Check your brake lamp switch. Most likely your problem.

2008 odyssey brake fuse location


Hi there:
The simplest way to check the brake light fuse on a Honda is to operate the horn. The horn is always on the same fuse as the brakelights.



The fuse position #7, "Stop" is the one. Ive been doing this so long I dont even look at the fuse unless the horn won't blow. It's the fastest surest test. So if the horn works, I'm 99 % sure its the bulbs. The brake light switch has to be good if the shifter works with the brake pedal. Unless the car has been taken apart or damaged in the rear recently I cant see another cause for the light to be out.


The brake lights even use different grounds, so thats unlikely too.
Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.


Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

My brakelights are both not working after changing the bulbs, changing brake pedal sensor, and checking all fuses. The running lights, parking lights, turn signals, hazard lights all work. Please give me...


Probably the blinker switch ..The brake light circuit runs through the blinker switch..Let somebody look and while you have the brakes applied move the switch around and see if the lights come on

I dont have brakelights and dont know what fuse it is


  • Climb under the driver's side of the dashboard with a flashlight and box wrench set.

  • 2

    Shine the flashlight on the Windstar's brake pedal arm to illuminate the brake switch. Unplug the brake light circuit connector from the brake switch.

  • 3

    Unbolt the Windstar's brake switch from its mounting bracket with the box wrench set.

  • 4

    Bolt the Windstar's replacement brake switch onto the bracket with the box wrench set.

  • 5

    Plug the brake light circuit connector into the brake switch

    Brake lights dont light up. Running lights and blinkers work. Just no brakelights.


    Check the brake light fuse. It's separate from the running light fuse and blinker fuse.

    I have a 1999 Ford Explorer XLT and the brake lights and reverse lights don't work. I don't have a diagram of the fuse panel.We have checked everything else.


    Have you checked under the hood in the engine compartment? I do believe there is a fuse box there with fuse for the brake/reverse.

    I have a 1998 Grand Marquis and the brake lights and the turn signals stopped working. I checked the fuses and they look ok. Any suggestions??


    I have a 93 4-door grandmarquis and everything works but the brakelights.
    I was told that the gear shift is possably tied into this because the gear shift is loose.Is that true?
    And what do you suspect is the reason the brake lights dont work?
