SOURCE: 2002 yukon no brake lights but third brake light works

ed7882 I had the same exact problem and thought it was a fuse or the wiring. Come to find out it was just a blown bulb. They are inline together with the cruise so if one blows it all goes. So change out the lights and that should fix it for you.

SOURCE: 2002 Chevy Blazer, rear brake lights do not work

I had a similar problem and when i went to the auto electric place the guy said its a brake switch next to the brake pedal which is not working. He took it out and fixed it. Now its all fine.

SOURCE: how to replace the third brake light...

There 2 screws holding on the cover. Remove the 2 screws pull off cover. To remove the light bulb twist it to the left or right. It will only twist one way to get it out of the socket that it is in.

You've checked the obvious items and the fact that the high level lamp works proves that the brake lights switch works.

That means it must be a wiring fault, most likely a connector which has come apart (partially or fully) or which has corrosion on the terminals.

Look at the brake switch which is mounted just above the brake pedal and identify the wiring colour.

Now take panels off inside the boot (US= trunk) and identify the same colour/pattern wire. As you trace it, one junction will send a feed to the third light, the other will feed the remaining two lights. Undo the connector, check for corrosion (anything other than bright metal is corrosion, if you see corrosion clean it off back to bright metal) and refasten it together. Check the brake lamps.
If not working trace the wire all the way to each lamp and check for other connectors and give them the same treatment.

If all that is fruitless, then check for a single wire which leaves each cluster and goes to a screw or bolt directly into the vehicle body. This will be the earth return (US = ground return) part of the circuit. Undo the connection to the body and clean off any corrosion back to clean bright metal. It's unlikely to be the earth return though, as the indicators (US= turn signal lights also wouldn't be working as the return is common to both circuits.

Antilock, braction, traction lights on the dash

It is none of the speed sensors.The 1214 is system contact or coil open.The 1248 is for the ebcm turned light on.These 2 are for the electronic brake control module.The 1245 is for the low tire pressure.And the 1287 is for the steering wheel position sensor.What you should do first is clear the codes and road test the vehicle.When the light comes back on check and see what codes came back.The electronic brake control module is for the antilock brakes and the traction control.When you get the codes after driving the vehicle post back with them and I can help you with whatever codes you have.Good luck.

Check to see if the third brake light works. The brake switch works both the crusie and the 3rd brake light

How to remove and replace upper brake light on 2002 GMC Yukon.

Problem, which has been fixed, was with a 2002 Yukon, not a 2004 Escalade. Removing two screws below the upper or third brake light allows you to remove and replace the LED assembly.
