Look up under your dash just above your brake pedal and you should see a switch with some wires connected to it. This switch controls your brake lights and has most likely gone bad

Is it just one reverse light not lighting or both? The transmission has a switch that turns the reverse lights on when you shift to reverse, that could be bad OR if you have a Chilton or Haynes manual, look up the wiring diagram for the brake lights to see if they are on their own circuit; if it is a solo circuit then you could have a blown fuse.

    Sorry about that...I thought you were talking about the Reverse lights...you were talking about the brake lights, weren't you? Well, brake lights have a switch mounted near the brake pedal...when you step on the brake the switch closes and the lights come on. It is most likely that if your other lights are working.

Right tail light not working when pressing brake w/ lights on.


There should be at least 2 bulbs in the light assembly. One light is the light that is on when you turn on your headlights with out the brake pressed, the other light only lights up while you press on the brake. Make sure you are replacing the correct bulb. You may have been replacing the bulb that stays on. Your lights may be set up to turn off the light that stays on when the headlights are on while pressing the brakes.

Brake Lights


The brake lights are engaged by a switch when you press the brake pedal. It is a plunger type switch, then when released, turns on the lights.

It appears that the plunger is not extending and making the connection. Try press on the brake pedal with one hand, and plull out on the switch plunger, see if the lights come on.

You should be able to replace the switch for less than $10
