Sounds like either both bulbs need replaced or a wiring problem. Check bulbs first if they are fine use a test light to see if there is current to the bulb if no current trace back to see where current stops and repair. Also if you have current check your groundsfor the brake lights.

SOURCE: parking lights work third brake light works,just not back brakes?

The bulbs do not need to be replaced! The answer to this problem is believe it or not in the turn signal lever, or multi-function switch. It is extremely common on these cars, and usually mis-diagnosed. Try this before going any farther. Back the vehicle up to a wall, or have a person stand behind the car, and pull the turn signal lever slightly towards you as if you were switching between hi and low beams. I guarantee that when you put just a little pressure on the lever your brake lights will work. If you want the problem fixed, you need to have the switch (and lever arm) replaced from inside the steering column, and you need someone to remove the airbag to do this. The switch is roughly $200 from an aftermarket parts store. If you learn to drive your car and just know that when you brake you can pull back on the lever to make the lights work great, I did for a few years in mine. But I guarantee that is the answer to your problem

SOURCE: 99 JEEP BRAKE LIGHT WONT WORK..THIRD BRAKE LIGHT WORKS

on chrysler products the third brake light is run independant of the body control module, try checking the fuses that run the brake lights and see if any are faulty if not check you have voltage at the switch and a signal getting to the lights.

I have a 1995 GMC Sierra an the third eye brake light comes on but the other brake light dont work


Could be both bulbs have burned out at once. Or could be the brake light switch. The third brake light and the normal brake lights operate seperatly. Or could be the wires.

Cruise dont work and 3 brake light dont work


Hello carrollrll,

Fix the third brake light and that should resolve the cruise control issue.

The cruise control circuit that deactivates the cruise is through the third brake light.

Brake lights dont work,fuse good ,bulbs good,third light works


The third brake light switch works off a module for it is a sealed unit with a inverter that takes 12 volts beefing the voltage to 110 volts for the light emitting diode lights in it. It these terms you will need a new brake light switch located by the brake pedal

No turn signals or brake lights on left and right but brake light on top


I agree. My brake light dont work. Only the third brake light does. The running lights work but when i apply the brakes the rear tails dont light up.
I currently have this issue along with the signals dont work unless I bang the top of the steering colum. The hazard switch doesnt work either. If the signals dont work it makes this very quick clicking sound on the passenger side. I checked the fuses and they are good. The bulbs still work. The brake switch works cause the third brake light goes on. And seeing as I am having a problem with signals.....GM says I have to replace the switch in the steerg colume. Its a little box about the size of a cigarette pack. If you take apart the panels off ( right behind the steering wheel, where the hazard switch is) ...that is where it is located. Its plugged into the signal lever. Hope this helpa....Good luck everyone with this issue.
