Question about 1996 Chevrolet Blazer

1 Answer

My third brakelight works but the left and right ones do not

I have checked the fuses, replaced the bulbs and brake switch. I use a multi meter to determine that I have power at the switch and it is working properly. Does any other suggestions of what I may need to look at?

P.S. I have running lights, turn signals, and hazard lights.

What number fuse is my brake lights in a 1998 mercury mystique fusebox


Sounds like loose wiring to either the earth or Postive connection in the main running wiring. rechk all connections particuarly yr pull off/on connections. Most fuses run at 10A for lights, but this depends on how many using this fuse. Chk that power is getting thru to various points with a meter, this will show u where the porblem lies. cheers

Neither brake light will come on when I get on brake.Changed the fuse and bulbs already. keyless device only work sometimes. Put new CR2016 batteries in. Please help!!!


suspect a bad brake light switch,on the brake pedal itself.the key need not be on when checking the brake light switch.but requires 2 people.one to insure the brake lights come on,one to push the brake. theres a switch on the brake pedal itself. look above the brake pedal pad that you push to apply the brakes. you will see a plunger that moves in and out,just to supply the current to the brakelights.if the plungers out of sync,it will not work. or it may only be stuck.or simply bad,if it moves and brake lights do not work. if the plunger works on visual inspection,and is plugged up,the switch is suspect to be bad. thank you,for choosing fixya.com!! SIMPLE SOLUTION,CHECK THE BRAKE LIGHT FUSE. IT MAY ONLY BE BLOWN. UNDER THE DASH ON DRIVERS SIDE CLOSEST TO YOUR LEFT FOOT WHEN APPLYING BRAKES. WITH FLASHLIGHT,CHECK FOR BLOWN BRAKE LIGHT FUSE. if this fails,check for blown brakelight bulbs. unlikely that both brake light bulbs blown at once! but not unusall. thank you for choosing fixya.com!!

check to make sure that you have the correct bulb in the correct socket in both left and right tail lights. dual filament bulbs have to contacts on the base of the bottom of the bulb. make sure the socket that you are inserting them into also has two contacts. if that doesn't work then you need to get a test light so you can find out if power is going to the bulb housing and all ground. check all fuses also with amp meter

Left turn signal doesnt work and my brakelights


  1. Check the fuse make sure it is not busted and also use a designated amp only.
  2. Check the bulb and the wires also.

My rear lights don't come on when i turn my headlights instead my 3rd brake light comes on


Hi there,

Your rear brake bulb wiring is connected to the high stop light, but when your problem occurs, it usually means there is a short in one of the brake bulbs (or associated connectors).

Firstly, inspect the brakelight fuse (just in case the rear lights are on a separate circuit).

Secondly, check for blown brakelight bulbs (and replace if necessary).

Thirdly, remove the bulbs and ensure they are the correct type (i.e. the bulb contacts must match the bulb holder - usually double contacts). If you have the incorrect contacts type, this will cause a short also.

Hope this helps...
