Break lights dont work but blinkers and other lights do all bulbs are fine but when u push the breaks they dont work


Check under the dash for the switch hooked to the brake pedal assembly, this switch activates your brake lights, push the brake pedal with your hand does the plunger on the switch move? if not see if you can pull it down if you pull it down see if your brake lights are on if yes replace switch. if no, check it for power with a twelve volt test light, if you have power replace the switch. if no power check the fuse for brakes lights see your owners manual for location. Good luck.

My break lights dont work.fuzes and bulbs are ok ?


For starters it is spelled "Brake" light...LOL . Sounbds like you may have a brake light switch that has gone out. In yor owners manual does it show more than one fuse for the brake lights? Most vehicles with a thrid/highmount brake light split the brake light power to either the left and third brake light and the right brake light or vice versa, or posibble 3rd brake light on its own fuse. I would check if all of the brake light including the 3rd brake light dont work. If no lights work at all it leans toward the switch which controls all or them to activate hence the brake light switch. It should be mounted on your brake peal arm or to the main base. The pedal lever activate the switch when you depress the brake pedal.

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited - Break lights will work if the head lights are turned off, but when i turn the lights on the break lights won't work.


If you recently had a brake light bulb changed, you may have one or more brake bulbs installed wrongly on your jeep, shorting out when the lights are turned on.

Break lights not working properly


hi
silly thing to sugest but would you have the brake/side light bulbs in the wrong way? if you look closley at the bulbs there is two pins either side on the round silver part. 1 pin sits higher than the other, make sure you fit the bulbs in the bulb holders to match the pins on the bulb sounds complicated but it realy is an easy mistake to make.

My break ligths dont flash


Unless both bulb filaments went out, there is a switch that the brake pedal sits on when released. It should be located under the dash above your foot. You shouldn't miss it. When the brakes are applied, the switch pops out activating the lights, it sounds like that switch may be faulty. Hope that works

Right rear brake light still out after replacement with new bulb.


Well, the first this to do is get a test light and have someone depress the brake pedal while you check for power at the bulb socket. If you have power, the next step is to check the ground. Just hook your test light to power and see if the light comes on when you touch the ground part of the light socket. In my experience, most light issues are caused by a ground problem. If the ground turns out to be the issue, you can cheat and just run a short jumper ground wire from the light socket to a ground anywhere near the light.
