Yes its the switch on the back of the brake pedal,sometimes i would spray some oil up onto the switch and try it a couple of times see if the button loosens up make sure you wrap a wrag around the pedal before you spray oil on it as the last thing is to get the pedal covered in oil,if this fails replace switch not a dear item as they a universal.adrian,,,,,,,,,,,,,

I have a 2004 nissan titan. I am having a hard time getting my brakes to work. I have replaced the brake lights brake light switch. But still nothing I have tail lights and my turn signals work. But no...


Eric,
Does the break light on the top of the cab work? If so the fuse and stop lamp relay are ok.
If not the 10 amp fuse in fuse box (JB) maybe open # 20 Stop Lamp passenger side panel . If it is good there is a stop lamp relay (E12) in fuse box under hood from the manual it is the second one in from the left by the battery. Also there is a(VDC) Control Unit (E125) can't find where in the manual it is located.
You would think that the power from the battery , fuse switch to lights not, that is why I got the complete manual for the truck. hard to under stand at times.

Brake lights don't work on 95 crown victoria


Battery power is applied through 15A fuse 1 in the I/P fuse panel. It passes through the brake on/off switch and is routed through the multi-function switch to the stop lamps. When the brake on/off switch is closed, the stop lamps light. Possible failures include the fuse, the brake on/off switch, the multi-function switch, and the filaments of the multi-purpose rear lights.

2006 pontiac vibe brake light


All the lights stopping at the same time is not likely a fuse, it would be the brake light switch, the brake light switch is over the brake pedal near top of brake pedal arm under the dash. To test take a 12 volt test light ($5.00 at any auto parts store) and see if both side of the switch light the test light when the brake pedal is pushed, one side is hot with 12 volts without pushing the brake pedal down. The fuse location is in the owners manual but I am 99% sure that isn't the problem.

My brake lights are not working, the signal and 4 way flashers work but not the brake lights, what could be the issue? My suv is a 96 gmc jimmy sls 4 door, 4wd.


If both brake lights stopped working at the same time it could be the bulb even though the flashers work, but more than likely it is a fuse. Check your fuse panel in the dash and also the fuse box under the hood.

'99 Expedition brake lights aren't turning on when pressing brake


It could be a number of things, the good news is that none of them are serious or expensive to fix.

The normal components that make up your brake circut are:

1. The brake light fuse (In the fuse box and labeled as such)
2. The brake light switch/relay - also called a stop light switch. It's under the dash, right behind the brake pedal arm. When you push the brake, it sends a signal to the lights which turns them on. Think of the dome light switch in the door jam of your truck. When you open the door, it releases the switch and your dome light pops on. Same thing with the brake light switch.
3. The bulbs in the tail lights and the 3rd brake light.
If none of them are working, it's most likely a fuse or the switch/relay under the dash. If it's the switch, it's a $12 part. Obviously fuses are only a couple bucks.

Brake lighs stop working


Does the 3rd brake lamp illuminate? If so then your problem is multifunction switch.If it doesn't do the following checks.
Check for power to and thru the brake lamp switch itself.If you do not have power to the switch check fuse no. 10(20 amp) in the interior fuse panel.If you have power to the switch then depress brake pedal and make sure you have power thru the switch.If this is ok the check Fuse 22(20amp) with brake applied..

Rear brake lamps


I worked for a GM dealership,The problem maybe in the turn signal switch. The brake lamp circuit is wired into it to turn off cruise control.The third brake lamp is a circuit by itself.
