Brake lights went out. Checked bulbs and fuse, both are ok. What else could it be?

    Next most likely option would be the brake light switch. Look near the top and behind the brake pedal. This can be tested if you have a multimeter.



    More help?, let me know.

If the tail lights are still working the problem is probably the brake light switch. It could be bad of just have disconnected wires. Normally it would be located at the top of the brake peddle arm under the dash, but some put them on the master brake cylinder under the hood in front of the driver. To test disconnect the two wires and put them together with the ignition on. Have someone watch if the lights come on. Good luck.

SOURCE: Left rear brake light stopped working but bulb and fuses are OK.

take the bulb back out have someone sit in car apply brake get your self a circuit tester and check to see if this circuit is carrying efficient 12 volt current! some times in cold weather these bulbs get hot with long period of breaking and when released condensate and rust begins and you get what you have perhaps bad socket! this would be a ideal location to begin and probably end,

SOURCE: rear brake lights not working checked bulbs and

Check the brake light switch (aka stop light switch) located on the upper portion of the brake pedal. It has one plug in wire on it, if it's bad, you have no brake lights, not an expensive part.

SOURCE: brake lights not working,

Assuming the wiring to the brake lights is serviceable, you will find that the brake light switch, which is activated by the brake pedal for the brake lights, will have failed and will need to be replaced.


Just ensure you first replace the fuse and both brake light bulbs as an initial step and then re-check to ensure you still have no lights.

My additional brake light is not working i have tested the brake unit and that works is there a seperate fuse for this or is it all on one fuse for all the brake lights


The third or High Mounted Brake Light runs straight off the brake light switch on the brake pedal arm. You say you tested the "brake unit"? I assume you mean the third brake light assembly, and if you get power there when someone steps on the brake pedal, then the bulbs are bad.

The power flow for the brake lights goes like this: Fuse ->Brake switch -> Turn signal switch -> Rear lights. The only difference is, if you have a 3rd brake light in your rear window, that gets its power directly from the brake switch. It does not go thru the signal switch first. So, if you are having a brake light problem, and your fuses are good, check the 3rd light in the rear window, if it lights up (assuming the bulbs are good, no one ever changes them), then the problem is most likely in the turn signal switch, hope this helps!

Left rear brake light stopped working but bulb and fuses are OK.


These are Dual Function Bulbs. They control the Parking Lights and the Brake Lights. This Bulb is Burnt out on the Brake Coil inside the Bulb. I have actually seen Bulbs that were Bad But you could not Tell by jast looking at them. It should be fine with a New Bulb. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
