Question about 2002 GMC Envoy

BRAKE LIGHTS..... A SHORT MAYBE?

I HAVE A 2002 GMC ENVOY AND AM HAVING PROBLEMS WITH THE TAIL LIGHT CIRCUIT BOARDS. THE BULBS KEEP BURNING OUT. I CHECK THE BULB BASE AND IT IS MELTED. ALSO SOMETIMES THE LIGHTS WORK THEN I HIT A BUMP IN THE ROAD AND IT GOES OUT. I'VE TRIED PUTTING BULB GREASE BUT WITHOUT ANY LUCK. I HAVE TRIED REPLACING THE TAIL LIGHT CIRCUIT BOARD AND IT WILL WORK FOR 3 MONTHS BEFORE THE PROBLEM COMES BACK. I HAVE ASKED AROUND AND HEAR I MIGHT HAVE TO REPLACE THE WIRING ALL THE WAY BACK. I HAVE ALSO HEARD THAT THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM AND THAT I JUST NEED TO KEEP REPLACING THE BULBS AND CIRCUIT BOARD. PLEASE HELP...........

FYI - there was a recall on the GMC Envoy tail light circuit boards back in 2004-05. I would suggest taking it to an authorized dealer and ask them about it. A lot of times these types of things are taken care of at no charge if it is/was a factory recall. It's a safety issue - they should take care of it.

One set of brake lights remains on at all time, while the other set only lights up when the brake is pushed. Top does not work either. Already replaced brake pedal switch and checked the fuses and bulbs.


Sounds like you have a shorted ground, some brake systems have a switched ground to control the lights. If your lights are staying on it sounds like the switch wire has a short to chassis ground. Check the wiring around the tail lights area.

How to fix my right brake light and fast moving turn signal on my 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee?


The most likely problem is two burned out light bulbs. A burned out tail/stop lamp on the right side and a burned out brake lamp on the left. If you have already replaced the bulbs, then yes, the circuit boards are the next most likely cause of the problem.

Passenger blinker keeps failing. Replaced bulbs several times. Is it the circuit board at the tail light? All other lights work fine. I am speaking of the rear turn signal.


Did you ever test the bulbs or the circuits to the bulbs before replacing them? Circuit board failures are very common. One can usually verify if it is a citcuit board by tapping and/or twisting a little and making the bulb go on and off.

I have a 2005 GMC Envoy. Have tail lites but no brake lites. Third lite on top works whet brakes applied


Since the high mounted brake light works you know that the brake light switch is working. Now you need to check the brake light bulbs in the rear tail light assemblies. The brake lights are separate from the tail light (parking or running lights). There are two screws that hold the rear light assemblies in place.

2003 GMC Envoy have no brake lights, only the top light on the gate works, can you help thanks


First and easiest we need to check for power going to the rear lights at the plug that goes into the tail light housing. There is a board that the lights plug into that goes bad. The Envoy uses separate brake and turn bulbs so the 3rd brake and the two side are on the same circuit.

I have a short to ground problem with my tail/crtsy light circuit ( keeps poppin fuses when the light swith is pulled to on position) also dash lights & tail lights don't work but interior light is on...


Try removing the bulbs from the rear tail lights you have one 2 bulb system shorting out, so one at a time remove the bulbs then replace the fuse and see which one is bad or just buy new bulbs and replace, also could be front running light blinker light. But sounds like brake light to ground threw bulb.

Brake lights on tail don't work, upper one does.


There is a recall on the tail lights from GM. The problem I found on mine were faulty contacts that would burn out the bulb contacts in short order after replacing the bulbs. So even if you replace the bulbs they will only work for a short while before they burn out. Take it to a GM dealer to get the complete tail light assemblies replaced.
