Check the brake pedal switch by connecting a test light to it and ground.

When the pedal depresses you might hear a click or see the button depress.

The test light should light or not light changing as you press and release the pedal.

Another way to do this is to change the brake pedal switch and see if it works.

I hope this helps.

1997 Subaru Impreza Tail lights work but brake lights don't even though the Hatch brake light is working


Hi,
So, both sides are not working? Check for voltage @ the brake light bulb to see if you're getting power. Also, look in the fuses.

check out the online Subaru forums, too.

I have a 1990 Lexus LS 400 and the middle rear tail lights are not working but they do work when I press on the brakes. I checked the fuse box by the driver seat and all fuses looked good. What do you guys...


the bulb for the back light and brake is in a single bulb so if one is bad the other will keep working take out the bulb and see it in day light you will see one of the springs in the bulb is broken replace this bulb

I have a 2000 dodge intrepid es 3.2 my brake lights stopped working, i changed the bulbs, and the brake pedal switch i checked the fuses? am i missing something?


I had 1990 Dodge Shadow that had the brake lights go out too. The problem was the cheap way that the bulb holder was made. I had to solder a wire to the outside metal case for the lights to work. If you know a bit about batteries and voltages, check that the bulb contacts are getting voltage, and that the wires are in tact all the way to the bulb.

My 1990 Lexus sat with a dead battery for about a year. I replaced battery and it started right up, but I can't get the shifter out of park and into gear.


From sitting, the brake shift interlock solenoid has probably become stuck. There is a manual release near the shifter--you merely insert a key to push down the release. That will get you moving. With the engine running, try gently and rapidly pumping the brake pedal to get the solenoid moving freely. Be sure the brake lights are working.
In the worst case, you'll need to open the console to free the mechanism or replace the interlock.

How to replace third brake light on 1997 lexus es 300


"To get access to the 3rd brake light:

- Place each hand against both sides of the plastic housing, and firmly grasp and pull the housing towards you. It might not budge at first, but it should move once you get a good grip on it.

- Pull the housing out just enough so that you can see the brake light bulb and stick your hand underneath. Ignore the speaker wires.

- Pull out the old bulb from the socket (it plugs in/out). Wear rubber gloves when handling the new bulb, and put the new one into the socket.

- Reverse the steps here to put the 3rd brake light back into place. Test out your brake light, and you're done" quoted from lexusk8 @ clublexus.com (great forum)

1991 Lexus ES250 Rear Brake Lights


first of all the brake lights are always in the rear only!!. take the light bulb out and while some one is appling the brake pedal check to see if yo have power at only one terminal of the socket, then release the brake pedal and make sure yu dont have power at the same terminal , now if you had poer in one of the terminal then you have to replace the socket for the brake light bulbs.

look under the dash board right at the brake pedal switc where the brake light switch is located and make sure that the wires are not broken, you can also do a quick check by just disconnecting the brake light seitch and then jump the terminal off of the brake switch and you should have light if the light works this way then you have to replace the brake light seitch
