Hi, I have found in the past, these sort of problems usually originate in a poor earth/return path on the light cluster.

    No, it is usually in the area of the brake light units, the rear light clusters. Check. The wiring from the lamps , one usually goes to the body of the vehicle somewhere? Whilst checking, look for broken wiring or loose connection and corrosion. Try jiggling the wiring harness at the rear of the light assemblies, if the lamp comes on it is most probably in that unit.

SOURCE: Brake light and turn signal light not working

Did the new lens come with new sockets? If not damage may have occured there that you cant see. only other possibilty is wiring damage in the rear that may be hard to see. The condition you describe is simple "backfeeding" if you look hard enough youll either find bad sockets or damaged wires close to the lens that took the hit. Hope this helped. Thanks

My brake lights are not working all the time on my 2000 lumina I replaced light bulbs and brake light switch and still not working just every once in awhile. What can I do??


On most models the brake light circuit runs thru the turn signal switch. The third brake light does not. So it could be a problem with the turn signal switch.
A ground problem would also affect the parking lights.

If it is the blinker switch why do I not have brake light on right rear side as well as no turn signal


The brake light circuit runs through the blinker switch, which is how the turn signal is able to override the brake light.

I have a 1992 GMC Yukon 4x4 blazer just had it in the shop when it came out the lights are all messed up. headlights work high and low. driver side turn signal dont work , passenger side turn signal don't...


If those lights all worked properly before the shop "fixed" it, take it back to the shop and ask them to make it right. If they are reputable, they will correct the problem(s). If not, think Small Claims Court.

No turn signals, 1 driver brake light bad, ABS light on. 2002/2003 CVPI


Sounds like you have 'ground' issues. Apply the brakes using a broom stick or more apropriate tool so that the brake lights are activated. Then go to the brake light that is not bright enough. using a test-light with a sharp pointed probe, poke the ground wire close to the bulb (usually a black wire) make sure the test light is attached to a grounded bolt. if the brake light gets brighter with ground added, you need a new ground wire. Splice it in to the existing wire & attach it to a bolt. Lights should work better with proper ground. (each bulb has a positive post & neg. post, don't add ground to the side with power coming through it from Battery (+)(red light on test light) - probe wires FIRST with test light to find (+) POS. Hot wire, and leave that one alone.

If you are very sure the wires are good, then you need to replace the multifunction switch in the steering column. Be sure you have checked the wire harness for bare spots or a broken wire first. Hope this helps.

Brake lights dont work, Turn Signals all goofy


First thing i would do is chg. the break light switch, and make sure to chk. all grounds around tailights, sometimes if there is a ground problem it will travel back thru the hot wire to get a ground, witch in turn makes everything go wackey.

Turning signals dont blink


Problem is the Turn Signal "FLASHER" unit, 1.Turn on Emergency FLASHERS 2. Go under Dash while they are on Listen -for Clicking sound then feel for it 3. Should Be a Silver Round Unit About as Big IN ROUND as Half dollar coin 4. ok now Look Around for the SAME EXACT Thing Clipped onto Something Under dash At Driver side Usually Between Steering wheel and Center HUMP in Floor, 5. once you find it Take OUT the first One you Found Emergency FLASHER) and 6. Put it In Place of Turn Signal Flasher, 7. Turn off Emergency Flashers- Turn Key in "ON" Position but don't start then Try Turn Signals. Yaaaa !!!! they work ?? LoL hopefully this Does the trick, if they work Buy new one and Replace Always Use NEW For TURN Signals as they are used Much More than Emergency Flashers. Hope this is Good Instructions For you and Helps you Solve The Problem, Please DONT Forget to RATE ME Thank you Rejakwilson@aol.com
