The brake switch tells the shifter lock system that you have your foot on the brake so it can go into gear-so this must be working in the old switch-how many wires are connected to the brake switch-follow the wires up under the dash to see if anything has been cut or rubbed through- Denny

SOURCE: no dash lights and no tail lights

Check for faulty wires at the fuse block, had one fall off from the block itself from the rear, or it could be a wire break somewhere along the way.

Stop Lights and Blinkers are independant fuse.

Tail lights are on there own fuse and could be a wire break in the rear or removing the bulb and using a metre check for signal at bulb socket where trouble is, Check for disolored connections, Green in color or simular, could be a bad connection which in turn is not letting the curent to other side, Causing a short and loss of power to all remaining lights in curcuit.

SOURCE: tail lights out

If your front parking lights come on, you have a wiring issue, or body control module issue. If neither front or rear come on, I would suspect the switch.

SOURCE: driving/fog light not working and bulbs are good. So is fuse.

Check the headlight or fog light relay, I believe located in the fuse box. It could be bad.

Have you checked for power at the sockets? How about power out of the turn signal switch? Is the third brake light also not working? If that bulb is good and there is no power at the socket than you have a bad break light switch. Check for power in and out of the switch with the brake pedal depressed. You can also unplug the brake light switch and jump it to confirm the lights work.

I can get you the wire colors if you need them.

I have a 1999 Audi A6 quattro my right brake light went out I went to to switch the bulb and the bulb was OK but wont come on now I can't put my shift gear into gear without turning my lights on


There's should be a shift interlock that prevents it from being put into gear unless the brakes are on; check if the fuse it good for the brake lights; it seems to somehow be tied in with the parking lights, which may be feeding into the brake light circuit.

Column shifter would not shift. Brake lights aren't working due to blown fuse. When trying to replace the fuse the fuse gets real hot and melts.


you have a short circuit in the brake light circuit or the shift interlock circuit.

Look under the dash at the switch on the brake pedal arm and see if it is burned looking or the wiring is frayed and shorting out.

For emergency, there is an over ride for the shift interlock so you can get car to a shop. Look up shift interlock in index of owner manual for over ride procedure.

I think you turn key to OFF position, step on brake, and pull shifter into neutral. Start car in Neutral, put in gear, drive away.

Remember, you have no bake lights.

Also, check brake light bulbs and sockets in tail lights. A bulb or socket could be shorted.

please rate, thanks

When I push the brake pedal no brake lights. I changed the bulbs. The lights all work when the hazard lights are on so I know the bulbs are good. I also checked the fuse it is also good. What do I...


find a guy with a good flashlight and have him look up under your dashboard. put your hand on the brake pedal, you will feel an arm which it is attached to, goes up behind the dash. high enough on the arm to avoid being kicked you will find a switch attached to that arm. it has a long life push button operation. most likely the plug has come off or the switch has died. this brake light switch is a very common item, fitting millions of GM products, so you should be able to get one cheaply at any parts store. now get that guy back and give him a 12 pack of beer to remove the old switch and put the new one in. it most likely has a simple snapping clamp-on plastic fastener, closely exmaining the new one should reveal the mystery of removing the old one.

Get yourself a cheap multimeter and a 12v test lamp. Start checking what has power and what does not. Follow your wires where you can. Check all the connectors. Use it to double check your fuse and your new switch.

Make sure the negative contacts on your brake lights have a good earth. The continuity or ohms meter on the multimeter is good for this.

Sounds like you have done a good job so far. When you have check all the possible problems check the impossible ones :)

You have a bad switch at the brake pedal. Or a loose wire. Try light pulling on the wires on the switch at the brake pedal under the dash. They should be tight and secure. If tight and secure the switch could be bad.
