Your brake light switch has gone bad. The switch is located on your brake pedal and is a relatively cheap and quick fix. The switch, as it sounds, controls the brake lights from going on and off when the pedal is pressed. Replace this switch and your brakes will be back to normal. Please let me know if you have any further questions. Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!

1986 dodge 3/4 four wheel no brake lights have turn signals running lights power to the switch and new bulbs


Turn signal and brake lights operate from a different switch. The brake light switch is under the dash behind the brake pedal. Look under the dash and follow the brake pedal up until you see a switch which the pedal operates. Normally a white plastic switch with two wires. Disconnect the two wires and touch them together. If brake lights come on replace the switch. If not use a 12 volt test light to see if there is current to one of the wires. If not, check for a blown fuse. This should solve your problem. If not, contact me for further information,

Right blinker blinking fast and then now sound or light on either right or left and brake light does not work now.


when you have a fast blinking light the front or rear turn signal is probably blown and for your brake light check your fuse.

Window break light good but actual break lights not working


sounds like you have a bad turn signal switch.

If the third brake light is working than we know the fuse is good and the switch is good. The third brake light bypasses the turn signal switch. If the rear turn signals are working than we also know that the wiring from the switch to the rear bulbs is also good. The brake lights and the turn signals are on the same bulb so the turn signal switch is what determines if the bulb gets power from the brake light switch or from the turn signal flasher. If the switch is bad usually the first thing that stops working is the brake lights.

Typically you can wiggle, jiggle, pull, push on the switch lever with you foot on the brake and get the brake lights to work. Sometimes turning the four way on and off several times will also get the brake lights to work. If this is the case than a new turn signal switch will solve you problem.

If you have any questions let me know!

I have a 96 town car


Ok. First of all, chk all the bulbs. Well at least the four parking lamps. The ones that are supposed to flash. One or two are burnd out. It happens. The flasher(s) work on resistance and that is provided by the bulbs.Brake likes and the turn signals are electrically associated.and you already said one side does not work, so let's start with bulb inspection Let me know

Have a 2005 chevy colorado, i installed a four way harness exactly how the directions say, but when i connect the trailor only the right and left turn signal and taillights work. No break lights.


On the truck, are the turn signals and the brake lights using the same bulb, if the brake lights are using a different bulb the trailer might not work withe the truck if it only has a 4 wire plug, might have to add brake lights to the trailer and use a 5 wire plug, yes this means rewiring the trailer and adding lights

Left brake light stays on


Usually when your signal blinks rapidly it indicates a blown bulb.   Switch on your four-way flashers and check your bulbs at each corner.  On the brake light staying lit, check to see if the left-rear bulb is installed correctly and is the correct bulb for the application.  I've seen people force bulbs in sockets causing the braking element of the bulb to light instead of the parking element.  The braking element is much brighter than the parking element.
