You only need to change the tail light fuse if it is blown. If you haven't checked it already, do that. Those stop/tail bulbs are 2 filament bulbs. One filament is for brake lights, and other filament is for the tail lights. So it is possible to have brake lights and no tails, if the filaments for the tail lights are burned out. But of course, it is unlikely that all the tail lights would be out and all the brake lights still work.

You may need a voltmeter to help solve the problem. It could be a problem in the headlight switch (a problem with the park light function), but is more likely a problem with the Lighting Control Module- or the Body Control Module-whichever your car is equipped with. GM first came out with the LCM, and a year or two later came out with the BCM. Both are mini-computers to control lighting and cabin functions. You would have to use a voltmeter and check things like power in and power out at the BCM of the park lights. You would thus need a wiring diagram to go along with the voltmeter. Those modules are located up under the dash-you can use google to see pictures of them, and maybe find locations.

The brake lights do not want to work. i have changed the brake switch under the dash and the bulbs on the tail lights.still nothing. i also, changed fuses.


does the high mounted brake light work? the brake switch has 2 contacts one for the high mount (LT BLUE/BLACK) and one for the tail brake lights. The tail/brake light wire is LIGHT BLUE. the main connector between the brake light switch and the tail lights is C208 which is located behind the rear seat, left side. So if there is power coming out of the brake switch OK and no power at the tail lights, check that connector. Hope this helps.

My brake lights do not come on when i press the brakes. i have changed the switch for the brake lights but I still get nothing, which wire do I need to change because the brake light wire on my 2000 Esteem...


If you have a meter.... check the bulb socket for 12V DC with someone applying the brake or watch for a 12V DC pulse on the meter when the meter leads are on the socket contact with the emergency flashers on. (+) lead to socket contact and ( - ) lead to chassis ground. If you have the 12V DC on the socket contact then there is a problem with the chassis ground wire.
The brake light socket has 2 terminals. One is for the tail light 12V DC power when the headlights are on and the other one is 12V DC only when the brake lights are supposed to be on. (i.e pulse hazard or brake applied light on)

Also check the BRAKE light fuse in the fuse box located on the front of the left kick panel wall drivers side with a black cover. (4" x 2.5") There is also a fuse and relay box on the left side of the engine compartment. (4" x 7")

The wire color connected to your NEW brake switch that leaves the switch for the tail lights is the same color on the rear of the car and terminates at the tail light assy quick disconnect connector.

Thanks for using FixYa.

sounds like wireing is shorted together. you need to trace down wires and check for bad spots in wireing. also be sure and check plug if you are set up for trailer lights.

Brake Light Control Module


91 Honda Accord has 2 separate tail lights on each side(total of 4 pieces). My problem stemmed from a faulty control module on the right hand side(passenger side). The module in question is located inside the smaller of the 2 tail light sections. In order to change the module you have to remove the tail light. There are 4 nuts holding in the taillight section and 2 phillips head screws holding the module in. The module on this side is 6 pin plug in. The one on the drivers side is a 5 pin plug in. Whole effort takes about 45 minutes. It is strictly plug and play.

No brake lights, fuses keep blowing and wont shift out of park


I would look for a wiring short in the trunk at the taillamp area, or, inspect the sockets for the taillamp bulbs for corrosion. In any case, you have a short circuit in the trunk area, also check the wire that comes from the body & goes up the trunk hinge on the driver side; that wire may be chafed, and it may be shorting out. Hope this helps; please get back to me if you need any further assistance.
