    I had my mechanic look and unfortunately it could be a shortage in your swich, maybe wires are crossed or grounded. The issue I am having I have no dash lights and no tail lights. My fuse blows violently so I believe unfortunatley they will have to get to my wire harness and check it out from there. Hope yours goes better then mine.

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.

How do i fix the brake lights on my mercury sable. all the other lights work fine


Does your car have the `lamp out'indicator system? It's more complicated.
My manual shows fuse #28 , a 15 amp fuse powers the brake bulbs.Is this the one you changed?
A bulb can be out for a long time and you don't notice it,then the other burns out and you think they both went out at the same time,but they might not have,see?
So check the bulbs and make sure you got that brake switch installed correctly. don-ohio (:^)

Lowbeam headlights wont work, brake lights are out and check engine light is on...changed th dimmer switch, no luck


For the low beam problem, Swap relays 45 & 46 in the underhood fuse panel. Relay 46 is for the Low Beams. If that fixes the light, replace the relay that cam out of position 46.
Since the high mounted brake light is working, that indicates that the brake switch is good. You need to check the bulbs in the rear tail light assembly, if they are good, check fuse #34.

Brake lights wont work


Hi. Check for blown fuse inside the fuse box expecially for the brake light fuse. if fuse are ok, check the bulbs. If bulbs are working fine then this could be a wiring problem.

Brake lights wont work! All others do!


I just had the same problem on my '04 Silverado. All it was was corrosion in the socket/bulb. Put some dialectic grease on both the bulbs and worked them in and out a couple of times and now they work fine. Was weird that they both went out suddenly and together but I guess they are made exactly the same.

Right brake light out; tail light works fine


most rear tail lights and turn/stop lights are the same dual filiment bulb. it is possible for your tail light to work and your brake light not to and still have a bad bulb. I would check the bulb first, your brake light works on the left yes? this would mean that the fuse is fine

Check the brake light switch located under the dash, and is energized by depressing the brake pedal.
