Did you replace with new bulbs? If so and they still don't work, try the brake light switch by the brake pedal.

No break lights got tail lights an third brake light replaced bulbs


If 3rd light working then brake switch is not the problem, so it is looking like a wiring problem near to the rear light cluster. Run a live feed to the brake lights to rule out a faulty bulb holder. Probably not a ground problem as tail lights work, but wouldn't hurt to check that out.

No rear brake lights and rear turn signals not working either front turn signals blink rapidly 2001 chevy HHR all fuses good all bulbs good no power to rear sockets 3rd level brake light works


Your front signals flash rapidly because your rear ones aren't working and that is normal and shows that a bulb in the circuit is out. At least that means the problem is not with the operation of the signal....good. Also your 3rd brake light works which shows the brake switch is working. Again...good.
Everything so far points towards your rear light clusters being at fault, although both at the same time is somewhat unusual.
You don't mention rear lights that come on with headlights or the reverse and fog lights. If nothing is working I would check the earth/grounds and the connection blocks that carry the power to the light clusters, but again both at the same time being faulty is suspicious and if the reverse, fog etc is working then why not the others?
I don't know about your model, but is there a separate fuse for the rear lights that are out? Probably not but worth a check.
Have you recently had something changed on the vehicle, or inspection work done? Maybe wires/connectors/grounds etc have been damaged or disconnected/reconnected wrongly in that area.
Try running a live directly to the cluster to see if that makes anything work as it may show a circuit break as the problem.
Sorry I can't be of more help.

Why won't my replacement 3rd brake light work?


The 3rd brake light does not flash with the flashers. It works independently and only with the brake pedal. Have someone step down on the brake pedal while you check to see if the light comes on.

My break lights dont work.fuzes and bulbs are ok ?


For starters it is spelled "Brake" light...LOL . Sounbds like you may have a brake light switch that has gone out. In yor owners manual does it show more than one fuse for the brake lights? Most vehicles with a thrid/highmount brake light split the brake light power to either the left and third brake light and the right brake light or vice versa, or posibble 3rd brake light on its own fuse. I would check if all of the brake light including the 3rd brake light dont work. If no lights work at all it leans toward the switch which controls all or them to activate hence the brake light switch. It should be mounted on your brake peal arm or to the main base. The pedal lever activate the switch when you depress the brake pedal.

3rd brake light not working,the other two are ok micra


The wires going into the right hand rear brake light has a red,green wire with a silver band. This is the wire that powers the 3rd brake light. Disconnect the wireing plug from the light fitting and meter out the red/green and silver wire from there up to the 3rd light, this will prove if there is a break in the wire ( most likely are is inside rubber grommets at tailgate hinge. ) This will prove the wiring. I got a spare piece of wire and ran a jumper cable from the silver track on the light fitting relating to the green red and silver wire ( top left track ) to the light fitting and another wire to earth, activated the brake and the light came on proving a break in the wire.

No brake lights but 3rd light works all fuses are good


Sounds like a broken wire somewhere.
Since the middle brake light works I would suspect it is somewhere in the trunk or close to the back seat.
Buy or make a tester. A 12v light with a clip on one wire that you clip to a good ground on the car the other wire with a sharp point. Turn the turn signals on then poke wire to rear lights until tester lights. When tester lights you know the break is somewhere inbetween the tester and the brake lights.

Hope this helps.
