3rd brake light works 2 lower ones dont


Not sure what type of vehicle you have but your brake lights may be on a separate fuse from the centre high mount stop lamp.

Or..both bulbs may be out...one can fail and not be noticed..no brake lights will be noticed.

Only high-level brake light works. What's wrong?


Your lower brake lamps are wired through the multifunction switch. The high-mount brake lamp isn't wired that way.

At the lower rear, the turn and stop use the same bulb filament, just not at the same time.

I'd have to check circuits to and from multifunction switch. Sometimes you can get under the dash, find wiring harness to/from steering column, If you can find the proper color wire for lower brake lamps, see if voltage on that wire with brake activated, if no voltage, the problem could be the wiring in steering column or multifunction switch.

Why doesn't the high level brake light work?


High level brake light is connected , in parallel with, all other brake/stop lights.. It is not on a separate fuse, so, check, or replace the other stop lights.
Or could be a bad ground on brake lights, but not on high level light.

Brake light is working but not the tail light?


There are three fuses involved.
There is a 25 amp fuse before the brake switch located in the fuse box under the hood. Then there are two 15amp fuses after the brake switch in the box inside the cabin. One is for the lower brake lights and the other is for the high mount light and the trailer connector.
You would need to know if the 15amp fuse for the lower lights has power when the brake pedal switch is applied.

The lower brake lights are not working


Check the bulbs with an ohm meter or other functional test method. If they are still showing good and light up then check the bulb sockets for power at the pins, if no power at sockets and rear chassis gropunds are good follow the wiring harness up to the cab and look for damaged wiring, if none is found you could have a defective turn signal switch or 4 way flasher circuit..

Rear brakelights dont come on fuses and bulbs are fine rear window brake light works


If the high level brake light works, then the brake light circuit is fully functional.

Brake light bulbs may LOOK fine, but can still have failed. Often folks don't notice that one bulb has failed until the second one has blown; it's then easy to incorrectly assume that the fault is more complex.

Try replacing the brake light bulbs: if that doesn't work then please report back for additional options.

My brake lights won't glow brighter under braking?


sounds like the brake light switch on brake pedal has gone bad one way to check is find the switch it will have two wires pluged into the switch they can be dificult to get to they are located some where down low to the floor board on back of pedal find it and unplug the conector with a peice of wire or paper clip make a jumper between the two wires dont worry 12volts will not shock you but once jumper wire has been installed between the wires dont let it touch any metal parts or it will short out and blow fuse hope this helps

Brake light problems on a 2000 chevy lumina


Will your Center High-Mount Stop Light (CHMSL) illuminate when you depress the brake pedal, but the lower/outer lights will not?
-- Do you have to hold the signal lever in a certain spot to get the turn signals to flash?
-- Do you have to hold the signal lever in a certain spot to get the lower/outer brake lights to illuminate?
-- Will the signals work in one direction, but not the other?
If you answered yes to any of the preceeding questions, your turn signal switch is likely malfunctioning.

**One more question before we continue: Is the turn signal lever not "cancelling" (returning to the "off" position) after you make a turn? If this is the case, you have a broken "cancelling spring."


Before you begin disassembly of your steering column, verify the turn signal flasher is not malfunctioning. If your brake lights work fine, but not the signals (either direction,) then it's likely the flasher is burnt out. The flasher itself is located underneath the dash near where the steering column passes through the firewall
