If the center brake light works but not the others, and the bulbs are good, the problem is usually the turn signal switch.

Running light problem on chevy express 3500 box van


Vehicle electric trouble shooting is the worst. Some of the problems you described the bulbs may have multiple filiments with only some burned out. It may sound silly but change the bulbs. Get a couple of new bulbs and try them in the different spots. Time, road vibrations and spring pressure causes the contacts on the bulbs to wear until they get a poor connection then you get a little arcing that build up a residue and a bulb that test good doesn't work.
Your on the right track with the ground wire. Try a test lamp with a good gound connection and test the different sockets, if your test light works but your bulb doesn't you have a ground fault. If neither work check the switch and fuse before you start tracing the wiring. These are just general trouble shooting tips It's very hard to trouble shoot electrical problems sight unseen.

I have a 2004 chevy silverado. my brake lights stopped working so i replaced them and still nothing. the only one that works is the brake light on top of the cab. any suggestions?


If all bulbs are good is most likely printed circuit board that bulbs plug into, very common to go bad. HELP/motormite sells them in 2 pack for both sides. Available in any auto parts store for less than the dealer charges.

There is a probable bad wiring connection in problem one and three.
