Is the fuse for the brake lights OK?
Check for power to the brake light switch at the brake pedal and for power coming from it with brake pedal depressed.

    The brake light switch will be mounted above the brake pedal pad up behind the dash.It is turned off and on by the brake pedal.
    Look for wires going to a switch in this area.Some of the wires should have power in them with the brake pedal untouched and others should have power with the pedal depressed.

I am probably too late for this one, I had previously posted a fix for this problem. But here we go again. If you have checked the fuses, brake switch and you are still having the problem, the you will need to replace what is called the multy function switch it is the same one that you turn your healights on and offm high beam and turn signal. Good luck

1995 mazda 626,front left turn signal doesn't work (blinks rapidly on dash)Only when the headlights are on, 4 way emergency flashers work fine. Bulbs ok. changed flasher it's ok. ???


I hear what you are saying however....whenever there is a bulb that is not good....you will get rapid flashing on the dash. Replacing the bulb is cheap...do it as a test if nothing else.

High beams work for both lights, 1 low beam does not


Check for power with a test light with the light connected. If you have power then its the ground. If no power then you will need to trace the wire back to find break. As I recall they did have seperate fuse for left and right headlight high & low beam. Also did you get a defective new bulb?

On 92 Mazda mx3 running lights in don't work but


check if power getting to bulbs, if is then the bulb holders may well be distorted due to heat and are not allowing bulbs to seat properly so renew the bulb holders , if no power to the bulb holders and the fuse is ok then its either a wiring fault , check the earth wire from the light cluster if ok them must be the switch

My left brake light/turn signal isn't working! I replaced the bulbs and turn signal flasher! Still not working! Its 2000 Chevy s10 blazer


If the other brake and turn lights are working the brake light and flasher units are ok . With a test light check at the bulb holder terminal and bulb holder body, test light should glow ,if not check from terminal to a metal part of panel away from the light body . If test light now glows the brake light body has a bad earth if the test still not glowing the power cable to the light is broken.

Im replacing a tail light circuit board on both rear lights, is their any special way to do this


just check accurately bulbs if you mixed it could happen like that, some cars for the brake lights use two contact bulbs some of them single contact, two contact bulbs can give two signals which one is used for brake ligths and another for taillight, so check the bulbs carefully

Fog lights on my 2003 mazda 6 not working. fuse & relay are both ok, but no power going to the bulb. is there another fuse other than in the drivers compartment panel?


probably corrosion on the ground wire to the bulbs or the wire to the bulb did he check from chassis to connector or just take the bulb out sounds like you need to find a real mechanic
