If you unplugged the brake light switch then they should go off but if you have a american build vehicle with auto transmission then their may be more than one wiring connection to the brake light switch?? The gearbox lock mechanism is wired through the brake light switch

My inside dashboard lights and back break light suddenly stopped working so cant drive it at night. Its a 99 honda prelude. I've tried changing the light bulbs and the fuse but still not working.


If the dash lights are on the same circuit as the park lights. Chances are if no dash lights... no park lights. Unless the dash light dimmer switch is on the low position. Check park light fuse. If no brake lights... which are on a different circuit and you are sure the bulbs are ok check brake light fuse. If fuse ok, unplug brake light switch at brake pedal and cross the terminals with a jumper. If brake lights work, the brake switch is faulty. If still no brake light operation suspect a wiring issue

I own a 2001 dodge dakota 4x4, my brake lights wont work, I have park lights, turn signals, back up lights, even 4 way flashers, I replaced the brake unit on the brake pedal, and checked all fuses, they...


Hi,

When you say you checked the fuse, was this just a visual check....or did you try replacing the fuse the a new one? Sometimes a visual check doesn't show minute breaks in the fuse wire, which gives a false appearance that the fuse is fine.

When the fuse is ok, this problem normally relates to the brake switch (mounted to the brake pedal). When this switch is replaced, you should always use a multimeter and check the switch is operating correctly when touching the brake pedal.

If the switch is ok, then suspect a faulty relay (if applicable to the Dakota).


Cheers,

Break lights dont work, I replace the lights how do you replace the break fuse what should I look for?


Bulbs are just like a fuse to for they blow out like a fuse. You have a brake light switch mounted near the brake pedal. Check that switch out with a OHM meter. Just unplug the switch and feed the Ohm meters contacts into the switch. Then push the brake pedal down to see if it completes the circuit. If a OL reading is showing at all times the switch is bad and needs to be replaced

Rear brake light are not working checked fuse under hood and passenger side dash could not find fuse by brake pedal


It could possibly be the actual switch that sits behind the break pedal. When the break pedal depresses or presses into the switch, the break lights go on or off. Not sure how much they run, but really easy to change. You could also check the switch with an ohm meter if available by making sure it breaks or runs continuity through the terminals when the switch is pressed/released. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Break lights wont come on


Check your fuses first. You can find out which fuse it is in your owners manual. The fuse box is under the dash on the drivers side. If the fuse is good check the brake light switch on the top part of the brake pedal You can unplug it and check for continuity through the switch with a multimeter while the pedal is depressed if you are familiar with one of those. if not just take a paper clip and jump the plug that you unpluged from the switch if the lights come on the switch is the problem if not you probably have a ground problem which will require in depth trouble shooting

Brake lights will not turn off on my 94 Nissan Altima


Your problem should be that the rubber stops that are mounted at the top of your break pedal came out or are worn down too much to press the buttons all the way in.
What they do is push the button that switches off your break lights when the break pedal is released (yes, kind of backwards way to design it, i know). That's why your lights stay on even when your car is off. I had to go to the junkyard to find replacements for mine and they are a ***** to replace.
They are chipped away easily by the break switches when your car shakes badly over a prolonged period of time. Like driving a couple of weeks on a bad front tire.

My brake lights will not go off unless I pull fuse #4 (Stop 10 A). The fuse that I pulled out looks like it is still good. I replaced it with a known good fuse but the lights stay on. What am I missing?


sounds like the brake light switch is bad. Look at the top of the break pedal arm and there should be a switch that is activited by the travel of the pedal.

If you have a mutlimeter handy, check it for continuity.....the circuit is open at rest and closes when you push on the pedal.

Tail lghts/brake lights


Isn't that mysterious? It took me a few weeks to figure it out. Look carefully under the break pedal. There is this device called a "break light switch". I hope that helps.

Running lights work but brake lights wont


there are only two things i can think of, i maybe wrong though.

1. check fuse on fuse box. guide on where the fuse is on the cover of the box.

2. check bulbs, brake lights should be double-contact. meaning there is a high and low light.
