Question about 2005 Pontiac Sunfire

My brake lights and both signal lights do not work. I tried replacing a bulb in the signal light to see if it was just burnt out but it doesnt work. Why would they all stop working at once?

The most common cause would be the turn signal switch.
You would need to check for power in and out of the brake light switch, then the turn signal switch to find the problem.

If your brake lights and turn signals are out, you most likely have a blown fuse, burnt bulb, or a problem in the steering column.----------------------------------------------------------------------

Rear Turn signal is not working


Aren't your brake lights and turn signal lights on the same bulb, same filament? Recheck the bulb in the rear, as the rapid blinking is an indication of a burnt out bulb. If the bulb is the correct one and is good, check the connector and socket at the housing for a loose or poor connection.

I have a problem with my 1978 chevy pickup tail light. It is the left tail light that doesnt work when I press and the brake and the signal. And the light bulb is good. but when i put on my parking lights...


the cheapest thing to do is change any and all bulbs in that tail light. if 1 is bad it can effect all of them. hopefully you don't have a short somewhere. but i would try the bulbs first, they're only a couple dollars and usually the problem. gl

Have a 2003 Chevrolet silverado, right rear tail light does not burn when lights are on, this light will burn when brake is applied or when turn signal is used. What is the problem and how can it be fixed?


There are 2 filiments in the light bulb. One is for running lights and the other is for brake and turn signal lights. Simply replace the bulb and you should be ok.

1998 chevy lumina: rear window brake light not working, left brake light not working, rear left turn signal not working


See if bulbs have burnt out in the left brake light and rear turn signal (one bulb if combined) and also rear center high mount brake light.

If the left turn signal has a slower speed than the right turn signal, this is a symptom of a bulb or bulbs burnt out.

Usually, the wiring is not a problem, but I would not rule wiring (or sockets) as a problem out.

Good luck on this repair.

3rd. left brake light is out replaced it and still doesn't work


You may need a signal light switch.
If your brake and signal use the same bulb,the brake light power is directed through the signal light switch.
Dodge has had problems in this switch with this exact problem.

What do the relays and fuses look like under the hook of a 96 s 10 blazer. Someone said to check theses and how do you. My brake lights dont work and the 10A fuse under the dash is good and i replaced the...


Did you check or replace the brake light bulbs?
It is more common to have burnt bulbs than a bad brake light switch or blown fuse.
Do you have orange signal lights and red brake lights at the rear?
Then the signal light switch will not affect the brake lights.....but....
If they are all red and you use the same bulbs for brake and signal....the brake light wiring goes through the signal light switch and could be affected there.
First....check for power getting to the brake light switch......and leaving it with a test light.......then go to the rear....pull a light assembly and check for power getting to the bulbs.no power? follow the wiring back to the switch looking for a bad connection.
The fuses and relays under the hood are usually in a black plastic box labeled fuses and or relays.

Chevy trailblazer - brake lights do not work


try checking the brake light switch attached to the brake pedal,very common problem. has about 5 contacts in it ,they all operate different things. If you have a scan tool with live data readings you can watch them all. also check fuses and bulbs ,but you say the signals work so that seems ok.
