Check the fuse for your brake light circuit. get the manual out of the glove box and see which fuse operates the brake lights if not marked on the fuse box itself. if blown, replace with same amp fuse. if it blows again you have a short in the brake light circuit and you will have to run it down. look for any bare or exposed or burnt(melted) sections of wire. if its not obvious you will have to use a meter to check for certain and isolate the location of the short. good luck. never put a larger fuse in the fuse box than whats recommended as the wires are matched to the fuse and you could cause serious damage to the wiring circuit if you do that. find the problem and fix it properly.

2 of 3 brake light bulbs dont light up when brake pressed only when lights are on do all 3 bulbs light up, only on the right side, left bulbs turn on, I changed fuses and bulbs no luck


Chek the light harness ground connection, for each "faulty" bulb. l suspect the brake lights are detecting the gound from the running lights, which is the only time they all function.

Regular lights work but when u press brake only passenger brake light goes on, i changed the brake bulb which was bad but still no brake light when pushing brake on driver side


sounds like you have a short in the drivers side brake light. it may be due to corrosion in the bulb inlet.try cleaning the bulb socket itself with wd40 or add bulb grease to the bulb. you may have a broken wire to it also.check with a test light to confirm you have power to the bulb when brakes applied,this will take 2 people 1 to press brakes and1 to check for current with a test light at the tail light itself. you may only have corrosion in the brake light bulb socket,so,,do this 1st. with lights off,, remove the bulb on driversside, add a little bulb grease to your bulb,insert it into the bulb socket,and then remove the bulb again,do this 3 times,make sure the bulbs getting connection. then apply the brakes and see if the light comes on. thank you for choosing fixya.com

Brake lights on 1996 maxima


you need to check the bulb first, they may be busted. if not , check the brake switch located where the brake pedal is. near the top part, so you have to look under your dashboard.
