1975 chevrolet truck. turn signals and stop light not working


Your brake lights go through your turn signal as well, That's what disables a brake light when you use your turn signal, In other words, When you hit your brakes, Your brake lights come on, Then when you use your turn signal, It cancels that brake light on the side that you're turning..Make sure you're getting fire to your turn signal switch and if it's coming through when you apply the brakes or use the signals..

It sounds as if you have a bad earth to either one or both of your rear light clusters. If it only happens when you indicate in one direction then that is the offending side.

Head lights and brake lights not working


check power wire which runs to the brakelight with a test light, get someone to apply the brake on and off and see if there is power getting back to that point, if no power check the switch on the brake pedal to see if power is getting to that point.
also check the earth on the bulbs because they wont work if there is no earth

I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee. My problem is that when the engine is ON my left brake light WILL NOT light up when the brake is applied... BUT when the engine is OFF, and the brake is applied, the...


the only thing that should separate the right and left brake light is the turn signal switch i think if tis vehicle has seperate light bulbs for the turn signals and brake lights it will not involve the turn signal swicth. either way ther is a voltage loss somewhere. test with a voltmeter at the brake light switch with the engine on and off,if it is vastly deferent go back to the fuze and ceck both sides of that,then back to the ignition switch.you should probably locate a wiring diagram.if the brake light and turn signals are the same bulbs you will need to ceck the turn signal switcth.this is removeable after taking off the plastic cover behind the steering wheel and held on by two scews very small torx head scews.it is referd to as a combination switch.

Brakes applied, brake light turns on but other running lights off


The brake switch under your brake pedal may be defective. It turns on the brake lights when brakes are applied, if it is defective within the switch, it may short your other lights when brakes are applied. The switch can be replaced by you and it not expensive.
