Question about 2000 Chevrolet Malibu

1 Answer

My driver side brake lights won't come on.

I have a 2000 Malibu. I always have a problem with the brake light bulb going out. Usually I would just change it and it would be fine for a while. Now however, it won't come on at all. Mind you, it is only the driver side light. The thing I can't understand is, the same bulb that is the tail comes on, but when I hit the brakes it doesn't "brighten" like the one on the other side so I get no light. Also the bulb socket right next to it doesn't come on at all, so it definitely is something with brake light. I also checked the wires that go into the panel and they all seem to be okay. Any suggestions?

Is there any corrosion in the socket? if not its possibly a ground problem in the socket.

2002 Chevy Malibu. Left side brake lights not working. Brake lights come on when car is started, so I know that (new) bulbs are fine. Any ideas? Right side lights are fine.


the socket (or board) that the bulbs are on are known to go bad. its actually a common repair. the lights coming on when vehicle is running is just a parking light not the brake light. you either installed the wrong bulb(needs to be a double filament) or the board is no good. Good luck

Right break light is not working on my 2000 malibu. Switch light bulb but break light does not work. Turn signal works and hazards work..


is it both lights? If yes, check 15 amp stop light fuse first. If good, check brake switch above pedal.

If only one brake light isn't working, you have a broken wire. See diagram below to trace wires.

Tail lights do not work all lights work but the back lights do not work. I change the fuse but lights still don't come on. all the other lights work is there other fuses i need to replace


if the bulbs are ok! check bulb socket to see if you have power.with test light, if not make sure sockets are clean. check the bulbs first, because they are a double filiment bulb. for brakes and tail lights. did you change the correct fuse!! it is located in interior fuse box on drivers side end of dash. its on bottom left side of fuse box. its labled "stp lps". hope this helps,
