Replace all the bulbs and if that doesn't work, check all the socket grounds.

SOURCE: my break lights dont work!!

Make sure that your hazard switch is all the way OFF I have seen this problem. But here power comes in the brake light switch from the fuse, when you press on the brake it closes and powers the other wire that goes up into the steering column into the turn signal switch and then out to the brake lights I can send you a wiring diagram if you send me your email to fixincars@yahoo.com

SOURCE: right read blinker/break light dont work, turn signal blinks rapidly

It's the bulb. There are two filliments in the bulb. One is for when you turn your lights on and the other is for breaking and blinker flashing. When the break filliment goes bad it causes the blinker to flash very rapidly. 100% the bulb. Change it and all will be good again. P.S. if it were a fuse none of the break lights or blinkers would work.

SOURCE: dash and running lights not working

The dash and insrument illumination lights are both controlled off the same circuit within the headlamp switch. You can try finding a happy spot for the lights by very slowly pulling out the switch after the running light position and turning the knob back and forth, but, this is purely temporary. You need a new switch and it's very easy to change. If you disconnect the battery positive cable. Pull the switch all the way out to the headlamp position. After doing this reach around the back of the switch on each side and you'll find a small button that you can push in. This button allows You to remove the knob/shaft combination. Then just take out the 6-8 screws that hold the cluster face plate(or it may just pry off) and unscrew the collar that secures the headlamp switch to the dashframe.. The harness comes of in one piece and that's it. Good Luck Dana

now for the hard part, with a voltmeter, start at the fuse and check voltage to the switch then to the tailight sockets. time consuming but the only way

There is a brake light switch on the pedal inside the cabin of the car, if this switch is bad your lights will not work, also I'm fairly confident that the Sebring has a seperate fuse for the brake lights, check your fuse panels also

Over time corrosion can accumulated and rust out a tail light socket and render it non-functioning. Yes it can be replaced and in your case for about $6.00. You can find these at most any auto parts store.

In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

My brake lights don't work and the bulbs are fine


You probably need to change your break switch. It is located under the dash. Your break pedal stem, when pushed down, hits the button to the break switch. It is usually chrome looking and looks like a small cylinder. If you need anything else, let me know. I am here to help. Thank you very much for choosing FixYa.

My brake lights don't work. I've changed the bulbs & checked the fuse. any ideas?


You could check the brakelight switch located on the brake pedal linkage. Sometimes they move out of adjustment, sometimes they fail. The ones I've seen are usually plastic and the threads strip off so the jamb nut won't hold the switch in place correctly. It should be round (or at least the part with the mounting nut should be round) with a plug with 2 or 3 wires going into the back and located so that the brake pedal lever moves away from the switch when you push on the pedal. If you deem that it needs to be replaced the switch should be available at most auto parts stores.

2006 HHR trailer wiring?


Check ground wire to the trailer. On the vehicle and the trailer. Make sure you have a good ground as lighting will seek any path for ground which will feedback and cause lights to act really weird.
