Maybe you accidently disconnected the wire to the brake switch behind the brake pedal?

All of those problems happen with a bad ignition switch so you must have bought a bad one from auto zone or you connected it wrong.Did you change the ignition switch or the key cylinder in the steering column because there is a difference?The ignition switch supplies power to the fuses.

2003 silverado abs/brake light and service 4x4 light comes on heater blower quit working at the same time.


Possible bad ignition switch. Check out video on YouTube called 2003 Trailblazer, no blower, abs and brake lights on. I know it says trailblazer, but it applies to most of gm full size trucks. 2003-2007 including Silverado. Video tells you how to test to see if that is the problem.

I have no BRAKE lights either side 1988 chevy silverado


There is a switch under the dash that is actuated by the brake pedal arm. Take a look at that and make sure it is properly being depressed or released with the movement of the brake pedal. You will need someone to watch the brake lights while you mess with it. Good luck.

90 chevy silverado lights not working


You must have a bare wire at the back of your truck that's shorting out where gravel stones have pounded the outside coating off. If you have an after market trailer plug on there, you might want to check that out too. The connections to your main wires from the trailer plug, are never done properly, and always cause problems somewhere.
