    I check the wire comming from the left bulb on the car and it works. When I check the same wire at the male hookup on the car it does not work. I am not getting any power from the bulb to the male hookup on the car. I cannot follow the wire from the bulb to the hookup.

Tail Light/When I BRAKE The left Directional STOPS

Ernest, a lot of the time when this happens it is telling you the bulb burnt out or wire/socket is faulty(bulbs can look OK so it is best to test them if you can). Check/clean for corroded ground wires in that area also. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Brake light only working on left side

On many cars the brake light and directional use the same filament. Suggest turning on flashers and parking lights. If the light is not blinking check/replace the bulb. If parking light works would assume at least the ground connection is OK

Already replaced the left brake light bulbs on 2004 Pontiac grand am. They only light up if left turn signal on, which is same 4 bulbs I need to light up for the brakes. Any other suggestions??

All rear brake lights on the GM vehicle line go through the Directional switch inside the column. I have found this to be bad on some N-Bodies... but also if it has a separate Hazard flasher unit and switch, you may want to try that first.. easier to replace and less expensive... all brake lights and directionals go through that unit as well.

Left brake light and directional doesn't work

Check the bulbs first. If your front signal is on, then your electrical is working, and the problem is in the bulb. If not, check fuses! DO NOT PUT A LARGER FUSE IN THE FUSE PANEL THAN IS RECOMMENDED!!

Hi, I have a couple of questions.
1. were the signals working before you replaced the brake light bulbs, and did you use the recommended bulbs?
2. Do the brake lights work now?

The brakes and signals use the same filaments, so these things are tied together.

I replaced a cracked rear tail light with an after market new light. Now the brake light won't work but reverse lights and directional signal do. The bulbs are fine as I've moved them around and...

  • If there are no brake lights period the check the stop switch (brake light switch)
  • This is attached to the upper part of the brake pedal itself. Should be a little wire off of it. When that goes bad the brake lights will not work at all.
  • Please note that the fuse for "brakes" is ABS only and has no bearing on the brake lights themselves working.
