Make sure that you have the correct bulbs installed and cleanup all the sockets with some WD-40. do your hazard lights work correctly? if not then check the fuse for the hazard/stop light. if its not the fuse then it probably means its a bad turn/hazard switch assembly.

Dim tail light.


Brake light switch under dash and actuated by the brake pedal lever is out of adjustment or faulty. Adjust or replace it and you'll have your brake lights back. The dim tail lights may just be that you have possible replaced them with the wrong bulbs or the ground to light housing is faulty.

Brake lights won't come on


If all 3 lights don't come on, it's most likely the Brake light switch. Easy to get to- it rides against the pedal arm. This was a well known problem over the years, my 02' had not one but TWO recalls on it. Recall might be expired, contact a stealership...

2004 grand am brake lights stay on all the time


Th first thing I would do is put one of the old tail lenses back into the car and see if everything is back to normal. If it is there is a problem with the new lenses you installed.

Led lights are very sensitive to proper power and ground. Bad grounds can make all kinds of weird things happen.

Having problems with brake lights. The hazard light and blinkers are working when applied. When I apply brake the centre light on hatch door works but the two side lights don't work


Well the fact the high mount/3rd brake light works proves brake light switch is working. I would suspect factory trailer connector wire which feeds off tailight is broken. Follow wire from plug back to left taillight where it is exposed to the elements.

Both brake lights and 3rd light in back window fail to light when brake is applied. tail lights do work when headlights are on.


it can be a few problems but i would start by checking the fuses. after that look under the dash where the brake pedal is. you will see a switch there that toggles on when you apply the brakes. i have to mention one other thing because i've had experience with it. check to make sure the bulbs are good. unless your car is equipped with a warning system or you check the brake lights often they may all be burned out over a period of time without you knowing it. a small trick to that is whenever you are backing up or near a something that you can see the back of your vehicle... apply the brakes... if you don't see lights on one or both sides it's time to start changing bulbs.
the tail lights working is independent of the brake lights as generally if it's the same bulb it will have two filiments.

99 neon running tail lights do not work but tail lights work when brakes are applied....help


what you are seeing is the bright filament on the bulb working,
the tail light bulbs have two filaments in each bulb,one is dim and one is bright,the bright one is to the brake and turn signals,that way when you step on the brake with the tail lights on the same lens light up brighter to warn drivers behind you..
you need to check the fuses in the car for tail lights first,see if your plate light is on that will tell you the bulbs are just blown

When brakes are applied parking and dash board lights come on.when headlights are on,brake lights and tail lights do not work.very first symptom was an intermittent tail or brake light out indicator...


you might have an open ground wire on your brake/tail lights .. when you apply the brakes then power would flow thru the brake light (not see ground) so would then provide power backwards thru the parking light (common ground open) to all the other things connected to the parking lights .. like the other parking lights and dash ... when you turn power on to those things (headlights on) then there is 12 volts on both sides of the light .. thats why the lights quit working ... if the missing ground is the problem then most of the lights that are improperly turning on should be at a lowered brightness level.. interesting problem .. its also possible to have a brake light bulb that has the common ground open inside or not making connection with its socket .. i would start by removing the brake lamps and see if the problem goes away .. if it does look for a broken ground or damaged lamp ..

Right tail light not working when pressing brake w/ lights on.


There should be at least 2 bulbs in the light assembly. One light is the light that is on when you turn on your headlights with out the brake pressed, the other light only lights up while you press on the brake. Make sure you are replacing the correct bulb. You may have been replacing the bulb that stays on. Your lights may be set up to turn off the light that stays on when the headlights are on while pressing the brakes.
