98 olds bravada brake lights not working

I have checked all the bulbs and all the fuses and the brake lights still will not work. I did notice the third brake light(on top) is not working does that cause all the lights not to work? I still have reverse lights and tail lights

    I would check the brake light switch at the top of the brake pedal.

Check the brake light switch under the dash where your break peddle arm rest against when it's not pushed down. Also there is a relay in the glove box, you'll see a panel in the glove box that say relays. There are three relays in there, one for the A/C , the fuel pump and brake  light. I believe the fuel pump is the middle, i can not remember which side is the brake light relay is but if you turn on the a/c while the engine is running you may hear and feel which relay is the a/c when the compressor kicks in.
Good luck and keep me posted.

Brake lights ceased working.


-Make sure the correct fuse.
And did you check the bulb? If yes the bulb are good.
-next check power at the bulb. Ask a helper to help you brake and
check any power there or not. If yes there is power. Then the problem is NOT Ground.

Good Luck

My Oldsmobile Brava brake lights aren't working, new bulbs and fuse.


Have you checked the brake switch under the drivers side of the dash? There are fairly simple to check. One wire should have power all the time. The other wire should have power anytime the brake pedal is depressed. If there is no power out and power in the switch is bad. If there is no power in than there is an issue with the wiring. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

97 Olds Bravada My brake & hazard lights don't


There are TSB's for this issue. I chased this issue for months on mine. Go find the TSB's, there's troubleshooting pointing out the faulty part. It could be, the brake light switch, the hazzard light switch itself, the multi-function switch. I had replaced all of these and still had the problem. Wiring that goes from the brake switch to up near the fender was shorting against the fender. I replaced the pigtail, problem fixed. Best bet to help you, is find the TSB's for this problem.

The heater blows hot air when in cool position on a 98 olds bravada


AC not working?

on a hot day it will blow warm/hot air if the AC is turned off or not working

If its hot air and AC is working then i would start by checking the fuse or relay. if its not the fuse/relay then i would look into the heater box there is a door that blocks the hot air

Main brake lights not working, third light works, turn signals work, all fuses are good, what could be the problem? 02 Olds Bravada.


Most likley the brake light switch. It has 2 different sides. One for the third brake light and one for the lower brake lights. It is inexpensive and can be changed easily. Good Luck
