Brake light Switch near the brake pedal shaft is out of adjustment, or broken or wire disconnected or very bad connection. Otherwise a bad connection to the taillight assembly or a break in the wire between the switch and Taillight. Jumper the switch to test whether that is the problem. Test the Tail light by jumper from known good power to test whether it's the wire from brake light switch to the Tail light assembly.

SOURCE: break lights not working its not the bulbs or the fuse

If both the bulbs and fuse are good, the most likely problem is the switch mounted at the top of the brake pedal arm.

SOURCE: 96 Chevy 4x4 Break lights don't work and fuse is good

Have you checked the brake light switch under the brake pedal? It may be out of alignment with the pedal lever or dislodged from it's connector. If it is still in the right position, check if pedal travel compresses the switch, if not adjust it so it does. If everything is in order and it still doesn't work, replace the switch. Hope this helps. Best wishes.

SOURCE: Tail Light Problem

If you get power at center terminal with a test light, (careful, don't touch side of socket.) then try grounding (clamping) test light to outside of socket (which is your ground for bulb) . If test light doesn't light, it's bad ground.

1977 Dodge Tioga, my breaklights were working and the blinkers weren't, I tried putting in new bulbs for the blinkers but as soon as I did that the break lights stopped working. Is it a fuse?


Could be a fuse but if it is you probably did something that caused a short circuit. Fitting a wrong bulb is not unusual.

Unlikely both rear blinker bulbs would fail at the same time. It is better to work towards a diagnosis by checking the bulbs, testing for a supply and a good ground than replacing bulbs and hoping.

A little used hazard warning light switch is often the cause of sudden indicator failure or even partial failure. A couple of minutes of rapidly operating it on and off often put matters right.

1997 lumina break light in back window works all park and signals work but no rear break lights is it a fuse


Did you check to see if the bulbs are any good? Is power reaching the bulbs? If not, why? Bad wire, bad fuse?

Until you find the problem assuming the bulbs are good, since the rear window brake light is good, you can always tap that hot line and run it to the hot of the bulb not working and now all will work.

Break lights don't work, shift is locked out!


Since these are all electrical, I suggest you look at the fuses. I am sure you will find one burned out. I would guess that you replaced the bulb while the power was on, and that is not a good idea. It is easy to blow a fuse by doing that. If you put the bulb in wrong, it is possible it may keep blowing fuses as well. Make sure is it seated correctly, if this is the kind that rotate.

Break lights not working properly


hi
silly thing to sugest but would you have the brake/side light bulbs in the wrong way? if you look closley at the bulbs there is two pins either side on the round silver part. 1 pin sits higher than the other, make sure you fit the bulbs in the bulb holders to match the pins on the bulb sounds complicated but it realy is an easy mistake to make.

Almost sure it is a recall for a relay. Call the dealer, I had a 2001 VR6 with the same problem, and it was a simple, free recall.

Right read blinker/break light dont work, turn signal blinks rapidly


It's the bulb. There are two filliments in the bulb. One is for when you turn your lights on and the other is for breaking and blinker flashing. When the break filliment goes bad it causes the blinker to flash very rapidly. 100% the bulb. Change it and all will be good again. P.S. if it were a fuse none of the break lights or blinkers would work.
