You have a brake switch going bad or is already bad. i believe it to be brake switch B. this switch controls your brake lights while brake switch A controls your cargo brake light.

Brake light on top works tells me the switch at the pedal is ok. Turn signals working tells me that the turn signal filaments have power.

I would try changing the bulbs and if that doesn't work have an electrical shop trace the wires and check for power on the brake light circuit in the back.

No brake, turn signal, or flashers at rear of 2006 chevy express 2500


Sounds like a bad turn signal switch. I bet if you wiggle the turn signal lever while you have your foot on the brake pedal the left and right brake lights ill intermittently work.

Rear brake light top not working


You must replace the whole light assembly in this year, the part is very expensive and a dealer only item if still avail (which I doubt). You need to drop the headliner down in the rear to access the light fixture assembly by removing the trim at rate of cargo area.

Checked fuses, dash lights don't work, gauges do work, tail lights don't work, turn signals work and brake lights work.head lights work but no running lights except when using turn signal. help.


take out the plastic panel on the drivers side in the cargo area. tucked inside the body where the taillight wiring is you will find about 6 to 8 wiring plugs. disconect all of them (dont forget to mark them as you disconnect each one. put in a new fuse and turn on the ignition. start connecting them one by one, you will hear the fuse blow when you connect the one thats bad. it should be either the rear window defroster or the rear wiper. it may sound like a lot of work, but it's pretty simple. hope that works it did for me.

I replaced light bulb and brake switch is there anything else that needs to be rp;acedto make brake light work


If you have already check fuses, and brake light's still don't work, it's going to be your turn signal switch, the brake light circit runs thought the brake light switch, if your car has a middle top brake light in back of rear window, most of the time that one will still work, and the turn signal will also work, but not the rear ones brake light's, when turn signal switch is bad, hope this was very helpful.

REAR BRAKE LIGHTS DO NOT COME ONLY TAP LIGHT IS


Check for power at the turn signal switch. White wire comes from brake switch switch into the turn signal switch. The brake light switch is working because the high mount brake light is working..right? Do the turn signals work ok? if so, then the wiring is OK. The brake signal wires that come out of the turn signal switch are dark green(right) and yellow (left).
