There was a significan issue with brake lights on the early s-trucks from GM. I do not know if there was a recall on this issue, I do think so as it is safety related. If you have not taked your vehicle in for replacement lamp sockets to your dealer, I would suggest that you do. It should be free of charge. If you do not know if the vehicle has been repaired, the dealer can look it up in the GM service system under the vin code. I am not sure if they will do this over the phone for you, but it is worth the call.

Most brake lights end in parrallel grounds check them ... bad sockets and some cars have a module for the brake lights in the rear fender area looks like a pager or garage door opener if you find it unplug it and smell it if its burnt..

My brake lights don't turn on when i press the brake petal.


assuming fuses are ok and the new bulbs are the correct fitment(there are many different types) check the new pedal switch again.
some are adjustable for length. check when you push pedal down that the switch is NOT still in contact with the pedal. if it is then you may need to adjust it to make it shorter, sometimes just pulling the pedal upwards can be enough to do this.
good luck

I have a 1993 honda accord i just recently lost my brake lights i put in a new brake light switch and all of my brake lights started working except my right brake lights? please help


If you don't have power to the right brake light when the switch is engaged, I would check the turn signal switch. On some models the brake circuit goes thru the turn signal switch. Also be sure and check the ground connection on the bulb socket.

My running lights work my turn signals work why don't my brake lights


You either have a bad brake light switch or a bad fuse that powers your brake lights. Go to your fuse panel and check the fuse first. If it checks good then check the brake light switch. The switch will be located on the brake pedal at the top. There should be two wires into the switch. One will have power at all times. as you depress the brake pedal it makes the connection in the switch to the other wire which then sends power to the brake lights and illuminates the bulbs. Use an electrical tester to make sure you have power in and power out when the brake pedal is depressed.

Brake lights don't work. Bulbs, fuses and brake light switch all okay. Center brake light works and the running lighs work.


Filaments on actual bulbs might be burned out, pull the socket out from the back of the tailights and do a visual check on the bulbs, replace if needed...

This fuse is no.2 in the fuse box above the pedals and it should be a 15 amp.If you plugged a trailer in then check those electrics or check your brake light switch on the brake pedal.
