SOURCE: brake lights rear

You should check the fuses. There may be a separate fuse from the brake lights and the interior brake light.

SOURCE: Brake lights don't work. Replaced bulbs, checked

Yes, you need to of course check the voltage coming into and going out of the brake light switch, if 12 Volts are there going out and coming in while pressing on the brake pedal, your brake lights aren't getting a good ground or there is a break in the circuit between that switch & the lights.

On occasion the tail lights will work with a weak ground circuit where the Brake lights won't. Best way to determine this is to just hook up the 12 volt tester to the Brake light hot wire & there at the bulb ground, then in an area away from the bulb that has a good possibility of contact/ground.

Really that's it, if the 12Volts is getting to the bulb but it isn't lighting, if you aren't getting the voltage there and the brake switch is hot on both sides when pressed, the break in voltage will have to be traced from that switch to the tail light to find the problem.

good luck.

Replace the bulb with the one from the other side and see if it works. I bet the bulb is burnt.

Brake light and tail light not working on one side


The brake light and tail light are on two different circuits.
They can use the same bulb if it is a double filament.
You probably have something wrong with the light socket or the ground connection.

Left rear turn signal on dodge ram 1500 won't work. bulb replacement didn't help.


Just had a similar question last week, and the solution was a bad socket/bulb holder.
You might try and see if there is current in the brake light wire leading to the bulb holder.
I have used a jumper wire and a safety pin to test the wire behind the socket.
I pierced the plastic insulation of the brake light wire with the point of the safety pin, and either use a tester or even a good working bulb and a good ground wire.
Be blessed.

Hi, the likely problem is the turn signal switch. The signals and brake lights use different fuses. You can get an owners manual here:
http://www.extendedgmwarranty.com/owners-manual/chevrolet/1996-Chevrolet-Cavalier.pdf

A new switch is about $40, and it isn't too hard to replace. Make sure you get one that has the same controls as yours does. To replace the switch, remove the covers from the steering column, disconnect the switch and unscrew it from the column.

Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Bulbs are good fuses are good brake switch is good Turn signals and tail lights work but brake lights dont


Well, you didn't mention what kind of vehicle you have so I can't tell you anything any more specific than what you told me. However, if your brake lights are the type that work on the same bulb as your turn signal, you could have a bad multifunction (turn signal) switch.

Sorry, I can't tell you much more than that with the information I have. YEAR, MAKE, MODEL, ENGINE SIZE would be very helpful if you would like a better answer.

Brake light not working in a 2001 jeep grand cherokee


first check fuse, then check bulbs if not either of those then bad brake switch, which is located at the top of the brake pedal. I'm sure you're reading this thinking ok **** I know it's not the bulbs......I have a 99 that had no brake lights at all. Like a **** I didn't check the bulbs til last thing what's the odds of all 3 bulbs blowing at the same time. They were though, all 3 blown.
