Break lights not working. I have already checked the fuse as well as the bulbs. I called Saturn to see if there was a recall based on my VIN but no. Where do I go from here?

I would suggest checking you brake light switch. Depending if you have a 4 cylinder or V-6 it's slightly different to access it but it's inside the car and the switch rests against the brake pedal arm. You will either have to remove a small panel (that is installed with push pins) or some ducting work to access the switch. Sometimes it just needs a little adjustment to make it start to work again. Good luck.

When my sister replaced her stereo the same thing happened, i turned out that some open wires had crossed and some were hooked up improperly. Have you recently replaced yours?

2006 GMC Envoy rear passenger brake light does not work. checked bulb working, checked fuse working what could it be


A few things....there are 2 fuse boxes to check, one in engine compartment, and one under back seat drivers side. 2nd, check and see if your socket is getting power. 3rd, there is a recall for the rear brake lights, so if all else fails, call the dealer with your VIN #.

Was there a recall on the brake boosters in 2008 Saturn Vue XE


If you call the service department at your local chevy/gmc dealer and give them your Vehicle Identification Number, they can tell you if there was a recall on your specific vehicle. Many recalls had VIN breaks where only certain number ranges were recalled. It's always safer to call the GM dealer.

I'M HAVING PROBLEMS WITH THE BREAK LIGHT NOT WORKING, HAVE CHECK THE BULBS, FUSES, RELAY SWITCH ALL SEEM TO BE OK, STILL WILL NOT WORK. THE TOP BREAK LIGHT IS OK. WHAT ELSE SHOULD I LOOK FOR? THIS...


If the top brake light is working, then the brake light switch on the brake pedal is ok and adjusted properly. GM had major problems with the circuit boards on these....check for power at the circuit boards with the brake pedal depressed.
Also,the brake/stop lamps are wired thru the Turn Signal switch which on this model is the multifunction switch...I have seen this fail many times, it's expensive and not a repair that can be made in a few minutes, takes several hours and a lot of paitence.
Did you check the fuses in the rear fuse box as well?...I suggest you call your dealer or GM direct and see if your vehicle falls under any of these recall notices---i bet it does. If the recall repairs have not been made, then they will do for you at no cost. You will need to have your VIN number ready when you call. Below is a brief description of a recall notice.

Recall Summary:ON CERTAIN SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES, VIBRATION AND HEAT MAY CAUSE THE TAIL LAMP/STOP LAMP BULB TO LOOSEN IN ITS SOCKET. IF THIS OCCURS, THE BULB MAY FLICKER AND EVENTUALLY BECOME INOPERATIVE.

Consequence:AN INOPERATIVE BRAKE LAMP WILL NOT CONVEY THE DRIVER'S INTENTION OF STOPPING TO DRIVERS IN FOLLOWING VEHICLES, AND AN INOPERATIVE REAR TURN SIGNAL LAMP WILL NOT CONVEY THE DRIVER¿S INTENTION TO TURN TO DRIVERS IN FOLLOWING VEHICLES. BOTH OF THESE FAILURES CAN INCREASE THE RISK OF A CRASH. RemedyDEALERS WILL INSPECT THE TAIL LAMP/STOP LAMP ASSEMBLIES, AND IF NECESSARY, REPLACE THEM. THE RECALL BEGAN ON NOVEMBER 22, 2004. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT CHEVROLET AT 1-800-630-2438, OLDSMOBILE AT 1-800-630-6537, BUICK AT 1-866-608-8080, OR GMC AT 1-866-996-9463. NotesGENERAL MOTORS CORP. 04087

My bottom brake lights dont work 2004 chevy trailbalzer


The recall on those was the boards the bulbs mount too. Remove the lenses and then the boards. See if your bulbs are good and check for fire at the light blue, or brown and white wire. Modle dependant. Good Luck

05 ion right front directional does not work. its not the bulb.


A similar problem with my 2003 Ion turned out to be a recall that was never repaired (it needed a Daytime Running Lamp Jumper Kit installed). I would suggest calling the Saturn Customer Assistance Center (1-800-553-6000); if you give them your VIN# they can tell you whether or not there are any open recalls on your vehicle. Or, call your local Saturn dealership; they can look it up too, and if it is an open recall that's where you'll have to take it to get it fixed anyway (at Saturn's expense).

Brake lights do not work chevy blazer 2001


You have a bad multifunction switch in the steering colum. The same thing happened to me on my 2001 LS Blazer. There was a recall for this item, and if you go to your Chev dealer they can run your VIN and see if it had already been replaced under the recall. If not, you may be in luck for a free fix.

That was not my luck, even though I had the same failure it had already been "fixed" during the recall, and that repair cost me over $300.00

Good luck!

2000 Saturn sl2 tail lights


If the 2000 Saturn SL2 is the same as the '99 SL2, then your tail lights bulb is the same bulb as your break light bulb. Now they are dual bulbs, just like your head lights. So just the same way that your brights can work, but your headlight lamp be out, or vice versa, is the same with your break lights. So replace both bulbs and you should be good to go. I just had to replace both mine, one was a tail light out, and the other's break light was out, either way, same bulb. Also, check your manual for the light, or take the light out when you go in to get new ones. I found that for some reason there is some confusion on the bulb in this make in model.
