Rear brale lights not functional. center brake lght functional


Ok, trailer lights are basically separate circuits from the regular stop lights and same with the center brake light.

There is a brake light fuse located in the fusebox next to the battery in the engine compartment. Use a 12v test light to see if it becomes hot both sides of the fuse, when the brake is depressed.

12v Test lights can be bought at a auto parts store for less than $15. Do not get a "continuity light" as these are different. A test light, lights when you touch a terminal and voltage is present using the alligator clip attached to a good ground

Notice that the center stop light does not go through this fuse in the diagram.

I have included a wiring diagram for your vehicle.

If you find the brake light fuse blown, and it repeatedly blows, you have a short to ground from the fuse to the brake lights somewhere. First step is to check the brake lights for a short. and work your way back to the fuse.

1988 chevy 1500 everythingworks exept brake light turn signal ok tailghts ok no brake lights


Since the turns work in the back, that means the brake bulbs are good. Brake lights and turn signal lights share the same filament in the bulb.
There is a fuse for the brake lights. Then, there is a brake light switch on the brake pedal. You need a voltmeter or test light, after checking that fuse is good. Need to check if fuse has power on it. This is one of those fuses that are hot at all times-as long as battery is connected, voltage should be going through the fuse and up to the brake light switch. Check for power both places. The switch on the pedal is a simple on-off switch. When brake is depressed, the spring loaded switch is turned on-passing power on towards the brake lights.
But then the brake wire goes into the turn signal switch before going on to the brake bulbs...however, since your turns work good, I doubt if there is a problem in the turn switch. First check if the brake light switch is sending power on when switch is on.
Let me know what you find. Good luck.

My additional brake light is not working i have tested the brake unit and that works is there a seperate fuse for this or is it all on one fuse for all the brake lights


The third or High Mounted Brake Light runs straight off the brake light switch on the brake pedal arm. You say you tested the "brake unit"? I assume you mean the third brake light assembly, and if you get power there when someone steps on the brake pedal, then the bulbs are bad.

The power flow for the brake lights goes like this: Fuse ->Brake switch -> Turn signal switch -> Rear lights. The only difference is, if you have a 3rd brake light in your rear window, that gets its power directly from the brake switch. It does not go thru the signal switch first. So, if you are having a brake light problem, and your fuses are good, check the 3rd light in the rear window, if it lights up (assuming the bulbs are good, no one ever changes them), then the problem is most likely in the turn signal switch, hope this helps!

Have a 1999 Chev. Suburban. Problem is with brake lights. Top panel (on roof) works but neither side panel works. Replaced circut boards in tail lights, new bulbs, and all fuses are good. What next?


WITH A GOOD FUSE TESTER, TEST ALL THE FUSES FUSEBOX UNDER THE HOOD & INSIDE THE VEHICLE. IF THE FUSES ARE ALL GOOD WITH THE TESTER YOU MUST HAVE A BAD BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH OR A BAD TURN SIGNAL SWITCH. THE BRAKE LIGHT CIRCUIT GOES UP THROUGH THE TURN SIGNAL SWITCH & THEN TO THE BRAKE LIGHTS. FIRST OF ALL IS THE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH GOOD ? THE ORANGE WIRE FEEDS THE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH, THE WHITE WIRE PUTS POWER TO THE TURN SIGNAL SWITCH, SO THE LIGHTS CAN BE USED AS TURN LIGHTS OR BRAKE LIGHTS. , PUT A TESTER IN THE WHITE WIRE & PRESS ON THE BRAKE PEDAL. IF THE TEST LIGHT LIGHTS UP, BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH IS GOOD, BY THE WAY THE BRAKE LIGHT FUSE MAY BE LABELED" STOP", THE FUSE LABELED" BRAKE" IS FOR THE ABS SYSTEM. TO CHECK THE TURN SIGNAL SWITCH FOR BRAKE LIGHTS, REMOVE THE PLASTIC COVER FROM UNDER THE STEERING WHEEL, PRESS ON THE BRAKE PEDAL, PUT THE TESTER IN THE SMALL YELLOW WIRE, THEN THE SMALL GREEN WIRE. IF THERE IS NO POWER IN EITHER WIRE, THE TURN SIGNAL SWITCH IS BAD.

Center high-mounted stoplight is not working? Where is the relay?


If the two rear brake light are working on each side, then fuse and relay are good, check the bulb.

Locked gearshift, no brake lights


If you are SURE that the brake light fuse is good? If so, check the brake lamp switch above the brake pedal, see if it is somehow disconnected. Check for power, at both sides of the brake fuse...and, check for poweer coming into and out of the brake switch (when pushing the brake pedal) with a 12 volt testlight. If the brake fuse is good, and you have power coming TO the brake switch, and not out of it, you need to replace the brake light switch.
OTOH, the brake switch just might need a small adjustement, too...If power is at both sides.
Note that the brake light switch ALSO powers/releases the shifter lock solenoid. You cannot take it out of park without pressing on the brake pedal.
Hope this helps you solve your problem.
