I presume you mean new bulb ? obvious question ,have you got correct bulb? is it brake and rear light in the one bulb (double filament)? if these are all ok check for body earth trace wire from rear of light cluster and ensure the earth wire is in good condition , i'd unbolt/unscrew the wire and clean up both surfaces just to make sure of good contact

Brake Lights Dull or Flickering - All Cars



Dull or Dim Brake Light Repair: If your car has a dull or dim brake light it is dangerous to you and other drivers. A dim brake light is a mystery to most people because the bulb is working, just not correctly. First confirm a new and correct brake light bulb has been installed. Next, turn the ignition key to the "on" position and have a helper depress the brake pedal. With the bulb installed touch a grounded test light to the outer bulb holder ring. If the bulb brightness changes the bulb socket ground has high resistance and needs to be repaired or replaced.

Flickering Brake Light Bulb Repair: A flickering brake light bulb can be very distracting and annoying. A brake light flickers because the power or ground is being obstructed momentarily. The most common cause for this condition is a loose fitting bulb socket. To check for this condition remove the brake light bulb in question, while a helper hold their foot on the brake pedal move the bulb around slightly in the socket. If the bulb flickers replace or repair the bulb socket as needed to regain proper brake light bulb operation. If the brake light bulb socket tests ok wiggle the brake light fuse and wiring at the brake light bulb socket, brake light switch and turn signal switch (American cars). If the brake light bulb flickers repair the component or wiring as needed.
Preferred Procedure: Always replace brake light bulbs with manufacturers recommend replacement bulbs. If you cannot find the correct replacement bulb part number consult an auto parts store for additional manufacturer information.
Common Problems
When brake light bulbs are replaced with the incorrect bulb causing no or dim brake light operation
If the brake lights stay on continuously it could mean the brake light switch has failed or an adjustment is needed.

99 mustang wont start when I press the brake pedal but if I just pull e-brake it will start. Have new battery. Also dome light goes dim when I press brake pedal.


You have a short in the brake system wires. Id start disconnecting everything one at a time until the dimming goes away. Then that component will be your issue. Whether it has failed or the wires going to it are shorted will depend on diagnostics and what it shows.

Wiring problem-between motor and starter


You need to post more about this problem. Answer some of these questions and provide the brand of Vehicle and Model.
1. Is there a click when you turn the key to start?
2. Are the lights and controls bright or do they dim significantly when you turn the key to start?
3. Will the Brake lights come on when the Brake is pressed. If no, check under the dash at the switch on the upper Brake pedal lever. If broken or loose, service until the Brake lights start working.
4. Include this info and consider reposting the request with the new info.

Got new brakes about 8 months ago --abs light is going on and the lights are dimming--can you advise what that means?


For this problem you may need to put your SUV on a specialized scanner. The ABS system has a dedicated diagnostic plug to test the computer within it. The fact that your lights are dimming is unusual. For something to pull enough power to dim the lights without blowing a fuse first is showing this is a wiring problem.

You may want to disconnect the NEG battery cable or park the SUV outside your house, away from anything valuable. There were recalls on Cruise control circuits for some year models. You should read the Vin# to the Dealer as it is possible this unit was missed. You can also check under the Brake pedal lever and see if there are any broken plastic switches. Sometimes a foot will break parts in the interior of the drivers pedal area. The resulting short could affect some lighting.

The ABS warning can simply be a wheel sensor which fell out of its mount. For it to ground consistently to dim lights, I don't see it happening. Would like to know the results of this repair.

Wow, that is a lot of problems to have with a vehicle that was problem 47,500 brand new (just guessing) Look up what qualifies in your state as far as the lemon law is concerned. I am sorry you have had so many issues with your vehicle.
