Question about 2001 Chevrolet S-10

2001 S-10 No Tail/Brake Lights

I have a 2001 S-10 that has turn lights but no brake or tail lights, but the light on the top of the cab works well. I have checked all fuses in the cab as well as under the hood but see no blown fuses. I have also checked all the wiring under the bumper and saw one ground not connected and was hoping that would be the resolve, but it wasnt. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Hello Dallas,

There is a possibility that both bulbs are burned out or the paste that GM seals the lamps sockets with is preventing a good connection between the contacts.

Remove the bulbs and test for power (with the brake pedal depressed or the running lights turned on.)

If your multi meter reads voltage, it's the lamps, if not...check for continuity on the brake light switch (connected wires removed.)
The headlight switch controls the running lights, the brake light switch controls the brake lights. Good grounds are also critical so make sure they have clean solid connections.

SOURCE: Tail lights don't work on 1998 Chevy Silverado.

check the wiring from the tailights back to the fuse panel, it sounds like an open connection. if i recall correctly check under the dash on the drivers side near the fuse panel for a bunch of wires in a bundle and look carefully for a wire or two that are cut/shorted/or seperated, you can also check under the drivers side kick panel by the hood release.

Turning signals and brake tail lights not work


If the center brake light works but not the others, and the bulbs are good, the problem is usually the turn signal switch.

Interior dash and running lights dont work but my signal and brake lights work else works


Look at fuse #18, a 15 amp fuse, in the fuse block. This fuse powers both the tail lights and instrument cluster lights. Usually both of these light systems are powered by the same fuse so when your cluster isn't lit up you'll know right away that your tail lights aren't working as it's not safe to drive without tail lights. Your brake, turn, and head lamps are powered by different circuits. Hope this helps and good luck!

Brake lights will not come on. It is not the bulb. The tail lights work.


The tail lights working would not necessarily mean that the brake light bulbs are good. If they are the type that have a double filament (ie: one filament for the tail light and another filament for the brake light ) the brake light filament could be bad and the tail lights still would work. If they are either single filament type bulbs or double filament type, I would check the bulb, fuses, and contact switch on the brake pedal.
