Take the bulb out on the right side and test the terminals in the connector whilst someone else presses on the brakes. If you get 12 volts, then replace your bulb. If you don't get 12 volts, you will have to trace down the problem starting at the bulb. Usually a blown fuse or bad brake switch will cause the entire brake light unit to not function, so I am sure this has to be a wiring issue.

    Yes sir, this was very helpful. I thought it soo unlikely that 3 bulbs could all go out at the same time I was assuming it was something more serious. Like a wiring issue or brake switch issue. I switched some bulbs around and isolated the problem. My only concern is what made all three go out at the same time. Only time will tell.
    Thank you again for your help.

Where is the brake lightfuse located at on my 2004 envoy xl


There is only one fuse for the brake light, so if the passenger side is working, the fuse is OK. You most likely have a bad bulb, bad bulb socket or a wire issue. The circuit board that all of the rear light are mounted to also has had problems in the past.
BTW - the fuses for the rear light are under the rear seat.

The passenger side brake light, and passenger side (front and back) window control doesn't work is it a fuse?


Well, the short answer is no.
The lights and windows are are different fuses.
There's a slight chance you have a problem with a ground wire on that side, but I doubt the two problems are related.
I would check the light for power and ground, and look at the window switches for power and ground. The windows are powered thru the driver switch on most cars.

The middle back light doesnt work on my 2004 olds alero. what is that light and do i need it to work if both my brake lights work


I believe you are referring to the "Elevated Brake Light". These lights are mounted in various places depending on the vehicle. Most cars have them mounted on the back deck but it appears yours is mounted inside the trunk lid. In most states, a car must have all lights(including the elevated brake light) functioning to pass vehicle inspection.

Fthe tail light works but the brake light doesn't work, it probably is the module that has a circuit board. I have replaced it 2 or 3 times on my 2004 XL Envoy ... can I get a part number and location...


First let's determine which brake lights are not working. Does the high mounted brake light work? Do both left and right brake light not work? If none of the brake light work, the problem could be the brake light switch at the brake pedal OR fuse #12 in the underhood fuse panel.
If only the bake lights at the corner lamp assembly don't work, check fuse #34 in the rear fuse panel.
The module your are referring to is the circuit board located in each of the corner lamp assemblies, check on website www.compnine.com for the part number of this item. I don't believe this is your problem though.

On my 2004 accord EX, both rear brake lights don't work (center brake light bar does work). What is the fix? If a fuse, which one? If bulbs, are they hood mounted or fender mounted?


If the center light works then the brake light
switch is working. The brake light bulb is
inside the trunk. The bulb holder rotates
to lock in and out. Ck Autozone, they will
even help you install it.
