There is a clip that gets worn on the brake pedal that holds the switch tight to one side. It must be put on correctly or else the brake lights will come on for a split second and then go out when you push the brake pedal down further.

The brake lights for 98 Tahoe/GM trucks are a problem..if switch is ok, then it will be a common problem with the metal strip that connects the three bulbs in the tail light assembly. Take it apart and replace the bulb holder{available used for about $25.} You can see the burned through section when viewed. Hope this helps.

I have a 1995 tahoe and just replaced the brake power booster. I had to pry off the switch interruptor, which is located on the brake pedal, to remove to the power booster cable. I've got it all back...


The retainer that was damaged upon removal does not provide a ground path for the lights, however the spring tension does hold the switch in position.
These retainers are available at your local dealership as brake switch recalls are quite common on GM trucks.

Brake lights dont work (95 Tahoe) but have signal and running lights and top brake light good fuses


Sounds like the turn signal switch. Top brake light is wired direct so it will always work.

Brake lights don't stay on when I press on brake pedal. I have a 1998 chevy tahoe. Can someone help?


Stay on or go on when brake peddle is used?  If there is no brake lights check the fuse, and there is a brake light switch by the blrake peddle arm. Check the wire and check to see if the switch need to be re adjusted. Worst youmight have to replace the switch. Good Luck

Brake light dont work


check the fuse for the brake lights. The brake lights and siganl lights use the same bulb filament. The parking and running lights use a dimmer filament in the bulb. There are 2 filaments.
Your brake lights work through the multifunction switch which operates the signal lights. If the signal lights work, you may have a bad brake lamp switch which is on your brake pedal arm.
Let us know what you find.
