Why does the brake light sometimes not work


Open it up and you will probably find something loose at the bulb socket, either a wire or the socket itself may be bad. Try holding the bulb in firmly while someone hits the brake a couple times. Maybe you'll see the problem. That brake light is simply spliced into your other rear brake lights. So, unless the splice has worked partially loose, the problem should be at the high mount light there.

The brake light it's on all the time


If your rear brake lights are on all the time, I would first check your brake pedal. Near the top of the pedal, probably just about where the pedal is attached to its pivot, you'll see a little switch that is either pressed in or released when you step on the brakes. That's the switch that controls your rear brake lights. As an experiment, have a helper look at the brake lights while you manually pull or push this switch all the way in and out. These switches wear over time and can stick in position. Fortunately, they're not expensive to replace, if that turns out to be the problem.

If your brake light switch seems to be working properly (hard to tell if the brake lights won't go off), a second possibility is that there's a short somewhere in your wiring and your brake lights are getting power from the shorted wire. I think this is a pretty unlikely cause, because most of the wires that rub up against the brake light wiring are for your turn signals and tail lights, and these are not normally energized. If you said that your brake lights always came on when you activated your turn signal or when you turned on your other lights, then this cause would be much more likely.

Check your brake pedal switch and the wire connections to it. I have a feeling that you'll find your problem.

The brake light won't go off


Your brake pedal switch is bad, causing the brake lights to remain on all the time. Have it replaced.

Push brake paddle no brake light


The brake lights are not working due to fault in brake light fuse. Or the other reason is fault in wirings if the fuse is checked out OK. If both the brake light fuse and wirings checked out OK then its time to check the brake light switch. To find the switch follow the brake pedal up and look for a small black plastic switch with a small wire bundle going to it. Grab hold of the switch and gently try to push up or down on it. Many a times moving the switch solves the problem in other cases the brake light switch needs to be replaced. Thanks.

98 Ford Explorer Brake lights not working,top brake light does


I had a similar problem like this with my 98 explorer once; neither brake lights worked and the top one stayed on very dimly at all times. It turns out both of my brake lights went bad at exactly the same time, which for some reason made the top light stay on. Felt like an idiot, but all I needed to do was change the bulbs.
