Passanger side brake light issue

My son has a 96 cutlass supreme. When the brake pedal is depressed the brake lights operate fine. If you activate the left turn signal while depressing the brake pedal the right brake light does not work. If you activate the right turn signal while depressing the brake pedal everything operates as it should. Any ideas what is wrong and how i can fix it?

Yes! It is a faulty turn signal assembly. You can try actuating the hazards several times, to try cleaning the contacts but if there is no change then replace it. In case you want to know, the wires from the brake switch, go up into the turn-signal assembly then out to the tail-lights. To fix it, disconnect the battery, you will need some tools. A steering wheel puller, a steering shaft compression tool, 1/2" drive ratchet, metric sockets, cir-clip pliers, a couple of small picks, #2 philips head screwdriver, and some torque-head screwdrivers. carefully pull off the horn cover( may have a couple of scews holding it from the other side), unplug the horn wire (push and twist), remove the cir-clip, remove the nut, mark the area where the steering wheel and shaft meet (use white-out), press off the steering wheel, Compess the shaft, remove the retaining clip(with the picks), remove horn spinner base, remove turn-signal assembly. I need to step back alittle bit, the plug, to the turn-signal, is half-way down the steering column, to unplug it you need to remove the lower dash panel, the bolts holding the column up inplace. The plug is in clear sight but the wiring harness is inside a plastic sheath, you'll see what I'm talking about.

BRAKE LIGHTS STAY ON WHEN FUSE IS IN


Perhaps the brake switch up under the dash has come loose, the pedal returning to a non-brake position, it's default position when you enter the car, presses up upon a switch.
When you depress the brake pedal and allow the plunger to fully extend this activates your brake lights, this also allows the shifter to be moved out of park, the reason you need to press brake pedal to shift car.
So there is a chance someone kicked the switch loose or that is is defective and needs to be replaced, just follow the arm of the brake pedal upwards from where your foot presses and you will find it, you may have to remove a panel that is supposed to prevent any feet from touching the wiring while you drive...

Break lights only work when holding lever slightly inwards to me what may i need to do


brake lights are activated by pushing on the brake pedal. if they are not coming on then you need to have the brake light switch replaced, it is activated by movement of the brake pedal, not by anything on the multifunction switch on the steering column.

1989 olds cutlass supreme. None of the brake lights work. All other lights work. Fuses are good.


You probably have a bad brake light switch. This switch is located on the brake pedal arm or a bracket next to the arm. This switch activates the brake lights when the pedal is pushed. You can check this by turning on your turn signals or warning flasher if your light flash in the rear. Your bulbs are good so this will bring you back to the brake light switch.

The brake lights on my 2000 yukon denali stopped working, The upper light works and I checked the fuses. I replaced the bulbs. The running lights work fine.


If the circuit has power and the fuse is good the problem is most likely the switch. Look under the dash above the brake pedal arm. There is a small plunger type switch which is activated when the brake pedal is depressed. Sometimes this switch gets loose and or out of adjustment. There are two nuts on the shaft (one on each side of the mount). They should be adjusted so the brake lights activate when the brake pedal is depressed about 1/2 inch. If adjustment does not activate the lights use a multimeter and see if the switch is good by touching each of the two wires and depressing and releasing the switch. If there is no difference replace the switch.

Have a 96 Olds Cutlass Supreme, brake lights will not work. We've replaced bulbs, fuses and brake light switch and still nothing. Help!


Try having someone push on brake pedal at the same time thay move the turn signal lever up and down slightly to see if your brake lights work this would tell me that you have a faulty turn signal switch because GM runs the brake lights thru the turn signal switch so they work if you are driving with your 4way flashers on.

Rear brake lights not working, but bulbs are fine


Hi! Have you checked the brake light switch? usually located at the top of the footbrake pedal, it is a plunger type and should have two wires going to it? if faulty try bridging the connection/wires for a test! have someone watching your lights to save jumping in and out of vehicle.
Merry Christmas!

Brake lights


There is a micro switch at the top of the brake pedal that activates the brake lights when you depress the pedal. This switch likely has to be replaced. Any mechanic can do this in about 15 mins.
