Question about 1997 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme
All the brake lights will not come on after changing brake light switch. What else should I check? I also smelt a burning smell about a week or 2 prior to all brake lights going out.
Make sure the brake switch is working. Leave it hooked to the wire harness and work it by hand while someone checks the lights. If the switch works it just needs to be repositioned on the pedal and adjusted. If it doesn't work, check the fuse. If the fuse is burnt or burns out again you have a burnt wire. Start tracing them out one at a time looking for a burn mark. I'd start with the power wire first. It's usually red or orange,it's the most likely problem. Cut out the burnt piece and splice it back together. Tape it up well and look for anything it could rub on to prevent this from re-occuring. This should get you back on the road.
