Check the brakelight switch at the bottom of the brake peddle it could be out of adjustment, with the brake peddle released the switch should just push in a little bit and with the peddle pushed a little the switch should be away from the peddle to turn the brake lights on, hope this helps you.

I have a 91 ford f150 and the brake lights wont work and the rear right blinker is dim. Can you help me?


Check System Fuse - A fuse is used to protect the brake light circuit from amperage overload. If the fuse has failed it will not allow the electrical current to continue to the brake lights. To check the fuse, first locate the brake light system fuse in the fuse panel which is either under the dash or under the hood in the power distribution center. Connect the test light to a ground like an engine or dash bracket and turn the ignition key to the "on" position. Using the test light probe both sides of the fuse. If the test light illuminates on both sides the fuse is okay continue onto the next step. If one side of the fuse illuminates the fuse has failed and needs to be replaced. If the fuse fails as soon as it is replaced or when you apply the brake pedal the brake light electrical circuit is shorted to ground. Rarely a system short can occur, a car repair manual is needed to find the wiring schematic for the brake light circuit. Once the brake light wiring has been located inspect and repair as needed.

Check Brake Light Bulbs - All cars have three brake light bulbs that create the brake light illumination affect. If all of these brake light bulbs fail no brake light operation will occur. I know what you're thinking, you might say all three brake lights at once? But in reality one brake light went out at a time and you did not notice. People only tend to notice something when they almost run into the back of your car to help persuade them to inform you the brake lights aren't working. Remove any of the brake light bulbs to confirm the bulb is okay or burned. After the bulb has been removed inspect the filament and replace if failed. If the brake light bulbs are okay continue to the next step.

Checking the Brake Light Switch - A control switch is used to connect the brake light electrical circuit. This switch is located near the brake pedal lever. Basic switches have just two wires, power in and power out to the turn signal switch. Use a test light that is grounded and with the key in the "on" position test for power at one side (wire) of the switch, then press the brake pedal while testing the opposite side (wire). It should illuminate the test light, if electrical power is connected through the switch go to the next step. If no power is detected through the switch the brake light switch has failed and replacement is required. If your car is equipped with more than two wires integrated into the brake light switch a car repair manual is needed to locate the proper brake light circuit wiring.

Brake lights dont work, changed the fuse its was ok, changed the switch on the pedal , still not lights. flashers work, turn signal work, but not the brake lights. where to look next


Hi, your van does not use the signal filaments for the brake lights. You must have a wiring issue. Check for power at the brake light switch. If you have power there, the wire is broke from the switch to the S304 junction. If there is no power to the switch, the wire is broken between the fuse box and the switch. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Have a dodge 1995 Van and Brake lights won't come on. Replace light bulb and fuses.


Under the dash, follow your brake arm up and you'll find a switch that this arm pushed against (brake light switch). Check to make sure your getting power to one side when the brake isn't applied, and power to both sides when you apply brake. Use a test light.
Hope this helps.

the fuse is labled 'brake'

I would replace the fuse... and then have someone stand to the rear of the vehicle and watch the lights come on as I applied the brake... if the fuse blows again... note which tail light did NOT come on durring this test and replace the bulb.. it is grounding to itself and causing the short.

There is a shortage some where at the brake bulb and low beam holder. Take off the bulbs and inspect carefully those losing wires attached to the ends can cause the problem. Good luck.

All of the bulbs for the brake lights are new all


Brake light switch, think it should be under the brake pedal. when brakes are applied, the pedal compresses the switch, which makes the brake lights come on.

I have the same problem with my 2004 Trailblazer LT. Driver side brake light does not illuminate. All other lights work fine. Replaced bulbs. Still does not illuminate. Cannot figure out which fuse goes to this light. Could it be a fuse?
