The brake peddle switch is loose and needs adjusting.
It is located below the steering column and touches the brake pedal.
Adjust it so that the button is pressed when the brake peddle is at full rest (up).

Taillights are not working. Brakes lights and turn signals fine, but no taillights. Checked the fuse and it's okay. Any ideas?


Try unplugging the connector from the brake light switch( under the dash on the brake pedal arm) Install a jumper in the plug and see if the brake lights come on. If they do, the switch is bad. The new switch must be adjusted correctly or the brake lights will stay on all the time. This circuit has power even when key switch is off.

Tip

Both Lower Brake Lights Not Working


Check Brake Light Bulbs: All cars have three brake light bulbs that create the brake light illumination affect. If the lower two bulbs fail no lower brake light operation will occur. I know what you're thinking, you might say two brake lights at once? But in reality one brake light went out at a time and you did not notice. People only tend to notice something when they almost run into the back of your car to help persuade them to inform you the brake lights aren't working. Remove either of the brake light bulbs to confirm the bulb is ok or burned. After the bulb has been removed inspect the filament and replace if failed. If the brake light bulbs are ok continue to the next step.

Checking the Turn Signal Switch: Most American cars are designed to have the brake light switch wiring intergraded into the turn signal switch. Because the brake light bulb and the turn signal bulb are one and the same the turn signal switch interrupts the brake light circuit and installs the blinker signal circuit when the turn signal switch is activated. If this switch fails it will not allow the brake light signal through to the brake light wiring. To test for this condition a car repair manual is needed to test incoming and outgoing electrical current. If brake light switch power is present at the turn signal switch but not at any outgoing brake light wires the turn signal switch has probably failed.

Replace my brake switch on my 2000 Dodge ram pick up and my brake lights still don't work


Brake switch must be adjusted such that it is depressed with pedal up and released as soon as pedal is slightly depressed.

2005 chevy trailblazer - no cruise control and brake lights only work when key is turned off


I would check the turn signal switch. The cruise and turn signal are on the same switch. The brake lights go through the switch before going to the brake lights. And the turn signals don't work with the ignition off.

Running lights work but no blinkers or brake lights. Changed fuses and bulbs no luck


I'm inclined to believe it is the turn signal switch. When you select left or right, the brake light is removed from that side, and the flasher is connected to the bulb instead, making the brake light on that side flash as the indication that you plan to turn. You have lost everything, but the simple answers check out.

If you have lost signals, brake lights and tail lights, then it is more likely that the ground supplied to the bulbs is not working, since the tail lights share noting in common with the brakes lights and turn signals but ground.

If the tail lights work, the fact that the brake lights and rear turn signals share that switch starts to look meaningful — even more so if the front turn signals also don't work. But the front signals and the rear signals use different circuitry in the switch, so it would be something more mechanical in the switch than electrical in that case.

1992 Ford Ranger Turn signal/Hazard light issue


Can you just check to make sure the ignition key switch is not staying over to far and not backing off when you try to start it. I had a truck that did that and it messed up my turn signals until I brought the key switch back a little after starting it. Just a simple idea. Be kind with your rating for me. Raz

I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee. My problem is that when the engine is ON my left brake light WILL NOT light up when the brake is applied... BUT when the engine is OFF, and the brake is applied, the...


the only thing that should separate the right and left brake light is the turn signal switch i think if tis vehicle has seperate light bulbs for the turn signals and brake lights it will not involve the turn signal swicth. either way ther is a voltage loss somewhere. test with a voltmeter at the brake light switch with the engine on and off,if it is vastly deferent go back to the fuze and ceck both sides of that,then back to the ignition switch.you should probably locate a wiring diagram.if the brake light and turn signals are the same bulbs you will need to ceck the turn signal switcth.this is removeable after taking off the plastic cover behind the steering wheel and held on by two scews very small torx head scews.it is referd to as a combination switch.

1966 mustang sequential turn/tail/brake lights/signals are ALIVE!


Recheck ALL the wiring, check the brake light switch and signal switch. Either on could have gone bad due to its age. Them suspect the controller for the lights. What do the 4 ways do? I think I would be suspecting the signal switch.
