You have to use a voltmeter and start tracing the wiring starting at the taillights. Check for 12 volts working your way up the wiringf to the front of the vehicle

GM's are funny,The brakes are wired thru the multi function switch. Blinker switch. Try rocking the switch every direction. You may get lucky and get them to work again. But you most likely will need a new switch.

Brake Lights don't work on the back of our 2003 Ford Windstar


Did you actually check the brake light switch for power in and out ?
There are two different fuses, one for each side. And the circuit includes the turn signal switch.
The third brake light bypasses the turn signals.

My break lights dont work.fuzes and bulbs are ok ?


For starters it is spelled "Brake" light...LOL . Sounbds like you may have a brake light switch that has gone out. In yor owners manual does it show more than one fuse for the brake lights? Most vehicles with a thrid/highmount brake light split the brake light power to either the left and third brake light and the right brake light or vice versa, or posibble 3rd brake light on its own fuse. I would check if all of the brake light including the 3rd brake light dont work. If no lights work at all it leans toward the switch which controls all or them to activate hence the brake light switch. It should be mounted on your brake peal arm or to the main base. The pedal lever activate the switch when you depress the brake pedal.

2003 chevy 1500 rear brake lights not working, but over the cab break light is. bulbs look good, the running lights work.


sounds like a bad turn signal switch . both side brake lights run through it but the third brake l;ight runs direct from the brake light switch .- play with the hazard button a few times and if the start working you need the turn signal switch

Brake lights will not come on. It is not the bulb. The tail lights work.


The tail lights working would not necessarily mean that the brake light bulbs are good. If they are the type that have a double filament (ie: one filament for the tail light and another filament for the brake light ) the brake light filament could be bad and the tail lights still would work. If they are either single filament type bulbs or double filament type, I would check the bulb, fuses, and contact switch on the brake pedal.
