I'm working on a 1984 Camry with no brake lights. You might try the brake light switch. It is located near the top of the brake pedal. Mine was hard to get to. I had to remove lower plastic piece under stearing wheel and a AC outlet. The switch should have 12 V to one side even with motor off. When you press on the brake the switch allows 12V to pass through to the brake lights. I am no expert. Still working on my problem. I've got 12V through my switch but nothing going to the back. I don't have a good wiring diagram and you talk about alot of wires just take a good look under there. You do want to check bulbs in back. I supose you have checked that already. God bless Steve

My brake lights dont work but the tail lights come on when I turn on the headlights.


Check fuses first. Should be a fuse labeled 'Stop' or 'Brake'.

If fuses are good, climb under the dash and look at the brake switch, it's high up on the brake lever. Make sure it is operated by pressing in the brake pedal.

Look in your Vehicle manual for the fuse panel diagram and check the BRK Fuse, and also the Tail light fuse. If both are good, the problem may lye in the brake light switch attached to the brake pedal.

Interior dash and running lights dont work but my signal and brake lights work else works


Look at fuse #18, a 15 amp fuse, in the fuse block. This fuse powers both the tail lights and instrument cluster lights. Usually both of these light systems are powered by the same fuse so when your cluster isn't lit up you'll know right away that your tail lights aren't working as it's not safe to drive without tail lights. Your brake, turn, and head lamps are powered by different circuits. Hope this helps and good luck!

Brake light dont work. 2006 chevy truck, 4.8L 2wd


Some of these had two fuses for brake lights. One for the top/center stop lamp and another for the rear left and right brake lights. Usually one said "stop" and the other said "brake" and one was in the underhood panel while the other was in the dash fuse panel. It's not uncommon to blow a brake light fuse [LR and RR] if you tow a trailer but some of these had seperate fuses for the trailer lights also. If you have a test light check both sides of the two fuses for power [ignition key on] while stepping on the brakes. It should at lest narrow your search a bit.

No tail lights


You should have a fuse panel under you dash inside. This is where the fuses are located for lights. Don't know the exact location, but you can pull each fuse to see if it is bad. This won't hurt anything. It just keeps you from hunting down a diagram of where the fuse is located.

sounds like a broken wire in the harness. look around the bumper area,sometimes along the frame. may have to peel back some tape covering. also if you have a trailer harness look closely at those.

Right brake light out; tail light works fine


most rear tail lights and turn/stop lights are the same dual filiment bulb. it is possible for your tail light to work and your brake light not to and still have a bad bulb. I would check the bulb first, your brake light works on the left yes? this would mean that the fuse is fine

Only headlights work, 91 4dr EX


ok supaxang, could this solution be as simple as replace the 2 rear bulbs? The brake light and tail light (parking light) are the same bulb, 2 filaments, one for brakes, one for tail lights. If the the tail light filament burns out, the brake light will continue to work ok. It is quite possible that both tail lights burned out, and the brake light filaments are good and still working. Replace w/ bulb #2057. Let me know if this fixes it, if not, I'll keep working on it.
