Sounds like a brake lamp switch or fuse. Check all fuses electrically, with a test probe you can purchase from any auto parts store. Go through each fuse with the probe touching the end or tip of the fuse after clipping the lead on the probe to a good ground. If the probe lights up at both ends of the fuse, the fuse is sound, if it only lights up at one end then replace that fuse and if the probe does not light up at all, that fuse is not active so turn on the ignition but dont start the motor. The brake lamp switch is attached to the brake pedal. It may have a single wire or several. All the switch does is connect the brake lamp circuit to an active supply rail so, The switch should have one active wire and the other wire should become active when the pedal is pressed. If it does not, replace the switch. If it does, then you may have two blown bulbs in the rear lamps or a damaged wiring harness to the rear lamps and you should seek the advice of a qualified person. Start with the fuses, then the switch, then the bulbs..and remember, you may have more then one fuse panel in the vehicle so check under the hood too..

Three places to look. 1) Brake lamp fuse, 2) Turn signal switch and 3) the brake pedal switch. Brake light power comes from the fuse up to the turn signal switch down to the brake lite switch on the brake pedal and then on to the light bulbs. Start by putting the 4 way flasher on. If the brake lites flash, then the bulbs are good. That eliminated the fuse too. so the problem is the other two.

Hi: I have a 1998 Chevy Blazer 4.3 The brake lights and turn signals don't work.... HELP


Sounds like you have a bad multiple function turn signal switch. A couple things to try With your foot pressing on the brake pedal, Press the four way flasher button up and down, press and hold it down, pull up on it, or wiggle it. If the brake lights come on during any one of those replace the switch. With the key in the run position pull, push, the turn signal lever slightly. If the turn signal or brake lights start to work replace the switch. Let me know if none of those work, they usually do, and I'll get you some more in depth diagnostic info.

I have no brake lights or turn signals on my 95 gmc truck. I have replaced the boards but no luck. Also have checked fuses.


OK if the fuses are good , use a test light and check to be sure you have power at the fuse terminals. you'll check from ground to the terminal on top of the fuse. you should have 12vdc. then , check for power at your brake light switch on both terminals while the brake pedal is pressed, it is located located on the brake pedal assembly. also , check your hazard flasher switch to be sure it is not on. if it was on, check your flashers, both the turn signal and hazard flasher. If everything checks out , your problem is probably in your turn signal switch assembly located in your steering column.

My break lights don't come on when I press the break pedal. The bulbs, fuse, emergency flashers and turn signals work fine. Other suggestions for what is wrong and how to fix? Thanks


you may have a bad brake pedal switch. When you press the brake pedal, the switch is not activating the lights. If everything else is working, it's most likely your brake pedal switch.

No parking front or rear, side markers, brake or dash lights.


Sounds like an earth / ground wiring problem at the rear lighting units, when the flashers are on and you press the brake pedal the power is back earthing through the flashers. Check all earth/ground points at the rear lights.....Good luck hope this helps

No turn signals brake lights or hazard on 97 Blazer


did you check the bulbs and the fuses with a test light? If they are ok,try pressing the brake pedal, and wiggeling the 4-way flasher button at the same time....if the brake lights come on, it's in the 4-way flasher switch.
