If the bulbs are good check your brake light switch. It is located near the top of the brake pedal under the dash, that is probably your problem.

My brake and hazard lights don't work on my 2001 Chevy Astro Van. Turn signals work fine, running lights work, and the top brake light works fine. Replaced bulbs, no change, fuses are fine. Where do I look...


Buy a cheap multimeter and measure your voltage at the bulb when the brake lights are supposed to be on. You should have 12vdc. Is your 3rd brake light and brake lights on the same fuse? If not, measure to see if you have 12vdc at the fuse itself.

2004 honda crv brake lights don't work


Did you check the fuses with a test light? A fuse can look OK, but unless you test continuity or use a test light, you could be mislead.

No brake lights, blubs and fuses ok. center brake light DOES work


Usually when the third brake light works but the regular lights don't the problem is in the turn signal switch.
I would check for voltage there.

No brake lights, tunr work fine but not the brake


Under the hood. Fuse panel behind the battery. It doesn't look like your standard fuse, but it's a square blue (20A) socket that you just remove by hand.

Brake lights not working but third brake light works?


Check your fuse for the brakes, if fuse is blown replace. If not fuse go buy a package of brake light bulbs at the auto store. Then replace the bulbs.

Hope this helps

Right brake light out; tail light works fine


most rear tail lights and turn/stop lights are the same dual filiment bulb. it is possible for your tail light to work and your brake light not to and still have a bad bulb. I would check the bulb first, your brake light works on the left yes? this would mean that the fuse is fine

Brake light not working


First ensure the bulbs are fine.

Check and replace the fuse in your fuse box.

If it keeps blowing after replacing the brake lights fuse, then there is a short on the wires, you need to check wiring.

If fuse is ok and there is no brake light check wiring to the lights, there is a broken connection or an open wiring to the brake lights.

Note: brake lights are usually not dependent from tail lights, they have separate wiring.
