.

98 chevy lumina Rear window break light works, but rear break lights don't, also right turn don't work?


I can almost 100% guaranty the turn signal switch is the problem. Power for the brake lights starts at the brake switch. power then splits from there and the third brake light gets power directly from the brake switch. Since the turn signal and the brake lights are on the same bulb power for the brake lights is routed through the turn signal switch. the switch depending on what position it is in will allow brake power or turn signal power to there respective left or right brake/turn bulbs.

If you hold your foot on the brake pedal and wiggle the turn signal and or play with the hazard switch the brake lights will almost always intermittently start to work. this will confirm a bad turn signal switch which is pretty common on GM vehicle with this style setup.

No brake lights i have turn signals and headlights and backing up lights but no center brake lights and no brighter left and no brighter right brake light. again all my lights work except when i hit the...


This is most likely to be your brake switch near your foot pedal then. They can come lose, or just break completely, rare, but it happens.
Get down on the floor and check up behind your brake pedal, it should look fairly obvious where it is then.
Good luck with it.

Brake light, reverse light and turn signal issues


Hello. The symptoms you are describing are likely due to a poor ground. Temporarily install a new ground wire by securing a piece of copper wire to the frame with a self tapping screw. Use this ground wire along with the hot wire to see if each of these lights works. If it does, trace the ground wire back to the frame, unscrew it and clean up the metal with emery cloth so you reestablish a good ground.

2000 Dodge Grand Caravan Brake Lights Out


Kristie, I don't know if you ever found a solution to this, but I have been having the same problem. I even took it to get repaired and they fixed it saying it was a relay. I think now that they just replaced the brake switch as well. Then, a few months after that, the left light went out. I have checked fuses, replaced bulbs and the brake switch. There is not much more to the system besides the wiring from the front to the back. I then decided to lodge the brake pedal so the brake lights were on, took the assembly out and twisted the light holder as if to take it out, then twisted it back and presto, the brake light came on! So I deduce there is a flaw in the design of the brake light assembly and that the contacts lose their connection the to contact ring of something of this nature. It only seems to affect the rake light, not the turn signals or running lights. Odd.Only time will tell how long this will last.
If you get this, or anyone else see's this, I hope it helps.

Brake lights do not work, all other lights work.


My fiancee' followed Ron's instruction, on where to find the brake light switch, and was finally able to locate it, get it out, and replace it with a new one. I now have brake lights. He had been looking all morning for the switch but could not find it, and he is an ace mechanic, so thanks to Ron for his expert advice. You guys are the greatest!!

1990 Volvo DL Sedan Brake Lites Work but Also Come on With Running Lites


Is there a switch on the left side of the dash that has a red lens and a wavy line across it? If so, you have a rear fog light switch and it has been activated, causing your brake lights to come on each time you turn your headlights on. Flip the switch and the rear lights should display only the parking lights with the headlights on.

I had the same problem with my 2001. I found it was the multi function switch. Better known as your turn signal switch. I found that the hazard switch portion of it had shorted. replacement is fairly easy, aftermarket part is available, much cheaper than GM.
