I would say you have the incorrect bulbs in them.

Is there an adjustment for the stop light switch on a 99 GMC Yukon. I have replace it and my brake lights still do not work. Park lights work fine.


There is no adjustment. The park lights are on a different circuit than the brake lights.
Do you have a third brake light that works. Its also on a different circuit but works from the same switch. Do your turn signals work. They use the same filament as the brake lights.
Also, the brake light circuit goes through the multi function (turn signal) switch.

Since the brake lights and turn signal lights use the same filament in the bulbs, the brake light circuit will pass through the turn signal switch. When a turn signal is used it cancels out the brake light for that side.

Let me know if your third brake light and turn signals work in the rear.
Also, if youy have not already, check/change the bulbs. The type of sockets those lights are in also get burned so look at them well.

Brake lights don't work. Bulbs, fuses and brake light switch all okay. Center brake light works and the running lighs work.


Filaments on actual bulbs might be burned out, pull the socket out from the back of the tailights and do a visual check on the bulbs, replace if needed...

Left brake light doesn't work when brake depressed but comes on when headlights are turned on.


Hello, this indicates a problem with either the left rear bulb or the socket that the bulb goes into. remove the rear bulb and check, also take a good look at where the bulb plugs into the socket and make sure there are no corrosion or burn marks

We have no back up lights, no brake lights (except the 3rd brake light on the rear window), no license plate light and no tail lights. Replaced the 10 & 15 amp. fuse and it blew (almost) as fast as we...


Does the fuse blow without using the lights or only when you step on the brake? Only when you switch to reverse? Only when you turn on the parking lights? Troubleshoot to which lights are causing the fuse to blow, then access the bulb socket to see if it is shorting out. Remove the bulb(s) and look into the socket for corrosion and burning/melting. Replace any sockets that apprear to be damaged. Let me know if you have more questions.

Burning up both brake light sockets


First, I'd check voltage at brake light socket terminals. voltage should be the same or slightly lower than running voltage recommendation of about 13.5. (check running volts at battery with engine running. check brake light volts again with engine running, using the bulb terminal and socket as power source and ground.) If voltage is excessively high, I'd look at the charging system to find out why. If volts at battery are normal but volts at socket are low, I'd suspect a bad ground in the lighting circut, causing excessive resistance & heat, causing sockets to melt. If this is the case, re-ground both light sockets to a good ground source such as the chassis. (when attaching, scrape off paint, rust etc to insure good connection.

Brake lights quit working


Tail lights acting insane?

We had the same issue with our 2000 Pontiac Montana. Brake lights, turn signal lights, running lights, back-up lights and emergency flasher didn’t work at all or operated at random. The cause: poorly designed aluminum contacts on the tail light circuit board and wiring harness connector arced over and disintegrated with normal use.

Pull the tail lamp assembly, remove the electrical connector and look for burned contacts on the connector plug and the connector socket (they call this long plastic piece with the socket the circuit board: it includes the four bulb sockets. Replace the circuit board and the wiring connector.

You can DIY this job with basic auto mechanical/electrical skills and tools. The two circuit boards and the two connectors set me back $230 (2009 cost) for new parts. The electrical contacts on the factory replacement parts are improved.

I needed a T-30 torx driver to remove the tail light assembly (you need this to change out bulbs, too), wire cutters, wire strippers, electrical tape and an electrical lug crimper to do the job.

1999 jeep grand cherokee brake lights


I have a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee that I purchased only three months ago. It has already been in the shop three times in a month so I fee like I can help you with your problem. My rear brake light did the same thing and I just had to purchase the whole light socket. It only cost $13.00 from Jeep. I know your jeep is a 99' but the mechanic said that all Grand Cherokees from the last six years or so had the same problem. Changing the light bulb won't work. It will simply burn your bulb out. Simply buy the plastic socket that the bulb snaps in and that should fix your problem. It did for me.

Back break lights does not work, but the third light works. What could be the problem. It's not the bulbs, because they are good.


does this vehicle have a trailer wiring harness maybe the problem might be tied in with that if not check that your ground has a good clean contact also test the socket with a test light make sure the bulb is really good hope this helps.
