No brake lights


The power goes from the brake light switch to the turn signal switch then to the lights. The third brake light circuit bypasses the turn signal switch.
You would need to check for voltage on the light green wire between the brake switch and the turn signal switch, then on the wires going to the lights to see if the turn signal switch is faulty.

Is there an adjustment for the stop light switch on a 99 GMC Yukon. I have replace it and my brake lights still do not work. Park lights work fine.


There is no adjustment. The park lights are on a different circuit than the brake lights.
Do you have a third brake light that works. Its also on a different circuit but works from the same switch. Do your turn signals work. They use the same filament as the brake lights.
Also, the brake light circuit goes through the multi function (turn signal) switch.

Since the brake lights and turn signal lights use the same filament in the bulbs, the brake light circuit will pass through the turn signal switch. When a turn signal is used it cancels out the brake light for that side.

Let me know if your third brake light and turn signals work in the rear.
Also, if youy have not already, check/change the bulbs. The type of sockets those lights are in also get burned so look at them well.

Window break light good but actual break lights not working


sounds like you have a bad turn signal switch.

If the third brake light is working than we know the fuse is good and the switch is good. The third brake light bypasses the turn signal switch. If the rear turn signals are working than we also know that the wiring from the switch to the rear bulbs is also good. The brake lights and the turn signals are on the same bulb so the turn signal switch is what determines if the bulb gets power from the brake light switch or from the turn signal flasher. If the switch is bad usually the first thing that stops working is the brake lights.

Typically you can wiggle, jiggle, pull, push on the switch lever with you foot on the brake and get the brake lights to work. Sometimes turning the four way on and off several times will also get the brake lights to work. If this is the case than a new turn signal switch will solve you problem.

If you have any questions let me know!

2001 Town & country brake lights not working, but the third brake light and tail lights are working. I also just replaced the brake light switch thinking it was the problem, but it wasnt


I think the brake light and turn signal are on the same bulb on these, correct?

If so do the turn signals work?

If they do than I would bet that the turn signal switch itself is the problem. The power for the brake lights is routed through the switch (except for the third brake light that is supplied power directly form the brake switch). The turn signal switch will interrupt power from the brake switch and supply power from the turn signal flasher depending on if the right or left turn signal is engaged.

Sometimes wiggleing the lever or pushing the four way flasher button with the brake pedal depressed will intermittantly cuase the brake lights to work. If this is the case than it is the turn signal switch that is causing the problem.

Brake lights not working. bulbs are good. brake light switch working correctly. turn signals & tail lights work correctly. The third brake light is working correctly also...


better get a second look at the brake light switch, there might be two, third brake light is on a different circuit, switch light circuit goes to signal switch then brake lights

Rear brake lights, rear turn signals inoperable. bulbs replaced and are working, simply not responding to brake or turn signal?


If the third brake light always works, then it is the turn signal switch. If the third brake light does not work, it is probably something else. The turn signal switch is in the steering column. You have to remove the airbag and steering wheel, take out all of the componets and replace the turn signal switch. Special tools are required and a moderate level of mechanical ability. Watch the airbag, it can go off and cause serious injury!!
