Hello

With regards to the brake lights, you need to replace your brake switch located under your brake pedal.

With regards to spongy pedal, sounds like air in the line you need to bleed the brakes via the bleed nipple on each caliper and check your brake fluid.

hope this helps.

Thanks

Hello gary823

Thank you for choosing fixya.com.

First things first: I suggest taking your truck to a mechanic or an auto parts store that can do a diagnostics test done. If any fuses or relays are blown, this test should bring up any codes that would indicate any type of malfunctions.

The shift lever being locked: In newer vechicles, the brake pedel, as you know must be pressed in order for the transmission to be put into gear. There should be a sensor on the transmission that runs in cahoots with the brakes. This sensor tells the computer what gear the transmission is in. It is very possible that at the last time you put the vehicle in Park, that the switch had it's final moment of ability. If the sensor is in fact useless, it may be the reason the transmission is locked into Park. It may be the reason why the brake lights aren't working; and why the brake lights fuse is blowing. Also, check all relays, (can be tested with a fuse tester) and make sure all relays are good as well. Make sure also that the light sockets for the brake lights, tail lights, back up lights, and front running and blinker lights are in good condition. One faulty socket, can cause more than one bulb to blow, or cause fuses and relays to blow as well. Follow the wiring for the brake lights for as far as you can to ensure there is no damage (melted, broken, etc.). This could also affect fuses. This truck I see is barely 5 years old, but you'd be surprised how quickly parts and wiring and such will go bad, or wear out and/or just quit working.

If the transmission sensor is not the problem, and all fuses and relays are good. tranny fluid is full, check the linkage under the truck. It may be jammed somehow, or stuck. On the transmission, where the lever inserts, there is a seal - inside that seal, there is like a gear that the lever pushes in order to shift from gear to gear etc. You may need to have that checked out to make sure it's not broken inside. If your fluid is low, or empty, you may have froze up your transmission, however, you most likely would have been seeing large amounts of fluid in the frequent places you park. Another think to check is your differentials. Make sure the fluid is full in each, as well as the seals not leaking. The seal sits just inside the inner most part of the pumpkin (differential ball) where the yoke is inserted. Maybe you have just locked up the rear driveline. Check the seal on the front end of the driveline as well, (goes into the rear of the transmission (yoke). Check your U-Joints as well, making sure they are intact, tight. It may be a good idea to have them replaced if they look supsicous in any way.

These are all the things I can think of that would make your truck be stuck in park, and make your lights not work, and blow fuses.

I sincerely hope this information is useful and aides in the successful repair of your truck. Thank you again for choosing fixya.com. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance, or if you have any more questions or concerns (comments).

Thank you again,

SOURCE: how do you change the third brake light on a 2004

That light is one piece assy. The LED bulbs are not replaceable. Remove two screws from bottom of light assy, then unplug wiring connection. It is expensive from dealer. Shop around. Online auto parts stores can be cheaper.

You might try removing the brake light bulbs from each light including the third brake light and see if the fuse still blows. If it does not then replace the bulbs one at a time until it does. You will then have an area to look for the short that is causing your problem. If the fuse still blew with the lights out it will be a good time to get out the ohmmeter and check continuity for the power feed to the light sockets to ground. Not easy but a start!

Fix cruise control on my 2009 Chevy tahoe


Most common failure (other than fuse) is the switch at the brake pedal which kicks it out of cruise. Switch must be in correct position and adjusted such that it is depressed fully when brake pedal is up.

Why is my 2009 chevrolet aveo brake lights not working


are you having any difficulty putting it into gear, if is auto trans? Had a problem with no brake lights,2004 Aveo, there is a plunger switch that engages when you depress the brake pedal. if you get on floorboard under the steering wheel area, depress the brake pedal you will see the switch the brake pedal should be engaging. It is simple to remove, take to your auto parts store, they should have one in stock. Good Luck

No brake lights


The third brake light circuit bypasses the turn signal switch.
I would check the turn signal switch for power in and out with the brake pedal depressed.

My break lights dont work.fuzes and bulbs are ok ?


For starters it is spelled "Brake" light...LOL . Sounbds like you may have a brake light switch that has gone out. In yor owners manual does it show more than one fuse for the brake lights? Most vehicles with a thrid/highmount brake light split the brake light power to either the left and third brake light and the right brake light or vice versa, or posibble 3rd brake light on its own fuse. I would check if all of the brake light including the 3rd brake light dont work. If no lights work at all it leans toward the switch which controls all or them to activate hence the brake light switch. It should be mounted on your brake peal arm or to the main base. The pedal lever activate the switch when you depress the brake pedal.

I have to boost vehicle off every morning.Battery and Alternator good but every morning battery dead after sitting over night.Hook battery cables up and starts up after a few minutes


I guess that your battery is being run down by a device sapping energy from the battery. I would guess off the top of my head that it is the brake lights as that is a common problem of vehicles. The brake light is activated by a small switch mounted under the driver's side, up near the leg of the brake pedal. That switch is spring backed so that when you depress the pedal the shaft of the switch is let forward and turns on the brake light. That switch sometimes comes loose or half cocked in the housing and stays activated all the time until you let the brake pedal loose and the leg of the pedal depresses the switch shaft just enough to turn off the brake light. The solution is to replace the switch, at about 15 bucks at your Advance Store. or 10 bucks plus shipping on the internet. You can check when you leave the vehicle to see if the brake lights are still on. Mind you, this does not happen all the time as sometimes it is cured by the action of the brake pedal knocking the shaft back in line

I just changed the brake booster in my 97 tahoe now i dont have brake lights


Check the brake light switch on the pedal assembly. Check to make sure the wires are still connected and not broken. Make sure the contacts are closing when the pedal is depressed.

No tail lights or brake lights/must start car in neutral


Look up at the top of the brake pedal under dash and you should see a switch hooked to the pedal with a LG/R and LG wire. You should have power on the LG/R wire then when you depress pedal it should have power on the LG then.
Another question does the 3rd or high mount brake lamp illuminate when pedal is depressed?
