Well your parking lights should not come on when you start the car unless you have turned on light switch. Most cars you must step on the brake to start, so the brake lights would be on. Your problem maybe a burnt out bulb on rear window lite.

TEST: have someone watch the rest and push on brakes see what lights. If 2 tail lite then its blub.
If non light its the fuse in box underdash.
Now take foot off brake and turn on lights and emergency flashers walk around check all lights then step on brake and see if brakes light up.

Replace bulbs or fuses as needed.

Hope this helps Mike

Sounds like you need to check the ground for the taillights.

I have a 2009 Chevrolet Impala, and I want to remove the third brake light to black it out to match the main taillights. How do I get the third brake light lens out?


open the trunk and remo0ve the interior trim panel on the trunk lid. You will see a couple of nuts that hold the lens in place.

How do I replace Brake light switch?


Make sure the switch is the culprit. Do the other taillights work when braking? if so, look for a problem elsewhere, such as wiring to the 3rd light. Give special attention where the cable is routed through the trunk lid.

1998 Chevy Monte Carlo. Brake lights won't work.


you give some good clues. because your third brake light works but not the other two, and because you sometimes get brake lights if you have turn signals on at the same time, i would say that some wires got crossed up with your other taillights. check out the power wires back in the taillight assembly and the wires that run back to the taillights. something is mixed up back there, now you just have to find it. if all else fails after you isolate which wires are the brake light wires get some new wire, same gauge and roughly same length, remove a bit of insulation but don't cut the wire in two, and put the new wire in as an overlay. if having the new piece of wire there makes the brake light work you found the break in the wire. you can cut out the bad piece and fasten the new piece in. you can solder it if you have the equipment to do that, or you can buy some squeeze in place connectors at the car parts store. either way, good idea to tape it up when you are done. hope that helps

The right brake light sensor is located in the trunk area by the right rear taillight assembly.

My third light is working but brakes lights are not...i was told if switching the flashers on and off could knock possible dust off the circuits that could be making the problem happening


check the turn signal switch. The right and left brake lights go through that switch. you might need to repair it or replace it. does the signal lights work?
