Check your brake light fuse,if thats good check the plunger switch on the back of the brake pedal and see if you have power there,if you have power there then the problem lies in the connection from there to the rear brake lights or possibly your brake light bulbs,but rare cause all bulbs dont usually burn-out simutaneously

Tip

Brake Lights Dull or Flickering - All Cars



Dull or Dim Brake Light Repair: If your car has a dull or dim brake light it is dangerous to you and other drivers. A dim brake light is a mystery to most people because the bulb is working, just not correctly. First confirm a new and correct brake light bulb has been installed. Next, turn the ignition key to the "on" position and have a helper depress the brake pedal. With the bulb installed touch a grounded test light to the outer bulb holder ring. If the bulb brightness changes the bulb socket ground has high resistance and needs to be repaired or replaced.

Flickering Brake Light Bulb Repair: A flickering brake light bulb can be very distracting and annoying. A brake light flickers because the power or ground is being obstructed momentarily. The most common cause for this condition is a loose fitting bulb socket. To check for this condition remove the brake light bulb in question, while a helper hold their foot on the brake pedal move the bulb around slightly in the socket. If the bulb flickers replace or repair the bulb socket as needed to regain proper brake light bulb operation. If the brake light bulb socket tests ok wiggle the brake light fuse and wiring at the brake light bulb socket, brake light switch and turn signal switch (American cars). If the brake light bulb flickers repair the component or wiring as needed.
Preferred Procedure: Always replace brake light bulbs with manufacturers recommend replacement bulbs. If you cannot find the correct replacement bulb part number consult an auto parts store for additional manufacturer information.
Common Problems
When brake light bulbs are replaced with the incorrect bulb causing no or dim brake light operation
If the brake lights stay on continuously it could mean the brake light switch has failed or an adjustment is needed.

2006 brake light will not go out


Light gets power from brake light switch/.May be switch got shorted an brake light getting non-stop power causing it not to turn OFF brake light.

Get the brake light switch checked. Check volt at brake light switch.

It can be faulty brake light switch causing the problem or its wiring short for switch.

Turn signal tail lights and BRAKE LIGHTS NOT WORKING


It can be faulty brake light switch causing the problem or its blown brake light bulb. First check and confirm brake light lamp is working and that's not the case.

For turn signal not working it can be faulty turn signal switch or its issue with wiring:----

(!) with a squiggly line in-between 2008 dodge caravan


Sounds like a brake light. Check your brake fluid and fill to the correct level if low then see if it goes out.

The Brake light says "BRAKE" is the Brake System Warning Light: "This light monitors various brake functions, including brake fluid level and parking brake application. If the brake light turns on, it may indicate that the parking brake is applied, that the brake fluid level is low, or that there is a problem with the anti-lock brake system (if equipped)."

Another is the Anti-Lock Brake System Light: "This light monitors the Anti-Lock Brake System. The light will turn on when the ignition switch is turned to the ON position and may stay on for as long as four seconds. If the ABS light remains on or turns on while driving, it indicates that the Anti-Lock portion of the brake system is not functioning and that service is required. However, the conventional brake system will continue to operate normally if the BRAKE warning light is not on."

It could also be the Tire Pressure Monitoring light. Check the brake fluid first and see if that fixes it.

Brake light stays on after car is turned off. Fix?


Most likely the brake light switch located down on the brake pedal lever has either malfunctioned, or is out of adjustment, and when the brake pedal is in the "up" position the brake light switch should be fully depressed, and if it is not then dis-connect the wiring connector to the brake light switch and then turn the brake light switch in until it just fully depresses the brake light switch, and then tighten the locking nut(s) and reconnect the wire connector to the brake light switch, and then test to see that the brake lights are working properly.

If the brake light switch seems to be adjusted properly, then dis-connect the wiring connector to the brake light switch, and if the brake lights go out then replace the brake light switch and adjust it as described above.
