Rear side brake lights won't work after fuses/bulbs replacement

The rear brake lights on either side of my 98 Discovery LSE don't work only the cyclops does, even after I have replaced all of the fuses and bulbs related to these lights.
What else could be the problem?

If the high level brake lamp works and the other 2 lamps have good bulbs, then there is a power loss, most propably with the installation. You should go to an auto electrician to see where the break is.
If someone has recently done any work on the electrics, you should recheck. It is not a seperate fusable power supply system or brake switch for the high level brake lamp, it will take its power from the fused system that the other 2 have.
Hope this helps

Location of brake light switch fault on 2002 discovery freelander


The brake light switch is on top of brake pedal arm. Check your bulbs, and connections to the rear lights (unplug harnesses and clean the connectors as well as bulb(s) etc... )

Also, it (shouldn't) be the brake light switch if you can shift out of park. Good luck.

98 Chevy Tahoe, drivers side rear tail light assembly wont work, brake / turn signal. Replaced entire assembly, it worked for about 3 days then stopped working again. I need to get this fixed before I get...


I've got the same problem on 98 GMC Sierra.

I'm an electrical engineer, I checked the electrical diagrams and verified that there is no problem in the rear lamp assembly or wiring. With the light assembly unplugged, I can actually watch the blinker and brake signals operate with a voltmeter. The Tail light works OK.

It simply won't provide enough current to light the bulbs.

I'm afraid that it's melted one of a pair of normally closed contacts inside the blinker switch that feed the brake and turn separately on each side.

1998 Chevy Cavalier Z24 left rear brake/turn lamps will not work


Sometimes even a new bulb will not work. If you have a Digital Multi Meter you can check that you have power going to the rear. I know that sometimes when a vehicle loses a bulb in one end that it can make the other end stop working. With that said, I suggest that you double check to see that the front works. I used to own a 98 Cavalier RS with the 2.2 liter motor and I know that there are fuses under the hood and behind a little door on the drivers side in the car. Might check fuses under the hood also.

Rear lighting


check with a voltmeter at the bulb contacts while someone is hitting the brakes if there is no current. its the wire they rot and a discovery has daisy chained rear lighting. so if the left or is it the righ is bad. then they both wont work. either way if one goes they dont work. its not hard to run a new wire ive done it for car max a dozen times on these vehicles.
