Blinker switch in steering column may be bad. This switch cancels the brake light for one side or the other depending on which signal is turned on.

I assume you took out the bulb and tested it . If right one worked the sw was not likely your issue. If you have a volt meter check the socket or harness connector for a good ground. Does the parking light bulb work?

Check bulb and voltage signal to that particular lamp assembly/connector...socket should have 12v signal and other should have good path to ground....

Brake light not working


If none of the brake lights work, replace the switch on the brake pedal. You will find it by following the brake pedal lever upward. They cost around $15 at most auto parts stores, and are awkward but not difficult to replace.

Would a bad Flasher relay cause the brake lights not to work?


The flasher does not stop the brake lights from working. Check # 18 fuse in fusebox under lower left side of dash. if it's ok, the brake light switch, on the brake pedal arm is next. light green wire with red stripe is hot if fuse 18 is ok. Depress brake pedal, light green with no stripe should have power. if not, replace brake light switch. If light green wire has power with pedal depressed, combination switch under the steering is next. Remove the cover from around the combo switch {under the steering wheel}. depress brake pedal, light green wire should have power. If it does, pedal still depressed, orange with light blue wire & wire with light green & orange should have power. Those 2 wires are brake & rear turn signal wires. { The turn signal switch should be in the middle, not right position or left. while checking for power in the last 2 wires. Good Luck drvolt.

I have 1999 Blazer with brake light out on driver side only. All other lights work. Replaced bulbs but nothing changed. Swapped the working lights from the other (right side) with the driver side but...


THE BRAKE LIGHTS DO GO THROUGH THE TURN SIGNAL SWITCH. TO TEST, REMOVE THE PLASTIC COVER AROUND THE THE COLUMN, UNDER THE STEERING WHEEL. THE TURN SIGNAL SWITCH MUST BE IN THE OFF POSITION. YOU WILL NEED TO EXPOSE THE WIRES UNDER THE STEERING WHEEL. DO NOT DISTURB THE WIRES IN THE YELLOW JACKET. THEY ARE AIRBAG WIRES. YELLOW PLUGS YELLOW JACKETED WIRES ARE AIRBAG.THE WIRE IN QUESTION HERE IS YELLOW BUT IT IS NOT IN A YELLOW JACKET, [ SLEEVE ]. NOW, PUSH ON THE BRAKE PEDAL. THE YELLOW WIRE IS LEFT REAR TURN & BRAKE WIRE, DARK GREEN IS RIGHT REAR TURN & BRAKE WIRE. BRAKE PEDAL DEPRESSED, IF BOTH OF THOSE WIRES HAVE POWER, ALL OF THAT IS OK. IF THE YELLOW WIRE HAS NO POWER TURN SIGNAL SWITCH IS BAD

Brake light switch staying on flattening battery


The switch is located above the brake pedal, about six inches. Sometimes there is a rubber stopper attached to the brake pedal assembly that closes the switch. If it is missing, nothing pushes the switch. Put a small bolt through the hole with a nut.

2003 Nissan Sentra Brake lights stay on


When you depress the brake pedal, the brake pedal will move away from the brake light switch and cause a close circuit and the brake lamps light up. There is a rubber bunk on the pedal which pushes against the brake light switch to shut it off when you release the brake pedal. Most likely this rubber bunk has either fallen off or disintegrated leaving a hole in the brake pedal so there is nothing to push against the switch to shut it off. Look up the brake pedal until you see the brake light switch, then depress the brake pedal to see if the rubber bunk is still there. It is easy to replace. Or you can use some double sided adhesive tape and a coin and stick the coin over the hole in the brake pedal.

Brake light stays on. I can push brake pedal switch and lights go off. There are holes installed from factory on brake pedal arm where switches suppose to make contact. What's up with that? Can you help?


The hole in the pedal arm is for the cruise control. There is a plastic plug that needs to be in place to turn off the brake lights. They should be available at any dealer - there is also one for the clutch pedal arm in manual trans. These are required for the cruise as well as to turn off the brake lights. I bet that several will now be able to have their cruise back.
