Question about 1994 Chevrolet Suburban

2 Answers

I am troubleshooting brake light issues I am having. All three brake lights do not turn on when brakes are pressed. I have already changed the fuse and brake lights, still nothing. The reverse and signal lights work fine. Now, I am trying to locate the brake switch, but not real sure what I am looking for. I tried following the shaft of the brake pedal, and there doesn't seem to be a switch there? Where could it possibly be or even look like?

Hi Tanya, A short circuit in a vehicle is very dangerous. The cause needs to be identified and isolated. Why did you replace the brake light switch and then the indicator switch? Did the fuse blow when operating those units? Let me know more information and maybe we can sort it out? Regards John

I have a daewoo lanos 1999 and when I press the brakes the brake light does`nt turn on what should I do?


It could be one of three things, the bulbs could have burnt out only for the brake filament...replace a bulb and check.
There is a sensor under the brake pedal that turns those lights on..that could be broken, it looks like a button.
Could also be a fuse, but thats the least likely.

How to change a tail light bulb in a honda element


Open the hatch and the tailgate.

Remove the two mounting screws with a Phillips-head screwdriver, and remove the taillight assembly from the body by pulling it back.

Determine which of the three bulbs is burned out: brake/taillight, turn signal light or backup light. (I assume you’ve already determined this)

Remove the socket by turning it one-quarter turn counterclockwise.

Pull the bulb straight out of its socket.

Push the new bulb straight into the socket until it bottoms.

Reinstall the socket into the light assembly by turning it clockwise until it locks.

Test the lights to make sure the new bulb is working.

When reinstalling the taillight assembly, first place the two pins in the holes in place. Tighten the two mounting bolts.

Hope this is helpful to you.

Brake lights do not work All bulbs have been replaced.


Troubleshooting Procedures - Read Completely Before Beginning
(American Car) All Brake Lights Not Working
  • Check System Fuse: A fuse is used to protect the brake light circuit from amperage overload. If the fuse has failed it will not allow the electrical current to continue to the brake lights. To check the fuse, first locate the brake light system fuse in the fuse panel which is either under the dash or under the hood in the power distribution center. Connect the test light to a ground like an engine or dash bracket and turn the ignition key to the "on" position. Using the test light probe both sides of the fuse. If the test light illuminates on both sides the fuse is ok continue onto the next step. If one side of the fuse illuminates the fuse has failed and needs to be replaced. If the fuse fails as soon as it is replaced or when you apply the brake pedal the brake light electrical circuit is shorted to ground. Rarely a system short can occur, a car repair manual is needed to find the wiring schematic for the brake light circuit. Once the brake light wiring has been located inspect and repair as needed.
  • Check Brake Light Bulbs: All cars have three brake light bulbs that create the brake light illumination affect. If all of these brake light bulbs fail no brake light operation will occur. I know what you're thinking, you might say all three brake lights at once? But in reality one brake light went out at a time and you did not notice. People only tend to notice something when they almost run into the back of your car to help persuade them to inform you the brake lights aren't working. Remove any of the brake light bulbs to confirm the bulb is ok or burned. After the bulb has been removed inspect the filament and replace if failed. If the brake light bulbs are ok continue to the next step.
  • Checking the Brake Light Switch: A control switch is used to connect the brake light electrical circuit. This switch is located near the brake pedal lever. Basic switches have just two wires, power in and power out to the turn signal switch. Use a test light that is grounded and with the key in the "on" position test for power at one side (wire) of the switch, then press the brake pedal while testing the opposite side (wire). It should illuminate the test light, if electrical power is connected through the switch go to the next step. If no power is detected through the switch the brake light switch has failed and replacement is required. If your car is equipped with more than two wires integrated into the brake light switch a car repair manual is needed to locate the proper brake light circuit wiring.

Backup lights and top brake light


I'm not familiar with your vehicle but my guess would be to check the brake switch on the brake pedal. Get a wiring diagram online if some one has it or buy a Haynes Repair Manual. Threres got to be a wire that they all share. Find it and check it with a test light, have someone press on the brake. If the test light does not light and the switch is ok then the cable is pinched or damaged some where. You'll have to run new wire, I put some links check them out. I hope it works out for you.
