Did you check the taillight bulb? Likely is is the same as the brake light. If the wire inside does not connect the two wire prongs the bulb needs to be replaced.

The bulb actually has two seperate elements in it.
That is why the tail light works fine.

If you take the bulb out you will see the seperate elements.
Change the bulb and it should be fine.

I had a similar issue with my lincoln, it turned out to be the wiring to the socket, was corroded and broken. Since you have done the other things this would be the next plausable place to look. hope this helps

Hell i just bought a chevy cavlier and my back break light is out...the light its self is on...its just the break light when pressed...


you don`t say if its both or just one brake light out.you say the light itself is on but not if you mean tail light or what.the tail lights use a different filament in the bulb than the signal light which is the same filament that the brake light uses.if the signal light work on the rear then the bulbs are good,if just one side works then the bulb is no good on the side that doesn`t work.if the signal lights work but neither brake light works then you need to check the fuses in the fuse panel under the dash on the drivers side.if the fuses are good then it will be either a bad wire at the brake switch or a bad brake light switch,this is located on the brake pedal lever under the dash.

Right brake light does not work when running lights are on


sometimes a bad ground can cause this. when the other lights are not being used the brake light can backfeed through another bulb to get a ground.

Use a 12 Volt test light at the tail light connector and see if power is present at the harness, this would indicate a possible defective bulb socket.
