I have a 1989 GMC Sierra c2500. When I press on the brake pedal, my brake lights do not come on. At first I thought the bulbs were burnt out, but when I took the bulb out and tested it with electricity it...


Buy a cheap test light to run simple tests to see where power is being lost. Start at the brake light fuse. Clip the ground lead of tester to a metal bracket or bolt under the dash. Then use the tester's probe to touch the little indents on top of the fuse. There are two indents on each side of tops of fuses-these are test ports to check if a fuse has blown. The brake light fuse will be "hot at all times", so touching the metal strip inside the indent should light up the test light. If not, check if your ground clip is good: turn the key to on. Now every fuse in the dash panel should be powered. Every fuse should light up the tester. If both indents on a fuse light up the test light, that means it is a good fuse. If only one side lights up the tester, that is a blown fuse.
Now back to the brake light fuse, key off. Does it show power? If not, maybe a fuse link off the battery that distributes power to the fuse panel has burned out. If fuse shows power at both ends, move tester to the brake light switch and check for power at the switch-this wire to brake switch is again "hot at all times". Should have power in, and when brake pedal is depressed switch should also have power out. From the brake switch, the brake signal wire goes up into the turn signal switch, and is then routed out to the brake lights. With pedal depressed, you can check for power in and power out at the turn signal connector. Don't pull the connector apart, but back probe the connector with the test light probe. You know the color of the brake light wire from brake switch to the turn connector, so easy to check for power in. Power out should be on two wires, one for each side of the rear lights. If the turn signal switch has power in but no power out, with brake pedal depressed, probably a defective turn switch.
Post back with results, or when you find the problem.
Good luck.

I have no brake lights. I checked at the fuse box under the hood and found it OK. Then I went to the foot peddle switch and found the switch OK but when I checked for power going into the switch none could...


Do you have turn signals ok?

Is your rear turn signal bolb the same one used for brakes?

Some turn signals are amber and some are red using the same bulb as the brakes. In that case the brake lights go through the turn signal switch.

But you would have power at the pedal switch.

No relay but there should be a fuse in the dash anel or under the hood if you have a battery box under the hood. Your owner manual will tell you where the fuses are and which one is hte brake. Usually a 15 amp.

Need wiring diagram for 1971 chevy nova, there must be a backfeeding problem. when i turn parking lights on green turn signal arrows on dash glow. only one brake light works. put new brake light fuse ok....


The problem is probably a bulb. When the filament blew out it crossed over to the other side of the bulb creating a back feed. Change the bulbs out one at a time and Im sure you'll find the bad one.
If that doesn't work check the grounds on the radiator support.

No brake lights, turn signals, or 4-ways.


Did you actually check the bulbs? I believe your brake lights, signal lights, hazards all use the same bulb for each side.

Your brake lights may be your brake switch just above your brake pedal.
The signals could be your electronic flasher module (EFM) located under the dash near the steering column.
Your hazards may be affected by the EFM, but not likely and the switch for your hazards may be faulty

Try removing the bulbs from the rear tail lights you have one 2 bulb system shorting out, so one at a time remove the bulbs then replace the fuse and see which one is bad or just buy new bulbs and replace, also could be front running light blinker light. But sounds like brake light to ground threw bulb.

If the fuse is ok then I would look into replacing the turn signal switch. This is not a very difficult task at all. If you have the hazards then your flasher unit would be ok. If there is only one bulb out then you are probably looking at the switch.
