Last year my brake lights were staying on while driving and now this.

Check the wire connection to the brake light, follow the wire as far as you can, A pinched or split wire can minimize electric current flow enough to cause a light to flicker or dim, also check Fuse Box,

SOURCE: 3rd Brake light doesn't work on a 2005 Malibu

The most common reason for the 3rd brake light not to work is mostly due to a blown bulb, some cars have two or three bulbs in the 3rd light, start by replacing the bulb and go from there. good day.

I have a 2010 chewvy malibu and the thrid brake light comes on. but not the actual taillight portion of the brake lights. checked the fuses. does any one have a wiring diagram for this vehicle.


That is usually an indication of a bad turn signal switch. The lower 2 lights pass through it first so the turn signals can cancel the brake light as they share the same circuit.

3 rd brake works sometimes 2010 chev. malibu


You obviously have a poor connection there somewhere. I'm sure the dealer will help, but whether or not this is warranted may be another issue. A third brake light can't ever be that hard to repair for a dealer.


Try checking the electrical connector which goes into the brake light.

Hello, Well there is not much more it could be unless you have a shorted wire or a burned fuse. I would normally think that the turn signal canceler was bad but the 3rd brake light will still work if that is bad so I would check all fuses and for bare or shorted wires.

Brake lights don't work, one in back window works but ones on tail lights don't checked bulbs and fuses and they are okay


I would check the wiring to the 2 side lights, and make sure they are grounded or none has been cut or corroded. You have good power going to the rear if the 3rd brake lite is working fine so I would trace the wire from the 3rd brake light to where it splits and goes to the 2 rear brake lights...
