Question about 1999 Pontiac Grand Am GT

1 Answer

Brake light, Driver Side, will not come on.

The brake light portion of the drivers side rear lights do not work. The bulbs are good and the reverse and directional lights work great. Any thoughts? Before i go and buy a replacment light, does anyone know where and if the failure point can be fixed? maybe a loose connection?


Thank you

Hello, I would first check your fuses to your lights first. Then I would press on the brake and have some one check and see if the brake lights come on. If not it is a possible brake light switch and this will probaly need to be replaced. I would check for loose connections on this and check the connections to your back lights as well. The brake light switch is connected to the top of your brake pedal assembly. If these are not the problems it is a possible short in your tailight assembly. I hope this solves your problem for you!

To clarify my post, driver side rear brake light does not work when braking. Need help


Easy, jus replace the bulb. No more than $20 and it should b an easy on n off wit little to no tools. But first have someone look at the lights or u and with the key in the on position engine off and lights on, does everything light up? If yes good. Then have have the person or yourself step on the brakes and if the passenger side brake light do light up and obviously not ur driver side then its and easy bulb replacement.

Weird tail light problem


HI Matt,
Your issue sounds like a fault, most likely in the rear lights. Current is feeding from the brake light circuit, into the running light circuit. The most common causes are a bulb filament broken and touching the running light circuit, and loss of ground.
observe the rear lights closely and you should get a clue as to which light is failing....but if not, just pick one....
I would run a temporary ground and test again, if no results, pull the brake light bulbs...
Transient current is often difficult to wrap your mind around, until you understand what can happen.

Driver side brake light doesnt work but other brake light does changed bulbs still does not work


Make sure the fuses are good.There is a fuse for left and right brake lights.The fuse blocks are under the hood and there`s also one under the drivers side rear seat.If the fuses are good then remove the rear lamp assembly and check the bulb.I believe there are 2 screws and then just pull lamp assembly out.Hope this helps.Good luck.
