Brake Lights don't work

I have a 78 Cutlass supreme and my brake lights quit working. They work when I turn the hazards on so it isn't the bulb, the fuses are fine and I just put a new stop light switch on and they still don't work. Help Me!!

Did you actually check the bulbs.They can both burn out at the same time.You think the lights are ok because it lights up when the hazards are on,but the brake light switch stops the hazards from flashing when brake pedal is applied

Check fuse for brakes under dash. I believe the brake lights and dash lights were on the same circuit in that model. Hope this helps and have a good day.

1989 olds cutlass supreme. None of the brake lights work. All other lights work. Fuses are good.


You probably have a bad brake light switch. This switch is located on the brake pedal arm or a bracket next to the arm. This switch activates the brake lights when the pedal is pushed. You can check this by turning on your turn signals or warning flasher if your light flash in the rear. Your bulbs are good so this will bring you back to the brake light switch.

Hi there, my 1999 oldsmile cutlass supreme seems to be having difficulties w both brake lights. i replaced bulbs, no luck. cyclops light still works, suggestions? fuse? where would it be located, thanks...


try to toggle the hazard (emergency lamp switch on top of the steering collumn) on and off rapidly several times.the switch cuts the brake lights out for the 4ways to flash. if the 3rd brake-light still works the fuse is good.if the 4ways work and you cant get the brake lights to work then the multifunction lever has to be replaced which has the hazard switch on it. this is a vary common problem but the steering wheel has to be removed along with some other components behind the wheel which require special tools and knowledge. usually you can get the brake-lights working again by working the button for the 4ways rapidly until the brake lights start working again. good luck.

Have a 96 Olds Cutlass Supreme, brake lights will not work. We've replaced bulbs, fuses and brake light switch and still nothing. Help!


Try having someone push on brake pedal at the same time thay move the turn signal lever up and down slightly to see if your brake lights work this would tell me that you have a faulty turn signal switch because GM runs the brake lights thru the turn signal switch so they work if you are driving with your 4way flashers on.

One of 2 things to have checked, if all your bulbs and connections are correct. 1-stop lamp switch module.
2-multifunction/combination switch (blinker arm/components that are in the steering column). For about a 1/2 hrs. labor cost, a mechanic should be able to test the circuits.

Rear brake lights not working, but bulbs are fine


Hi! Have you checked the brake light switch? usually located at the top of the footbrake pedal, it is a plunger type and should have two wires going to it? if faulty try bridging the connection/wires for a test! have someone watching your lights to save jumping in and out of vehicle.
Merry Christmas!
