This is a common problem if all the wireing is good the next step is to replace the brake light switch located on the brake pedal arm.

SOURCE: 2001 dodge neon tail lights inop

looking at your schematics and , you say tail lights don't work , you didn't mention if front parking lights and license plate lights are working , they all come from the same source , a black /yellow wire , a good clue if front work and rear don't , please advise .if fronts work then you have a open circuit somewhere between junction S118 (near breakout for left headlamp) and rear sockets.

SOURCE: brake lights went out, changed bulbs, checked fuse, still wont work

You have to check the brake light switch which should be around the brake pedal on the upperside.
Ones located rremove the wires tht go to the switch and jump them by using a piece of wire, thn check if the brake lights come 'on'. If they do , thn its the switch tht may need replacing or even sometimes adjusting inorder to operate.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 1989 Toyota Camry. No brake lights.

It could be the relay, which is a yellow box located under the carpeting in the trunk on the left side. It is a problem common to your model. Also, check the brake switch's (behind the brake pedal) functionality (12V present with key at ACC or ON and continuity between wires when button engaged).

i hope this helps

If the break lights in my 1986 c corvette works but the tail lights do not, what could be the cause


Blown fuse ,bad headlight switch,or wiring issue.
the tail lights have there own fuse and are powered through headlight switch. Do the front running lights come on? If none of them work, switch could be bad if front work and rears dont, check bulbs and power to them when lights are on

Brake Lights


I just had this problem! I actually replaced the brake light switch, which is located up and under the dash by the brake. It cost only about 12 bucks at Autozone and is really easy to install. I sugguest plenty of lights and a small flat tip screw driver. Also, I cleaned all of my lights contacts in the rear light assembly with a metal file. Once I did all of this and checked my fuses voila!!! Lights! I hope this helps, it worked for me and I estimated it saved me about $250 bucks including labor at the local rip-off chrysler dealership.
