How can I find out how the brake lights do not work on the van?


You need a test light or voltmeter-you cannot do electrical tests without one or the other. Where you start is at the brake light fuse-pull it out and check it. Also use the test light (or voltmeter) to verify that there is power at the fuse-one of the fuse terminals should have power to it, it is hot at all times so anytime battery is hooked up, the brake fuse has power to it.
Next you go to the brake pedal where the brake light switch is. It has a button, when pedal is depressed, the button pops out and power goes through the switch and on to the next...
If you have a high mount brake light, look at it, it should be lit when pedal is down, there is a wire direct from the brake pedal switch to the high mount stop light.
Now on most American made cars, the brake lights and the turn signal bulbs work together, so the brake light wire for the rear bulbs first goes from the pedal switch to the turn signal switch before routing out to the rear brake lights.
Use the test light to verify power is at the brake light switch on the brake pedal, when switch is active, power should be on both sides of the switch.
Next you would check for brake light "power in" at the turn signal switch. Keep following the power path, eventually you will arrive at the rear bulbs. If you pull the bulbs out, you can use the test light to check if power is there at the bulb socket-when the brake pedal is depressed. If these are two filament bulbs and sockets (one filament is for the tail lights, and the other filament is for the combined brake and turn signal filament) you have to be sure you are testing the right socket terminal for the brakes/turns filament.

Buy a cheap test light. Practice with the lead clipped to the negative battery post or terminal and use the tester probe to touch the positive, tester should light up, see how easy? Now when you are away from the battery and looking for a good place to ground your tester, clean off the frame, or clip onto a metal bolt, you have to keep testing until you are sure you are connected to a good ground. If you are under the dash, clip lead to a dash frame or bolt, then touch some of the fuses little ports or slits on top of fuse that are open to the fuse metal inside, to watch the tester light up- the key may need to be in ON, not start. When the tester lights, then you know you have a good ground. Now you can continue with testing.

When i bought my car the previous owner said ther was a problem with the brake lights, he had changed the bulbs and checked the fuse(which i cannot find), but still no brake lights.


Your lower brake lites are wired through the turn signal switch. You can see fuse in diagram, underhood fuse box. Your turn and brake use the same bulb filament at the lower rear, just not at the same time. I test for voltage and ground, use a testlight.

Brake lights do not work All bulbs have been replaced.


Troubleshooting Procedures - Read Completely Before Beginning
(American Car) All Brake Lights Not Working
  • Check System Fuse: A fuse is used to protect the brake light circuit from amperage overload. If the fuse has failed it will not allow the electrical current to continue to the brake lights. To check the fuse, first locate the brake light system fuse in the fuse panel which is either under the dash or under the hood in the power distribution center. Connect the test light to a ground like an engine or dash bracket and turn the ignition key to the "on" position. Using the test light probe both sides of the fuse. If the test light illuminates on both sides the fuse is ok continue onto the next step. If one side of the fuse illuminates the fuse has failed and needs to be replaced. If the fuse fails as soon as it is replaced or when you apply the brake pedal the brake light electrical circuit is shorted to ground. Rarely a system short can occur, a car repair manual is needed to find the wiring schematic for the brake light circuit. Once the brake light wiring has been located inspect and repair as needed.
  • Check Brake Light Bulbs: All cars have three brake light bulbs that create the brake light illumination affect. If all of these brake light bulbs fail no brake light operation will occur. I know what you're thinking, you might say all three brake lights at once? But in reality one brake light went out at a time and you did not notice. People only tend to notice something when they almost run into the back of your car to help persuade them to inform you the brake lights aren't working. Remove any of the brake light bulbs to confirm the bulb is ok or burned. After the bulb has been removed inspect the filament and replace if failed. If the brake light bulbs are ok continue to the next step.
  • Checking the Brake Light Switch: A control switch is used to connect the brake light electrical circuit. This switch is located near the brake pedal lever. Basic switches have just two wires, power in and power out to the turn signal switch. Use a test light that is grounded and with the key in the "on" position test for power at one side (wire) of the switch, then press the brake pedal while testing the opposite side (wire). It should illuminate the test light, if electrical power is connected through the switch go to the next step. If no power is detected through the switch the brake light switch has failed and replacement is required. If your car is equipped with more than two wires integrated into the brake light switch a car repair manual is needed to locate the proper brake light circuit wiring.

I am such a girl. I have no brake lights I want to check my fuse box before I take my car to a shop but can not locate my fuse box.


drivers side under the dash under a cover.or on the side of the dash behind the driver side door under a cover( Covers just pop off) tricky if youve never seeen one before. hope this helps. changing the bulbs is easy too. once you locate the other side of the brake lights in the trunk you just twist the connector and the bulb and socket will pop out. make sure you pull out the right bulbs. pull them out then try the brake if they dont work you know thats the bulbs. but yes check your fuses first.

2003 silverado 1500 v-6 brake lights dont work


ljones, Did you check the "VEH stop" fuse in the left side instrument panel fuse box. There are 3 stop light fuses, 1 for all the stop lights located in the under hood fuse box. 2 in the left side IP fuse box. 1 for the upper stop light and 1 for the lower stop lights. The fuse box in the IP is where the upper and lower stop lights split. Let me know.

Both of my brake lights went out at the same time


I Just had the same problem. I found that the bulb socket was inserted in such a way as to cause a short which blows fuse 46 when you press the brake pedal. I also had some bulbs which didn't fit properly. I hope this helps someone out. Also when Fuse 46 blows, you can't start the car till you replace the fuse.

For those of you who don't know where the fuse panel is its on the left "driver's side of American BMW's under the hood nearest the windshield cover by a rectangular black plastic box. It snaps open from the front side.

I took out the whole light assembly and cleaned it and replace all the mismatched bulbs with the correct ones, to be sure I fixed my problem for good. Check control now reads "ok"

All this refers to when you press the pedal all the brake lights stop working and you control center says brake circuit failure.
