You will need to replace the brake light relay. The rear brake/hazard/turn signals run off of the same relay. Also, if you have a towing package, there is a "T" connector under the rear of the bumper that may have come loose. Dis-connect then re-connect to see if it fixes your problem.

The brake light switch located above the brake pedal may be faulty or needs adjustment.

Three places to look. 1) Brake lamp fuse, 2) Turn signal switch and 3) the brake pedal switch. Brake light power comes from the fuse up to the turn signal switch down to the brake lite switch on the brake pedal and then on to the light bulbs. Start by putting the 4 way flasher on. If the brake lites flash, then the bulbs are good. That eliminated the fuse too. so the problem is the other two.

I have a 1993 honda accord i just recently lost my brake lights i put in a new brake light switch and all of my brake lights started working except my right brake lights? please help


If you don't have power to the right brake light when the switch is engaged, I would check the turn signal switch. On some models the brake circuit goes thru the turn signal switch. Also be sure and check the ground connection on the bulb socket.

2 of 3 brake light bulbs dont light up when brake pressed only when lights are on do all 3 bulbs light up, only on the right side, left bulbs turn on, I changed fuses and bulbs no luck


Chek the light harness ground connection, for each "faulty" bulb. l suspect the brake lights are detecting the gound from the running lights, which is the only time they all function.

Have a 1999 Chev. Suburban. Problem is with brake lights. Top panel (on roof) works but neither side panel works. Replaced circut boards in tail lights, new bulbs, and all fuses are good. What next?


WITH A GOOD FUSE TESTER, TEST ALL THE FUSES FUSEBOX UNDER THE HOOD & INSIDE THE VEHICLE. IF THE FUSES ARE ALL GOOD WITH THE TESTER YOU MUST HAVE A BAD BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH OR A BAD TURN SIGNAL SWITCH. THE BRAKE LIGHT CIRCUIT GOES UP THROUGH THE TURN SIGNAL SWITCH & THEN TO THE BRAKE LIGHTS. FIRST OF ALL IS THE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH GOOD ? THE ORANGE WIRE FEEDS THE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH, THE WHITE WIRE PUTS POWER TO THE TURN SIGNAL SWITCH, SO THE LIGHTS CAN BE USED AS TURN LIGHTS OR BRAKE LIGHTS. , PUT A TESTER IN THE WHITE WIRE & PRESS ON THE BRAKE PEDAL. IF THE TEST LIGHT LIGHTS UP, BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH IS GOOD, BY THE WAY THE BRAKE LIGHT FUSE MAY BE LABELED" STOP", THE FUSE LABELED" BRAKE" IS FOR THE ABS SYSTEM. TO CHECK THE TURN SIGNAL SWITCH FOR BRAKE LIGHTS, REMOVE THE PLASTIC COVER FROM UNDER THE STEERING WHEEL, PRESS ON THE BRAKE PEDAL, PUT THE TESTER IN THE SMALL YELLOW WIRE, THEN THE SMALL GREEN WIRE. IF THERE IS NO POWER IN EITHER WIRE, THE TURN SIGNAL SWITCH IS BAD.

CHECK ALL LIGHT BULBS IN THE BACK. PROBABLY HAVE A FEW BAD BULBS THAT ARE BURNT OUT COMPLETELY. CHECK LICENSE PLATE LIGHTS ALSO. CHECK FUSES TOO TO MAKE SURE THE TAIL LIGHT FUSE IS GOOD.

I need a wiring diagram for a the brake lights, when the brakes are pressed the lights dont turn on, i've checked the fuses and all the bulbs are fine , i also jumped the connector for the brake switch and...


there are two switches on altimas one brake switch is to cancel the cruise control if you have it on your vehicle, and the other is to control shift interlock (shifter when you press on brake pedal to relase) and the lights. this switch has more than two wires to it and they are very easy to replace but study them a bit before attempting, it just takes some twisting.
you might have jumped the wrong switch. it is common for the brake switches to go out, so my advice is to replace it. don't forget to check power supply to circuit (fuses) and older models tend to short out at the bulbs because the socket puts pressure on the lead contacts on bulb and brings them together
causing a short circuit that you forever will try to find in the wiring

Check to see if the brake light switch is working first by putting a jumper on the switch that is located just above the brake pedal arm.
This switch is pushed when you press the brake pedal, and turns on the brake lights just like turning on a light switch.
I may be out of adjustment too.
Otherwise, you may have all the brake light bulbs burned out.
I would try a new bulb in one brake light first.
