None of my brake lights are working

If you checked the bulbs of course then the next thing to check is the brake switch behind the brake pedal. No working switch, no brake lights. Also fuses should be checked and any realys on the circuit.

I have a 1989 GMC Sierra c2500. When I press on the brake pedal, my brake lights do not come on. At first I thought the bulbs were burnt out, but when I took the bulb out and tested it with electricity it...

Buy a cheap test light to run simple tests to see where power is being lost. Start at the brake light fuse. Clip the ground lead of tester to a metal bracket or bolt under the dash. Then use the tester's probe to touch the little indents on top of the fuse. There are two indents on each side of tops of fuses-these are test ports to check if a fuse has blown. The brake light fuse will be "hot at all times", so touching the metal strip inside the indent should light up the test light. If not, check if your ground clip is good: turn the key to on. Now every fuse in the dash panel should be powered. Every fuse should light up the tester. If both indents on a fuse light up the test light, that means it is a good fuse. If only one side lights up the tester, that is a blown fuse.
Now back to the brake light fuse, key off. Does it show power? If not, maybe a fuse link off the battery that distributes power to the fuse panel has burned out. If fuse shows power at both ends, move tester to the brake light switch and check for power at the switch-this wire to brake switch is again "hot at all times". Should have power in, and when brake pedal is depressed switch should also have power out. From the brake switch, the brake signal wire goes up into the turn signal switch, and is then routed out to the brake lights. With pedal depressed, you can check for power in and power out at the turn signal connector. Don't pull the connector apart, but back probe the connector with the test light probe. You know the color of the brake light wire from brake switch to the turn connector, so easy to check for power in. Power out should be on two wires, one for each side of the rear lights. If the turn signal switch has power in but no power out, with brake pedal depressed, probably a defective turn switch.
Post back with results, or when you find the problem.
Good luck.

My running lights work my turn signals work why don't my brake lights

You either have a bad brake light switch or a bad fuse that powers your brake lights. Go to your fuse panel and check the fuse first. If it checks good then check the brake light switch. The switch will be located on the brake pedal at the top. There should be two wires into the switch. One will have power at all times. as you depress the brake pedal it makes the connection in the switch to the other wire which then sends power to the brake lights and illuminates the bulbs. Use an electrical tester to make sure you have power in and power out when the brake pedal is depressed.

Brake lights not working

Check fuse for brake lights first. If you have and are afamiliar with a test light test power through line. Fuse, light sockets and bulbs for power transfer to rear and then finally check the brake light swithch and if the brake light switch (on top of the brake pedal is good then look for a break in harness or wires going back to brake lights.

Brake light dont work. 2006 chevy truck, 4.8L 2wd

Some of these had two fuses for brake lights. One for the top/center stop lamp and another for the rear left and right brake lights. Usually one said "stop" and the other said "brake" and one was in the underhood panel while the other was in the dash fuse panel. It's not uncommon to blow a brake light fuse [LR and RR] if you tow a trailer but some of these had seperate fuses for the trailer lights also. If you have a test light check both sides of the two fuses for power [ignition key on] while stepping on the brakes. It should at lest narrow your search a bit.

Have a 1995 jeep cherokee that both brake lights went out. all other lights working, signals, reverse, but not brake lights. fuse? have no owners manual. also a right hand drive

Most likely the fuse, if the fuse is good, then check the brake light switch, that is under the dash, near the top of the brake pedal.
Press on the brake pedal with your hand and see if the button is popping out, if not, tap on it and see if it pops out, if not, replace it.

Brake lights not coming on when brake is applied.

Check all the brake bulbs first. If that is not the problem check the fuse for the lights. If that does not solve the problem then you will need to replace the brake light switch that is mounted under the driver dash that will be near the brake up toward the top.
